 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies 
 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
 
 Preamble
 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 programs, too.
 
 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 authors' reputations.
 
 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 
 modification follow.
 
 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
 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 Program.
 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 executable.
 
 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 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. 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 Software Foundation.
 
 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.
 
 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.
