6
+ Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
7
+ of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

+
9
+                            Preamble
10
+
11
+  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
12
+freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
13
+License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
14
+software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
15
+General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
16
+Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
17
+using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
18
+the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
19
+your programs, too.
20
+
21
+  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
22
+price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
23
+have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
24
+this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
25
+if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
26
+in 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
29
+anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
30
+These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
31
+distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
32
+
33
+  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
34
+gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
35
+you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
36
+source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
37
+rights.
38
+
39
+  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
40
+(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
41
+distribute and/or modify the software.
42
+
43
+  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
44
+that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
45
+software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
46
+want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
47
+that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
48
+authors' reputations.
49
+
50
+  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
51
+patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
52
+program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
53
+program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
54
+patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
55
+
56
+  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
57
+modification follow.
58
+
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
63
+a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
64
+under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
65
+refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
66
+means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
67
+that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
68
+either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
69
+language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
70
+the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
71
+
72
+Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
73
+covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
74
+running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
75
+is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
76
+Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
77
+Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
78
+
79
+  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
80
+source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
81
+conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
82
+copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
83
+notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
84
+and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
85
+along with the Program.
86
+
87
+You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
88
+you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
89
+
90
+  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
91
+of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
92
+distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
93
+above, 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
+
114
+These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
115
+identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
116
+and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
117
+themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
118
+sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
119
+distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
120
+on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
121
+this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
122
+entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
123
+
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.
279
+
280
+                     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
281
+
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
285
+possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
286
+free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
287
+
288
+  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
289
+to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
290
+convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
291
+the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
292
+
293
+    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
294
+    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
295
+
296
+    This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
297
+    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
298
+    the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
299
+    (at your option) any later version.
300
+
301
+    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
302
+    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
303
+    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
304
+    GNU General Public License for more details.
305
+
306
+    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
307
+    with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
308
+    51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.
309
+
310
+Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
311
+
312
+If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
313
+when it starts in an interactive mode:
314
+
315
+    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
316
+    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
317
+    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
318
+    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
319
+
320
+The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
321
+parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
322
+be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
323
+mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
324
+
325
+You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
326
+school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
327
+necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
328
+
329
+  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
330
+  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

335
+This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
336
+proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
337
+consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
338
+library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
339
+Public License instead of this License.
