5 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under
6 the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software
7 Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later
8 version.

10 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT
11 ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS
12 FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License for more details.

14 Below is a copy of the terms and conditions of the GNU General Public License,
15 version 2; Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
16
17 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
18 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
19 under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
20 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
21 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
22 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
23 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
24 language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
25 the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
26
27 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
28 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
29 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
30 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
31 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
32 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
33
34 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
35 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
36 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
37 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
38 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
39 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
40 along with the Program.
41
42 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
43 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
44
45 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
46 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
47 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
48 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
49
50 a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
51 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
52
53 b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
54 whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
55 part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
56 parties under the terms of this License.
57
58 c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
59 when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
60 interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
61 announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
62 notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
63 a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
64 these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
65 License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
66 does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
67 the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
68
69 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
70 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
71 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
72 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
73 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
74 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
75 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
76 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
77 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
78
79 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
80 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
81 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
82 collective works based on the Program.
83
84 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
85 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
86 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
87 the scope of this License.
88
89 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
90 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
91 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
92
93 a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
94 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
95 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
96
97 b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
98 years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
99 cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
100 machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
101 distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
102 customarily used for software interchange; or,
103
104 c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
105 to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
106 allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
107 received the program in object code or executable form with such
108 an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
109
110 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
111 making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
112 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
113 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
114 control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
115 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
116 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
117 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
118 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
119 itself accompanies the executable.
120
121 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
122 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
123 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
124 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
125 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
126
127 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
128 except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
129 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
130 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
131 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
132 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
133 parties remain in full compliance.
134
135 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
136 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
137 distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
138 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
139 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
140 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
141 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
142 the Program or works based on it.
143
144 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
145 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
146 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
147 these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
148 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
149 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
150 this License.
151
152 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
153 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
154 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
155 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
156 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
157 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
158 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
159 may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
160 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
161 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
162 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
163 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
164
165 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
166 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
167 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
168 circumstances.
169
170 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
171 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
172 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
173 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
174 implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
175 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
176 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
177 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
178 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
179 impose that choice.
180
181 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
182 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
183
184 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
185 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
186 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
187 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
188 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
189 countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
190 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
191
192 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
193 of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
194 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
195 address new problems or concerns.
196
197 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
198 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
199 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
200 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
201 Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
202 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
203 Foundation.
204
205 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
206 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
207 to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
208 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
209 make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
210 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
211 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
212
213 NO WARRANTY
214
215 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
216 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
217 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
218 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
219 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
220 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
221 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
222 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
223 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
224
225 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
226 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
227 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
228 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
229 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
230 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
231 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
232 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
233 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
