10 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
11 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
12 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
13
14          Preamble
15
16  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
17freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
18License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
19software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
20General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
21Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
22using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
23the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
24your programs, too.
25
26  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
27price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
28have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
29this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
30if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
31in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
32
33  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
34anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
35These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
36distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
37
38  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
39gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
40you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
41source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
42rights.
43
44  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
45(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
46distribute and/or modify the software.
47
48  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
49that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
50software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
51want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
52that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
53authors' reputations.
54
55  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
56patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
57program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
58program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
59patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
60
61  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
62modification follow.
63
64        GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
65   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
66
67  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
68a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
69under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
70refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
71means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
72that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
73either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
74language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
75the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
76
77Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
78covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
79running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
80is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
81Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
82Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
83
84  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
85source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
86conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
87copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
88notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
89and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
90along with the Program.
91
92You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
93you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
94
95  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
96of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
97distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
98above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
99
100    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
101    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
102
103    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
104    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
105    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
106    parties under the terms of this License.
107
108    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
109    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
110    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
111    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
112    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
113    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
114    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
115    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
116    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
117    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
118
119These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
120identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
121and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
122themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
123sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
124distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
125on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
126this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
127entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
128
129Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
130your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
131exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
132collective works based on the Program.
133
134In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
135with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
136a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
137the scope of this License.
138
139  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
140under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
141Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
142
143    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
144    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
145    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
146
147    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
148    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
149    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
150    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
151    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
152    customarily used for software interchange; or,
153
154    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
155    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
156    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
157    received the program in object code or executable form with such
158    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
159
160The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
161making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
162code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
163associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
164control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
165special exception, the source code distributed need not include
166anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
167form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
168operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
169itself accompanies the executable.
170
171If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
172access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
173access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
174distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
175compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
176
177  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
178except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
179otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
180void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
181However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
182this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
183parties remain in full compliance.
184
185  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
186signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
187distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
188prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
189modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
190Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
191all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
192the Program or works based on it.
193
194  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
195Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
196original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
197these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
198restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
199You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
200this License.
201
202  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
203infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
204conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
205otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
206excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
207distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
208License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
209may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
210license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
211all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
212the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
213refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
214
215If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
216any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
217apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
218circumstances.
219
220It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
221patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
222such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
223integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
224implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
225generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
226through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
227system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
228to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
229impose that choice.
230
231This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
232be a consequence of the rest of this License.
233
234  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
235certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
236original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
237may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
238those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
239countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
240the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
241
242  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
243of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
244be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
245address new problems or concerns.
246
247Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
248specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
249later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
250either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
251Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
252this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
253Foundation.
254
255  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
256programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
257to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
258Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
259make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
260of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
261of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
262
263          NO WARRANTY
264
265  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
266FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
267OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
268PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
269OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
270MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
271TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
272PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
273REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
274
275  12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
276WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
277REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
278INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
279OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
280TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
281YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
282PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
283POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
284
285         END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
286
287      How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
288
289  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
290possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
291free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
292
293  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
294to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
295convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
296the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
297
298    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
299    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
300
301    This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
302    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
303    the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
304    (at your option) any later version.
305
306    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
307    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
308    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
309    GNU General Public License for more details.
310
311    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
312    with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
313    51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.
314
315Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
316
317If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
318when it starts in an interactive mode:
319
320    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
321    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
322    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
323    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
324
325The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
326parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
327be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
328mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
329
330You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
331school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
332necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
333
334  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
335  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
336
337  <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
338  Ty Coon, President of Vice
339
340This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
341proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
342consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
343library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
344Public License instead of this License.
