Eric, this comparison is not correct. I would say this Bentley is standing in your garage and you’ve been driving it for years. But right now the road law demands that you must install additional filter in the Bentley muffler. Are you going to ask permission from Bentley producers? And what are you going to do if now there’re no Bentley producers?
Can you change a switch in your desk lamp (you don’t like it’s color)?
Can you install a remote control in your old TV or you need to ask permission from TV factory?
Can you disassemble this TV to learn how it works?
If somebody published a new algorithm to calculate square root, does it mean you cannot change it in your program when your changing makes it twice faster?
In fact, nobody convince me, that I prohibited to improve somebody’s code for my own using. For example, long time ago I changed code in Fortran 77 compilator for IBM370 for supporting Russian letters. By the way, I didn’t even use disassembler, because on IBM370 you could read code right in hex notations. Am I a culprit?
Another example – FPD 2.5 cannot open tables with memo created in VFP. Is it illegal to change one byte to fix this problem? Without this correction I couldn’t even start to work with VFP. By the way, who is a culprit in this situation – me or FP developers who put me in such a position?

I would be glad to continue this discussion.

Regards,
Sergey
