     Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
8
     of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

10
     		    Preamble
11
 
12
     The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
13
     freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
14
     License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
15
     software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
16
     General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
17
     Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
18
     using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
19
     the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
20
     your programs, too.
21
 
22
     When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
23
     price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
24
     have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
25
     this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
26
     if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
27
     in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
28
 
29
     To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
30
     anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
31
     These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
32
     distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
33
 
34
     For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
35
     gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
36
     you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
37
     source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
38
     rights.
39
 
40
     We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
41
     (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
42
     distribute and/or modify the software.
43
 
44
     Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
45
     that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
46
     software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
47
     want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
48
     that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
49
     authors' reputations.
50
 
51
     Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
52
     patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
53
     program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
54
     program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
55
     patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
56
 
57
     The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
58
     modification follow.
59
 
60
     	    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
61
     TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
62
 
63
     0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
64
     a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
65
     under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
66
     refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
67
     means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
68
     that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
69
     either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
70
     language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
71
     the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
72
 
73
     Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
74
     covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
75
     running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
76
     is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
77
     Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
78
     Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
79
 
80
     1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
81
     source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
82
     conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
83
     copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
84
     notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
85
     and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
86
     along with the Program.
87
 
88
     You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
89
     you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
90
 
91
     2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
92
     of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
93
     distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
94
     above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
95
 
96
     a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
97
     stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
98
 
99
     b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
100
     whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
101
     part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
102
     parties under the terms of this License.
103
 
104
     c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
105
     when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
106
     interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
107
     announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
108
     notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
109
     a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
110
     these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
111
     License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
112
     does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
113
     the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
114
 
115
     These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
116
     identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
117
     and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
118
     themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
119
     sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
120
     distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
121
     on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
122
     this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
123
     entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
124
 
125
     Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
126
     your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
127
     exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
128
     collective works based on the Program.
129
 
130
     In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
131
     with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
132
     a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
133
     the scope of this License.
134
 
135
     3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
136
     under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
137
     Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
138
 
139
     a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
140
     source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
141
     1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
142
 
143
     b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
144
     years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
145
     cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
146
     machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
147
     distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
148
     customarily used for software interchange; or,
149
 
150
     c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
151
     to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
152
     allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
153
     received the program in object code or executable form with such
154
     an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
155
 
156
     The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
157
     making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
158
     code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
159
     associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
160
     control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
161
     special exception, the source code distributed need not include
162
     anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
163
     form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
164
     operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
165
     itself accompanies the executable.
166
 
167
     If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
168
     access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
169
     access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
170
     distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
171
     compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
172
 
173
     4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
174
     except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
175
     otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
176
     void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
177
     However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
178
     this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
179
     parties remain in full compliance.
180
 
181
     5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
182
     signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
183
     distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
184
     prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
185
     modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
186
     Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
187
     all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
188
     the Program or works based on it.
189
 
190
     6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
191
     Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
192
     original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
193
     these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
194
     restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
195
     You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
196
     this License.
197
 
198
     7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
199
     infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
200
     conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
201
     otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
202
     excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
203
     distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
204
     License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
205
     may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
206
     license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
207
     all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
208
     the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
209
     refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
210
 
211
     If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
212
     any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
213
     apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
214
     circumstances.
215
 
216
     It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
217
     patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
218
     such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
219
     integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
220
     implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
221
     generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
222
     through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
223
     system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
224
     to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
225
     impose that choice.
226
 
227
     This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
228
     be a consequence of the rest of this License.
229
 
230
     8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
231
     certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
232
     original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
233
     may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
234
     those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
235
     countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
236
     the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
237
 
238
     9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
239
     of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
240
     be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
241
     address new problems or concerns.
242
 
243
     Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
244
     specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
245
     later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
246
     either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
247
     Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
248
     this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
249
     Foundation.
250
 
251
     10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
252
     programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
253
     to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
254
     Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
255
     make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
256
     of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
257
     of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
258
 
259
     		    NO WARRANTY
260
 
261
     11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
262
     FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
263
     OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
264
     PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
265
     OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
266
     MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
267
     TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
268
     PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
269
     REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
270
 
271
     12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
272
     WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
273
     REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
274
     INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
275
     OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
276
     TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
277
     YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
278
     PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
279
     POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
280
 
281
     	     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
282
 
283
     Appendix: How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
284
 
285
     If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
286
     possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
287
     free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
288
 
289
     To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
290
     to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
291
     convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
292
     the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
293
 
294
     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
295
     Copyright (C) 19yy  <name of author>
296
 
297
     This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
298
     it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
299
     the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
300
     (at your option) any later version.
301
 
302
     This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
303
     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
304
     MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
305
     GNU General Public License for more details.
306
 
307
     You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
308
     along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
18122 mrdocs 309
     Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA.

311
     Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
312
 
313
     If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
314
     when it starts in an interactive mode:
315
 
316
     Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) 19yy name of author
317
     Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
318
     This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
319
     under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
320
 
321
     The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
322
     parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
323
     be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
324
     mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
325
 
326
     You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
327
     school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
328
     necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
329
 
330
     Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
331
     `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

336
     This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
337
     proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
338
     consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
339
     library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
340
     Public License instead of this License.
