Tc/Tk 的软件许可（Software License）
Tcl/Tk本身使用的是 Tcl/Tk License Terms
按照 http://wiki.tcl.tk/2530 的说法，这是一个类似于BSD的license，比GPL协议限制更少。
In even simpler language: Paragraph 1. It's ours. Paragraph 2. You can use it, modify it, give it away, or sell it. But only if you tell people about these terms. Paragraph 3. Don't sue us if it doesn't work. Paragraph 4. We don't have to fix it, either. Paragraph 5. Even if the Government uses it, we can use it ourselves, give it away, or sell it.
Tcl/Tk License Terms
The following terms apply to the all versions of the core Tcl/Tk releases, the Tcl/Tk browser plug-in version 2.0, and TclBlend and Jacl version 1.0. Please note that the TclPro tools are under a different license agreement. This agreement is part of the standard Tcl/Tk distribution as the file named "license.terms".
