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
-Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
125
-your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
126
-exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
127
-collective works based on the Program.
128
-
129
-In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
130
-with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
131
-a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
132
-the scope of this License.
133
-
134
-	3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
135
-under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
136
-Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
137
-
138
-		a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
139
-		source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
140
-		1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
141
-
142
-		b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
143
-		years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
144
-		cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
145
-		machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
146
-		distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
147
-		customarily used for software interchange; or,
148
-
149
-		c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
150
-		to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
151
-		allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
152
-		received the program in object code or executable form with such
153
-		an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
154
-
155
-The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
156
-making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
157
-code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
158
-associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
159
-control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
160
-special exception, the source code distributed need not include
161
-anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
162
-form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
163
-operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
164
-itself accompanies the executable.
165
-
166
-If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
167
-access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
168
-access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
169
-distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
170
-compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
171
-
172
-	4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
173
-except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
174
-otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
175
-void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
176
-However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
177
-this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
178
-parties remain in full compliance.
179
-
180
-	5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
181
-signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
182
-distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
183
-prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
184
-modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
185
-Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
186
-all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
187
-the Program or works based on it.
188
-
189
-	6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
190
-Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
191
-original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
192
-these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
193
-restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
194
-You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
195
-this License.
196
-
197
-	7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
198
-infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
199
-conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
200
-otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
201
-excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
202
-distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
203
-License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
204
-may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
205
-license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
206
-all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
207
-the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
208
-refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
209
-
210
-If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
211
-any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
212
-apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
213
-circumstances.
214
-
215
-It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
216
-patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
217
-such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
218
-integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
219
-implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
220
-generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
221
-through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
222
-system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
223
-to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
224
-impose that choice.
225
-
226
-This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
227
-be a consequence of the rest of this License.
228
-
229
-	8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
230
-certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
231
-original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
232
-may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
233
-those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
234
-countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
235
-the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
236
-
237
-	9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
238
-of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
239
-be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
240
-address new problems or concerns.
241
-
242
-Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
243
-specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
244
-later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
245
-either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
246
-Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
247
-this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
248
-Foundation.
249
-
250
-	10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
251
-programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
252
-to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
253
-Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
254
-make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
255
-of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
256
-of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
257
-
258
-			    NO WARRANTY
259
-
260
-	11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
261
-FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
262
-OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
263
-PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
264
-OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
265
-MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
266
-TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
267
-PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
268
-REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
269
-
270
-	12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
271
-WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
272
-REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
273
-INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
274
-OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
275
-TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
276
-YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
277
-PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
278
-POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
