30 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
31 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
32
33 Preamble
34
35 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
36freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
37License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
38software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
39General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
40Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
41using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
42the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
43your programs, too.
44
45 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
46price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
47have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
48this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
49if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
50in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
51
52 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
53anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
54These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
55distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
56
57 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
58gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
59you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
60source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
61rights.
62
63 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
64(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
65distribute and/or modify the software.
66
67 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
68that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
69software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
70want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
71that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
72authors' reputations.
73
74 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
75patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
76program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
77program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
78patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
79
80 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
81modification follow.
82\f
83 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
84 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
85
86 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
87a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
88under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
89refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
90means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
91that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
92either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
93language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
94the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
95
96Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
97covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
98running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
99is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
100Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
101Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
102
103 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
104source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
105conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
106copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
107notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
108and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
109along with the Program.
110
111You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
112you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
113
114 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
115of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
116distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
117above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
118
119 a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
120 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
121
122 b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
123 whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
124 part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
125 parties under the terms of this License.
126
127 c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
128 when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
129 interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
130 announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
131 notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
132 a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
133 these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
134 License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
135 does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
136 the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
137\f
138These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
139identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
140and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
141themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
142sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
143distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
144on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
145this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
146entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
147
148Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
149your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
150exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
151collective works based on the Program.
152
153In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
154with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
155a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
156the scope of this License.
157
158 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
159under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
160Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
161
162 a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
163 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
164 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
165
166 b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
167 years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
168 cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
169 machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
170 distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
171 customarily used for software interchange; or,
172
173 c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
174 to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
175 allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
176 received the program in object code or executable form with such
177 an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
178
179The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
180making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
181code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
182associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
183control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
184special exception, the source code distributed need not include
185anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
186form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
187operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
188itself accompanies the executable.
189
190If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
191access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
192access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
193distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
194compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
195\f
196 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
197except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
198otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
199void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
200However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
201this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
202parties remain in full compliance.
203
204 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
205signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
206distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
207prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
208modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
209Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
210all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
211the Program or works based on it.
212
213 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
214Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
215original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
216these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
217restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
218You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
219this License.
220
221 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
222infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
223conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
224otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
225excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
226distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
227License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
228may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
229license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
230all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
231the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
232refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
233
234If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
235any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
236apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
237circumstances.
238
239It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
240patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
241such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
242integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
243implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
244generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
245through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
246system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
247to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
248impose that choice.
249
250This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
251be a consequence of the rest of this License.
252\f
253 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
254certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
255original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
256may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
257those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
258countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
259the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
260
261 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
262of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
263be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
264address new problems or concerns.
265
266Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
267specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
268later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
269either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
270Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
271this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
272Foundation.
273
274 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
275programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
276to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
277Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
278make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
279of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
280of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
281
282 NO WARRANTY
283
284 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
285FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
286OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
287PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
288OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
289MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
290TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
291PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
292REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
293
294 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
295WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
296REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
297INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
298OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
299TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
300YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
301PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
302POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
303
304 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
305\f
306 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
307
308 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
309possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
310free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
311
312 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
313to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
314convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
315the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
316
317 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
318 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
319
320 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
321 it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
322 the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
323 (at your option) any later version.
324
325 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
326 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
327 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
328 GNU General Public License for more details.
329
330 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
331 along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
332 Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
333
334
335Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
336
337If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
338when it starts in an interactive mode:
339
340 Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
341 Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
342 This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
343 under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
344
345The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
346parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may
347be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
348mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
349
350You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
351school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
352necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
353
354 Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
355 `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

358 Ty Coon, President of Vice
359
360This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
361proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
362consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
363library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
364Public License instead of this License.
