I'm interested how can I get my program under the terms of GPL license? I read the GPL website (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html
) so basically what I know is that I got to write a Copyright line into the beginning of the source and I also got to write the notice in the source. Right? But what I don't exactly understand what does this mean: "each file should have at least the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found." What kind of pointer? Like in C language? Or just a message that appears somewhere during program runtime or just simply the notice should be the part of each source file?
Or is it enogh let's say just making a COPYING file and put all the GPL terms in it and the template Copyright notice like usually in the case of linux software sources?
Is that all? I f I'll do all these things then my program has achieved the GPL?
