License lookup by stamp

As described in How LIDESC identifies licensing of a file "LIDESC license stamps" are specially formatted lines of text which positively identify each license covering a file. Multiple license stamps can appear in a single file when multiple licenses apply.

With the command line utility, you report and check license stamps by running

lidesc [-d {license-path} ] check file [file...]

Paste a stamp here:
