14 The General Public License (GPL)
15 Version 2, June 1991
16
17 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 675 Mass Ave,
18 Cambridge, MA 02139, USA. Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute
19 verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not
20 allowed.
21
22 Preamble
23
24 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to
25 share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is
26 intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to
27 make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public
28 License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and
29 to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free
30 Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General
31 Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
32
33 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price.
34 Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the
35 freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this
36 service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
37 want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
38 free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
39
40 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone
41 to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These
42 restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
43 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
44
45 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis
46 or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have.
47 You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code.
48 And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
49
50 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
51 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
52 distribute and/or modify the software.
53
54 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
55 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
56 software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
57 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
58 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
59 authors' reputations.
60
61 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents.
62 We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will
63 individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program
64 proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must
65 be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
66
67 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
68 modification follow.
69
70 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND
71 MODIFICATION
72
73 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a
74 notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under
75 the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers
76 to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means
77 either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is
78 to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either
79 verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language.
80 (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term
81 "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
82
83 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
84 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running
85 the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is
86 covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program
87 (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that
88 is true depends on what the Program does.
89
90 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source
91 code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously
92 and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice
93 and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to
94 this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other
95 recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
96
97 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
98 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
99
100 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of
101 it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute
102 such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided
103 that you also meet all of these conditions:
104
105 a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating
106 that you changed the files and the date of any change.
107
108 b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole
109 or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof,
110 to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the
111 terms of this License.
112
113 c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when
114 run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in
115 the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an
116 appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or
117 else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may
118 redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user
119 how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is
120 interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work
121 based on 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, and
125 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 on
129 the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this
130 License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire
131 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 a
140 storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the
141 scope of this License.
142
143 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under
144 Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections
145 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
146
147 a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source
148 code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
149 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
150
151 b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to
152 give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically
153 performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the
154 corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections
155 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
156
157 c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
158 distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only
159 for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in
160 object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with
161 Subsection b above.)
162
163 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
164 making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code
165 means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
166 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control
167 compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special
168 exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is
169 normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
170 components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on
171 which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the
172 executable.
173
174 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access
175 to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy
176 the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source
177 code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source
178 along with the object code.
179
180 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
181 except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise
182 to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will
183 automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties
184 who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will
185 not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in
186 full compliance.
187
188 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
189 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
190 distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
191 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
192 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
193 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all
194 its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
195 Program or works based on it.
196
197 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
198 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
199 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
200 these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions
201 on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not
202 responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.
203
204 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
205 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
206 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
207 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
208 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute
209 so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and
210 any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not
211 distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would
212 not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who
213 receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you
214 could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
215 distribution of the Program.
216
217 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
218 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
219 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
220 circumstances.
221
222 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
223 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
224 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
225 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented
226 by public license practices. Many people have made generous
227 contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that
228 system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to
229 the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute
230 software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that
231 choice.
232
233 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be
234 a consequence of the rest of this License.
235
236 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
237 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
238 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may
239 add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those
240 countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries
241 not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the
242 limitation as if written in the body of this License.
243
244 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
245 of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
246 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
247 address new problems or concerns.
248
249 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
250 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
251 later version", you have the option of following the terms and
252 conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
253 the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version
254 number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the
255 Free Software Foundation.
256
257 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
258 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the
259 author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the
260 Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we
261 sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the
262 two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free
263 software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
264
265 NO WARRANTY
266
267 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
268 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
269 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
270 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER
271 EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED
272 WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE
273 ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH
274 YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL
275 NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
276
277 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
278 WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
279 AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR
280 DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
281 DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM
282 (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED
283 INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF
284 THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR
285 OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
286
287 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS

291
292 The Artistic License
293
294 Preamble
295
296 The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a
297 Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some
298 semblance of artistic control over the development of the package, while
299 giving the users of the package the right to use and distribute the
300 Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make
301 reasonable modifications.
302
303 Definitions:
304
305 - "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the Copyright
306 Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files created through textual
307 modification.
308 - "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not
309 been modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes of the
310 Copyright Holder.
311 - "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or copyrights for
312 the package.
313 - "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing this Package.
314 - "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the basis of
315 media cost, duplication charges, time of people involved, and so on. (You
316 will not be required to justify it to the Copyright Holder, but only to the
317 computing community at large as a market that must bear the fee.)
318 - "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item itself, though
319 there may be fees involved in handling the item. It also means that
320 recipients of the item may redistribute it under the same conditions they
321 received it.
322
323 1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
324 Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
325 duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated
326 disclaimers.
327
328 2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
329 derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder. A Package
330 modified in such a way shall still be considered the Standard Version.
331
332 3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way,
333 provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating
334 how and when you changed that file, and provided that you do at least
335 ONE of the following:
336
337 a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise
338 make them Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications
339 to Usenet or an equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on
340 a major archive site such as ftp.uu.net, or by allowing the
341 Copyright Holder to include your modifications in the Standard
342 Version of the Package.
343
344 b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or
345 organization.
346
347 c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not
348 conflict with standard executables, which must also be provided,
349 and provide a separate manual page for each non-standard
350 executable that clearly documents how it differs from the Standard
351 Version.
352
353 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
354
355 4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
356 executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
357
358 a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library
359 files, together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent)
360 on where to get the Standard Version.
361
362 b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of
363 the Package with your modifications.
364
365 c) accompany any non-standard executables with their
366 corresponding Standard Version executables, giving the
367 non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
368 documenting the differences in manual pages (or equivalent),
369 together with instructions on where to get the Standard Version.
370
371 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
372
373 5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this
374 Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this Package.
375 You may not charge a fee for this Package itself. However, you may
376 distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly commercial)
377 programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial) software distribution
378 provided that you do not advertise this Package as a product of your
379 own.
380
381 6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
382 output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall under
383 the copyright of this Package, but belong to whomever generated them,
384 and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated with this Package.
385
386 7. C or perl subroutines supplied by you and linked into this Package
387 shall not be considered part of this Package.
388
389 8. Aggregation of this Package with a commercial distribution is always
390 permitted provided that the use of this Package is embedded; that is,
391 when no overt attempt is made to make this Package's interfaces visible
392 to the end user of the commercial distribution. Such use shall not be
393 construed as a distribution of this Package.
394
395 9. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or
396 promote products derived from this software without specific prior
397 written permission.
398
399 10. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
400 WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
401 MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
402
403 The End
