   22 		       Version 2, June 1991

   24  Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
   25  51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
   26  Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
   27  of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
   28 
   29 			    Preamble
   30 
   31   The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
   32 freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
   33 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
   34 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
   35 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
   36 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
   37 using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
   38 the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
   39 your programs, too.
   40 
   41   When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
   42 price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
   43 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
   44 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
   45 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
   46 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
   47 
   48   To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
   49 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
   50 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
   51 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
   52 
   53   For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
   54 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
   55 you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
   56 source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
   57 rights.
   58 
   59   We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
   60 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
   61 distribute and/or modify the software.
   62 
   63   Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
   64 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
   65 software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
   66 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
   67 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
   68 authors' reputations.
   69 
   70   Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
   71 patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
   72 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
   73 program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
   74 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
   75 
   76   The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
   77 modification follow.
   78 
   79 		    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
   80    TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
   81 
   82   0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
   83 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
   84 under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
   85 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
   86 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
   87 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
   88 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
   89 language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
   90 the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
   91 
   92 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
   93 covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
   94 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
   95 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
   96 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
   97 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
   98 
   99   1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
  100 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
  101 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
  102 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
  103 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
  104 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
  105 along with the Program.
  106 
  107 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
  108 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
  109 
  110   2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
  111 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
  112 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
  113 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
  114 
  115     a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
  116     stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
  117 
  118     b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
  119     whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
  120     part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
  121     parties under the terms of this License.
  122 
  123     c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
  124     when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
  125     interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
  126     announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
  127     notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
  128     a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
  129     these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
  130     License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
  131     does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
  132     the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
  133 
  134 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
  135 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
  136 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
  137 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
  138 sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
  139 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
  140 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
  141 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
  142 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
  143 
  144 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
  145 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
  146 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
  147 collective works based on the Program.
  148 
  149 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
  150 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
  151 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
  152 the scope of this License.
  153 
  154   3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
  155 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
  156 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
  157 
  158     a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
  159     source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
  160     1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
  161 
  162     b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
  163     years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
  164     cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
  165     machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
  166     distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
  167     customarily used for software interchange; or,
  168 
  169     c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
  170     to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
  171     allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
  172     received the program in object code or executable form with such
  173     an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
  174 
  175 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
  176 making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
  177 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
  178 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
  179 control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
  180 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
  181 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
  182 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
  183 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
  184 itself accompanies the executable.
  185 
  186 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
  187 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
  188 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
  189 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
  190 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
  191 
  192   4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
  193 except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
  194 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
  195 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
  196 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
  197 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
  198 parties remain in full compliance.
  199 
  200   5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
  201 signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
  202 distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
  203 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
  204 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
  205 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
  206 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
  207 the Program or works based on it.
  208 
  209   6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
  210 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
  211 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
  212 these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
  213 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
  214 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
  215 this License.
  216 
  217   7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
  218 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
  219 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
  220 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
  221 excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
  222 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
  223 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
  224 may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
  225 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
  226 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
  227 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
  228 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
  229 
  230 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
  231 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
  232 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
  233 circumstances.
  234 
  235 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
  236 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
  237 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
  238 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
  239 implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
  240 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
  241 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
  242 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
  243 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
  244 impose that choice.
  245 
  246 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
  247 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
  248 
  249   8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
  250 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
  251 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
  252 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
  253 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
  254 countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
  255 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
  256 
  257   9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
  258 of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
  259 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
  260 address new problems or concerns.
  261 
  262 Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
  263 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
  264 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
  265 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
  266 Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
  267 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
  268 Foundation.
  269 
  270   10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
  271 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
  272 to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
  273 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
  274 make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
  275 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
  276 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
  277 
  278 			    NO WARRANTY
  279 
  280   11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
  281 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
  282 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
  283 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
  284 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
  285 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
  286 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
  287 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
  288 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
  289 
  290   12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
  291 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
  292 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
  293 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
  294 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
  295 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
  296 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
  297 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
  298 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
  299 
  300 		     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  301 
  302 	    How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
  303 
  304   If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
  305 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
  306 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
  307 
  308   To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
  309 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
  310 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
  311 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
  312 
  313     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
  314     Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
  315 
  316     This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
  317     it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
  318     the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
  319     (at your option) any later version.
  320 
  321     This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
  322     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
  323     MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
  324     GNU General Public License for more details.
  325 
  326     You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
  327     with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
  328     51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.
  329 
  330 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
  331 
  332 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
  333 when it starts in an interactive mode:
  334 
  335     Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
  336     Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
  337     This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
  338     under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
  339 
  340 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
  341 parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
  342 be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
  343 mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
  344 
  345 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
  346 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
  347 necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
  348 
  349   Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
  350   `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

  354 
  355 This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
  356 proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
  357 consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
  358 library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
  359 Public License instead of this License.
