 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
19
 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

			    Preamble
22
 
23
  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
24
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
25
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
26
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
27
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
28
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
29
using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
30
the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
31
your programs, too.
32
 
33
  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
34
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
35
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
36
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
37
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
38
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
39
 
40
  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
41
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
42
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
43
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
44
 
45
  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
46
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
47
you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
48
source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
49
rights.
50
 
51
  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
52
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
53
distribute and/or modify the software.
54
 
55
  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
56
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
57
software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
58
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
59
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
60
authors' reputations.
61
 
62
  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
63
patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
64
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
65
program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
66
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
67
 
68
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
69
modification follow.
70
 
71
		    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
72
   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
73
 
74
  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
75
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
76
under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
77
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
78
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
79
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
80
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
81
language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
82
the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
83
 
84
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
85
covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
86
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
87
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
88
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
89
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
90
 
91
  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
92
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
93
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
94
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
95
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
96
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
97
along with the Program.
98
 
99
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
100
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
101
 
102
  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
103
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
104
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
105
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
106
 
107
    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
108
    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
109
 
110
    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
111
    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
112
    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
113
    parties under the terms of this License.
114
 
115
    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
116
    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
117
    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
118
    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
119
    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
120
    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
121
    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
122
    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
123
    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
124
    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
125
 
126
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
127
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
128
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
129
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
130
sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
131
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
132
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
133
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
134
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
135
 
136
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
137
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
138
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
139
collective works based on the Program.
140
 
141
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
142
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
143
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
144
the scope of this License.
145
 
146
  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
147
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
148
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
149
 
150
    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
151
    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
152
    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
153
 
154
    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
155
    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
156
    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
157
    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
158
    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
159
    customarily used for software interchange; or,
160
 
161
    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
162
    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
163
    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
164
    received the program in object code or executable form with such
165
    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
166
 
167
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
168
making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
169
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
170
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
171
control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
172
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
173
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
174
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
175
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
176
itself accompanies the executable.
177
 
178
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
179
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
180
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
181
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
182
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
183
 
184
  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
185
except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
186
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
187
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
188
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
189
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
190
parties remain in full compliance.
191
 
192
  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
193
signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
194
distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
195
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
196
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
197
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
198
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
199
the Program or works based on it.
200
 
201
  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
202
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
203
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
204
these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
205
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
206
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
207
this License.
208
 
209
  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
210
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
211
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
212
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
213
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
214
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
215
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
216
may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
217
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
218
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
219
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
220
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
221
 
222
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
223
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
224
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
225
circumstances.
226
 
227
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
228
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
229
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
230
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
231
implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
232
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
233
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
234
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
235
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
236
impose that choice.
237
 
238
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
239
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
240
 
241
  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
242
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
243
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
244
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
245
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
246
countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
247
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
248
 
249
  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
250
of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
251
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
252
address new problems or concerns.
253
 
254
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
255
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
256
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
257
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
258
Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
259
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
260
Foundation.
261
 
262
  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
263
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
264
to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
265
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
266
make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
267
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
268
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
269
 
270
			    NO WARRANTY
271
 
272
  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
273
FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
274
OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
275
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
276
OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
277
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
278
TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
279
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
280
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
281
 
282
  12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
283
WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
284
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
285
INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
286
OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
287
TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
288
YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
289
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
290
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
291
 
292
		     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
293
 
294
	    How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
295
 
296
  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
297
possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
298
free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
299
 
300
  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
301
to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
302
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
303
the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
304
 
305
    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
306
    Copyright (C) 19yy  <name of author>
307
 
308
    This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
309
    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
310
    the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
311
    (at your option) any later version.
312
 
313
    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
314
    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
315
    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
316
    GNU General Public License for more details.
317
 
318
    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
319
    along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
320
    Foundation, Inc., 675 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA.
321
 
322
Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
323
 
324
If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
325
when it starts in an interactive mode:
326
 
327
    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) 19yy name of author
328
    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
329
    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
330
    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
331
 
332
The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
333
parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
334
be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
335
mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
336
 
337
You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
338
school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
339
necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
340
 
341
  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
342
  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

347
This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
348
proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
349
consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
350
library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
351
Public License instead of this License.
