23                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
24                       Version 2, June 1991
25
26 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
27 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
28 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
29 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
30
31                            Preamble
32
33  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
34freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
35License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
36software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
37General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
38Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
39using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
40the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
41your programs, too.
42
43  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
44price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
45have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
46this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
47if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
48in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
49
50  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
51anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
52These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
53distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
54
55  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
56gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
57you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
58source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
59rights.
60
61  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
62(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
63distribute and/or modify the software.
64
65  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
66that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
67software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
68want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
69that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
70authors' reputations.
71
72  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
73patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
74program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
75program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
76patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
77
78  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
79modification follow.
80
81                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
82   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
83
84  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
85a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
86under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
87refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
88means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
89that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
90either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
91language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
92the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
93
94Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
95covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
96running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
97is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
98Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
99Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
100
101  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
102source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
103conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
104copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
105notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
106and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
107along with the Program.
108
109You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
110you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
111
112  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
113of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
114distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
115above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
116
117    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
118    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
119
120    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
121    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
122    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
123    parties under the terms of this License.
124
125    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
126    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
127    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
128    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
129    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
130    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
131    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
132    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
133    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
134    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
135
136These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
137identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
138and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
139themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
140sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
141distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
142on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
143this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
144entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
145
146Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
147your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
148exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
149collective works based on the Program.
150
151In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
152with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
153a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
154the scope of this License.
155
156  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
157under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
158Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
159
160    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
161    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
162    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
163
164    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
165    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
166    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
167    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
168    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
169    customarily used for software interchange; or,
170
171    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
172    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
173    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
174    received the program in object code or executable form with such
175    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
176
177The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
178making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
179code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
180associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
181control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
182special exception, the source code distributed need not include
183anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
184form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
185operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
186itself accompanies the executable.
187
188If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
189access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
190access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
191distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
192compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
193
194  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
195except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
196otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
197void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
198However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
199this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
200parties remain in full compliance.
201
202  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
203signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
204distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
205prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
206modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
207Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
208all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
209the Program or works based on it.
210
211  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
212Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
213original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
214these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
215restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
216You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
217this License.
218
219  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
220infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
221conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
222otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
223excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
224distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
225License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
226may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
227license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
228all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
229the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
230refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
231
232If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
233any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
234apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
235circumstances.
236
237It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
238patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
239such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
240integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
241implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
242generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
243through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
244system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
245to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
246impose that choice.
247
248This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
249be a consequence of the rest of this License.
250
251  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
252certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
253original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
254may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
255those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
256countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
257the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
258
259  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
260of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
261be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
262address new problems or concerns.
263
264Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
265specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
266later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
267either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
268Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
269this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
270Foundation.
271
272  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
273programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
274to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
275Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
276make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
277of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
278of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
279
280                            NO WARRANTY
281
282  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
283FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
284OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
285PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
286OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
287MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
288TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
289PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
290REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
291
292  12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
293WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
294REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
295INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
296OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
297TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
298YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
299PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
300POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
301
302                     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
303
304            How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
305
306  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
307possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
308free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
309
310  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
311to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
312convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
313the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
314
315    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
316    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
317
318    This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
319    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
320    the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
321    (at your option) any later version.
322
323    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
324    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
325    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
326    GNU General Public License for more details.
327
328    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
329    with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
330    51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.
331
332Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
333
334If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
335when it starts in an interactive mode:
336
337    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
338    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
339    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
340    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
341
342The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
343parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
344be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
345mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
346
347You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
348school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
349necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
350
351  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
352  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
353
354  <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
355  Ty Coon, President of Vice
356
357This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
358proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
359consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
360library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
361Public License instead of this License.
