   10  Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
   11  of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
   12 
   13 			    Preamble
   14 
   15   The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
   16 freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
   17 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
   18 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
   19 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
   20 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
   21 using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
   22 the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
   23 your programs, too.
   24 
   25   When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
   26 price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
   27 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
   28 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
   29 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
   30 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
   31 
   32   To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
   33 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
   34 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
   35 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
   36 
   37   For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
   38 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
   39 you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
   40 source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
   41 rights.
   42 
   43   We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
   44 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
   45 distribute and/or modify the software.
   46 
   47   Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
   48 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
   49 software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
   50 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
   51 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
   52 authors' reputations.
   53 
   54   Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
   55 patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
   56 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
   57 program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
   58 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
   59 
   60   The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
   61 modification follow.
   62 
   63 		    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
   64    TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
   65 
   66   0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
   67 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
   68 under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
   69 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
   70 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
   71 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
   72 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
   73 language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
   74 the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
   75 
   76 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
   77 covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
   78 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
   79 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
   80 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
   81 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
   82 
   83   1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
   84 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
   85 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
   86 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
   87 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
   88 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
   89 along with the Program.
   90 
   91 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
   92 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
   93 
   94   2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
   95 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
   96 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
   97 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
   98 
   99     a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
  100     stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
  101 
  102     b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
  103     whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
  104     part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
  105     parties under the terms of this License.
  106 
  107     c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
  108     when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
  109     interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
  110     announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
  111     notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
  112     a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
  113     these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
  114     License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
  115     does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
  116     the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
  117 
  118 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
  119 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
  120 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
  121 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
  122 sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
  123 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
  124 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
  125 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
  126 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
  127 
  128 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
  129 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
  130 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
  131 collective works based on the Program.
  132 
  133 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
  134 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
  135 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
  136 the scope of this License.
  137 
  138   3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
  139 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
  140 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
  141 
  142     a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
  143     source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
  144     1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
  145 
  146     b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
  147     years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
  148     cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
  149     machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
  150     distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
  151     customarily used for software interchange; or,
  152 
  153     c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
  154     to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
  155     allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
  156     received the program in object code or executable form with such
  157     an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
  158 
  159 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
  160 making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
  161 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
  162 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
  163 control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
  164 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
  165 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
  166 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
  167 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
  168 itself accompanies the executable.
  169 
  170 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
  171 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
  172 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
  173 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
  174 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
  175 
  176   4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
  177 except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
  178 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
  179 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
  180 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
  181 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
  182 parties remain in full compliance.
  183 
  184   5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
  185 signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
  186 distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
  187 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
  188 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
  189 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
  190 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
  191 the Program or works based on it.
  192 
  193   6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
  194 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
  195 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
  196 these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
  197 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
  198 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
  199 this License.
  200 
  201   7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
  202 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
  203 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
  204 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
  205 excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
  206 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
  207 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
  208 may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
  209 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
  210 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
  211 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
  212 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
  213 
  214 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
  215 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
  216 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
  217 circumstances.
  218 
  219 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
  220 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
  221 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
  222 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
  223 implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
  224 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
  225 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
  226 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
  227 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
  228 impose that choice.
  229 
  230 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
  231 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
  232 
  233   8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
  234 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
  235 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
  236 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
  237 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
  238 countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
  239 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
  240 
  241   9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
  242 of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
  243 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
  244 address new problems or concerns.
  245 
  246 Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
  247 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
  248 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
  249 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
  250 Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
  251 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
  252 Foundation.
  253 
  254   10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
  255 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
  256 to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
  257 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
  258 make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
  259 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
  260 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
  261 
  262 			    NO WARRANTY
  263 
  264   11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
  265 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
  266 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
  267 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
  268 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
  269 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
  270 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
  271 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
  272 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
  273 
  274   12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
  275 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
  276 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
  277 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
  278 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
  279 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
  280 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
  281 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
  282 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
  283 
  284 		     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  285 
  286 	Appendix: How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
  287 
  288   If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
  289 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
  290 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
  291 
  292   To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
  293 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
  294 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
  295 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
  296 
  297     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
  298     Copyright (C) 19yy  <name of author>
  299 
  300     This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
  301     it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
  302     the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
  303     (at your option) any later version.
  304 
  305     This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
  306     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
  307     MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
  308     GNU General Public License for more details.
  309 
  310     You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
  311     along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
  312     Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place - Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA
  313 
  314 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
  315 
  316 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
  317 when it starts in an interactive mode:
  318 
  319     Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) 19yy name of author
  320     Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
  321     This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
  322     under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
  323 
  324 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
  325 parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
  326 be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
  327 mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
  328 
  329 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
  330 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
  331 necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
  332 
  333   Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
  334   `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

  338 
  339 This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
  340 proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
  341 consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
  342 library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
  343 Public License instead of this License.
