We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the
soware, and (2) oer you this license which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the soware.
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make
certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for
this free soware. If the soware is modied by someone else
and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they
have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by
others will not reect on the original authors’ reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by soware
patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a
free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in eect
making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made
it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use
or not licensed at all.
e precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modication follow.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING,
DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
is License applies to any program or other work which
contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may
be distributed under the terms of this General Public License.
e ‘Program’, below, refers to any such program or work, and
a ‘work based on the Program’ means either the Program or
any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or
with modications and/or translated into another language.
(Hereinaer, translation is included without limitation in the
term ‘modication’.) Each licensee is addressed as ‘you’.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modication are
not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. e act
of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from
the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work
based on the Program (independent of having been made by
running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what
the Program does.
ENGLISH
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy
an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty;
keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to
the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients
of the Program a copy of this License along with the
Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a
copy, and you may at your option oer warranty protection
in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any
portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program,
and copy and distribute such modications or work under
the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet
all of these conditions:
a). You must cause the modied les to carry prominent
notices stating that you changed the les and the date of
any change.
b). You must cause any work that you distribute or publish,
that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the
Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no
charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
c). If the modied program normally reads commands
interactively when run, you must cause it, when started
running for such interactive use in the most ordinary
way, to print or display an announcement including an
appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is
no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty)
and that users may redistribute the program under these
conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive
but does not normally print such an announcement, your
work based on the Program is not required to print an
announcement.)
ese requirements apply to the modied work as a whole.
If identiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Program, and can be reasonably considered independent
and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its
terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute
them as separate works. But when you distribute the same
sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the
Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the
terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees
extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part
regardless of who wrote it.
us, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or
contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather,
the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution
of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based
on the Program with the Program (or with a work based
on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution
medium does not bring the other work under the scope of
this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on
it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under
the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also
do one of the following:
a). Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-
readable source code, which must be distributed under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily
used for soware interchange; or,
b). Accompany it with a written oer, valid for at least three
years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than
your cost of physically performing source distribution,
a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding
source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections
1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for soware
interchange; or,
c). Accompany it with the information you received as to
the oer to distribute corresponding source code. (is
alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution
and only if you received the program in object code
or executable form with such an oer, in accord with
Subsection b above.)
e source code for a work means the preferred form of
the work for making modications to it. For an executable
work, complete source code means all the source code
for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface
denition les, plus the scripts used to control compilation
and installation of the executable. However, as a special
exception, the source code distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source
or binary form) with the major components (compiler,
kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the
executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by
oering access to copy from a designated place, then
oering equivalent access to copy the source code from the
same place counts as distribution of the source code, even
though third parties are not compelled to copy the source
along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the
Program except as expressly provided under this License.
Anyattempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or
distribute the Program is void, and will automatically
terminate your rights under this License. However, parties
who have received copies, or rights, from you under this
License will not have their licenses terminated so long as
such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to
modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works.
ese actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept
this License. erefore, by modifying or distributing the
Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate
your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms
and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based
on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a
license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or
modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions.
You may not impose any further restrictions on the
recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not
responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to
patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by
court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the
conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the
conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to
satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License
and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence
you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a
patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution
of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or
indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy
both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
distribution of the Program. If any portion of this section
is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular
circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in
other circumstances. It is not the purpose of this section to
induce you to infringe any patents or other property right
claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section
has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free
soware distribution system, which is implemented by
public license practices. Many people have made generous
contributions to the wide range of soware distributed
through that system in reliance on consistent application

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Soware Foundation, Inc.
51 Franklin Street, Fih Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of
this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
e licenses for most soware are designed to take away your
freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General
Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share
and change free soware--to make sure the soware is free for
all its users. is General Public License applies to most of the
Free Soware Foundation’s soware and to any other program
whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Soware
Foundation soware is covered by the GNU Lesser General
Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free soware, we are referring to freedom,
not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make
sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free
soware (and charge for this service if you wish), that you
receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can
change the soware or use pieces of it in new free programs;
and that you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the
rights. ese restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
you if you distribute copies of the soware, or if you modify
it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program,
whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the
rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive
or can get the source code. And you must show them these
terms so they know their rights.
of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if
he or she is willing to distribute soware through any
other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
is section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is
believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted
in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted
interfaces, the original copyright holder who places
the Program under this License may add an explicit
geographical distribution limitation excluding those
countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or
among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this
License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body
of this License.
9. e Free Soware Foundation may publish revised and/or new
versions of the General Public License from time to time.
Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present
version, but may dier in detail to address new problems
or concerns. Each version is given a distinguishing version
number. If the Program species a version number of this
License which applies to it and ‘any later version’, you have
the option of following the terms and conditions either of
that version or of any later version published by the Free
Soware Foundation. If the Program does not specify
a version number of this License, you may choose any
version ever published by the Free Soware Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other
free programs whose distribution conditions are dierent,
write to the author to ask for permission. For soware
which is copyrighted by the Free Soware Foundation,
write to the Free Soware Foundation; we sometimes make
exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two
goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our
free soware and of promoting the sharing and reuse of
soware generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF
CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE
PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE
STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS
AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM
‘AS IS’ WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND,
EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT
NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES
OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM
PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL
NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW
OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT
HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY
MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM
AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR
DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES
ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE
THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED
INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR
THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM
TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN
IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
How to Apply ese Terms to Your New Programs
If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the
greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this
is to make it free soware which everyone can redistribute and
change under these terms.
To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
to attach them to the start of each source le to most eectively
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each le should have at
least the ‘copyright’ line and a pointer to where the full notice
is found.
One line to give the program’s name and a brief idea of what
it does.
Copyright (C) <year><name of author>
is program is free soware; you can redistribute it and/or
modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License
as published by the Free Soware Foundation; either version 2
of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
is program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied
warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public
License for more details.
You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public
License along with this program; if not, write to the Free
Soware Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston,
MA 02111-1307 USA
Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and
paper mail.
If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like
this when it starts in an interactive mode:
Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for
details type ‘show w’. is is free soware, and you are welcome
to redistribute it under certain conditions; type ‘show c’ for
details.
e hypothetical commands ‘show w’ and ‘show c’ should show
the appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course,
the commands you use may be called something other than
‘show w’ and ‘show c’; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu
items--whatever suits your program.
You should also get your employer (if you work as a
programmer) or your school, if any, to sign a ‘copyright
disclaimer’ for the program, if necessary. Here is a sample; alter
the names:
Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the
program ‘Gnomovision’ (which makes passes at compilers)
written by James Hacker.

is General Public License does not permit incorporating
you program into proprietary programs. If your program is
subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit
linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what
you want to do,
use the GNU Library General Public License instead of this
License.
