   32 
   33  Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

   35  Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
   36  of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
   37 
   38 			    Preamble
   39 
   40   The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
   41 freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
   42 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
   43 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
   44 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
   45 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
   46 using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
   47 the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
   48 your programs, too.
   49 
   50   When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
   51 price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
   52 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
   53 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
   54 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
   55 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
   56 
   57   To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
   58 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
   59 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
   60 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
   61 
   62   For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
   63 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
   64 you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
   65 source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
   66 rights.
   67 
   68   We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
   69 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
   70 distribute and/or modify the software.
   71 
   72   Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
   73 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
   74 software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
   75 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
   76 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
   77 authors' reputations.
   78 
   79   Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
   80 patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
   81 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
   82 program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
   83 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
   84 
   85   The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
   86 modification follow.
   87 
   88 		    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
   89    TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
   90 
   91   0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
   92 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
   93 under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
   94 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
   95 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
   96 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
   97 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
   98 language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
   99 the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
  100 
  101 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
  102 covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
  103 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
  104 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
  105 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
  106 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
  107 
  108   1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
  109 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
  110 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
  111 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
  112 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
  113 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
  114 along with the Program.
  115 
  116 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
  117 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
  118 
  119   2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
  120 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
  121 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
  122 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
  123 
  124     a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
  125     stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
  126 
  127     b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
  128     whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
  129     part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
  130     parties under the terms of this License.
  131 
  132     c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
  133     when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
  134     interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
  135     announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
  136     notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
  137     a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
  138     these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
  139     License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
  140     does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
  141     the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
  142 
  143 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
  144 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
  145 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
  146 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
  147 sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
  148 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
  149 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
  150 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
  151 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
  152 
  153 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
  154 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
  155 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
  156 collective works based on the Program.
  157 
  158 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
  159 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
  160 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
  161 the scope of this License.
  162 
  163   3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
  164 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
  165 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
  166 
  167     a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
  168     source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
  169     1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
  170 
  171     b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
  172     years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
  173     cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
  174     machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
  175     distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
  176     customarily used for software interchange; or,
  177 
  178     c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
  179     to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
  180     allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
  181     received the program in object code or executable form with such
  182     an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
  183 
  184 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
  185 making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
  186 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
  187 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
  188 control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
  189 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
  190 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
  191 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
  192 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
  193 itself accompanies the executable.
  194 
  195 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
  196 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
  197 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
  198 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
  199 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
  200 
  201   4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
  202 except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
  203 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
  204 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
  205 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
  206 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
  207 parties remain in full compliance.
  208 
  209   5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
  210 signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
  211 distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
  212 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
  213 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
  214 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
  215 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
  216 the Program or works based on it.
  217 
  218   6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
  219 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
  220 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
  221 these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
  222 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
  223 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
  224 this License.
  225 
  226   7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
  227 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
  228 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
  229 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
  230 excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
  231 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
  232 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
  233 may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
  234 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
  235 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
  236 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
  237 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
  238 
  239 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
  240 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
  241 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
  242 circumstances.
  243 
  244 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
  245 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
  246 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
  247 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
  248 implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
  249 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
  250 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
  251 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
  252 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
  253 impose that choice.
  254 
  255 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
  256 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
  257 
  258   8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
  259 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
  260 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
  261 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
  262 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
  263 countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
  264 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
  265 
  266   9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
  267 of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
  268 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
  269 address new problems or concerns.
  270 
  271 Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
  272 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
  273 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
  274 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
  275 Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
  276 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
  277 Foundation.
  278 
  279   10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
  280 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
  281 to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
  282 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
  283 make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
  284 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
  285 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
  286 
  287 			    NO WARRANTY
  288 
  289   11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
  290 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
  291 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
  292 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
  293 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
  294 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
  295 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
  296 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
  297 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
  298 
  299   12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
  300 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
  301 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
  302 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
  303 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
  304 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
  305 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
  306 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
  307 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
  308 
  309 		     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  310 
  311 	    How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
  312 
  313   If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
  314 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
  315 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
  316 
  317   To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
  318 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
  319 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
  320 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
  321 
  322     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
  323     Copyright (C) 19yy  <name of author>
  324 
  325     This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
  326     it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
  327     the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
  328     (at your option) any later version.
  329 
  330     This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
  331     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
  332     MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
  333     GNU General Public License for more details.
  334 
  335     You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
  336     along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
  337     Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA  02111-1307  USA
