1 About…

V.E.R.A. is a free list of acronyms all of which are used in the field of computing.

V.E.R.A. is primarily meant to be used as an online reference, although some efforts have been taken to make its TeX output looking acceptable. However I doubt that somebody would like to print it. The original release from 1997 compiled to 250 pages.

This edition is a special contribution to the GNU project similar to the version 7.9 of V.E.R.A. It contains approximately 12214 acronyms.

The idea to make V.E.R.A. available in Texinfo format came after reading two other Info files both of which are available on the Internet, the Standards and the Languages file, both dealing with antique DEC mainframe environments and both distributed stand-alone; that is, both are not serving as a software manual like most of Texinfo files. I thought it would be very handy to have a list of acronyms available while using Emacs.

It may be considered only a very little contribution. However I make it to express my appreciation for the GNU project and its philosophy. This project does not only make software available free to everyone, it also seems that it sets the only standard ‘everyone’ supports nowadays.

I started V.E.R.A. around easter 1993. The ASCII version was posted to the German=speaking newsgroups z-netz.alt.listen and de.etc.lists every three months until those faded to exist in 2004 and 2007 respectively. Nowadays the list is not posted to Usenet at all. It was never posted to an international newsgroup, because the introduction as well as many internal references are only available in German.

Please note that the original version of V.E.R.A. is not related to the to the Free Software Foundation or the GNU project at all.

The list is far from being complete as dozens of new acronyms evolve every month. Also I am not an every day Unix user, so I am pretty sure that a lot of acronyms from the Unix world are missing. The same is true for the Apple world. Please don’t be angry if your field of computing seems little or not represented at all. Instead please consider contributing the missing acronyms to let other people share what you know.

The shift from the original format of V.E.R.A. to Texinfo format took a whole week. Please forgive any errors which still remain. For hints how to submit corrections or to report bugs, please see History and other useful information.

For a more in-depth discussion of some of the more common acronyms contained in this document you may want to consider visiting the Free Online Dictionary of Computing (FOLDOC), at least if you have access to the World Wide Web. It can be found at http://foldoc.org/ (as of February 2016).


[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

2 List format

Some notes on the systematic approach of the acronym list:

Because often acronyms are being referenced not very unique in style, the acronyms in V.E.R.A. do not contain any special characters; only characters and numbers are used. Please remember this, when you are searching for acronyms.

German umlauts are expressed with AE, ae, OE, oe, UE, ue and ss.

Examples:

ASN.1 = ASN1
OS/2 = OS2
DFUE, Foerderung, Grossforschungseinrichtung, …

What is thought to be the common style can be found at the end of the line(s) in quotation marks.

Examples:

ASN1

Abstract Syntax Notation One (OSI), "ASN.1"

ATT

American Telephone and Telegraph, "AT&T"




[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

2.1 Style of the acronym expansions

The acronym expansions basically follow their acronyms in style. Exceptions are made if expansions are containing acronyms themselves. This often leads to an kind of odd or even wrong orthographical style.

Examples:

AUX

Apple UniX, "A/UX"

XT

eXtended Technology

ACL

Advanced CMOS Logic


[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

2.2 Alternative expansions

If alternative expansions for the same acronym are known these are separated by a slash. However that is not true for acronyms of basically different meanings.

Examples:

AE

Apple Events

AE

Application Entity / Environment / Engineering (APE)


[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

2.3 Additional explanations

Terms in square brackets show additional explanations, of which do not directly belong to the acronym’s expansion, but rather to the acronym’s meaning.

Examples:

ARM

Annotated [c++] Reference Manual

RLL

Run Length Limited [encoding]


[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

2.4 Reference tags for acronyms

The terms in parenthesis which often appear behind the expansions are reference links to certain topics or firms and should help you to get an idea of in which context an acronym is being used.

Examples:

WB

WorkBench (Amiga)

WYSIWYG

What You See Is What You Get (DTP)

Please note that the original version of V.E.R.A. is meant to be formatted in a hypertext environment. Thus some references may seem redundant in an environment which does not support such links.

Examples:

API

Application Program Interface (API)


[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

2.5 Concatenated acronyms

Often-used concatenated acronyms appear without the space or any special characters between them.

Examples:

AMTPE

Apple Media Tool Programming Environment (Apple), "AMT PE"

RISCOS

RISC Operating System (Acorn), "RISC OS"


[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

2.6 Acronyms pointing to versions

When there is a series of related acronyms differing by a number at the end, V.E.R.A. usually has just one entry, which omits the number. For example, there are many versions of MNP (Microcom Networking Protocol), distinguished by numbers; but we do not list MNP4, MNP5 or MNP10, only MNP.

So if you look for an acronym that ends in a number, and you don’t find it, try leaving out the number(s).


[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

2.7 File extensions

Please note that file extensions are not covered by V.E.R.A. at the moment, although some exceptions were made. You will not find things like EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) or GIF (Graphics Interchange Format).

There are many such lists on the Internet if you should be looking for file extensions.


[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

2.8 Gaps

You will probably notice that some acronym expansions or references are tagged with three question marks (‘???’). This indicates that an expansion or reference is still missing or uncertain.


[ << ] [ < ] [ Up ] [ > ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

3 Acronym

An acronym is a word derived from the initial letters or groups of letters of several other words.

Popular examples are:

The word acronym itself derives from the Greek words akros "the highest, the most outer" and onoma "name".

Please note that acronyms are always pronounced as the spelling indicates.

4 History and other useful information

Version 7.9 (February 2016)

Version 7.9 (Texinfo release 1.23) contains about 200 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 12214 acronyms.

Please use

makeinfo --force vera.texi

to compile the info file(s). They will work as expected.

Version 7.8 (September 2014)

Version 7.8 (Texinfo release 1.22) contains about 130 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 12013 acronyms.

Please use

makeinfo --force vera.texi

to compile the info file(s). They will work as expected.

Version 7.7 (January 2014)

Version 7.7 (Texinfo release 1.21a) is a bug fix release. V.E.R.A. would not compile correctly with recent versions of ‘makeinfo’.

This is still partly true to the nested structure of the Top node: The convenient multicolumn letter listing is not a menu section, which newer versions of ‘makeinfo’ bleat about. It is perfectly safe to ignore those errors for now.

Please use

makeinfo --force vera.texi

to compile the info file(s). They will work as expected.

In the process of cleaning up the Texinfo formatting I have also replaced the GNU Free Documentation License (FDL) 1.2 with version 1.3.

Thanks to Dmitry Sivachenko < trtrmitya # gmail . com > for pointing out the problems.

Sorry for the inconvenience. May be V.E.R.A. needs beta testers ;-)

Version 7.7 (January 2014)

Version 7.7 (Texinfo release 1.21) contains about 70 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 11880 acronyms.

Version 6.7 (September 2004)

Version 6.7 (Texinfo release 1.14) contains about 92 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 10252 acronyms.

Until I find out how to put V.E.R.A. back into the GNU system, I will provide it on my home page at http://home.snafu.de/ohei. I have repeatedly written to addresses given in postings, asking for information on how to access the GNU server to no availability. Those guys must be busy, very busy.

Version 6.6 (June 2004)

Version 6.6 (Texinfo release 1.13) contains about 290 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 10160 acronyms.

Until I find out how to put V.E.R.A. back into the GNU system, I will provide it on my home page at http://home.snafu.de/ohei.

Version 6.5 (December 2003)

Version 6.5 (Texinfo release 1.12) contains about 210 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 9870 acronyms.

Version 6.3 (June 2003)

Version 6.3 (Texinfo release 1.11) contains about 150 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 9660 acronyms.

I had problems finding an proper way to upload the last release (Texinfo release 1.10) to the GNU server. All seem to have changed, the old FTP Server is down, my e-mail contact is gone etc.

Until I find out how to put V.E.R.A. back into the system, I will provide it on my home page at http://home.snafu.de/ohei.

Version 6.2 (March 2003)

Version 6.2 (Texinfo release 1.10) contains about 300 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 9510 acronyms.

For the log: There neither had been a GNU nor a Non-GNU edition of V.E.R.A. in September 2002.

Version 6.0 (June 2002)

Version 6.0 (Texinfo release 1.9) contains about 289 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 9203 acronyms.

Fixed some formatting bugs which had accumulated. Thanks for reporting those.

There has been a request to add a ’README’ file to the distribution. I added one.

Also added a Perl search routine for V.E.R.A. from Andres Soolo < soolo [at] math . ut . ee >. You will find it in the ./contrib directory of the distribution. For bug reports please contact Andres.

Version 5.8 (December 2001)

Version 5.8 (Texinfo release 1.8) contains about 426 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 8914 acronyms.

Version 5.5 (March 2001)

Version 5.5 (Texinfo release 1.7) contains about 320 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about 8440 acronyms.

There had been no update of the GNU version for nearly a year, which was mostly due to the lack of significant increase of acronyms.

Please note that this is the first GNU edition of V.E.R.A. to be released under the GNU Free Documentation License.

Please also note that Bob Hilliard < hilliard [at] debian . org > now maintains the Debian vera package as well as the dict-* packages for the Debian GNU/LINUX distribution.

Version 5.2 (June 2000)

Welcome to the first GNU edition of V.E.R.A. in the year 100, eh, I mean 1900+100 :)

Version 5.2 (Texinfo release 1.6) contains about 500 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about than 8119 acronyms.

There had been no update of the GNU version for over a year, which was mostly due to the lack of significant increase of acronyms.

Thanks to all the supporters, some of which did send huge lists with new acronyms.

Version 4.7 (March 1999)

Version 4.7 (Texinfo release 1.5) contains about 100 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about than 7592 acronyms.

Corrected a bug in my script to replace german comments with the according english terms which led to the comment brackets being deleted in every line touched by it.

Version 4.6 (December 1998)

Version 4.6 had not been released as Texinfo version, because there was no significant increase in the count of acronyms.

Version 4.5 (September 1998)

Version 4.5 (Texinfo release 1.4) contains about 90 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about than 7490 acronyms.

I also received a lot of spelling corrections for the acronym expansions as well as for the text of this Texinfo release. Thanks to the submitters.

Version 4.4 (June 1998)

Version 4.4 (Texinfo release 1.3) contains about 250 acronyms more than the last release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about more than 7400 acronyms.

Version 4.2 had accidently been released containing ISO 8859-1 characters. I received no complaints, but I believe not everyone can display these characters as meant to be, so I switched back to 7 bit with this version.

Recently V.E.R.A. ran into copyright/trademark problems. It’s unbelievable how small the name space in the computer field went over the years. To give you an example there are acronyms in this list which have five or more different meanings. However Systems Science Inc. agreed to solve the problem by including the following sentence into the distribution: "This dictionary has nothing to do with Systems Science Inc. or its products." Please don’t wonder if you surprisingly run into this sentence.

Version 4.3 (March 1998)

I found no time to release V.E.R.A. 4.3 as Texinfo version in March 1998 as I was busy with other things. As compiling the Texinfo version is always additional work to do, I thought of to spare the March version and release the next Texinfo version on the next release date (June, 1st).

Version 4.2

Version 4.2 contains about 180 acronyms more than the last release. I also received a mail from the folks who maintain the GNU catalogue. This may mean that V.E.R.A. will be included on the GNU CD-ROM distribution, but I’m not sure.

Version 4.1 (December 1997)

Version 4.1 contains about 500 acronyms more than the initial release. Now V.E.R.A. knows about more than 7000 acronyms.

Besides I wrote a script which automagically translates the German references sometimes to be found behind the acronym expansions in the original version of V.E.R.A. into the appropriate English terms. It also adds ‘Germany’ to German locations. However I still may have missed some German terms or locations. It is kind of awful to proof-read 7000 acronym expansions. If you still spot German terms in the references, please let me know about.

Installation as Info file

If you like to install V.E.R.A. in your Info environment, there are three steps to do so:

  1. Make an Info file from the Texinfo source, type:

    makeinfo vera.texi

    (The file extension may differ in your environment.)

  2. Copy the files generated by the previous step to the directory where the Info files reside on your site.
  3. Go to your Info directory and edit the dir file. Insert a line like the following where appropriate.

    * V.E.R.A.: (vera). Virtual Entity of Relevant Acronyms

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

    The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document free in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by others.

    This License is a kind of “copyleft”, which means that derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense. It complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft license designed for free software.

    We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free software, because free software needs free documentation: a free program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the software does. But this License is not limited to software manuals; it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or whether it is published as a printed book. We recommend this License principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.

  2. APPLICABILITY AND DEFINITIONS

    This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be distributed under the terms of this License. Such a notice grants a world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in duration, to use that work under the conditions stated herein. The “Document”, below, refers to any such manual or work. Any member of the public is a licensee, and is addressed as “you”. You accept the license if you copy, modify or distribute the work in a way requiring permission under copyright law.

    A “Modified Version” of the Document means any work containing the Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with modifications and/or translated into another language.

    A “Secondary Section” is a named appendix or a front-matter section of the Document that deals exclusively with the relationship of the publishers or authors of the Document to the Document’s overall subject (or to related matters) and contains nothing that could fall directly within that overall subject. (Thus, if the Document is in part a textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any mathematics.) The relationship could be a matter of historical connection with the subject or with related matters, or of legal, commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding them.

    The “Invariant Sections” are certain Secondary Sections whose titles are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. If a section does not fit the above definition of Secondary then it is not allowed to be designated as Invariant. The Document may contain zero Invariant Sections. If the Document does not identify any Invariant Sections then there are none.

    The “Cover Texts” are certain short passages of text that are listed, as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. A Front-Cover Text may be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover Text may be at most 25 words.

    A “Transparent” copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy, represented in a format whose specification is available to the general public, that is suitable for revising the document straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for images composed of pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input to text formatters. A copy made in an otherwise Transparent file format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been arranged to thwart or discourage subsequent modification by readers is not Transparent. An image format is not Transparent if used for any substantial amount of text. A copy that is not “Transparent” is called “Opaque”.

    Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input format, SGML or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standard-conforming simple HTML, PostScript or PDF designed for human modification. Examples of transparent image formats include PNG, XCF and JPG. Opaque formats include proprietary formats that can be read and edited only by proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or processing tools are not generally available, and the machine-generated HTML, PostScript or PDF produced by some word processors for output purposes only.

    The “Title Page” means, for a printed book, the title page itself, plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material this License requires to appear in the title page. For works in formats which do not have any title page as such, “Title Page” means the text near the most prominent appearance of the work’s title, preceding the beginning of the body of the text.

    The “publisher” means any person or entity that distributes copies of the Document to the public.

    A section “Entitled XYZ” means a named subunit of the Document whose title either is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in parentheses following text that translates XYZ in another language. (Here XYZ stands for a specific section name mentioned below, such as “Acknowledgements”, “Dedications”, “Endorsements”, or “History”.) To “Preserve the Title” of such a section when you modify the Document means that it remains a section “Entitled XYZ” according to this definition.

    The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which states that this License applies to the Document. These Warranty Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties: any other implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has no effect on the meaning of this License.

  3. VERBATIM COPYING

    You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this License. You may not use technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further copying of the copies you make or distribute. However, you may accept compensation in exchange for copies. If you distribute a large enough number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3.

    You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and you may publicly display copies.

  4. COPYING IN QUANTITY

    If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have printed covers) of the Document, numbering more than 100, and the Document’s license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on the back cover. Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify you as the publisher of these copies. The front cover must present the full title with all words of the title equally prominent and visible. You may add other material on the covers in addition. Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated as verbatim copying in other respects.

    If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to fit legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent pages.

    If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering more than 100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy a computer-network location from which the general network-using public has access to download using public-standard network protocols a complete Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material. If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps, when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated location until at least one year after the last time you distribute an Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or retailers) of that edition to the public.

    It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.

  5. MODIFICATIONS

    You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document under the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release the Modified Version under precisely this License, with the Modified Version filling the role of the Document, thus licensing distribution and modification of the Modified Version to whoever possesses a copy of it. In addition, you must do these things in the Modified Version:

    1. Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct from that of the Document, and from those of previous versions (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section of the Document). You may use the same title as a previous version if the original publisher of that version gives permission.
    2. List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities responsible for authorship of the modifications in the Modified Version, together with at least five of the principal authors of the Document (all of its principal authors, if it has fewer than five), unless they release you from this requirement.
    3. State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the Modified Version, as the publisher.
    4. Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.
    5. Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modifications adjacent to the other copyright notices.
    6. Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice giving the public permission to use the Modified Version under the terms of this License, in the form shown in the Addendum below.
    7. Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections and required Cover Texts given in the Document’s license notice.
    8. Include an unaltered copy of this License.
    9. Preserve the section Entitled “History”, Preserve its Title, and add to it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors, and publisher of the Modified Version as given on the Title Page. If there is no section Entitled “History” in the Document, create one stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modified Version as stated in the previous sentence.
    10. Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for public access to a Transparent copy of the Document, and likewise the network locations given in the Document for previous versions it was based on. These may be placed in the “History” section. You may omit a network location for a work that was published at least four years before the Document itself, or if the original publisher of the version it refers to gives permission.
    11. For any section Entitled “Acknowledgements” or “Dedications”, Preserve the Title of the section, and preserve in the section all the substance and tone of each of the contributor acknowledgements and/or dedications given therein.
    12. Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document, unaltered in their text and in their titles. Section numbers or the equivalent are not considered part of the section titles.
    13. Delete any section Entitled “Endorsements”. Such a section may not be included in the Modified Version.
    14. Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled “Endorsements” or to conflict in title with any Invariant Section.
    15. Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers.

    If the Modified Version includes new front-matter sections or appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no material copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or all of these sections as invariant. To do this, add their titles to the list of Invariant Sections in the Modified Version’s license notice. These titles must be distinct from any other section titles.

    You may add a section Entitled “Endorsements”, provided it contains nothing but endorsements of your Modified Version by various parties—for example, statements of peer review or that the text has been approved by an organization as the authoritative definition of a standard.

    You may add a passage of up to five words as a Front-Cover Text, and a passage of up to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to the end of the list of Cover Texts in the Modified Version. Only one passage of Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text may be added by (or through arrangements made by) any one entity. If the Document already includes a cover text for the same cover, previously added by you or by arrangement made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of, you may not add another; but you may replace the old one, on explicit permission from the previous publisher that added the old one.

    The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License give permission to use their names for publicity for or to assert or imply endorsement of any Modified Version.

  6. COMBINING DOCUMENTS

    You may combine the Document with other documents released under this License, under the terms defined in section 4 above for modified versions, provided that you include in the combination all of the Invariant Sections of all of the original documents, unmodified, and list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in its license notice, and that you preserve all their Warranty Disclaimers.

    The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single copy. If there are multiple Invariant Sections with the same name but different contents, make the title of each such section unique by adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original author or publisher of that section if known, or else a unique number. Make the same adjustment to the section titles in the list of Invariant Sections in the license notice of the combined work.

    In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled “History” in the various original documents, forming one section Entitled “History”; likewise combine any sections Entitled “Acknowledgements”, and any sections Entitled “Dedications”. You must delete all sections Entitled “Endorsements.”

  7. COLLECTIONS OF DOCUMENTS

    You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents released under this License, and replace the individual copies of this License in the various documents with a single copy that is included in the collection, provided that you follow the rules of this License for verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other respects.

    You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute it individually under this License, provided you insert a copy of this License into the extracted document, and follow this License in all other respects regarding verbatim copying of that document.

  8. AGGREGATION WITH INDEPENDENT WORKS

    A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate and independent documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an “aggregate” if the copyright resulting from the compilation is not used to limit the legal rights of the compilation’s users beyond what the individual works permit. When the Document is included in an aggregate, this License does not apply to the other works in the aggregate which are not themselves derivative works of the Document.

    If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these copies of the Document, then if the Document is less than one half of the entire aggregate, the Document’s Cover Texts may be placed on covers that bracket the Document within the aggregate, or the electronic equivalent of covers if the Document is in electronic form. Otherwise they must appear on printed covers that bracket the whole aggregate.

  9. TRANSLATION

    Translation is considered a kind of modification, so you may distribute translations of the Document under the terms of section 4. Replacing Invariant Sections with translations requires special permission from their copyright holders, but you may include translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the original versions of these Invariant Sections. You may include a translation of this License, and all the license notices in the Document, and any Warranty Disclaimers, provided that you also include the original English version of this License and the original versions of those notices and disclaimers. In case of a disagreement between the translation and the original version of this License or a notice or disclaimer, the original version will prevail.

    If a section in the Document is Entitled “Acknowledgements”, “Dedications”, or “History”, the requirement (section 4) to Preserve its Title (section 1) will typically require changing the actual title.

  10. TERMINATION

    You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.

    However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after the cessation.

    Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after your receipt of the notice.

    Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently reinstated, receipt of a copy of some or all of the same material does not give you any rights to use it.

  11. FUTURE REVISIONS OF THIS LICENSE

    The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions of the GNU Free Documentation License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns. See http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/.

    Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number. If the Document specifies that a particular numbered version of this License “or any later version” applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that specified version or of any later version that has been published (not as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation. If the Document does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published (not as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation. If the Document specifies that a proxy can decide which future versions of this License can be used, that proxy’s public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you to choose that version for the Document.

  12. RELICENSING

    “Massive Multiauthor Collaboration Site” (or “MMC Site”) means any World Wide Web server that publishes copyrightable works and also provides prominent facilities for anybody to edit those works. A public wiki that anybody can edit is an example of such a server. A “Massive Multiauthor Collaboration” (or “MMC”) contained in the site means any set of copyrightable works thus published on the MMC site.

    “CC-BY-SA” means the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license published by Creative Commons Corporation, a not-for-profit corporation with a principal place of business in San Francisco, California, as well as future copyleft versions of that license published by that same organization.

    “Incorporate” means to publish or republish a Document, in whole or in part, as part of another Document.

    An MMC is “eligible for relicensing” if it is licensed under this License, and if all works that were first published under this License somewhere other than this MMC, and subsequently incorporated in whole or in part into the MMC, (1) had no cover texts or invariant sections, and (2) were thus incorporated prior to November 1, 2008.

    The operator of an MMC Site may republish an MMC contained in the site under CC-BY-SA on the same site at any time before August 1, 2009, provided the MMC is eligible for relicensing.

ADDENDUM: How to use this License for your documents

To use this License in a document you have written, include a copy of the License in the document and put the following copyright and license notices just after the title page:

  Copyright (C)  year  your name.
  Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document
  under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.3
  or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation;
  with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover
  Texts.  A copy of the license is included in the section entitled ``GNU
  Free Documentation License''.

If you have Invariant Sections, Front-Cover Texts and Back-Cover Texts, replace the “with…Texts.” line with this:

    with the Invariant Sections being list their titles, with
    the Front-Cover Texts being list, and with the Back-Cover Texts
    being list.

If you have Invariant Sections without Cover Texts, or some other combination of the three, merge those two alternatives to suit the situation.

If your document contains nontrivial examples of program code, we recommend releasing these examples in parallel under your choice of free software license, such as the GNU General Public License, to permit their use in free software.
