35                       Version 2, June 1991
36
37 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
38                       59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA  02111-1307  USA
39 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
40 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
41
42                            Preamble
43
44  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
45freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
46License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
47software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
48General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
49Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
50using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
51the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
52your programs, too.
53
54  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
55price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
56have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
57this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
58if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
59in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
60
61  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
62anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
63These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
64distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
65
66  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
67gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
68you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
69source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
70rights.
71
72  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
73(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
74distribute and/or modify the software.
75
76  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
77that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
78software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
79want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
80that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
81authors' reputations.
82
83  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
84patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
85program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
86program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
87patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
88
89  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
90modification follow.
91
92                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
93   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
94
95  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
96a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
97under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
98refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
99means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
100that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
101either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
102language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
103the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
104
105Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
106covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
107running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
108is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
109Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
110Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
111
112  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
113source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
114conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
115copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
116notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
117and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
118along with the Program.
119
120You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
121you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
122
123  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
124of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
125distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
126above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
127
128    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
129    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
130
131    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
132    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
133    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
134    parties under the terms of this License.
135
136    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
137    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
138    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
139    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
140    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
141    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
142    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
143    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
144    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
145    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
146
147These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
148identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
149and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
150themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
151sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
152distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
153on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
154this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
155entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
156
157Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
158your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
159exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
160collective works based on the Program.
161
162In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
163with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
164a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
165the scope of this License.
166
167  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
168under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
169Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
170
171    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
172    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
173    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
174
175    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
176    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
177    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
178    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
179    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
180    customarily used for software interchange; or,
181
182    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
183    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
184    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
185    received the program in object code or executable form with such
186    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
187
188The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
189making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
190code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
191associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
192control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
193special exception, the source code distributed need not include
194anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
195form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
196operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
197itself accompanies the executable.
198
199If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
200access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
201access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
202distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
203compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
204
205  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
206except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
207otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
208void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
209However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
210this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
211parties remain in full compliance.
212
213  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
214signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
215distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
216prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
217modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
218Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
219all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
220the Program or works based on it.
221
222  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
223Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
224original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
225these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
226restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
227You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
228this License.
229
230  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
231infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
232conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
233otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
234excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
235distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
236License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
237may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
238license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
239all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
240the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
241refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
242
243If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
244any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
245apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
246circumstances.
247
248It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
249patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
250such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
251integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
252implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
253generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
254through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
255system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
256to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
257impose that choice.
258
259This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
260be a consequence of the rest of this License.
261
262  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
263certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
264original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
265may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
266those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
267countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
268the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
269
270  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
271of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
272be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
273address new problems or concerns.
274
275Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
276specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
277later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
278either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
279Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
280this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
281Foundation.
282
283  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
284programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
285to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
286Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
287make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
288of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
289of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
290
291                            NO WARRANTY
292
293  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
294FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
295OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
296PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
297OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
298MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
299TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
300PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
301REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
302
303  12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
304WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
305REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
306INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
307OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
308TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
309YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
310PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
311POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
312
313                     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
