suppose I am hired to develop a piece of software that solves differential equations, and I use SageMath to make the programming. Since SageMath is GPL'ed, should my software be GPL'ed too? This question is more of a technicality: I understand (some of) the GPL terms, but there is also the following situation: A programming language that is GPL'ed can be used to create executables that can be commercial. For example, if Python was GPL'ed, I could create a program to solve differential equations, and still sell my Python software (my code), but if I were to create a new language by making modifications to Python, the new language should be GPL'ed.
In that case, considering SageMath as a programming language, can I write commercial software that uses SageMath to solve a problem?
Thanks in advanced for your answers!!!
