 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
592c01
 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
592c01
592c01
                            Preamble
592c01
592c01
  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
592c01
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
592c01
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
592c01
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
592c01
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
592c01
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
592c01
using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
592c01
the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
592c01
your programs, too.
592c01
592c01
  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
592c01
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
592c01
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
592c01
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
592c01
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
592c01
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
592c01
592c01
  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
592c01
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
592c01
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
592c01
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
592c01
592c01
  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
592c01
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
592c01
you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
592c01
source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
592c01
rights.
592c01
592c01
  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
592c01
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
592c01
distribute and/or modify the software.
592c01
592c01
  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
592c01
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
592c01
software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
592c01
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
592c01
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
592c01
authors' reputations.
592c01
592c01
  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
592c01
patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
592c01
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
592c01
program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
592c01
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
592c01
592c01
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
592c01
modification follow.
592c01
592c01
                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
592c01
   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
592c01
592c01
  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
592c01
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
592c01
under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
592c01
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
592c01
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
592c01
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
592c01
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
592c01
language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
592c01
the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
592c01
592c01
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
592c01
covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
592c01
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
592c01
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
592c01
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
592c01
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
592c01
592c01
  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
592c01
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
592c01
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
592c01
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
592c01
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
592c01
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
592c01
along with the Program.
592c01
592c01
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
592c01
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
592c01
592c01
  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
592c01
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
592c01
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
592c01
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
592c01
592c01
    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
592c01
    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
592c01
592c01
    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
592c01
    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
592c01
    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
592c01
    parties under the terms of this License.
592c01
592c01
    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
592c01
    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
592c01
    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
592c01
    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
592c01
    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
592c01
    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
592c01
    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
592c01
    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
592c01
    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
592c01
    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
592c01
592c01
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
592c01
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
592c01
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
592c01
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
592c01
sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
592c01
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
592c01
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
592c01
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
592c01
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
592c01
592c01
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
592c01
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
592c01
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
592c01
collective works based on the Program.
592c01
592c01
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
592c01
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
592c01
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
592c01
the scope of this License.
592c01
592c01
  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
592c01
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
592c01
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
592c01
592c01
    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
592c01
    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
592c01
    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
592c01
592c01
    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
592c01
    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
592c01
    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
592c01
    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
592c01
    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
592c01
    customarily used for software interchange; or,
592c01
592c01
    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
592c01
    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
592c01
    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
592c01
    received the program in object code or executable form with such
592c01
    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
592c01
592c01
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
592c01
making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
592c01
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
592c01
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
592c01
control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
592c01
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
592c01
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
592c01
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
592c01
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
592c01
itself accompanies the executable.
592c01
592c01
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
592c01
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
592c01
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
592c01
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
592c01
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
592c01
592c01
  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
592c01
except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
592c01
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
592c01
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
592c01
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
592c01
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
592c01
parties remain in full compliance.
592c01
592c01
  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
592c01
signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
592c01
distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
592c01
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
592c01
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
592c01
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
592c01
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
592c01
the Program or works based on it.
592c01
592c01
  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
592c01
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
592c01
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
592c01
these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
592c01
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
592c01
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
592c01
this License.
592c01
592c01
  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
592c01
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
592c01
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
592c01
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
592c01
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
592c01
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
592c01
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
592c01
may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
592c01
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
592c01
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
592c01
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
592c01
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
592c01
592c01
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
592c01
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
592c01
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
592c01
circumstances.
592c01
592c01
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
592c01
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
592c01
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
592c01
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
592c01
implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
592c01
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
592c01
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
592c01
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
592c01
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
592c01
impose that choice.
592c01
592c01
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
592c01
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
592c01
592c01
  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
592c01
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
592c01
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
592c01
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
592c01
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
592c01
countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
592c01
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
592c01
592c01
  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
592c01
of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
592c01
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
592c01
address new problems or concerns.
592c01
592c01
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
592c01
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
592c01
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
592c01
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
592c01
Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
592c01
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
592c01
Foundation.
592c01
592c01
  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
592c01
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
592c01
to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
592c01
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
592c01
make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
592c01
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
592c01
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
592c01
592c01
                            NO WARRANTY
592c01
592c01
  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
592c01
FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
592c01
OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
592c01
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
592c01
OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
592c01
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
592c01
TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
592c01
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
592c01
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
592c01
592c01
  12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
592c01
WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
592c01
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
592c01
INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
592c01
OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
592c01
TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
592c01
YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
592c01
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
592c01
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
592c01
592c01
                     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
592c01
592c01
            How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
592c01
592c01
  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
592c01
possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
592c01
free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
592c01
592c01
  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
592c01
to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
592c01
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
592c01
the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

    This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
592c01
    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
592c01
    the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
592c01
    (at your option) any later version.
592c01
592c01
    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
592c01
    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
592c01
    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
592c01
    GNU General Public License for more details.
592c01
592c01
    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
592c01
    with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
592c01
    51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.
592c01
592c01
Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
592c01
592c01
If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
592c01
when it starts in an interactive mode:
592c01
592c01
    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
592c01
    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
592c01
    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
592c01
    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
592c01
592c01
The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
592c01
parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
592c01
be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
592c01
mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
592c01
592c01
You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
592c01
school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
592c01
necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
592c01
592c01
  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
592c01
  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

592c01
This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
592c01
proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
592c01
consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
592c01
library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
592c01
Public License instead of this License.
