41
42   Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
43   51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
44   Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
45   of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
46
47                              Preamble
48
49    The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
50  freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
51  License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
52  software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
53  General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
54  Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
55  using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
56  the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
57  your programs, too.
58
59    When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
60  price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
61  have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
62  this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
63  if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
64  in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
65
66    To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
67  anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
68  These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
69  distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
70
71    For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
72  gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
73  you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
74  source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
75  rights.
76
77    We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
78  (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
79  distribute and/or modify the software.
80
81    Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
82  that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
83  software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
84  want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
85  that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
86  authors' reputations.
87
88    Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
89  patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
90  program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
91  program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
92  patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
93
94    The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
95  modification follow.
96
97                      GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
98     TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
99
100    0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
101  a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
102  under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
103  refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
104  means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
105  that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
106  either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
107  language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
108  the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
109
110  Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
111  covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
112  running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
113  is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
114  Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
115  Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
116
117    1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
118  source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
119  conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
120  copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
121  notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
122  and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
123  along with the Program.
124
125  You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
126  you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
127
128    2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
129  of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
130  distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
131  above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
132
133      a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
134      stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
135
136      b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
137      whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
138      part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
139      parties under the terms of this License.
140
141      c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
142      when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
143      interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
144      announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
145      notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
146      a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
147      these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
148      License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
149      does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
150      the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
151
152  These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
153  identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
154  and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
155  themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
156  sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
157  distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
158  on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
159  this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
160  entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
161
162  Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
163  your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
164  exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
165  collective works based on the Program.
166
167  In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
168  with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
169  a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
170  the scope of this License.
171
172    3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
173  under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
174  Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
175
176      a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
177      source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
178      1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
179
180      b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
181      years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
182      cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
183      machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
184      distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
185      customarily used for software interchange; or,
186
187      c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
188      to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
189      allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
190      received the program in object code or executable form with such
191      an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
192
193  The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
194  making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
195  code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
196  associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
197  control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
198  special exception, the source code distributed need not include
199  anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
200  form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
201  operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
202  itself accompanies the executable.
203
204  If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
205  access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
206  access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
207  distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
208  compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
209
210    4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
211  except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
212  otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
213  void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
214  However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
215  this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
216  parties remain in full compliance.
217
218    5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
219  signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
220  distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
221  prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
222  modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
223  Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
224  all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
225  the Program or works based on it.
226
227    6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
228  Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
229  original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
230  these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
231  restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
232  You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
233  this License.
234
235    7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
236  infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
237  conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
238  otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
239  excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
240  distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
241  License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
242  may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
243  license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
244  all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
245  the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
246  refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
247
248  If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
249  any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
250  apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
251  circumstances.
252
253  It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
254  patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
255  such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
256  integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
257  implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
258  generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
259  through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
260  system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
261  to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
262  impose that choice.
263
264  This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
265  be a consequence of the rest of this License.
266
267    8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
268  certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
269  original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
270  may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
271  those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
272  countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
273  the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
274
275    9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
276  of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
277  be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
278  address new problems or concerns.
279
280  Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
281  specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
282  later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
283  either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
284  Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
285  this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
286  Foundation.
287
288    10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
289  programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
290  to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
291  Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
292  make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
293  of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
294  of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
295
296                              NO WARRANTY
297
298    11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
299  FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
300  OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
301  PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
302  OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
303  MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
304  TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
305  PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
306  REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
307
308    12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
309  WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
310  REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
311  INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
312  OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
313  TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
314  YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
315  PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
316  POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
