15 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111 USA
16 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
17 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
18
19 =head3 Preamble
20
21 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
22 freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
23 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
24 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
25 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
26 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
27 using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
28 the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
29 your programs, too.
30
31 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
32 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
33 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
34 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
35 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
36 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
37
38 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
39 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
40 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
41 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
42
43 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
44 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
45 you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
46 source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
47 rights.
48
49 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
50 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
51 distribute and/or modify the software.
52
53 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
54 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
55 software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
56 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
57 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
58 authors' reputations.
59
60 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
61 patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
62 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
63 program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
64 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
65
66 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
67 modification follow.
68
69 =head3 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
70
71 =head3 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
72
73 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
74 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
75 under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
76 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
77 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
78 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
79 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
80 language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
81 the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
82
83 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
84 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
85 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
86 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
87 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
88 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
89
90 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
91 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
92 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
93 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
94 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
95 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
96 along with the Program.
97
98 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
99 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
100
101 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it,
102 thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such
103 modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that
104 you also meet all of these conditions:
105
106 =over 4
107
108 =item a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
109 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
110
111 =item b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that
112 in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part
113 thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under
114 the terms of this License.
115
116 =item c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
117 when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use
118 in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an
119 appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or
120 else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute
121 the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a
122 copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive
123 but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the
124 Program is not required to print an announcement.)
125
126 =back
127
128 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
129 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
130 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
131 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
132 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
133 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
134 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
135 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
136 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
137
138 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
139 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
140 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
141 collective works based on the Program.
142
143 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
144 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
145 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
146 the scope of this License.
147
148 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
149 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
150 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
151
152 =over 4
153
154 =item a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
155 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
156 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
157
158 =item b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
159 years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of
160 physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable
161 copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms
162 of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software
163 interchange; or,
164
165 =item c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
166 to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed
167 only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program
168 in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with
169 Subsection b above.)
170
171 =back
172
173 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
174 making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
175 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
176 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
177 control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
178 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
179 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
180 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
181 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
182 itself accompanies the executable.
183
184 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
185 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
186 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
187 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
188 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
189
190 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
191 except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
192 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
193 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
194 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
195 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
196 parties remain in full compliance.
197
198 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
199 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
200 distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
201 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
202 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
203 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
204 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
205 the Program or works based on it.
206
207 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
208 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
209 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
210 these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
211 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
212 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
213 this License.
214
215 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
216 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
217 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
218 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
219 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
220 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
221 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
222 may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
223 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
224 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
225 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
226 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
227
228 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
229 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
230 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
231 circumstances.
232
233 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
234 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
235 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
236 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
237 implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
238 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
239 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
240 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
241 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
242 impose that choice.
243
244 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
245 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
246
247 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
248 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
249 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
250 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
251 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
252 countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
253 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
254
255 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
256 of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
257 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
258 address new problems or concerns.
259
260 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
261 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
262 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
263 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
264 Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
265 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
266 Foundation.
267
268 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
269 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
270 to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
271 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
272 make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
273 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
274 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
275
276 =head3 NO WARRANTY
277
278 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
279 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
280 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
281 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
282 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
283 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
284 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
285 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
286 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
287
288 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
289 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
290 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
291 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
292 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
293 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
294 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
295 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
296 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
297
298 =head3 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
299
300 =head3 Appendix: How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
301
302 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
303 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
304 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
305
306 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
307 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
308 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
309 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
310
311 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
312 Copyright (C) 19yy <name of author>
313
314 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
315 it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
316 the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
317 (at your option) any later version.
318
319 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
320 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
321 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
322 GNU General Public License for more details.
323
324 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
325 along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
326 Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111 USA
327
328 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
329
330 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
331 when it starts in an interactive mode:
332
333 Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) 19yy name of author
334 Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
335 This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
336 under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
337
338 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
339 parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may
340 be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
341 mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
342
343 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
344 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
345 necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
346
347 Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
348 `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
349
350 <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
351 Ty Coon, President of Vice
352
353 This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
354 proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
355 consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
356 library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
357 Public License instead of this License.
