Is there documentation of a software component?

Hello! Write the application, you must add the description of some of the Windows commands. In the EULA it is written that the usage of components is not permitted. So: is the documentation caused by the HELP command, a component of the software?

Solution
I do not understand what you really want. So the answer to the letter of the question he asked.

Yes, in most known to me of license agreements the word "software" in Russian is passed as "software" means all supply work as a whole in the diversity of its components: the actual computer program, the graphical user interface elements, audio-visual parts, documentation and other texts in natural languages, the illustrations to them.

That does not negate the fact that it may be otherwise — it is necessary to read the contract.

If you are confused by the word "software" in relation to the text in human language, we first note that in the English original of the word, and not at all — the so-called "soft" (soft) products (wares) is all that is opposed to "solid" (hard) "products", that is, the equipment ("hardware").

And secondly, nothing in it and no — legalis differs from everyday language, which introduces all sorts of counterintuitive terms, and then strictly adhere to them. In the same copyleft license GNU object known contract not named "software" and "program" or "library", that is, a set of icons "Advaita" according to its license is a "library", and nothing.

But there is more.

I think through your question betrays a confidence, that if the owners of the non-free something you forgot to deny you that?

For pity's sake! The whole point of the copyright monopoly is that you *and* everything is forbidden, but to use the work on purpose for their own purposes (roughly: read a book, listen to music, the program to execute). And the license is so called "license" that it is a permissive document, always return to you any rights over these.

who would doubt it? - arturo_Armstrong43 commented on June 27th 19 at 15:32
In the license agreement in paragraph enumeration of limitations concerned with this part: "separate use or virtualize features of the software." From this line, and raises the question. - gianni54 commented on June 27th 19 at 15:35
the place this obviously does not help to answer the question in the form as specified.

But I and did not understand — want-you what?

Quote the reference to a non-free program? Well, the quote in justified Ob EME is not forbidden — what do you care what it says in the contract.

But on the other hand, if you understand that the volumes of citation exceeds reasonable limits, then again — why the heck do you read those eight words, whereas the only thing you would be useful to find in the contract is explicit permission. It is there? Apparently not, otherwise you would have already seen. - arturo_Armstrong43 commented on June 27th 19 at 15:38

No, it's the result of "software components". As the cat Matroskin - the milk from my cows.
But to borrow pieces of documentation without reference to and provide for her is a crime.
Not marry her, and to refer to information in a particular case. Thanks for the reply.

P. S: and if the result is the documentation? - tyreek_Heidenreich commented on June 27th 19 at 15:31
Sylvester is, without a doubt, the authority. :-)

But seriously, it seems to me that you carelessly read the question — comrade asks not about the result of the programme, and about the certificate that comes along with it. - arturo_Armstrong43 commented on June 27th 19 at 15:34
"here: is the documentation caused by the HELP command, a software component?" : really? - gianni54 commented on June 27th 19 at 15:37
, that is, you believe that "the "HELP" command" runs maxgeneration documentation? O_o - arturo_Armstrong43 commented on June 27th 19 at 15:40
: Yes, I believe that the help command causes a program to give something (milk?), and that something is the product of a program for which it was made.
And Yes, the help command launches "macgeneration" documentation. If by "macgeneration" do you understand any instruction to the computer to do something. I suspect that you are confusing the meaning of the two words "make" and "invent", so substitute the verb "generate", which in certain situations can serve as a replacement for any of the mentioned words, however, nullifies the difference between them.
May surprise you, but there are programming languages which are literally "generate" documentation of your code. For example python. And is an integral feature of this program.
P. S. I Recommend to familiarize with the basic philosophy that would distinguish causation. - gianni54 commented on June 27th 19 at 15:43
@AxianLTD> Yes, I believe that the help command causes a program to give something (milk?)

No, documentation.

> and that something is a product of the program

And I believe that person.

> If by "macgeneration" do you understand any instruction to the computer to do something.

No, under the "engine generator" I understand the program-generator of text in human language (well, for example, Markov).

> I recommend to familiarize with the basics of philosophy...

Aw, snap! So you will those who believe that having studied the "philosophy" they are now able to judge about everything from astrophysics to law? No, I'll pass. - arturo_Armstrong43 commented on June 27th 19 at 15:46
No my friend, I am one of those who program for more than 30 years ;-) - tyreek_Heidenreich commented on June 27th 19 at 15:49
