+GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
+Version 2, June 1991
+Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
+59 Temple Place - Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA
+Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
+of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
+The licenses for most software 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
+software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General
+Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's
+software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it.
+(Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the
+GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your
+When we speak of free software, 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 software (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 software 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. These
+restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute
+copies of the software, 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.
+We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
+(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
+distribute and/or modify the software.
+Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
+that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
+software. If the software is modified 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 reflect on the original
+Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents.
+We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will
+individually obtain patent licenses, in effect 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.
+The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
+TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR
+COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND
+0. This 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. The "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 modifications and/or translated into another language.
+(Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term
+"modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
+Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
+covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The 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.
+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
+You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
+you may at your option offer 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 modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
+above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
+ a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
+ stating that you changed the files 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 modified 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.)
+These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
+identifiable 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.
+Thus, 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 software interchange; or,
+ b) Accompany it with a written offer, 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 software interchange; or,
+ c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
+ to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
+ allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
+ received the program in object code or executable form with
+ such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
+The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
+making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
+code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
+associated interface definition files, 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
+If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to
+copy from a designated place, then offering 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. Any attempt 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
+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. These actions are
+prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, 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
+software distribution system, which is implemented by public license
+practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide
+range of software distributed through that system in reliance on
+consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to
+decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other
+system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
+This 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. The Free Software 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 differ in
+detail to address new problems or concerns.
+Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
+specifies 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
+Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number
+of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free
+10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
+programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
+to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
+Software Foundation, write to the Free Software 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
+software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
+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
+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
