  42  
  43   Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.,

  45   Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
  46   of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
  47  
  48                              Preamble
  49  
  50    The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
  51  freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
  52  License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
  53  software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
  54  General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
  55  Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
  56  using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
  57  the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
  58  your programs, too.
  59  
  60    When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
  61  price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
  62  have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
  63  this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
  64  if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
  65  in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
  66  
  67    To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
  68  anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
  69  These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
  70  distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
  71  
  72    For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
  73  gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
  74  you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
  75  source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
  76  rights.
  77  
  78    We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
  79  (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
  80  distribute and/or modify the software.
  81  
  82    Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
  83  that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
  84  software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
  85  want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
  86  that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
  87  authors' reputations.
  88  
  89    Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
  90  patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
  91  program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
  92  program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
  93  patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
  94  
  95    The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
  96  modification follow.
  97  
  98                      GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
  99     TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
 100  
 101    0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
 102  a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
 103  under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
 104  refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
 105  means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
 106  that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
 107  either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
 108  language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
 109  the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
 110  
 111  Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
 112  covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
 113  running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
 114  is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
 115  Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
 116  Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
 117  
 118    1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
 119  source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
 120  conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
 121  copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
 122  notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
 123  and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
 124  along with the Program.
 125  
 126  You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
 127  you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
 128  
 129    2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
 130  of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
 131  distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
 132  above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
 133  
 134      a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
 135      stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
 136  
 137      b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
 138      whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
 139      part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
 140      parties under the terms of this License.
 141  
 142      c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
 143      when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
 144      interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
 145      announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
 146      notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
 147      a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
 148      these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
 149      License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
 150      does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
 151      the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
 152  
 153  These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
 154  identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
 155  and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
 156  themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
 157  sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
 158  distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
 159  on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
 160  this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
 161  entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
 162  
 163  Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
 164  your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
 165  exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
 166  collective works based on the Program.
 167  
 168  In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
 169  with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
 170  a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
 171  the scope of this License.
 172  
 173    3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
 174  under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
 175  Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
 176  
 177      a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
 178      source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
 179      1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
 180  
 181      b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
 182      years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
 183      cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
 184      machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
 185      distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
 186      customarily used for software interchange; or,
 187  
 188      c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
 189      to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
 190      allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
 191      received the program in object code or executable form with such
 192      an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
 193  
 194  The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
 195  making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
 196  code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
 197  associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
 198  control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
 199  special exception, the source code distributed need not include
 200  anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
 201  form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
 202  operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
 203  itself accompanies the executable.
 204  
 205  If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
 206  access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
 207  access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
 208  distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
 209  compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
 210  
 211    4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
 212  except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
 213  otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
 214  void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
 215  However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
 216  this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
 217  parties remain in full compliance.
 218  
 219    5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
 220  signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
 221  distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
 222  prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
 223  modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
 224  Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
 225  all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
 226  the Program or works based on it.
 227  
 228    6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
 229  Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
 230  original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
 231  these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
 232  restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
 233  You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
 234  this License.
 235  
 236    7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
 237  infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
 238  conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
 239  otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
 240  excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
 241  distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
 242  License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
 243  may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
 244  license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
 245  all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
 246  the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
 247  refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
 248  
 249  If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
 250  any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
 251  apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
 252  circumstances.
 253  
 254  It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
 255  patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
 256  such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
 257  integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
 258  implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
 259  generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
 260  through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
 261  system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
 262  to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
 263  impose that choice.
 264  
 265  This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
 266  be a consequence of the rest of this License.
 267  
 268    8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
 269  certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
 270  original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
 271  may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
 272  those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
 273  countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
 274  the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
 275  
 276    9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
 277  of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
 278  be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
 279  address new problems or concerns.
 280  
 281  Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
 282  specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
 283  later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
 284  either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
 285  Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
 286  this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
 287  Foundation.
 288  
 289    10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
 290  programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
 291  to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
 292  Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
 293  make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
 294  of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
 295  of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
 296  
 297                              NO WARRANTY
 298  
 299    11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
 300  FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
 301  OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
 302  PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
 303  OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
 304  MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
 305  TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
 306  PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
 307  REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
 308  
 309    12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
 310  WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
 311  REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
 312  INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
 313  OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
 314  TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
 315  YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
 316  PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
 317  POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
 318  
 319                       END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
 320  
 321              How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
 322  
 323    If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
 324  possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
 325  free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
 326  
 327    To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
 328  to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
 329  convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
 330  the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
 331  
 332      <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
 333      Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
 334  
 335      This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
 336      it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
 337      the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
 338      (at your option) any later version.
 339  
 340      This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
 341      but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
 342      MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
 343      GNU General Public License for more details.
 344  
 345      You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
 346      with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
 347      51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.
 348  
 349  Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
 350  
 351  If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
 352  when it starts in an interactive mode:
 353  
 354      Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
 355      Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
 356      This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
 357      under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
 358  
 359  The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
 360  parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
 361  be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
 362  mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
 363  
 364  You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
 365  school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
 366  necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
 367  
 368    Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
 369    `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
 370  
 371    <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
 372    Ty Coon, President of Vice
 373  
 374  This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
 375  proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
 376  consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
 377  library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
 378  Public License instead of this License.
