Any help we can get collecting data from you and/or others would be a great help. What OBD hardware do you have?
I am specificallly intereted in PIDs to open doors, does anyone have any information on any car about this? I also like to pay for it...
Are you planning on doing OBD1 (aldl) this sounds like a real project i can get my teeth into. its like the Smoothwall of the OBD world.
I would like to suggest you add connector/interface types to the database to aid newbies like myself. A simple tick box to say such and such cable/interface works on this VIN.
I am having trouble finding hardware/software to run on my 1995 Buick Riviera, it has an OBDII conector running OBD1 ALDL data. I have a cable and EFilive works but is very limited and restrictive untill you shell out 175 dollars for a licence.
If you use LPGL it specifically says that the end user is allowed to do a reverse engineer of the interface between the proprietary software and the LGPL'd library. The end user is allowed to modify and RE that part of the proprietary software, you cannot revoke that privilege with a EULA of any sort.
So if you use LPGL'd code, you're allowed to reverse engineer the software, since its difficult to extract only the portions that interfaced to the LGPL'd code, then its ok to reverse the whole thing.
Plus a lot of people confuse the library part, a DLL falls under an OK use of the LGPL, but statically linked library would mean you'd have to give out source/obj etc to allow the end user to recreate the proprietary software with a newer version of the LGPL'd code.
If the software statically links the LPGL'd code, and doesn't give out a way of recreating the software with newer or modified versions of the LPGL'd code, then the makers are the ones in the wrong.
This is one of the reasons LGPL/GPL software is banned at most large commercial software houses.
You can write anything you want in a contract or EULA, it doesn't make it binding or override the law.
What happened to this thread?
Did someone get a visit from Tony Soprano or something?
I was starting to get excited.
