Third-party libraries, compilers, and tools

This page collects links to full verbatim texts of the licenses of all third-party libraries (TPLs), and the list of compilers and tools used by Quinoa.

TPLs and external tools

An important distinction between TPLs and tools is that TPLs are libraries whose source we directly use, e.g., via include files and/or (static and dynamic) linking, while from a tool we do not include source code nor link its object files, only build it and use it as a separate (external) executable.
