The original author appears to be Jason E. Stewart, with the bulk of subsequent contributions being from Ilya Zakharevich. I'm not sure how active either of those are in Perl these days. I made some small enhancements back in 2000-1, and I'm happy for my contributions to be available under any licence that the original authors would be happy with. Hugo

I’m the original developer, and — when I remember — I put a blob like this into my modules: This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself, either Perl version 5.8.2 or, at your option, any later version of Perl 5 you may have available. If this is not included in C::Scan, then by omission only. So, Hugo, feel free to use this license in your distributions. Yours, Ilya
