6 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
7 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

                            Preamble
10 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
11 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
12 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
13 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
14 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
15 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
16 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
17 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
18 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
19 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
your programs, too.
20 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
21 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
22 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
23 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
24 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
25 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
26 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
27 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
28 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
29 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
30 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
31 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
32 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
33 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
34 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
35 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
36 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
37 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
rights.
38 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
39 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
40 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
41 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
distribute and/or modify the software.
42 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
43 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
44 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
45 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
46 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
47 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
48 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
authors' reputations.
49 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
50 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
51 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
52 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
53 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
54 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
55 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
56 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
57 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
modification follow.
58 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
59 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
60 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
61 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
62 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
63 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
64 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
65 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
66 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
67 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
68 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
69 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
70 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
71 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
72 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
73 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
74 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
75 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
76 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
77 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
78 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
79 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
80 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
81 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
82 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
83 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
84 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
85 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
along with the Program.
86 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
87 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
88 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
89 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
90 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
91 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
92 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
93 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
94 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
95 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
96 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
97 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
98 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
99 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
100 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
101 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    parties under the terms of this License.
102 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
103 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
104 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
105 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
106 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
107 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
108 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
109 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
110 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
111 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
112 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
113 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
114 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
115 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
116 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
117 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
118 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
119 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
120 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
121 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
122 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
123 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
124 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
125 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
126 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
127 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
collective works based on the Program.
128 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
129 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
130 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
131 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
132 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
the scope of this License.
133 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
134 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
135 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
136 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
137 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
138 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
139 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
140 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
141 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
142 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
143 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
144 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
145 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
146 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
147 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    customarily used for software interchange; or,
148 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
149 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
150 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
151 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
152 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    received the program in object code or executable form with such
153 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
154 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
155 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
156 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
157 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
158 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
159 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
160 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
161 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
162 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
163 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
164 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
itself accompanies the executable.
165 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
166 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
167 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
168 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
169 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
170 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
171 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
172 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
173 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
174 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
175 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
176 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
177 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
178 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
parties remain in full compliance.
179 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
180 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
181 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
182 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
183 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
184 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
185 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
186 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
187 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
the Program or works based on it.
188 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
189 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
190 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
191 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
192 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
193 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
194 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
195 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
this License.
196 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
197 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
198 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
199 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
200 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
201 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
202 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
203 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
204 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
205 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
206 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
207 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
208 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
209 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
210 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
211 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
212 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
213 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
circumstances.
214 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
215 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
216 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
217 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
218 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
219 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
220 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
221 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
222 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
223 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
224 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
impose that choice.
225 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
226 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
227 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
228 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
229 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
230 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
231 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
232 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
233 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
234 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
235 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
236 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
237 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
238 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
239 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
240 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
address new problems or concerns.
241 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
242 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
243 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
244 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
245 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
246 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
247 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
248 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Foundation.
249 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
250 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
251 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
252 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
253 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
254 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
255 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
256 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
257 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
258 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
                            NO WARRANTY
259 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
260 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
261 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
262 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
263 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
264 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
265 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos

            How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
283 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
284 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
285 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
286 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
287 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
288 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
289 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
290 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
291 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
292 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
293 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
311 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
312 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
313 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
when it starts in an interactive mode:
314 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
315 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
316 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
317 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
318 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
319 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
320 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
321 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
322 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
323 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
324 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
325 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
326 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
327 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
336 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos

337 b873aac3 Constantinos Venetsanopoulos
consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the

library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
