jbulpin@0 5 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
jbulpin@0 6 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
jbulpin@0 7 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
jbulpin@0 8
jbulpin@0 9 [This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also counts
jbulpin@0 10 as the successor of the GNU Library Public License, version 2, hence
jbulpin@0 11 the version number 2.1.]
jbulpin@0 12
jbulpin@0 13 Preamble
jbulpin@0 14
jbulpin@0 15 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
jbulpin@0 16 freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
jbulpin@0 17 Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change
jbulpin@0 18 free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.
jbulpin@0 19
jbulpin@0 20 This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some
jbulpin@0 21 specially designated software packages--typically libraries--of the
jbulpin@0 22 Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to use it. You
jbulpin@0 23 can use it too, but we suggest you first think carefully about whether
jbulpin@0 24 this license or the ordinary General Public License is the better
jbulpin@0 25 strategy to use in any particular case, based on the explanations below.
jbulpin@0 26
jbulpin@0 27 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use,
jbulpin@0 28 not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that
jbulpin@0 29 you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge
jbulpin@0 30 for this service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get
jbulpin@0 31 it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of
jbulpin@0 32 it in new free programs; and that you are informed that you can do
jbulpin@0 33 these things.
jbulpin@0 34
jbulpin@0 35 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
jbulpin@0 36 distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these
jbulpin@0 37 rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
jbulpin@0 38 you if you distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.
jbulpin@0 39
jbulpin@0 40 For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis
jbulpin@0 41 or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave
jbulpin@0 42 you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source
jbulpin@0 43 code. If you link other code with the library, you must provide
jbulpin@0 44 complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them
jbulpin@0 45 with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling
jbulpin@0 46 it. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
jbulpin@0 47
jbulpin@0 48 We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the
jbulpin@0 49 library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal
jbulpin@0 50 permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
jbulpin@0 51
jbulpin@0 52 To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that
jbulpin@0 53 there is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the library is
jbulpin@0 54 modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know
jbulpin@0 55 that what they have is not the original version, so that the original
jbulpin@0 56 author's reputation will not be affected by problems that might be
jbulpin@0 57 introduced by others.
jbulpin@0 58
jbulpin@0 59 Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of
jbulpin@0 60 any free program. We wish to make sure that a company cannot
jbulpin@0 61 effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a
jbulpin@0 62 restrictive license from a patent holder. Therefore, we insist that
jbulpin@0 63 any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be
jbulpin@0 64 consistent with the full freedom of use specified in this license.
jbulpin@0 65
jbulpin@0 66 Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the
jbulpin@0 67 ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU Lesser
jbulpin@0 68 General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and
jbulpin@0 69 is quite different from the ordinary General Public License. We use
jbulpin@0 70 this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those
jbulpin@0 71 libraries into non-free programs.
jbulpin@0 72
jbulpin@0 73 When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using
jbulpin@0 74 a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a
jbulpin@0 75 combined work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary
jbulpin@0 76 General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the
jbulpin@0 77 entire combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser General
jbulpin@0 78 Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with
jbulpin@0 79 the library.
jbulpin@0 80
jbulpin@0 81 We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it
jbulpin@0 82 does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General
jbulpin@0 83 Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less
jbulpin@0 84 of an advantage over competing non-free programs. These disadvantages
jbulpin@0 85 are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many
jbulpin@0 86 libraries. However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain
jbulpin@0 87 special circumstances.
jbulpin@0 88
jbulpin@0 89 For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to
jbulpin@0 90 encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it becomes
jbulpin@0 91 a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must be
jbulpin@0 92 allowed to use the library. A more frequent case is that a free
jbulpin@0 93 library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. In this
jbulpin@0 94 case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free
jbulpin@0 95 software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.
jbulpin@0 96
jbulpin@0 97 In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free
jbulpin@0 98 programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of
jbulpin@0 99 free software. For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in
jbulpin@0 100 non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU
jbulpin@0 101 operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating
jbulpin@0 102 system.
jbulpin@0 103
jbulpin@0 104 Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the
jbulpin@0 105 users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is
jbulpin@0 106 linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run
jbulpin@0 107 that program using a modified version of the Library.
jbulpin@0 108
jbulpin@0 109 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
jbulpin@0 110 modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference between a
jbulpin@0 111 "work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library". The
jbulpin@0 112 former contains code derived from the library, whereas the latter must
jbulpin@0 113 be combined with the library in order to run.
jbulpin@0 114
jbulpin@0 115 GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
jbulpin@0 116 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
jbulpin@0 117
jbulpin@0 118 0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other
jbulpin@0 119 program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or
jbulpin@0 120 other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of
jbulpin@0 121 this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License").
jbulpin@0 122 Each licensee is addressed as "you".
jbulpin@0 123
jbulpin@0 124 A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data
jbulpin@0 125 prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs
jbulpin@0 126 (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
jbulpin@0 127
jbulpin@0 128 The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work
jbulpin@0 129 which has been distributed under these terms. A "work based on the
jbulpin@0 130 Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under
jbulpin@0 131 copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a
jbulpin@0 132 portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
jbulpin@0 133 straightforwardly into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is
jbulpin@0 134 included without limitation in the term "modification".)
jbulpin@0 135
jbulpin@0 136 "Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for
jbulpin@0 137 making modifications to it. For a library, complete source code means
jbulpin@0 138 all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated
jbulpin@0 139 interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation
jbulpin@0 140 and installation of the library.
jbulpin@0 141
jbulpin@0 142 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
jbulpin@0 143 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
jbulpin@0 144 running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from
jbulpin@0 145 such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based
jbulpin@0 146 on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for
jbulpin@0 147 writing it). Whether that is true depends on what the Library does
jbulpin@0 148 and what the program that uses the Library does.
jbulpin@0 149
jbulpin@0 150 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's
jbulpin@0 151 complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
jbulpin@0 152 you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
jbulpin@0 153 appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
jbulpin@0 154 all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any
jbulpin@0 155 warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the
jbulpin@0 156 Library.
jbulpin@0 157
jbulpin@0 158 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
jbulpin@0 159 and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a
jbulpin@0 160 fee.
jbulpin@0 161
jbulpin@0 162 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion
jbulpin@0 163 of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and
jbulpin@0 164 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
jbulpin@0 165 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
jbulpin@0 166
jbulpin@0 167 a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
jbulpin@0 168
jbulpin@0 169 b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices
jbulpin@0 170 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
jbulpin@0 171
jbulpin@0 172 c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no
jbulpin@0 173 charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
jbulpin@0 174
jbulpin@0 175 d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a
jbulpin@0 176 table of data to be supplied by an application program that uses
jbulpin@0 177 the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility
jbulpin@0 178 is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that,
jbulpin@0 179 in the event an application does not supply such function or
jbulpin@0 180 table, the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of
jbulpin@0 181 its purpose remains meaningful.
jbulpin@0 182
jbulpin@0 183 (For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has
jbulpin@0 184 a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
jbulpin@0 185 application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
jbulpin@0 186 application-supplied function or table used by this function must
jbulpin@0 187 be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square
jbulpin@0 188 root function must still compute square roots.)
jbulpin@0 189
jbulpin@0 190 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
jbulpin@0 191 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library,
jbulpin@0 192 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
jbulpin@0 193 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
jbulpin@0 194 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
jbulpin@0 195 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
jbulpin@0 196 on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
jbulpin@0 197 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
jbulpin@0 198 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
jbulpin@0 199 it.
jbulpin@0 200
jbulpin@0 201 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
jbulpin@0 202 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
jbulpin@0 203 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
jbulpin@0 204 collective works based on the Library.
jbulpin@0 205
jbulpin@0 206 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library
jbulpin@0 207 with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of
jbulpin@0 208 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
jbulpin@0 209 the scope of this License.
jbulpin@0 210
jbulpin@0 211 3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
jbulpin@0 212 License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library. To do
jbulpin@0 213 this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
jbulpin@0 214 that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
jbulpin@0 215 instead of to this License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the
jbulpin@0 216 ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
jbulpin@0 217 that version instead if you wish.) Do not make any other change in
jbulpin@0 218 these notices.
jbulpin@0 219
jbulpin@0 220 Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for
jbulpin@0 221 that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all
jbulpin@0 222 subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
jbulpin@0 223
jbulpin@0 224 This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of
jbulpin@0 225 the Library into a program that is not a library.
jbulpin@0 226
jbulpin@0 227 4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or
jbulpin@0 228 derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
jbulpin@0 229 under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany
jbulpin@0 230 it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which
jbulpin@0 231 must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
jbulpin@0 232 medium customarily used for software interchange.
jbulpin@0 233
jbulpin@0 234 If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy
jbulpin@0 235 from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
jbulpin@0 236 source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
jbulpin@0 237 distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
jbulpin@0 238 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
jbulpin@0 239
jbulpin@0 240 5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
jbulpin@0 241 Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or
jbulpin@0 242 linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library". Such a
jbulpin@0 243 work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
jbulpin@0 244 therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
jbulpin@0 245
jbulpin@0 246 However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library
jbulpin@0 247 creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it
jbulpin@0 248 contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the
jbulpin@0 249 library". The executable is therefore covered by this License.
jbulpin@0 250 Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
jbulpin@0 251
jbulpin@0 252 When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file
jbulpin@0 253 that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a
jbulpin@0 254 derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.
jbulpin@0 255 Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be
jbulpin@0 256 linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library. The
jbulpin@0 257 threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
jbulpin@0 258
jbulpin@0 259 If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
jbulpin@0 260 structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline
jbulpin@0 261 functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object
jbulpin@0 262 file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative
jbulpin@0 263 work. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the
jbulpin@0 264 Library will still fall under Section 6.)
jbulpin@0 265
jbulpin@0 266 Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
jbulpin@0 267 distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6.
jbulpin@0 268 Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6,
jbulpin@0 269 whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
jbulpin@0 270
jbulpin@0 271 6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or
jbulpin@0 272 link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a
jbulpin@0 273 work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work
jbulpin@0 274 under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit
jbulpin@0 275 modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse
jbulpin@0 276 engineering for debugging such modifications.
jbulpin@0 277
jbulpin@0 278 You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the
jbulpin@0 279 Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by
jbulpin@0 280 this License. You must supply a copy of this License. If the work
jbulpin@0 281 during execution displays copyright notices, you must include the
jbulpin@0 282 copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference
jbulpin@0 283 directing the user to the copy of this License. Also, you must do one
jbulpin@0 284 of these things:
jbulpin@0 285
jbulpin@0 286 a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding
jbulpin@0 287 machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever
jbulpin@0 288 changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under
jbulpin@0 289 Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable linked
jbulpin@0 290 with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work that
jbulpin@0 291 uses the Library", as object code and/or source code, so that the
jbulpin@0 292 user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified
jbulpin@0 293 executable containing the modified Library. (It is understood
jbulpin@0 294 that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the
jbulpin@0 295 Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the application
jbulpin@0 296 to use the modified definitions.)
jbulpin@0 297
jbulpin@0 298 b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
jbulpin@0 299 Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time a
jbulpin@0 300 copy of the library already present on the user's computer system,
jbulpin@0 301 rather than copying library functions into the executable, and (2)
jbulpin@0 302 will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if
jbulpin@0 303 the user installs one, as long as the modified version is
jbulpin@0 304 interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with.
jbulpin@0 305
jbulpin@0 306 c) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at
jbulpin@0 307 least three years, to give the same user the materials
jbulpin@0 308 specified in Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more
jbulpin@0 309 than the cost of performing this distribution.
jbulpin@0 310
jbulpin@0 311 d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy
jbulpin@0 312 from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the above
jbulpin@0 313 specified materials from the same place.
jbulpin@0 314
jbulpin@0 315 e) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these
jbulpin@0 316 materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
jbulpin@0 317
jbulpin@0 318 For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the
jbulpin@0 319 Library" must include any data and utility programs needed for
jbulpin@0 320 reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special exception,
jbulpin@0 321 the materials to be distributed need not include anything that is
jbulpin@0 322 normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
jbulpin@0 323 components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on
jbulpin@0 324 which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
jbulpin@0 325 the executable.
jbulpin@0 326
jbulpin@0 327 It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
jbulpin@0 328 restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
jbulpin@0 329 accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you cannot
jbulpin@0 330 use both them and the Library together in an executable that you
jbulpin@0 331 distribute.
jbulpin@0 332
jbulpin@0 333 7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
jbulpin@0 334 Library side-by-side in a single library together with other library
jbulpin@0 335 facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined
jbulpin@0 336 library, provided that the separate distribution of the work based on
jbulpin@0 337 the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise
jbulpin@0 338 permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
jbulpin@0 339
jbulpin@0 340 a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work
jbulpin@0 341 based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
jbulpin@0 342 facilities. This must be distributed under the terms of the
jbulpin@0 343 Sections above.
jbulpin@0 344
jbulpin@0 345 b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact
jbulpin@0 346 that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining
jbulpin@0 347 where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
jbulpin@0 348
jbulpin@0 349 8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute
jbulpin@0 350 the Library except as expressly provided under this License. Any
jbulpin@0 351 attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
jbulpin@0 352 distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your
jbulpin@0 353 rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies,
jbulpin@0 354 or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
jbulpin@0 355 terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
jbulpin@0 356
jbulpin@0 357 9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
jbulpin@0 358 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
jbulpin@0 359 distribute the Library or its derivative works. These actions are
jbulpin@0 360 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
jbulpin@0 361 modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the
jbulpin@0 362 Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
jbulpin@0 363 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
jbulpin@0 364 the Library or works based on it.
jbulpin@0 365
jbulpin@0 366 10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the
jbulpin@0 367 Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
jbulpin@0 368 original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library
jbulpin@0 369 subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
jbulpin@0 370 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
jbulpin@0 371 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with
jbulpin@0 372 this License.
jbulpin@0 373
jbulpin@0 374 11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
jbulpin@0 375 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
jbulpin@0 376 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
jbulpin@0 377 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
jbulpin@0 378 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
jbulpin@0 379 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
jbulpin@0 380 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
jbulpin@0 381 may not distribute the Library at all. For example, if a patent
jbulpin@0 382 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by
jbulpin@0 383 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
jbulpin@0 384 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
jbulpin@0 385 refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.
jbulpin@0 386
jbulpin@0 387 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
jbulpin@0 388 particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply,
jbulpin@0 389 and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
jbulpin@0 390
jbulpin@0 391 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
jbulpin@0 392 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
jbulpin@0 393 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
jbulpin@0 394 integrity of the free software distribution system which is
jbulpin@0 395 implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
jbulpin@0 396 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
jbulpin@0 397 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
jbulpin@0 398 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
jbulpin@0 399 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
jbulpin@0 400 impose that choice.
jbulpin@0 401
jbulpin@0 402 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
jbulpin@0 403 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
jbulpin@0 404
jbulpin@0 405 12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in
jbulpin@0 406 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
jbulpin@0 407 original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add
jbulpin@0 408 an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries,
jbulpin@0 409 so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
jbulpin@0 410 excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if
jbulpin@0 411 written in the body of this License.
jbulpin@0 412
jbulpin@0 413 13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new
jbulpin@0 414 versions of the Lesser General Public License from time to time.
jbulpin@0 415 Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version,
jbulpin@0 416 but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
jbulpin@0 417
jbulpin@0 418 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Library
jbulpin@0 419 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and
jbulpin@0 420 "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and
jbulpin@0 421 conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
jbulpin@0 422 the Free Software Foundation. If the Library does not specify a
jbulpin@0 423 license version number, you may choose any version ever published by
jbulpin@0 424 the Free Software Foundation.
jbulpin@0 425
jbulpin@0 426 14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free
jbulpin@0 427 programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible with these,
jbulpin@0 428 write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is
jbulpin@0 429 copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free
jbulpin@0 430 Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our
jbulpin@0 431 decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status
jbulpin@0 432 of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing
jbulpin@0 433 and reuse of software generally.
jbulpin@0 434
jbulpin@0 435 NO WARRANTY
jbulpin@0 436
jbulpin@0 437 15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO
jbulpin@0 438 WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
jbulpin@0 439 EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
jbulpin@0 440 OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
jbulpin@0 441 KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
jbulpin@0 442 IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
jbulpin@0 443 PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
jbulpin@0 444 LIBRARY IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
jbulpin@0 445 THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
jbulpin@0 446
jbulpin@0 447 16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
jbulpin@0 448 WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
jbulpin@0 449 AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
jbulpin@0 450 FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
jbulpin@0 451 CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
jbulpin@0 452 LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
jbulpin@0 453 RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
jbulpin@0 454 FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF
jbulpin@0 455 SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
jbulpin@0 456 DAMAGES.
jbulpin@0 457
jbulpin@0 458 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
jbulpin@0 459
jbulpin@0 460 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Libraries
jbulpin@0 461
jbulpin@0 462 If you develop a new library, and you want it to be of the greatest
jbulpin@0 463 possible use to the public, we recommend making it free software that
jbulpin@0 464 everyone can redistribute and change. You can do so by permitting
jbulpin@0 465 redistribution under these terms (or, alternatively, under the terms of the
jbulpin@0 466 ordinary General Public License).
jbulpin@0 467
jbulpin@0 468 To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library. It is
jbulpin@0 469 safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
jbulpin@0 470 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the
jbulpin@0 471 "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
jbulpin@0 472
jbulpin@0 473 <one line to give the library's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
jbulpin@0 474 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
jbulpin@0 475
jbulpin@0 476 This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
jbulpin@0 477 modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public
jbulpin@0 478 License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either
jbulpin@0 479 version 2.1 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
jbulpin@0 480
jbulpin@0 481 This library is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
jbulpin@0 482 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
jbulpin@0 483 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU
jbulpin@0 484 Lesser General Public License for more details.
jbulpin@0 485
jbulpin@0 486 You should have received a copy of the GNU Lesser General Public
jbulpin@0 487 License along with this library; if not, write to the Free Software
jbulpin@0 488 Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
jbulpin@0 489
jbulpin@0 490 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
jbulpin@0 491
jbulpin@0 492 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
jbulpin@0 493 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the library, if
jbulpin@0 494 necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
jbulpin@0 495
jbulpin@0 496 Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the
jbulpin@0 497 library `Frob' (a library for tweaking knobs) written by James Random Hacker.
