                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE

                       Version 2, June 1991

 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

                          675 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA

 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
9
 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
10
 
11
                            Preamble
12
 
13
  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
14
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
15
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
16
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
17
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
18
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
19
using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
20
the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
21
your programs, too.
22
 
23
  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
24
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
25
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
26
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
27
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
28
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
29
 
30
  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
31
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
32
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
33
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
34
 
35
  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
36
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
37
you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
38
source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
39
rights.
40
 
41
  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
42
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
43
distribute and/or modify the software.
44
 
45
  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
46
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
47
software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
48
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
49
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
50
authors' reputations.
51
 
52
  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
53
patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
54
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
55
program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
56
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
57
 
58
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
59
modification follow.
60
 
61
                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
62
   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
63
 
64
  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
65
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
66
under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
67
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
68
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
69
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
70
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
71
language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
72
the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
73
 
74
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
75
covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
76
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
77
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
78
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
79
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
80
 
81
  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
82
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
83
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
84
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
85
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
86
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
87
along with the Program.
88
 
89
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
90
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
91
 
92
  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
93
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
94
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
95
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
96
 
97
    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
98
    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
99
 
100
    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
101
    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
102
    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
103
    parties under the terms of this License.
104
 
105
    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
106
    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
107
    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
108
    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
109
    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
110
    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
111
    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
112
    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
113
    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
114
    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
115
 
116
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
117
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
118
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
119
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
120
sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
121
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
122
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
123
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
124
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
125
 
126
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
127
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
128
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
129
collective works based on the Program.
130
 
131
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
132
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
133
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
134
the scope of this License.
135
 
136
  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
137
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
138
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
139
 
140
    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
141
    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
142
    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
143
 
144
    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
145
    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
146
    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
147
    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
148
    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
149
    customarily used for software interchange; or,
150
 
151
    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
152
    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
153
    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
154
    received the program in object code or executable form with such
155
    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
156
 
157
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
158
making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
159
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
160
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
161
control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
162
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
163
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
164
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
165
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
166
itself accompanies the executable.
167
 
168
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
169
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
170
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
171
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
172
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
173
 
174
  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
175
except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
176
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
177
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
178
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
179
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
180
parties remain in full compliance.
181
 
182
  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
183
signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
184
distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
185
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
186
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
187
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
188
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
189
the Program or works based on it.
190
 
191
  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
192
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
193
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
194
these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
195
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
196
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
197
this License.
198
 
199
  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
200
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
201
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
202
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
203
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
204
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
205
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
206
may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
207
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
208
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
209
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
210
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
211
 
212
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
213
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
214
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
215
circumstances.
216
 
217
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
218
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
219
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
220
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
221
implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
222
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
223
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
224
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
225
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
226
impose that choice.
227
 
228
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
229
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
230
 
231
  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
232
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
233
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
234
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
235
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
236
countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
237
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
238
 
239
  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
240
of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
241
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
242
address new problems or concerns.
243
 
244
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
245
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
246
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
247
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
248
Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
249
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
250
Foundation.
251
 
252
  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
253
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
254
to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
255
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
256
make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
257
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
258
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
259
 
260
                            NO WARRANTY
261
 
262
  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
263
FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
264
OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
265
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
266
OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
267
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
268
TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
269
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
270
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
271
 
272
  12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
273
WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
274
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
275
INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
276
OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
277
TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
278
YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
279
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
280
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
281
 
282
                     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
