     69[This is the first released version of the library GPL.  It is
     70 numbered 2 because it goes with version 2 of the ordinary GPL.]
     71
     72                            Preamble
     73
     74  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
     75freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
     76Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change
     77free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.
     78
     79  This license, the Library General Public License, applies to some
     80specially designated Free Software Foundation software, and to any
     81other libraries whose authors decide to use it.  You can use it for
     82your libraries, too.
     83
     84  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
     85price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
     86have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
     87this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
     88if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
     89in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
     90
     91  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
     92anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
     93These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if
     94you distribute copies of the library, or if you modify it.
     95
     96  For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis
     97or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave
     98you.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source
     99code.  If you link a program with the library, you must provide
     100complete object files to the recipients so that they can relink them
     101with the library, after making changes to the library and recompiling
     102it.  And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
     103
     104  Our method of protecting your rights has two steps: (1) copyright
     105the library, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
     106permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
     107
     108  Also, for each distributor's protection, we want to make certain
     109that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
     110library.  If the library is modified by someone else and passed on, we
     111want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original
     112version, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on
     113the original authors' reputations.
     114
     115
     116  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
     117patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that companies distributing free
     118software will individually obtain patent licenses, thus in effect
     119transforming the program into proprietary software.  To prevent this,
     120we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's
     121free use or not licensed at all.
     122
     123  Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the ordinary
     124GNU General Public License, which was designed for utility programs.  This
     125license, the GNU Library General Public License, applies to certain
     126designated libraries.  This license is quite different from the ordinary
     127one; be sure to read it in full, and don't assume that anything in it is
     128the same as in the ordinary license.
     129
     130  The reason we have a separate public license for some libraries is that
     131they blur the distinction we usually make between modifying or adding to a
     132program and simply using it.  Linking a program with a library, without
     133changing the library, is in some sense simply using the library, and is
     134analogous to running a utility program or application program.  However, in
     135a textual and legal sense, the linked executable is a combined work, a
     136derivative of the original library, and the ordinary General Public License
     137treats it as such.
     138
     139  Because of this blurred distinction, using the ordinary General
     140Public License for libraries did not effectively promote software
     141sharing, because most developers did not use the libraries.  We
     142concluded that weaker conditions might promote sharing better.
     143
     144  However, unrestricted linking of non-free programs would deprive the
     145users of those programs of all benefit from the free status of the
     146libraries themselves.  This Library General Public License is intended to
     147permit developers of non-free programs to use free libraries, while
     148preserving your freedom as a user of such programs to change the free
     149libraries that are incorporated in them.  (We have not seen how to achieve
     150this as regards changes in header files, but we have achieved it as regards
     151changes in the actual functions of the Library.)  The hope is that this
     152will lead to faster development of free libraries.
     153
     154  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
     155modification follow.  Pay close attention to the difference between a
     156"work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library".  The
     157former contains code derived from the library, while the latter only
     158works together with the library.
     159
     160  Note that it is possible for a library to be covered by the ordinary
     161General Public License rather than by this special one.
     162
     163
     164                  GNU LIBRARY GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
     165   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
     166
     167  0. This License Agreement applies to any software library which
     168contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or other authorized
     169party saying it may be distributed under the terms of this Library
     170General Public License (also called "this License").  Each licensee is
     171addressed as "you".
     172
     173  A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data
     174prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs
     175(which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
     176
     177  The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work
     178which has been distributed under these terms.  A "work based on the
     179Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under
     180copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a
     181portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
     182straightforwardly into another language.  (Hereinafter, translation is
     183included without limitation in the term "modification".)
     184
     185  "Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for
     186making modifications to it.  For a library, complete source code means
     187all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated
     188interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation
     189and installation of the library.
     190
     191  Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
     192covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
     193running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from
     194such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based
     195on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for
     196writing it).  Whether that is true depends on what the Library does
     197and what the program that uses the Library does.
     198 
     199  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's
     200complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
     201you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
     202appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
     203all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any
     204warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the
     205Library.
     206
     207  You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
     208and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a
     209fee.
     210
     211
     212  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion
     213of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and
     214distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
     215above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
     216
     217    a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
     218
     219    b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices
     220    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
     221
     222    c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no
     223    charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
     224
     225    d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a
     226    table of data to be supplied by an application program that uses
     227    the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility
     228    is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that,
     229    in the event an application does not supply such function or
     230    table, the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of
     231    its purpose remains meaningful.
     232
     233    (For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has
     234    a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
     235    application.  Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
     236    application-supplied function or table used by this function must
     237    be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square
     238    root function must still compute square roots.)
     239
     240These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
     241identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library,
     242and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
     243themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
     244sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
     245distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
     246on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
     247this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
     248entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
     249it.
     250
     251Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
     252your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
     253exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
     254collective works based on the Library.
     255
     256In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library
     257with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of
     258a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
     259the scope of this License.
     260
     261  3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
     262License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library.  To do
     263this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
     264that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
     265instead of to this License.  (If a newer version than version 2 of the
     266ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
     267that version instead if you wish.)  Do not make any other change in
     268these notices.
     269
     270
     271  Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for
     272that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all
     273subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
     274
     275  This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of
     276the Library into a program that is not a library.
     277
     278  4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or
     279derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
     280under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany
     281it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which
     282must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
     283medium customarily used for software interchange.
     284
     285  If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy
     286from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
     287source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
     288distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
     289compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
     290
     291  5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
     292Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or
     293linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library".  Such a
     294work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
     295therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
     296
     297  However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library
     298creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it
     299contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the
     300library".  The executable is therefore covered by this License.
     301Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
     302
     303  When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file
     304that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a
     305derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.
     306Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be
     307linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library.  The
     308threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
     309
     310  If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
     311structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline
     312functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object
     313file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative
     314work.  (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the
     315Library will still fall under Section 6.)
     316
     317  Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
     318distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6.
     319Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6,
     320whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
     321
     322
     323  6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also compile or
     324link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a
     325work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work
     326under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit
     327modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse
     328engineering for debugging such modifications.
     329
     330  You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the
     331Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by
     332this License.  You must supply a copy of this License.  If the work
     333during execution displays copyright notices, you must include the
     334copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference
     335directing the user to the copy of this License.  Also, you must do one
     336of these things:
     337
     338    a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding
     339    machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever
     340    changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under
     341    Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable linked
     342    with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work that
     343    uses the Library", as object code and/or source code, so that the
     344    user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified
     345    executable containing the modified Library.  (It is understood
     346    that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the
     347    Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the application
     348    to use the modified definitions.)
     349
     350    b) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at
     351    least three years, to give the same user the materials
     352    specified in Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more
     353    than the cost of performing this distribution.
     354
     355    c) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy
     356    from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the above
     357    specified materials from the same place.
     358
     359    d) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these
     360    materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
     361
     362  For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the
     363Library" must include any data and utility programs needed for
     364reproducing the executable from it.  However, as a special exception,
     365the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally
     366distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
     367components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on
     368which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
     369the executable.
     370
     371  It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
     372restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
     373accompany the operating system.  Such a contradiction means you cannot
     374use both them and the Library together in an executable that you
     375distribute.
     376
     377
     378  7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
     379Library side-by-side in a single library together with other library
     380facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined
     381library, provided that the separate distribution of the work based on
     382the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise
     383permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
     384
     385    a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work
     386    based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
     387    facilities.  This must be distributed under the terms of the
     388    Sections above.
     389
     390    b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact
     391    that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining
     392    where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
     393
     394  8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute
     395the Library except as expressly provided under this License.  Any
     396attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
     397distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your
     398rights under this License.  However, parties who have received copies,
     399or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
     400terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
     401
     402  9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
     403signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
     404distribute the Library or its derivative works.  These actions are
     405prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
     406modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the
     407Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
     408all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
     409the Library or works based on it.
     410
     411  10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the
     412Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
     413original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library
     414subject to these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
     415restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
     416You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
     417this License.
     418
     419
     420  11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
     421infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
     422conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
     423otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
     424excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
     425distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
     426License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
     427may not distribute the Library at all.  For example, if a patent
     428license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by
     429all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
     430the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
     431refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.
     432
     433If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
     434particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply,
     435and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
     436
     437It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
     438patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
     439such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
     440integrity of the free software distribution system which is
     441implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
     442generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
     443through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
     444system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
     445to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
     446impose that choice.
     447
     448This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
     449be a consequence of the rest of this License.
     450
     451  12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in
     452certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
     453original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add
     454an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries,
     455so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
     456excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if
     457written in the body of this License.
     458
     459  13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new
     460versions of the Library General Public License from time to time.
     461Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version,
     462but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
     463
     464Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Library
     465specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and
     466"any later version", you have the option of following the terms and
     467conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
     468the Free Software Foundation.  If the Library does not specify a
     469license version number, you may choose any version ever published by
     470the Free Software Foundation.
     471
     472
     473  14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free
     474programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible with these,
     475write to the author to ask for permission.  For software which is
     476copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free
     477Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this.  Our
     478decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status
     479of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing
     480and reuse of software generally.
     481
     482                            NO WARRANTY
     483
     484  15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO
     485WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
     486EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
     487OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
     488KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
     489IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
     490PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
     491LIBRARY IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
     492THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
     493
     494  16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
     495WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
     496AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
     497FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
     498CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
     499LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
     500RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
     501FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF
     502SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
     503DAMAGES.
     504
     505                     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
     506
     507
     508           How to Apply These Terms to Your New Libraries
     509
     510  If you develop a new library, and you want it to be of the greatest
     511possible use to the public, we recommend making it free software that
     512everyone can redistribute and change.  You can do so by permitting
     513redistribution under these terms (or, alternatively, under the terms of the
     514ordinary General Public License).
     515
     516  To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library.  It is
     517safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
     518convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the
     519"copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
     520
     521    <one line to give the library's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
     522    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
     523
     524    This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
     525    modify it under the terms of the GNU Library General Public
     526    License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either
     527    version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
     528
     529    This library is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
     530    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
     531    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the GNU
     532    Library General Public License for more details.
     533
     534    You should have received a copy of the GNU Library General Public
     535    License along with this library; if not, write to the Free Software
     536    Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston MA  02110-1301 USA
     537
     538Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
     539
     540You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
     541school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the library, if
     542necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
     543
     544  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the
     545  library `Frob' (a library for tweaking knobs) written by James Random Hacker.
     546
     547  <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1990
     548  Ty Coon, President of Vice
     549
     550That's all there is to it!
