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