Version 2, June 1991

Copyright (C) 1989, 1991

Free Software Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth

Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim

copies of this license document, but changing it is not



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


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.




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


(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


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


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


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
