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

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