shade@488 7
shade@488 8 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license
shade@488 9 document, but changing it is not allowed.
shade@488 10
shade@488 11 Preamble
shade@488 12
shade@488 13 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share
shade@488 14 and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to
shade@488 15 guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the
shade@488 16 software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to
shade@488 17 most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose
shade@488 18 authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is
shade@488 19 covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
shade@488 20 your programs, too.
shade@488 21
shade@488 22 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our
shade@488 23 General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to
shade@488 24 distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish),
shade@488 25 that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change
shade@488 26 the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you
shade@488 27 can do these things.
shade@488 28
shade@488 29 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny
shade@488 30 you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions
shade@488 31 translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the
shade@488 32 software, or if you modify it.
shade@488 33
shade@488 34 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for
shade@488 35 a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must
shade@488 36 make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must
shade@488 37 show them these terms so they know their rights.
shade@488 38
shade@488 39 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2)
shade@488 40 offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute
shade@488 41 and/or modify the software.
shade@488 42
shade@488 43 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that
shade@488 44 everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the
shade@488 45 software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to
shade@488 46 know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced
shade@488 47 by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations.
shade@488 48
shade@488 49 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We
shade@488 50 wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will
shade@488 51 individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary.
shade@488 52 To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for
shade@488 53 everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
shade@488 54
shade@488 55 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification
shade@488 56 follow.
shade@488 57
shade@488 58 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
shade@488 59
shade@488 60 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice
shade@488 61 placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of
shade@488 62 this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program
shade@488 63 or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any
shade@488 64 derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the
shade@488 65 Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or
shade@488 66 translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included
shade@488 67 without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as
shade@488 68 "you".
shade@488 69
shade@488 70 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by
shade@488 71 this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is
shade@488 72 not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents
shade@488 73 constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by
shade@488 74 running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
shade@488 75
shade@488 76 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as
shade@488 77 you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
shade@488 78 appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
shade@488 79 disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License
shade@488 80 and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the
shade@488 81 Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
shade@488 82
shade@488 83 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may
shade@488 84 at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
shade@488 85
shade@488 86 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus
shade@488 87 forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications
shade@488 88 or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of
shade@488 89 these conditions:
shade@488 90
shade@488 91 a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating
shade@488 92 that you changed the files and the date of any change.
shade@488 93
shade@488 94 b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or
shade@488 95 in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be
shade@488 96 licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of
shade@488 97 this License.
shade@488 98
shade@488 99 c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run,
shade@488 100 you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the
shade@488 101 most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an
shade@488 102 appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or
shade@488 103 else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute
shade@488 104 the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy
shade@488 105 of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does
shade@488 106 not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is
shade@488 107 not required to print an announcement.)
shade@488 108
shade@488 109 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable
shade@488 110 sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably
shade@488 111 considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and
shade@488 112 its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate
shade@488 113 works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a
shade@488 114 work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms
shade@488 115 of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire
shade@488 116 whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
shade@488 117
shade@488 118 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your
shade@488 119 rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the
shade@488 120 right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on
shade@488 121 the Program.
shade@488 122
shade@488 123 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the
shade@488 124 Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or
shade@488 125 distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this
shade@488 126 License.
shade@488 127
shade@488 128 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under
shade@488 129 Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and
shade@488 130 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
shade@488 131
shade@488 132 a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source
shade@488 133 code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above
shade@488 134 on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
shade@488 135
shade@488 136 b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to
shade@488 137 give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically
shade@488 138 performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the
shade@488 139 corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1
shade@488 140 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
shade@488 141
shade@488 142 c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
shade@488 143 distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only
shade@488 144 for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in
shade@488 145 object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with
shade@488 146 Subsection b above.)
shade@488 147
shade@488 148 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making
shade@488 149 modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all
shade@488 150 the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface
shade@488 151 definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation
shade@488 152 of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code
shade@488 153 distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either
shade@488 154 source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on)
shade@488 155 of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
shade@488 156 itself accompanies the executable.
shade@488 157
shade@488 158 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy
shade@488 159 from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source
shade@488 160 code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though
shade@488 161 third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
shade@488 162
shade@488 163 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as
shade@488 164 expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify,
shade@488 165 sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate
shade@488 166 your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or
shade@488 167 rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so
shade@488 168 long as such parties remain in full compliance.
shade@488 169
shade@488 170 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it.
shade@488 171 However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program
shade@488 172 or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not
shade@488 173 accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or
shade@488 174 any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to
shade@488 175 do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
shade@488 176 the Program or works based on it.
shade@488 177
shade@488 178 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program),
shade@488 179 the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to
shade@488 180 copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions.
shade@488 181 You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the
shade@488 182 rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by
shade@488 183 third parties to this License.
shade@488 184
shade@488 185 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
shade@488 186 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions
shade@488 187 are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that
shade@488 188 contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the
shade@488 189 conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy
shade@488 190 simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent
shade@488 191 obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all.
shade@488 192 For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution
shade@488 193 of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through
shade@488 194 you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
shade@488 195 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
shade@488 196
shade@488 197 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
shade@488 198 particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and
shade@488 199 the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
shade@488 200
shade@488 201 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or
shade@488 202 other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this
shade@488 203 section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software
shade@488 204 distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many
shade@488 205 people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
shade@488 206 distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
shade@488 207 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to
shade@488 208 distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that
shade@488 209 choice.
shade@488 210
shade@488 211 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a
shade@488 212 consequence of the rest of this License.
shade@488 213
shade@488 214 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain
shade@488 215 countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original
shade@488 216 copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit
shade@488 217 geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that
shade@488 218 distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In
shade@488 219 such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body
shade@488 220 of this License.
shade@488 221
shade@488 222 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the
shade@488 223 General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in
shade@488 224 spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems
shade@488 225 or concerns.
shade@488 226
shade@488 227 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
shade@488 228 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any later
shade@488 229 version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of
shade@488 230 that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation.
shade@488 231 If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may
shade@488 232 choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
shade@488 233
shade@488 234 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs
shade@488 235 whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for
shade@488 236 permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation,
shade@488 237 write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this.
shade@488 238 Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of
shade@488 239 all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of
shade@488 240 software generally.
shade@488 241
shade@488 242 NO WARRANTY
shade@488 243
shade@488 244 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR
shade@488 245 THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE
shade@488 246 STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE
shade@488 247 PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
shade@488 248 INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
shade@488 249 FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND
shade@488 250 PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE,
shade@488 251 YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
shade@488 252
shade@488 253 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL
shade@488 254 ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE
shade@488 255 PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
shade@488 256 GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR
shade@488 257 INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA
shade@488 258 BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
shade@488 259 FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER
shade@488 260 OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
shade@488 261
shade@488 262 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
shade@488 263
shade@488 264 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
shade@488 265
shade@488 266 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible
shade@488 267 use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free software
shade@488 268 which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
shade@488 269
shade@488 270 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach
shade@488 271 them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey the exclusion
shade@488 272 of warranty; and each file should have at least the "copyright" line and a
shade@488 273 pointer to where the full notice is found.
shade@488 274
shade@488 275 One line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.
shade@488 276
shade@488 277 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
shade@488 278
shade@488 279 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it
shade@488 280 under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free
shade@488 281 Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option)
shade@488 282 any later version.
shade@488 283
shade@488 284 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT
shade@488 285 ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or
shade@488 286 FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License for
shade@488 287 more details.
shade@488 288
shade@488 289 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
shade@1321 290 with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
shade@1321 291 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.
shade@488 292
shade@488 293 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
shade@488 294
shade@488 295 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this when it
shade@488 296 starts in an interactive mode:
shade@488 297
shade@488 298 Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author Gnomovision comes
shade@488 299 with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type 'show w'. This is free
shade@488 300 software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions;
shade@488 301 type 'show c' for details.
shade@488 302
shade@488 303 The hypothetical commands 'show w' and 'show c' should show the appropriate
shade@488 304 parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may be
shade@488 305 called something other than 'show w' and 'show c'; they could even be
shade@488 306 mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
shade@488 307
shade@488 308 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your school,
shade@488 309 if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary. Here
shade@488 310 is a sample; alter the names:
shade@488 311
shade@488 312 Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
shade@488 313 'Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

shade@488 318
shade@488 319 This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
shade@488 320 proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
shade@488 321 consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
shade@488 322 library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General Public
shade@488 323 License instead of this License.
shade@488 324
shade@488 325
shade@488 326 "CLASSPATH" EXCEPTION TO THE GPL
shade@488 327
shade@488 328 Certain source files distributed by Oracle America and/or its affiliates are
shade@488 329 subject to the following clarification and special exception to the GPL, but
shade@488 330 only where Oracle has expressly included in the particular source file's header
shade@488 331 the words "Oracle designates this particular file as subject to the "Classpath"
shade@488 332 exception as provided by Oracle in the LICENSE file that accompanied this code."
shade@488 333
shade@488 334 Linking this library statically or dynamically with other modules is making
shade@488 335 a combined work based on this library. Thus, the terms and conditions of
shade@488 336 the GNU General Public License cover the whole combination.
shade@488 337
shade@488 338 As a special exception, the copyright holders of this library give you
shade@488 339 permission to link this library with independent modules to produce an
shade@488 340 executable, regardless of the license terms of these independent modules,
shade@488 341 and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under terms of your
shade@488 342 choice, provided that you also meet, for each linked independent module,
shade@488 343 the terms and conditions of the license of that module. An independent
shade@488 344 module is a module which is not derived from or based on this library. If
shade@488 345 you modify this library, you may extend this exception to your version of
shade@488 346 the library, but you are not obligated to do so. If you do not wish to do
shade@488 347 so, delete this exception statement from your version.
