   16  Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
   17  of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

   19 			    Preamble
   20 
   21   The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
   22 freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
   23 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
   24 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
   25 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
   26 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
   27 using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
   28 the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
   29 your programs, too.
   30 
   31   When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
   32 price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
   33 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
   34 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
   35 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
   36 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
   37 
   38   To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
   39 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
   40 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
   41 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
   42 
   43   For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
   44 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
   45 you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
   46 source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
   47 rights.
   48 
   49   We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
   50 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
   51 distribute and/or modify the software.
   52 
   53   Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
   54 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
   55 software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
   56 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
   57 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
   58 authors' reputations.
   59 
   60   Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
   61 patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
   62 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
   63 program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
   64 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
   65 
   66   The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
   67 modification follow.
   68 
   69 		    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
   70    TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
   71 
   72   0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
   73 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
   74 under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
   75 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
   76 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
   77 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
   78 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
   79 language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
   80 the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
   81 
   82 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
   83 covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
   84 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
   85 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
   86 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
   87 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
   88 
   89   1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
   90 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
   91 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
   92 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
   93 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
   94 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
   95 along with the Program.
   96 
   97 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
   98 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
   99 
  100   2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
  101 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
  102 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
  103 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
  104 
  105     a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
  106     stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
  107 
  108     b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
  109     whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
  110     part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
  111     parties under the terms of this License.
  112 
  113     c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
  114     when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
  115     interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
  116     announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
  117     notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
  118     a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
  119     these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
  120     License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
  121     does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
  122     the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
  123 
  124 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
  125 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
  126 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
  127 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
  128 sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
  129 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
  130 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
  131 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
  132 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
  133 
  134 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
  135 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
  136 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
  137 collective works based on the Program.
  138 
  139 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
  140 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
  141 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
  142 the scope of this License.
  143 
  144   3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
  145 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
  146 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
  147 
  148     a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
  149     source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
  150     1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
  151 
  152     b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
  153     years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
  154     cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
  155     machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
  156     distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
  157     customarily used for software interchange; or,
  158 
  159     c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
  160     to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
  161     allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
  162     received the program in object code or executable form with such
  163     an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
  164 
  165 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
  166 making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
  167 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
  168 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
  169 control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
  170 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
  171 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
  172 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
  173 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
  174 itself accompanies the executable.
  175 
  176 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
  177 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
  178 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
  179 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
  180 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
  181 
  182   4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
  183 except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
  184 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
  185 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
  186 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
  187 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
  188 parties remain in full compliance.
  189 
  190   5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
  191 signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
  192 distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
  193 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
  194 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
  195 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
  196 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
  197 the Program or works based on it.
  198 
  199   6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
  200 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
  201 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
  202 these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
  203 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
  204 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
  205 this License.
  206 
  207   7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
  208 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
  209 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
  210 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
  211 excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
  212 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
  213 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
  214 may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
  215 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
  216 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
  217 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
  218 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
  219 
  220 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
  221 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
  222 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
  223 circumstances.
  224 
  225 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
  226 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
  227 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
  228 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
  229 implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
  230 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
  231 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
  232 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
  233 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
  234 impose that choice.
  235 
  236 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
  237 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
  238 
  239   8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
  240 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
  241 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
  242 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
  243 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
  244 countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
  245 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
  246 
  247   9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
  248 of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
  249 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
  250 address new problems or concerns.
  251 
  252 Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
  253 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
  254 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
  255 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
  256 Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
  257 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
  258 Foundation.
  259 
  260   10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
  261 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
  262 to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
  263 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
  264 make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
  265 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
  266 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
  267 
  268 			    NO WARRANTY
  269 
  270   11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
  271 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
  272 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
  273 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
  274 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
  275 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
  276 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
  277 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
  278 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
  279 
  280   12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
  281 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
  282 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
  283 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
  284 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
  285 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
  286 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
  287 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
  288 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
  289 
  290 		     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  291 
  292 	    How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
  293 
  294   If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
  295 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
  296 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
  297 
  298   To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
  299 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
  300 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
  301 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
  302 
  303     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
  304     Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
  305 
  306     This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
  307     it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
  308     the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
  309     (at your option) any later version.
  310 
  311     This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
  312     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
  313     MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
  314     GNU General Public License for more details.
  315 
  316     You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
  317     along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
  318     Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA  02111-1307  USA
  319 
  320 
  321 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
  322 
  323 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
  324 when it starts in an interactive mode:
  325 
  326     Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year  name of author
  327     Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
  328     This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
  329     under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
  330 
  331 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
  332 parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
  333 be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
  334 mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
  335 
  336 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
  337 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
  338 necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
  339 
  340   Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
  341   `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

  345 
  346 This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
  347 proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
  348 consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
  349 library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
  350 Public License instead of this License.
