<p>Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.</p>
<p>675 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139, US</p>
<p>AEveryone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this licensedocument, but changing it is not allowed.</p>
<p>Preamble</p>
<p>The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom toshare and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intendedto guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make surethe software is free for all its users. This General Public License appliesto most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other programwhose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundationsoftware is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) Youcan apply it to your programs, too.</p>
<p>When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. OurGeneral Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedomto distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if youwish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that youcan change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and thatyou know you can do these things.</p>
<p>To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone todeny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. Theserestrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distributecopies of the software, or if you modify it.</p>
<p>For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis orfor a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. Youmust make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And youmust show them these terms so they know their rights.</p>
<p>We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2)offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distributeand/or modify the software.</p>
<p>Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain thateveryone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. Ifthe software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want itsrecipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that anyproblems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors'reputations.</p>
<p>Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. Wewish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program willindividually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the programproprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must belicensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.</p>
<p>The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modificationfollow.</p>
<p>GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE</p>
<p>TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION</p>
<p>0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a noticeplaced by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the termsof this General Public License. The &quot;Program&quot;, below, refers to any suchprogram or work, and a &quot;work based on the Program&quot; means either the Programor any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a workcontaining the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or withmodifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter,translation is included without limitation in the term &quot;modification&quot;.) Eachlicensee is addressed as &quot;you&quot;.</p>
<p>Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not coveredby this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Programis not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if itscontents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having beenmade by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what theProgram does.</p>
<p>1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source codeas you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously andappropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice anddisclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to thisLicense and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients ofthe Program a copy of this License along with the Program.</p>
<p>You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and youmay at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.</p>
<p>2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it,thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute suchmodifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that youalso meet all of these conditions:</p>
<p>a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating thatyou changed the files and the date of any change.</p>
<p>b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole orin part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to belicensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms ofthis License.</p>
<p>c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run,you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the mostordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriatecopyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, sayingthat you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the programunder these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of thisLicense. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does notnormally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is notrequired to print an announcement.)</p>
<p>These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiablesections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can bereasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, thenthis License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when youdistribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sectionsas part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution ofthe whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for otherlicensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every partregardless of who wrote it.</p>
<p>Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest yourrights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercisethe right to control the distribution of derivative or collective worksbased on the Program.</p>
<p>In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program withthe Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storageor distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of thisLicense.</p>
<p>3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, underSection 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:</p>
<p>a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable sourcecode, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above ona medium customarily used for software interchange; or,</p>
<p>b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, togive any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physicallyperforming source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of thecorresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,</p>
<p>c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer todistribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only fornoncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in objectcode or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection babove.)</p>
<p>The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for makingmodifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means allthe source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interfacedefinition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation andinstallation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the sourcecode distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (ineither source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel,and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless thatcomponent itself accompanies the executable.</p>
<p>If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access tocopy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy thesource code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code,even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along withthe object code.</p>
<p>4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except asexpressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy,modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automaticallyterminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have receivedcopies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licensesterminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.</p>
<p>5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signedit. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute theProgram or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if youdo not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing theProgram (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance ofthis License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying,distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.</p>
<p>6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on theProgram), the recipient automatically receives a license from the originallicensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these termsand conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on therecipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsiblefor enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.</p>
<p>7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patentinfringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement orotherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do notexcuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute soas to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and anyother pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distributethe Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permitroyalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copiesdirectly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy bothit and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of theProgram.</p>
<p>If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under anyparticular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply andthe section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.</p>
<p>It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patentsor other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims;this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the freesoftware distribution system, which is implemented by public licensepractices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range ofsoftware distributed through that system in reliance on consistentapplication of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he orshe is willing to distribute software through any other system and alicensee cannot impose that choice.</p>
<p>This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be aconsequence of the rest of this License.</p>
<p>8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certaincountries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the originalcopyright holder who places the Program under this License may add anexplicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, sothat distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded.In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in thebody of this License.</p>
<p>9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions ofthe General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will besimilar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail toaddress new problems or concerns.</p>
<p>Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Programspecifies a version number of this License which applies to it and &quot;anylater version&quot;, you have the option of following the terms and conditionseither of that version or of any later version published by the FreeSoftware Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number ofthis License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free SoftwareFoundation.</p>
<p>10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programswhose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask forpermission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free SoftwareFoundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes makeexceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals ofpreserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and ofpromoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.</p>
<p>NO WARRANTY</p>
<p>11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FORTHE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHENOTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIESPROVIDE THE PROGRAM &quot;AS IS&quot; WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSEDOR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OFMERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TOTHE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAMPROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR ORCORRECTION.</p>
<p>12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITINGWILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/ORREDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISINGOUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TOLOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU ORTHIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHERPROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THEPOSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.</p>
<p>END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS</p>
