27 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
28 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
32 The license agreements of most software companies try to keep users
33 at the mercy of those companies. By contrast, our General Public
34 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
35 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. The
36 General Public License applies to the Free Software Foundation's
37 software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it.
38 You can use it for your programs, too.
40 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
41 price. Specifically, the General Public License is designed to make
42 sure that you have the freedom to give away or sell copies of free
43 software, that you receive source code or can get it if you want it,
44 that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free
45 programs; and that you know you can do these things.
47 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
48 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
49 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
50 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
52 For example, if you distribute copies of a such a program, whether
53 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
54 you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
55 source code. And you must tell them their rights.
57 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
58 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
59 distribute and/or modify the software.
61 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
62 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
63 software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
64 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
65 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
66 authors' reputations.
68 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
69 modification follow.
71 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
72 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
74 0. This License Agreement applies to any program or other work which
75 contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be
76 distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The
77 "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based
78 on the Program" means either the Program or any work containing the
79 Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications. Each
80 licensee is addressed as "you".
82 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source
83 code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
84 appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
85 disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this
86 General Public License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any
87 other recipients of the Program a copy of this General Public License
88 along with the Program. You may charge a fee for the physical act of
89 transferring a copy.
91 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of
92 it, and copy and distribute such modifications under the terms of Paragraph
93 1 above, provided that you also do the following:
95 a) cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that
96 you changed the files and the date of any change; and
98 b) cause the whole of any work that you distribute or publish, that
99 in whole or in part contains the Program or any part thereof, either
100 with or without modifications, to be licensed at no charge to all
101 third parties under the terms of this General Public License (except
102 that you may choose to grant warranty protection to some or all
103 third parties, at your option).
105 c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when
106 run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use
107 in the simplest and most usual way, to print or display an
108 announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice
109 that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a
110 warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these
111 conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this General
112 Public License.
114 d) You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a
115 copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
116 exchange for a fee.
118 Mere aggregation of another independent work with the Program (or its
119 derivative) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring
120 the other work under the scope of these terms.
122 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a portion or derivative of
123 it, under Paragraph 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
124 Paragraphs 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
126 a) accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
127 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of
128 Paragraphs 1 and 2 above; or,
130 b) accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
131 years, to give any third party free (except for a nominal charge
132 for the cost of distribution) a complete machine-readable copy of the
133 corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of
134 Paragraphs 1 and 2 above; or,
136 c) accompany it with the information you received as to where the
137 corresponding source code may be obtained. (This alternative is
138 allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
139 received the program in object code or executable form alone.)
141 Source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making
142 modifications to it. For an executable file, complete source code means
143 all the source code for all modules it contains; but, as a special
144 exception, it need not include source code for modules which are standard
145 libraries that accompany the operating system on which the executable
146 file runs, or for standard header files or definitions files that
147 accompany that operating system.
149 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, distribute or transfer the
150 Program except as expressly provided under this General Public License.
151 Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, distribute or transfer
152 the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights to use
153 the Program under this License. However, parties who have received
154 copies, or rights to use copies, from you under this General Public
155 License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties
156 remain in full compliance.
158 5. By copying, distributing or modifying the Program (or any work based
159 on the Program) you indicate your acceptance of this license to do so,
160 and all its terms and conditions.
162 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
163 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original
164 licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these
165 terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the
166 recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
168 7. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
169 of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
170 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
171 address new problems or concerns.
173 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
174 specifies a version number of the license which applies to it and "any
175 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
176 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
177 Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
178 the license, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
181 8. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
182 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
183 to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
184 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
185 make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
186 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
187 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
189 NO WARRANTY
191 9. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
192 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
193 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
194 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
195 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
196 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
197 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
198 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
199 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
201 10. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
202 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
203 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
204 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
205 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
206 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
207 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
208 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
209 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
211 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
213 Appendix: How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
215 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
216 possible use to humanity, the best way to achieve this is to make it
217 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these
220 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to
221 attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey
222 the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the
223 "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
225 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
226 Copyright (C) 19yy <name of author>
228 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
229 it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
230 the Free Software Foundation; either version 1, or (at your option)
231 any later version.
233 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
234 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
235 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
236 GNU General Public License for more details.
238 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
239 along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
240 Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston MA 02110-1301 USA
243 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
245 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
246 when it starts in an interactive mode:
248 Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) 19xx name of author
249 Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
250 This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
251 under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
253 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the
254 appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course, the
255 commands you use may be called something other than `show w' and `show
256 c'; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your
259 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
260 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
261 necessary. Here a sample; alter the names:
263 Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the
264 program `Gnomovision' (a program to direct compilers to make passes
265 at assemblers) written by James Hacker.

277 This is free software, licensed under:
279 The Artistic License 1.0
281 The Artistic License
285 The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a Package
286 may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some semblance of
287 artistic control over the development of the package, while giving the users of
288 the package the right to use and distribute the Package in a more-or-less
289 customary fashion, plus the right to make reasonable modifications.
293 - "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the Copyright
294 Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files created through
295 textual modification.
296 - "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been modified,
297 or has been modified in accordance with the wishes of the Copyright
299 - "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or copyrights for
300 the package.
301 - "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing this Package.
302 - "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the basis of media
303 cost, duplication charges, time of people involved, and so on. (You will
304 not be required to justify it to the Copyright Holder, but only to the
305 computing community at large as a market that must bear the fee.)
306 - "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item itself, though
307 there may be fees involved in handling the item. It also means that
308 recipients of the item may redistribute it under the same conditions they
309 received it.
311 1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
312 Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
313 duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.
315 2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications derived
316 from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder. A Package modified in such
317 a way shall still be considered the Standard Version.
319 3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided that
320 you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and when you
321 changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
323 a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them
324 Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or an
325 equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major archive site
326 such as ftp.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include your
327 modifications in the Standard Version of the Package.
329 b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.
331 c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict with
332 standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide a separate
333 manual page for each non-standard executable that clearly documents how it
334 differs from the Standard Version.
336 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
338 4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or executable
339 form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
341 a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,
342 together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where to
343 get the Standard Version.
345 b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of the Package
346 with your modifications.
348 c) accompany any non-standard executables with their corresponding Standard
349 Version executables, giving the non-standard executables non-standard
350 names, and clearly documenting the differences in manual pages (or
351 equivalent), together with instructions on where to get the Standard
354 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
356 5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this
357 Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this Package. You
358 may not charge a fee for this Package itself. However, you may distribute this
359 Package in aggregate with other (possibly commercial) programs as part of a
360 larger (possibly commercial) software distribution provided that you do not
361 advertise this Package as a product of your own.
363 6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as output
364 from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall under the copyright
365 of this Package, but belong to whomever generated them, and may be sold
366 commercially, and may be aggregated with this Package.
368 7. C or perl subroutines supplied by you and linked into this Package shall not
369 be considered part of this Package.
371 8. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote
372 products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
374 9. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
375 WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
376 MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
