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

18 Preamble
19
20 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
21freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
22License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
23software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
24General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
25Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
26using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
27the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
28your programs, too.
29
30 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
31price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
32have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
33this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
34if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
35in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
36
37 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
38anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
39These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
40distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
41
42 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
43gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
44you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
45source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
46rights.
47
48 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
49(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
50distribute and/or modify the software.
51
52 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
53that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
54software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
55want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
56that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
57authors' reputations.
58
59 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
60patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
61program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
62program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
63patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
64
65 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
66modification 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
124
125These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
126identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
127and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
128themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
129sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
130distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
131on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
132this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
133entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
134
135Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
136your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
137exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
138collective works based on the Program.
139
140In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
141with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
142a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
143the scope of this License.
144
145 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
146under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
147Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
148
149 a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
150 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
151 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
152
153 b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
154 years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
155 cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
156 machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
157 distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
158 customarily used for software interchange; or,
159
160 c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
161 to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
162 allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
163 received the program in object code or executable form with such
164 an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
165
166The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
167making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
168code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
169associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
170control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
171special exception, the source code distributed need not include
172anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
173form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
174operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
175itself accompanies the executable.
176
177If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
178access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
179access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
180distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
181compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
182
183
184 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
185except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
186otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
187void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
188However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
189this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
190parties remain in full compliance.
191
192 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
193signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
194distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
195prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
196modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
197Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
198all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
199the Program or works based on it.
200
201 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
202Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
203original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
204these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
205restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
206You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
207this License.
208
209 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
210infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
211conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
212otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
213excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
214distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
215License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
216may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
217license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
218all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
219the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
220refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
221
222If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
223any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
224apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
225circumstances.
226
227It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
228patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
229such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
230integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
231implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
232generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
233through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
234system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
235to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
236impose that choice.
237
238This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
239be a consequence of the rest of this License.
240
241
242 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
243certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
244original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
245may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
246those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
247countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
248the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
249
250 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
251of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
252be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
253address new problems or concerns.
254
255Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
256specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
257later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
258either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
259Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
260this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
261Foundation.
262
263 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
264programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
265to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
266Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
267make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
268of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
269of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
270
271 NO WARRANTY
272
273 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
274FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
275OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
276PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
277OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
278MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
279TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
280PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
281REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
282
283 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
284WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
285REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
286INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
287OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
288TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
289YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
290PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
291POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
292
293 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
294
295
296 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
297
298 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
299possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
300free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
301
302 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
303to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
304convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
305the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
306
307 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
308 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
309
310 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
311 it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
312 the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
313 (at your option) any later version.
314
315 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
316 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
317 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
318 GNU General Public License for more details.
319
320 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
321 along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
322 Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
323
324
325Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
326
327If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
328when it starts in an interactive mode:
329
330 Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
331 Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
332 This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
333 under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
334
335The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
336parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may
337be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
338mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
339
340You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
341school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
342necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
343
344 Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
345 `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
346
347 <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
348 Ty Coon, President of Vice
349
350This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
351proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
352consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
353library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
354Public License instead of this License.
