For Robert Watkins,

TO clear up what is Illegal about the languages. Matrix Equipment
(specifically cyberdecks are illegal, highly illegal in fact).
Programs are illegal, to quote Shadowtech, pg 104:

Category CD: Class D Matrix Technology
This includes all unregistered cyberdecks and Matrix program software.
Special licenses are available to legitimate, registered security and
law-enforcement agencies.

Possession of this stuff gets you 8,000Y and 2 yrs.

So I classified the languages and libraries as matrix programming
software. I mentioned that permits can be acquired for languages and

I am glad you liked the post.

Another thing came to me as I was writing the post. A library file
would really make a great Shadowrun, OR payment for a decker.

Hey, maybe there is something there. Its forming, its forming....

OH! back to work!
