wow- i did not know that PD-vanilla was BSD and not GPL. as for cyclone, i
never checked the license before so that is excellent news. does this mean
then that if you use libpd and cyclone you can theoretically get it on the
App Store as it is now, or would you have to compile from source for it to
run on iOS? my gut says you'd have to recompile (make) because iOS devices
are ARM based, not X86 based.

i apologize in advance if i'm seeming dense about this. i'm not a
programmer, and i've been getting a lot of conflicting information about
running any of pd-extended at all in libpd and being able to sell on the
iOS App Store. literally until this moment the only external i knew that
would run is expr~, based on everything i've read so far, so this is very
helpful information, at least for me anyway.
