Is the source code for /opt/vc/bin/edidparser available?

Mon Jul 29, 2013 4:09 pm

Sorry for the 'newbie" question, but is the source code for edidparser or any of the other utilities in the /opt/vc/bin directory?

My guess is no, because I just noticed the LICENSE file in the /opt/vc directory which shows that the software is copy-written by Broadcom:
Note: this licence applies to the binaries in the bin, sbin, and lib
sub-directories. The header files in the include sub-directory and the example
code in src describes their licence at the top of the file.

Ugh! :( if the code isn't available.

The source for most of the contents of /opt/vc/bin is available as source here:
https://github.com/raspberrypi/userland

Unfortunately edidparser (and vcdbg) are currently missing from userland.
I've got permission to release the source, and will do so when I get a chance.
(It is complicated as these binaries link with source files from the GPU side, so will need a bit of dependency/header pruning to get them released).

As Dom indicated, there is a certain amount of work needed to get the source released (and buildable), but he is on the case. No schedule as yet.

Give the man a break! :)
As he says, there are interdependencies on the GPU side, so it's not a trivial task.

No, I can't think of anything funny that won't offend someone if they want it to...
