    20 [This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL.  It also counts
       
    21  as the successor of the GNU Library Public License, version 2, hence
       
    22  the version number 2.1.]

    24                             Preamble
       
    25 
       
    26   The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
       
    27 freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
       
    28 Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change
       
    29 free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.
       
    30 
       
    31   This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some
       
    32 specially designated software packages--typically libraries--of the
       
    33 Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to use it.  You
       
    34 can use it too, but we suggest you first think carefully about whether
       
    35 this license or the ordinary General Public License is the better
       
    36 strategy to use in any particular case, based on the explanations below.
       
    37 
       
    38   When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use,
       
    39 not price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that
       
    40 you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge
       
    41 for this service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get
       
    42 it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of
       
    43 it in new free programs; and that you are informed that you can do
       
    44 these things.
       
    45 
       
    46   To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
       
    47 distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these
       
    48 rights.  These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
       
    49 you if you distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.
       
    50 
       
    51   For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis
       
    52 or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave
       
    53 you.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source
       
    54 code.  If you link other code with the library, you must provide
       
    55 complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them
       
    56 with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling
       
    57 it.  And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
       
    58 
       
    59   We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the
       
    60 library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal
       
    61 permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
       
    62 
       
    63   To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that
       
    64 there is no warranty for the free library.  Also, if the library is
       
    65 modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know
       
    66 that what they have is not the original version, so that the original
       
    67 author's reputation will not be affected by problems that might be
       
    68 introduced by others.
       
    69 
       
    70   Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of
       
    71 any free program.  We wish to make sure that a company cannot
       
    72 effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a
       
    73 restrictive license from a patent holder.  Therefore, we insist that
       
    74 any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be
       
    75 consistent with the full freedom of use specified in this license.
       
    76 
       
    77   Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the
       
    78 ordinary GNU General Public License.  This license, the GNU Lesser
       
    79 General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and
       
    80 is quite different from the ordinary General Public License.  We use
       
    81 this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those
       
    82 libraries into non-free programs.
       
    83 
       
    84   When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using
       
    85 a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a
       
    86 combined work, a derivative of the original library.  The ordinary
       
    87 General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the
       
    88 entire combination fits its criteria of freedom.  The Lesser General
       
    89 Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with
       
    90 the library.
       
    91 
       
    92   We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it
       
    93 does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General
       
    94 Public License.  It also provides other free software developers Less
       
    95 of an advantage over competing non-free programs.  These disadvantages
       
    96 are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many
       
    97 libraries.  However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain
       
    98 special circumstances.
       
    99 
       
   100   For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to
       
   101 encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it becomes
       
   102 a de-facto standard.  To achieve this, non-free programs must be
       
   103 allowed to use the library.  A more frequent case is that a free
       
   104 library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries.  In this
       
   105 case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free
       
   106 software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.
       
   107 
       
   108   In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free
       
   109 programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of
       
   110 free software.  For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in
       
   111 non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU
       
   112 operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating
       
   113 system.
       
   114 
       
   115   Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the
       
   116 users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is
       
   117 linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run
       
   118 that program using a modified version of the Library.
       
   119 
       
   120   The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
       
   121 modification follow.  Pay close attention to the difference between a
       
   122 "work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library".  The
       
   123 former contains code derived from the library, whereas the latter must
       
   124 be combined with the library in order to run.
       
   125 
       
   126                   GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
       
   127    TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
       
   128 
       
   129   0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other
       
   130 program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or
       
   131 other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of
       
   132 this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License").
       
   133 Each licensee is addressed as "you".
       
   134 
       
   135   A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data
       
   136 prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs
       
   137 (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
       
   138 
       
   139   The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work
       
   140 which has been distributed under these terms.  A "work based on the
       
   141 Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under
       
   142 copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a
       
   143 portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
       
   144 straightforwardly into another language.  (Hereinafter, translation is
       
   145 included without limitation in the term "modification".)
       
   146 
       
   147   "Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for
       
   148 making modifications to it.  For a library, complete source code means
       
   149 all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated
       
   150 interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation
       
   151 and installation of the library.
       
   152 
       
   153   Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
       
   154 covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
       
   155 running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from
       
   156 such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based
       
   157 on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for
       
   158 writing it).  Whether that is true depends on what the Library does
       
   159 and what the program that uses the Library does.
       
   160   
       
   161   1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's
       
   162 complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
       
   163 you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
       
   164 appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
       
   165 all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any
       
   166 warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the
       
   167 Library.
       
   168 
       
   169   You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
       
   170 and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a
       
   171 fee.
       
   172 
       
   173   2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion
       
   174 of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and
       
   175 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
       
   176 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
       
   177 
       
   178     a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
       
   179 
       
   180     b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices
       
   181     stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
       
   182 
       
   183     c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no
       
   184     charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
       
   185 
       
   186     d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a
       
   187     table of data to be supplied by an application program that uses
       
   188     the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility
       
   189     is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that,
       
   190     in the event an application does not supply such function or
       
   191     table, the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of
       
   192     its purpose remains meaningful.
       
   193 
       
   194     (For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has
       
   195     a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
       
   196     application.  Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
       
   197     application-supplied function or table used by this function must
       
   198     be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square
       
   199     root function must still compute square roots.)
       
   200 
       
   201 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
       
   202 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library,
       
   203 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
       
   204 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
       
   205 sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
       
   206 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
       
   207 on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
       
   208 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
       
   209 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
       
   210 it.
       
   211 
       
   212 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
       
   213 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
       
   214 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
       
   215 collective works based on the Library.
       
   216 
       
   217 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library
       
   218 with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of
       
   219 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
       
   220 the scope of this License.
       
   221 
       
   222   3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
       
   223 License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library.  To do
       
   224 this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
       
   225 that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
       
   226 instead of to this License.  (If a newer version than version 2 of the
       
   227 ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
       
   228 that version instead if you wish.)  Do not make any other change in
       
   229 these notices.
       
   230 
       
   231   Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for
       
   232 that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all
       
   233 subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
       
   234 
       
   235   This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of
       
   236 the Library into a program that is not a library.
       
   237 
       
   238   4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or
       
   239 derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
       
   240 under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany
       
   241 it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which
       
   242 must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
       
   243 medium customarily used for software interchange.
       
   244 
       
   245   If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy
       
   246 from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
       
   247 source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
       
   248 distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
       
   249 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
       
   250 
       
   251   5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
       
   252 Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or
       
   253 linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library".  Such a
       
   254 work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
       
   255 therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
       
   256 
       
   257   However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library
       
   258 creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it
       
   259 contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the
       
   260 library".  The executable is therefore covered by this License.
       
   261 Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
       
   262 
       
   263   When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file
       
   264 that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a
       
   265 derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.
       
   266 Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be
       
   267 linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library.  The
       
   268 threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
       
   269 
       
   270   If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
       
   271 structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline
       
   272 functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object
       
   273 file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative
       
   274 work.  (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the
       
   275 Library will still fall under Section 6.)
       
   276 
       
   277   Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
       
   278 distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6.
       
   279 Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6,
       
   280 whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
       
   281 
       
   282   6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or
       
   283 link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a
       
   284 work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work
       
   285 under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit
       
   286 modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse
       
   287 engineering for debugging such modifications.
       
   288 
       
   289   You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the
       
   290 Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by
       
   291 this License.  You must supply a copy of this License.  If the work
       
   292 during execution displays copyright notices, you must include the
       
   293 copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference
       
   294 directing the user to the copy of this License.  Also, you must do one
       
   295 of these things:
       
   296 
       
   297     a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding
       
   298     machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever
       
   299     changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under
       
   300     Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable linked
       
   301     with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work that
       
   302     uses the Library", as object code and/or source code, so that the
       
   303     user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified
       
   304     executable containing the modified Library.  (It is understood
       
   305     that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the
       
   306     Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the application
       
   307     to use the modified definitions.)
       
   308 
       
   309     b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
       
   310     Library.  A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time a
       
   311     copy of the library already present on the user's computer system,
       
   312     rather than copying library functions into the executable, and (2)
       
   313     will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if
       
   314     the user installs one, as long as the modified version is
       
   315     interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with.
       
   316 
       
   317     c) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at
       
   318     least three years, to give the same user the materials
       
   319     specified in Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more
       
   320     than the cost of performing this distribution.
       
   321 
       
   322     d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy
       
   323     from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the above
       
   324     specified materials from the same place.
       
   325 
       
   326     e) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these
       
   327     materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
       
   328 
       
   329   For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the
       
   330 Library" must include any data and utility programs needed for
       
   331 reproducing the executable from it.  However, as a special exception,
       
   332 the materials to be distributed need not include anything that is
       
   333 normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
       
   334 components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on
       
   335 which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
       
   336 the executable.
       
   337 
       
   338   It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
       
   339 restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
       
   340 accompany the operating system.  Such a contradiction means you cannot
       
   341 use both them and the Library together in an executable that you
       
   342 distribute.
       
   343 
       
   344   7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
       
   345 Library side-by-side in a single library together with other library
       
   346 facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined
       
   347 library, provided that the separate distribution of the work based on
       
   348 the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise
       
   349 permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
       
   350 
       
   351     a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work
       
   352     based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
       
   353     facilities.  This must be distributed under the terms of the
       
   354     Sections above.
       
   355 
       
   356     b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact
       
   357     that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining
       
   358     where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
       
   359 
       
   360   8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute
       
   361 the Library except as expressly provided under this License.  Any
       
   362 attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
       
   363 distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your
       
   364 rights under this License.  However, parties who have received copies,
       
   365 or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
       
   366 terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
       
   367 
       
   368   9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
       
   369 signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
       
   370 distribute the Library or its derivative works.  These actions are
       
   371 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
       
   372 modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the
       
   373 Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
       
   374 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
       
   375 the Library or works based on it.
       
   376 
       
   377   10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the
       
   378 Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
       
   379 original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library
       
   380 subject to these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
       
   381 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
       
   382 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with
       
   383 this License.
       
   384 
       
   385   11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
       
   386 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
       
   387 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
       
   388 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
       
   389 excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
       
   390 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
       
   391 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
       
   392 may not distribute the Library at all.  For example, if a patent
       
   393 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by
       
   394 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
       
   395 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
       
   396 refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.
       
   397 
       
   398 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
       
   399 particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply,
       
   400 and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
       
   401 
       
   402 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
       
   403 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
       
   404 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
       
   405 integrity of the free software distribution system which is
       
   406 implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
       
   407 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
       
   408 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
       
   409 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
       
   410 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
       
   411 impose that choice.
       
   412 
       
   413 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
       
   414 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
       
   415 
       
   416   12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in
       
   417 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
       
   418 original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add
       
   419 an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries,
       
   420 so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
       
   421 excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if
       
   422 written in the body of this License.
       
   423 
       
   424   13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new
       
   425 versions of the Lesser General Public License from time to time.
       
   426 Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version,
       
   427 but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
       
   428 
       
   429 Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Library
       
   430 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and
       
   431 "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and
       
   432 conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
       
   433 the Free Software Foundation.  If the Library does not specify a
       
   434 license version number, you may choose any version ever published by
       
   435 the Free Software Foundation.
       
   436 
       
   437   14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free
       
   438 programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible with these,
       
   439 write to the author to ask for permission.  For software which is
       
   440 copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free
       
   441 Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this.  Our
       
   442 decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status
       
   443 of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing
       
   444 and reuse of software generally.
       
   445 
       
   446                             NO WARRANTY
       
   447 
       
   448   15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO
       
   449 WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
       
   450 EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
       
   451 OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
       
   452 KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
       
   453 IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
       
   454 PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
       
   455 LIBRARY IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
       
   456 THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
       
   457 
       
   458   16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
       
   459 WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
       
   460 AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
       
   461 FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
       
   462 CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
       
   463 LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
       
   464 RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
       
   465 FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF
       
   466 SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
       
   467 DAMAGES.
       
   468 
       
   469                      END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
       
   470 
       
   471            How to Apply These Terms to Your New Libraries
       
   472 
       
   473   If you develop a new library, and you want it to be of the greatest
       
   474 possible use to the public, we recommend making it free software that
       
   475 everyone can redistribute and change.  You can do so by permitting
       
   476 redistribution under these terms (or, alternatively, under the terms of the
       
   477 ordinary General Public License).
       
   478 
       
   479   To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library.  It is
       
   480 safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
       
   481 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the
       
   482 "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
       
   483 
       
   484     <one line to give the library's name and a brief idea of what it does.>

   486 
       
   487     This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
       
   488     modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public
       
   489     License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either
       
   490     version 2.1 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
       
   491 
       
   492     This library is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
       
   493     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of

   496 
       
   497     You should have received a copy of the GNU Lesser General Public
       
   498     License along with this library; if not, write to the Free Software

   501 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
       
   502 
       
   503 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
       
   504 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the library, if
       
   505 necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
