			    Preamble
nkeynes@179
    10
nkeynes@179
    11
  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
nkeynes@179
    12
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
nkeynes@179
    13
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
nkeynes@179
    14
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
nkeynes@179
    15
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
nkeynes@179
    16
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
nkeynes@179
    17
using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
nkeynes@179
    18
the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
nkeynes@179
    19
your programs, too.
nkeynes@179
    20
nkeynes@179
    21
  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
nkeynes@179
    22
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
nkeynes@179
    23
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
nkeynes@179
    24
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
nkeynes@179
    25
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
nkeynes@179
    26
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
nkeynes@179
    27
nkeynes@179
    28
  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
nkeynes@179
    29
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
nkeynes@179
    30
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
nkeynes@179
    31
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
nkeynes@179
    32
nkeynes@179
    33
  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
nkeynes@179
    34
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
nkeynes@179
    35
you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
nkeynes@179
    36
source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
nkeynes@179
    37
rights.
nkeynes@179
    38
nkeynes@179
    39
  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
nkeynes@179
    40
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
nkeynes@179
    41
distribute and/or modify the software.
nkeynes@179
    42
nkeynes@179
    43
  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
nkeynes@179
    44
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
nkeynes@179
    45
software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
nkeynes@179
    46
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
nkeynes@179
    47
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
nkeynes@179
    48
authors' reputations.
nkeynes@179
    49
nkeynes@179
    50
  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
nkeynes@179
    51
patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
nkeynes@179
    52
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
nkeynes@179
    53
program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
nkeynes@179
    54
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
nkeynes@179
    55
nkeynes@179
    56
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
nkeynes@179
    57
modification follow.

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

	    How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
nkeynes@179
   283
nkeynes@179
   284
  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
nkeynes@179
   285
possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
nkeynes@179
   286
free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
nkeynes@179
   287
nkeynes@179
   288
  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
nkeynes@179
   289
to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
nkeynes@179
   290
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
nkeynes@179
   291
the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
nkeynes@179
   292
nkeynes@179
   293
    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>

    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License

   311
Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
nkeynes@179
   312
nkeynes@179
   313
If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
nkeynes@179
   314
when it starts in an interactive mode:
nkeynes@179
   315
nkeynes@179
   316
    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year  name of author
nkeynes@179
   317
    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
nkeynes@179
   318
    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
nkeynes@179
   319
    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
nkeynes@179
   320
nkeynes@179
   321
The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
nkeynes@179
   322
parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
nkeynes@179
   323
be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
nkeynes@179
   324
mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
nkeynes@179
   325
nkeynes@179
   326
You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
nkeynes@179
   327
school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
nkeynes@179
   328
necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
nkeynes@179
   337
proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
nkeynes@179
   338
consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
nkeynes@179
   339
library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
nkeynes@179
   340
Public License instead of this License.
