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

19 Preamble
20
21 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
22freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
23License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
24software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
25General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
26Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
27using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
28the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
29your programs, too.
30
31 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
32price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
33have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
34this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
35if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
36in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
37
38 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
39anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
40These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
41distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
42
43 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
44gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
45you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
46source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
47rights.
48
49 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
50(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
51distribute and/or modify the software.
52
53 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
54that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
55software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
56want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
57that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
58authors' reputations.
59
60 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
61patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
62program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
63program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
64patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
65
66 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
67modification follow.

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

345
346This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
347proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
348consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
349library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
350Public License instead of this License.
