' # Preamble ' # The licenses for most software are designed to take away your ' # freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public ' # License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free ' # software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This ' # General Public License applies to most of the Free Software ' # Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to ' # using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by ' # the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.) You can apply it to ' # your programs, too. ' # When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not ' # price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you ' # have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for ' # this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it ' # if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it ' # in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. ' # To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid ' # anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. ' # These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you ' # distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. ' # For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether ' # gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that ' # you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the ' # source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their ' # rights. ' # We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and ' # (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, ' # distribute and/or modify the software. ' # Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain ' # that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free ' # software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we ' # want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so ' # that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original ' # authors' reputations. ' # Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software ' # patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free ' # program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the ' # program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any ' # patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. ' # The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and ' # modification follow. ' # GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE ' # TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION ' # 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains ' # a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed ' # under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, ' # refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" ' # means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: ' # that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, ' # either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another ' # language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in ' # the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". ' # Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not ' # covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of ' # running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program ' # is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the ' # Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). ' # Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. ' # 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's ' # source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you ' # conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate ' # copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the ' # notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; ' # and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License ' # along with the Program. ' # You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and ' # you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee. ' # 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion ' # of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and ' # distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 ' # above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions: ' # a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices ' # stating that you changed the files and the date of any change. ' # b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in ' # whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any ' # part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third ' # parties under the terms of this License. ' # c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively ' # when run, you must cause it, when started running for such ' # interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an ' # announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a ' # notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide ' # a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under ' # these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this ' # License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but ' # does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on ' # the Program is not required to print an announcement.) ' # These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If ' # identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, ' # and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in ' # themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those ' # sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you ' # distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based ' # on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of ' # this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the ' # entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it. ' # Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest ' # your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to ' # exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or ' # collective works based on the Program. ' # In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program ' # with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of ' # a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under ' # the scope of this License. ' # 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, ' # under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of ' # Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following: ' # a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable ' # source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections ' # 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or, ' # b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three ' # years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your ' # cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete ' # machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be ' # distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium ' # customarily used for software interchange; or, ' # c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer ' # to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is ' # allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you ' # received the program in object code or executable form with such ' # an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.) ' # The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for ' # making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source ' # code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any ' # associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to ' # control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a ' # special exception, the source code distributed need not include ' # anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary ' # form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the ' # operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component ' # itself accompanies the executable. ' # If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering ' # access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent ' # access to copy the source code from the same place counts as ' # distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not ' # compelled to copy the source along with the object code. ' # 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program ' # except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt ' # otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is ' # void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. ' # However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under ' # this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such ' # parties remain in full compliance. ' # 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not ' # signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or ' # distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are ' # prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by ' # modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the ' # Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and ' # all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying ' # the Program or works based on it. ' # 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the ' # Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the ' # original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to ' # these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further ' # restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. ' # You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to ' # this License. ' # 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent ' # infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), ' # conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or ' # otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not ' # excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot ' # distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this ' # License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you ' # may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent ' # license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by ' # all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then ' # the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to ' # refrain entirely from distribution of the Program. ' # If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under ' # any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to ' # apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other ' # circumstances. ' # It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any ' # patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any ' # such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the ' # integrity of the free software distribution system, which is ' # implemented by public license practices. Many people have made ' # generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed ' # through that system in reliance on consistent application of that ' # system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing ' # to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot ' # impose that choice. ' # This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to ' # be a consequence of the rest of this License. ' # 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in ' # certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the ' # original copyright holder who places the Program under this License ' # may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding ' # those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among ' # countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates ' # the limitation as if written in the body of this License. ' # 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions ' # of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will ' # be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to ' # address new problems or concerns. ' # Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program ' # specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any ' # later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions ' # either of that version or of any later version published by the Free ' # Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of ' # this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software ' # Foundation. ' # 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free ' # programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author ' # to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free ' # Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes ' # make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals ' # of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and ' # of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally. ' # NO WARRANTY ' # 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY ' # FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN ' # OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES ' # PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED ' # OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF ' # MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS ' # TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE ' # PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, ' # REPAIR OR CORRECTION. ' # 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING ' # WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR ' # REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, ' # INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING ' # OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED ' # TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY ' # YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER ' # PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE ' # POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. ' # END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS ' # How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs ' # If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest ' # possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it ' # free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms. ' # To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest ' # to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively ' # convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least ' # the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found. ' # ' # Copyright (C) ' # This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify ' # it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by ' # the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or ' # (at your option) any later version. ' # This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, ' # but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of ' # MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the ' # GNU General Public License for more details. ' # You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along ' # with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., ' # 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA. ' # Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail. ' # If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this ' # when it starts in an interactive mode: ' # Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author ' # Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'. ' # This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it ' # under certain conditions; type `show c' for details. ' # The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate ' # parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may ' # be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be ' # mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program. ' # You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your ' # school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if ' # necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names: ' # Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program ' # `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker. ' # , 1 April 1989 ' # Ty Coon, President of Vice ' # This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into ' # proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may ' # consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the ' # library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General ' # Public License instead of this License.
