Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Am I allowed to explain the source code publicly?

I am currently reading though the source code of Ue4 and I had the idea of doing an in-depth analysis of some parts of the source code. For example I would like to explain how the MovementComponent works in Ue4.

But in order to explain the logic behind some concepts I would need to be able to debug the source code line by line and I would probably exceed the limit of 30 lines.

Would this be legal?

As you've likely seen, the EULA permits public posting of UE4 source code for genuine discussion purposes in snippets of up to 30 lines in length. But one post could contain multiple snippets.

I forgot to add that I want to explain it in a video.

I think the same answer would apply to video
