Hi Christian,

I can't find any license information with that reference, nor can I find 
contact information.  I'm not exactly sure what to say here; it seems to me 
that since it was released with the KDevelop source that it would be 
considered GPL, but I'm not a legal expert so I can't say for certain.

After reading through that C reference, it definitely needs some work.  
However, I don't see a problem using part of it for your project - 
particularly if you keep credit information intact.
