+GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
+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 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.
+
+END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
+
+How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
+
+If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
+possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free
+software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
+
+To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to
+attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey the
+exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the "copyright"
+line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
+
+ One line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.
+ Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
+
+ This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it
+ under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the
+ Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your
+ option) any later version.
+
+ This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but
+ WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
+ MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU
+ General Public License for more details.
+
+ You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
+ with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
+ 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
+
+Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
+
+If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this when
+it starts in an interactive mode:
+
+ Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author Gnomovision
+ comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'. This is
+ free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain
+ conditions; type `show c' for details.
+
+The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
+parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may be
+called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
+mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
+
+You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
+school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
+necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
+
+ Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
+ `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James
+ Hacker.
+
+ signature of Ty Coon, 1 April 1989
+ Ty Coon, President of Vice
+
+This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
+proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
+consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
+library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General Public
+License instead of this License.
