I've got a question that is likely not suited for this list, but I know
that there are people here who can guide me off-list.

Being a network engineer, I'm far from a developer. With that said, I've
written numerous network automation programs (mostly in Perl), and have
developed several small patches for software written in C related to ISP
operations (including the OS itself).

I'm looking for advice on how I can take all of my code, and license it
into the public domain. I'm sure that most people won't have any
interest in it, but I really want to ensure that what I have done is
freely accessible.

All of my code is pretty well separated into different files that
contain different functions, so isolating portions of my programs that
use modules or functions that are external is not a problem.

GPL seems too verbose legally for me. Can the BSD license fit into any
code, no matter what language it is in, and if so, can I have my code
overlooked by someone who can verify that the BSD license will fit?
