 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies

 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

			    Preamble
19
 
20
  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
21
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
22
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
23
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
24
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
25
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
26
using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
27
the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
28
your programs, too.
29
 
30
  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
31
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
32
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
33
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
34
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
35
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
36
 
37
  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
38
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
39
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
40
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
41
 
42
  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
43
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
44
you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
45
source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
46
rights.
47
 
48
  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
49
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
50
distribute and/or modify the software.
51
 
52
  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
53
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
54
software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
55
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
56
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
57
authors' reputations.
58
 
59
  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
60
patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
61
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
62
program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
63
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
64
 
65
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
66
modification follow.

69
   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
70
 
71
  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
72
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
73
under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
74
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
75
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
76
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
77
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
78
language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
79
the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
80
 
81
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
82
covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
83
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
84
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
85
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
86
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
87
 
88
  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
89
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
90
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
91
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
92
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
93
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
94
along with the Program.
95
 
96
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
97
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
98
 
99
  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
100
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
101
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
102
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
103
 
104
    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
105
    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
106
 
107
    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
108
    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
109
    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
110
    parties under the terms of this License.
111
 
112
    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
113
    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
114
    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
115
    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
116
    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
117
    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
118
    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
119
    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
120
    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
121
    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
122
 
123
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
124
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
125
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
126
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
127
sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
128
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
129
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
130
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
131
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
132
 
133
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
134
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
135
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
136
collective works based on the Program.
137
 
138
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
139
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
140
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
141
the scope of this License.
142
 
143
  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
144
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
145
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
146
 
147
    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
148
    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
149
    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
150
 
151
    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
152
    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
153
    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
154
    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
155
    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
156
    customarily used for software interchange; or,
157
 
158
    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
159
    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
160
    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
161
    received the program in object code or executable form with such
162
    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
163
 
164
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
165
making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
166
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
167
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
168
control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
169
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
170
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
171
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
172
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
173
itself accompanies the executable.
174
 
175
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
176
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
177
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
178
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
179
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
180
 
181
  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
182
except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
183
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
184
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
185
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
186
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
187
parties remain in full compliance.
188
 
189
  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
190
signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
191
distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
192
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
193
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
194
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
195
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
196
the Program or works based on it.
197
 
198
  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
199
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
200
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
201
these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
202
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
203
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
204
this License.
205
 
206
  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
207
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
208
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
209
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
210
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
211
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
212
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
213
may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
214
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
215
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
216
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
217
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
218
 
219
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
220
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
221
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
222
circumstances.
223
 
224
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
225
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
226
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
227
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
228
implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
229
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
230
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
231
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
232
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
233
impose that choice.
234
 
235
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
236
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
237
 
238
  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
239
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
240
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
241
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
242
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
243
countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
244
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
245
 
246
  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
247
of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
248
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
249
address new problems or concerns.
250
 
251
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
252
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
253
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
254
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
255
Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
256
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
257
Foundation.
258
 
259
  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
260
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
261
to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
262
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
263
make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
264
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
265
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
266
 
267
			    NO WARRANTY
268
 
269
  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
270
FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
271
OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
272
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
273
OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
274
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
275
TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
276
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
277
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
278
 
279
  12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
280
WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
281
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
282
INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
283
OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
284
TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
285
YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
286
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
287
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
288
 
289
		     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
