     31
     32The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
     33freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
     34License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
     35software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
     36General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
     37Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
     38using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
     39the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
     40your programs, too.
     41
     42When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
     43price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
     44have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
     45this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
     46if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
     47in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
     48
     49To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
     50anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
     51These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
     52distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
     53
     54For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
     55gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
     56you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
     57source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
     58rights.
     59
     60We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
     61(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
     62distribute and/or modify the software.
     63
     64Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
     65that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
     66software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
     67want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
     68that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
     69authors' reputations.
     70
     71Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
     72patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
     73program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
     74program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
     75patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
     76
     77The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
     78modification follow.

     83TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION</div>
     84}}}
     85
     860. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
     87a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
     88under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
     89refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
     90means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
     91that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
     92either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
     93language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
     94the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
     95
     96Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
     97covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
     98running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
     99is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
     100Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
     101Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
     102
     1031. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
     104source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
     105conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
     106copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
     107notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
     108and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
     109along with the Program.
     110
     111You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
     112you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
     113
     1142. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
     115of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
     116distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
     117above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
     118
     119    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
     120    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
     121
     122    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
     123    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
     124    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
     125    parties under the terms of this License.
     126
     127    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
     128    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
     129    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
     130    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
     131    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
     132    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
     133    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
     134    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
     135    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
     136    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
     137
     138These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
     139identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
     140and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
     141themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
     142sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
     143distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
     144on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
     145this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
     146entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
     147
     148Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
     149your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
     150exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
     151collective works based on the Program.
     152
     153In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
     154with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
     155a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
     156the scope of this License.
     157
     1583. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
     159under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
     160Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
     161
     162    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
     163    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
     164    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
     165
     166    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
     167    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
     168    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
     169    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
     170    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
     171    customarily used for software interchange; or,
     172
     173    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
     174    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
     175    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
     176    received the program in object code or executable form with such
     177    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
     178
     179The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
     180making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
     181code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
     182associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
     183control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
     184special exception, the source code distributed need not include
     185anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
     186form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
     187operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
     188itself accompanies the executable.
     189
     190If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
     191access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
     192access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
     193distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
     194compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
     195
     1964. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
     197except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
     198otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
     199void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
     200However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
     201this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
     202parties remain in full compliance.
     203
     2045. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
     205signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
     206distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
     207prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
     208modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
     209Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
     210all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
     211the Program or works based on it.
     212
     2136. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
     214Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
     215original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
     216these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
     217restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
     218You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
     219this License.
     220
     2217. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
     222infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
     223conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
     224otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
     225excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
     226distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
     227License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
     228may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
     229license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
     230all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
     231the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
     232refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
     233
     234If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
     235any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
     236apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
     237circumstances.
     238
     239It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
     240patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
     241such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
     242integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
     243implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
     244generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
     245through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
     246system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
     247to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
     248impose that choice.
     249
     250This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
     251be a consequence of the rest of this License.
     252
     2538. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
     254certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
     255original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
     256may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
     257those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
     258countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
     259the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
     260
     2619. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
     262of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
     263be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
     264address new problems or concerns.
     265
     266Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
     267specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
     268later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
     269either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
     270Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
     271this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
     272Foundation.
     273
     27410. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
     275programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
     276to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
     277Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
     278make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
     279of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
     280of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
     281
     282{{{
     283#!html
     284<div style="text-align: center;">NO WARRANTY</div>
     285}}}
     286
     28711. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
     288FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
     289OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
     290PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
     291OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
     292MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
     293TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
     294PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
     295REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
     296
     29712. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
     298WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
     299REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
     300INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
     301OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
     302TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
     303YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
     304PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
     305POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
