44   Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
45   51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
46   Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
47   of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
48
49                              Preamble
50
51    The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
52  freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
53  License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
54  software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
55  General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
56  Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
57  using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
58  the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
59  your programs, too.
60
61    When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
62  price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
63  have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
64  this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
65  if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
66  in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
67
68    To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
69  anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
70  These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
71  distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
72
73    For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
74  gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
75  you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
76  source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
77  rights.
78
79    We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
80  (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
81  distribute and/or modify the software.
82
83    Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
84  that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
85  software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
86  want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
87  that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
88  authors' reputations.
89
90    Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
91  patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
92  program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
93  program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
94  patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
95
96    The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
97  modification follow.
98
99                      GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
100     TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
101
102    0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
103  a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
104  under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
105  refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
106  means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
107  that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
108  either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
109  language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
110  the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
111
112  Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
113  covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
114  running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
115  is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
116  Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
117  Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
118
119    1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
120  source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
121  conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
122  copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
123  notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
124  and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
125  along with the Program.
126
127  You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
128  you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
129
130    2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
131  of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
132  distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
133  above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
134
135      a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
136      stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
137
138      b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
139      whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
140      part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
141      parties under the terms of this License.
142
143      c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
144      when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
145      interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
146      announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
147      notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
148      a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
149      these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
150      License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
151      does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
152      the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
153
154  These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
155  identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
156  and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
157  themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
158  sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
159  distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
160  on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
161  this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
162  entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
163
164  Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
165  your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
166  exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
167  collective works based on the Program.
168
169  In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
170  with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
171  a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
172  the scope of this License.
173
174    3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
175  under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
176  Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
177
178      a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
179      source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
180      1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
181
182      b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
183      years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
184      cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
185      machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
186      distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
187      customarily used for software interchange; or,
188
189      c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
190      to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
191      allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
192      received the program in object code or executable form with such
193      an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
194
195  The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
196  making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
197  code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
198  associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
199  control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
200  special exception, the source code distributed need not include
201  anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
202  form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
203  operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
204  itself accompanies the executable.
205
206  If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
207  access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
208  access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
209  distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
210  compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
211
212    4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
213  except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
214  otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
215  void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
216  However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
217  this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
218  parties remain in full compliance.
219
220    5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
221  signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
222  distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
223  prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
224  modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
225  Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
226  all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
227  the Program or works based on it.
228
229    6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
230  Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
231  original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
232  these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
233  restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
234  You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
235  this License.
236
237    7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
238  infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
239  conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
240  otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
241  excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
242  distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
243  License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
244  may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
245  license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
246  all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
247  the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
248  refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
249
250  If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
251  any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
252  apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
253  circumstances.
254
255  It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
256  patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
257  such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
258  integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
259  implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
260  generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
261  through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
262  system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
263  to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
264  impose that choice.
265
266  This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
267  be a consequence of the rest of this License.
268
269    8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
270  certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
271  original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
272  may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
273  those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
274  countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
275  the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
276
277    9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
278  of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
279  be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
280  address new problems or concerns.
281
282  Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
283  specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
284  later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
285  either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
286  Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
287  this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
288  Foundation.
289
290    10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
291  programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
292  to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
293  Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
294  make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
295  of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
296  of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
297
298                              NO WARRANTY
299
300    11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
301  FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
302  OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
303  PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
304  OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
305  MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
306  TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
307  PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
308  REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
309
310    12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
311  WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
312  REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
313  INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
314  OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
315  TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
316  YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
317  PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
318  POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
