     10 
     11  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your 
     12freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public 
     13License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free 
    1614software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This 
    1715General Public License applies to most of the Free Software 
    1816Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to 
    1917using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by 
    20 the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to 
     18the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to 
    2119your programs, too. 
    2220 
    23 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. 
    24 Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have 
    25 the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this 
    26 service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you 
    27 want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new 
    28 free programs; and that you know you can do these things. 
    29  
    30 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone 
    31 to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.  These 
    32 restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you 
     21  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not 
     22price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you 
     23have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for 
     24this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it 
     25if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it 
     26in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. 
     27 
     28  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid 
     29anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. 
     30These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you 
    3331distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. 
    3432 
    35 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis 
    36 or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you 
    37 have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source 
    38 code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. 
    39  
    40 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and 
     33  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether 
     34gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that 
     35you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the 
     36source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their 
     37rights. 
     38 
     39  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and 
    4140(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, 
    4241distribute and/or modify the software. 
    4342 
    44 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain 
     43  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain 
    4544that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free 
    4645software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we 
     
    4948authors' reputations. 
    5049 
    51 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. 
    52 We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will 
    53 individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program 
    54 proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent 
    55 must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. 
    56  
    57 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and 
     50  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software 
     51patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free 
     52program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the 
     53program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any 
     54patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. 
     55 
     56  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and 
    5857modification follow. 
    5958 
    60                       GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE 
    61     TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 
    62   0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a 
    63      notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed 
    64      under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", 
    65      below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on 
    66      the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under 
    67      copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a 
    68      portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or 
    69      translated into another language.  (Hereinafter, translation is 
    70      included without limitation in the term "modification".)  Each 
    71     licensee is addressed as "you". 
    72  
    73      Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are 
    74      not covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act 
    75      of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the 
    76      Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on 
    77      the Program (independent of having been made by running the 
    78      Program).  Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. 
     59                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE 
     60   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 
     61 
     62  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains 
     63a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed 
     64under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below, 
     65refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" 
     66means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: 
     67that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, 
     68either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another 
     69language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in 
     70the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you". 
     71 
     72Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not 
     73covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of 
     74running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program 
     75is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the 
     76Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). 
     77Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. 
    7978 
    8079  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 
    85      warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of 
    86      this License along with the Program. 
    87  
    88      You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, 
    89      and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange 
    90      for a fee. 
     80source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you 
     81conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate 
     82copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the 
     83notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; 
     84and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License 
     85along with the Program. 
     86 
     87You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and 
     88you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee. 
    9189 
    9290  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion 
    93      of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and 
    94      distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 
    95      above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions: 
    96  
    97        a. You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices 
    98           stating that you changed the files and the date of any change. 
    99  
    100        b. You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that 
    101           in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program 
    102           or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge 
    103           to all third parties under the terms of this License. 
    104  
    105        c. If the modified program normally reads commands interactively 
    106           when run, you must cause it, when started running for such 
    107           interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display 
    108           an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and 
    109           a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you 
    110           provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the 
    111           program under these conditions, and telling the user how to 
    112           view a copy of this License.  (Exception: if the Program 
    113           itself is interactive but does not normally print such an 
    114           announcement, your work based on the Program is not required 
    115           to print an announcement.) 
    116  
    117      These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If 
    118      identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the 
    119      Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate 
    120      works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not 
    121      apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate 
    122      works.  But when you distribute the same sections as part of a 
    123      whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of 
    124      the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions 
    125      for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each 
    126      and every part regardless of who wrote it. 
    127  
    128      Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or 
    129      contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the 
    130      intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of 
    131      derivative or collective works based on the Program. 
    132  
    133      In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the 
    134      Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on 
    135      a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the 
    136      other work under the scope of this License. 
     91of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and 
     92distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 
     93above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions: 
     94 
     95    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices 
     96    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change. 
     97 
     98    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in 
     99    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any 
     100    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third 
     101    parties under the terms of this License. 
     102 
     103    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively 
     104    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such 
     105    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an 
     106    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a 
     107    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide 
     108    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under 
     109    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this 
     110    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but 
     111    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on 
     112    the Program is not required to print an announcement.) 
     113 
     114These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If 
     115identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, 
     116and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in 
     117themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those 
     118sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you 
     119distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based 
     120on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of 
     121this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the 
     122entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it. 
     123 
     124Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest 
     125your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to 
     126exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or 
     127collective works based on the Program. 
     128 
     129In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program 
     130with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of 
     131a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under 
     132the scope of this License. 
    137133 
    138134  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, 
    139      under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms 
    140      of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the 
    141      following: 
    142  
    143        a. Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable 
    144           source code, which must be distributed under the terms of 
    145           Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for 
    146           software interchange; or, 
    147  
    148        b. Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three 
    149           years, to give any third-party, for a charge no more than your 
    150           cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete 
    151           machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be 
    152           distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a 
    153           medium customarily used for software interchange; or, 
    154  
    155        c. Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer 
    156           to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is 
    157           allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you 
    158           received the program in object code or executable form with 
    159           such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.) 
    160  
    161      The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for 
    162      making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete 
    163      source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, 
    164      plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts 
    165      used to control compilation and installation of the executable. 
    166      However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need 
    167      not include anything that is normally distributed (in either 
    168      source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, 
    169      kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable 
    170      runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable. 
    171  
    172      If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering 
    173      access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent 
    174      access to copy the source code from the same place counts as 
    175      distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not 
    176      compelled to copy the source along with the object code. 
     135under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of 
     136Sections 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 
     155The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for 
     156making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source 
     157code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any 
     158associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to 
     159control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a 
     160special exception, the source code distributed need not include 
     161anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary 
     162form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the 
     163operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component 
     164itself accompanies the executable. 
     165 
     166If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering 
     167access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent 
     168access to copy the source code from the same place counts as 
     169distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not 
     170compelled to copy the source along with the object code. 
    177171 
    178172  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program 
    179      except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt 
    180      otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is 
    181      void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this 
    182      License.  However, parties who have received copies, or rights, 
    183      from you under this License will not have their licenses 
    184      terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance. 
     173except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt 
     174otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is 
     175void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. 
     176However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under 
     177this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such 
     178parties remain in full compliance. 
    185179 
    186180  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not 
    187      signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify 
    188      or distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions 
    189      are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. 
    190      Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work 
    191      based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this 
    192      License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, 
    193      distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it. 
     181signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or 
     182distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are 
     183prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by 
     184modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the 
     185Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and 
     186all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying 
     187the Program or works based on it. 
    194188 
    195189  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the 
    196      Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the 
    197      original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program 
    198      subject to these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any 
    199      further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights 
    200      granted herein.  You are not responsible for enforcing compliance 
    201      by third parties to this License. 
     190Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the 
     191original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to 
     192these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further 
     193restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. 
     194You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to 
     195this License. 
    202196 
    203197  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent

    212      royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who 
    213      receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only 
    214      way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain

    231      licensee cannot impose that choice.

     282            How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs 
     283 
     284  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest 
    295285possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it 
    296 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these 
    297 terms. 
    298  
    299 To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest to 
    300 attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey 
    301 the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the 
    302 "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
