   27  Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
   28  of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
   29 
   30                             Preamble
   31 
   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.
   39 
   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.
   46 
   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.
   51 
   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.
   56 
   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.
   60 
   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.
   67 
   68   The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
   69 modification follow.
   70 
   71                     GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
   72    TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
   73 
   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".
   81 
   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.
   90 
   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:
   94 
   95     a) cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that
   96     you changed the files and the date of any change; and
   97 
   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).
  104 
  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.
  113 
  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.
  117 
  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.
  121 
  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:
  125 
  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,
  129 
  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,
  135 
  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.)
  140 
  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.
  148 
  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.
  157 
  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.
  161 
  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.
  167 
  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.
  172 
  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
  179 Foundation.
  180 
  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.
  188 
  189                             NO WARRANTY
  190 
  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.
  200 
  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.
  210 
  211                      END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  212 
  213         Appendix: How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
  214 
  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
  218 terms.
  219 
  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.
  224 
  225     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
  226     Copyright (C) 19yy  <name of author>
  227 
  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.
  232 
  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.
  237 
  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
  241 
  242 
  243 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
  244 
  245 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
  246 when it starts in an interactive mode:
  247 
  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.
  252 
  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
  257 program.
  258 
  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:
  262 
  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.

  275 This software is Copyright (c) 1995 by Gisle Aas <gaas@cpan.org>.
  276 
  277 This is free software, licensed under:

  279   The Artistic License 1.0
  280 
  281 The Artistic License
  282 
  283 Preamble
  284 
  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.
  290 
  291 Definitions:
  292 
  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
  298     Holder. 
  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. 
  310 
  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.
  314 
  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.
  318 
  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:
  322 
  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.
  328 
  329   b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.
  330 
  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.
  335 
  336   d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
  337 
  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:
  340 
  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.
  344 
  345   b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of the Package
  346      with your modifications.
  347 
  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
  352      Version.
  353 
  354   d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
  355 
  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.
  362 
  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.
  367 
  368 7. C or perl subroutines supplied by you and linked into this Package shall not
  369 be considered part of this Package.
  370 
  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.
  373 
  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.
  377 
  378 The End
