2 | Version 2.1, February 1999\r | |

3 | \r | |

4 | Copyright (C) 1991, 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.\r | |

5 | 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA\r | |

6 | Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies\r | |

7 | of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.\r | |

8 | \r | |

9 | [This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also counts\r | |

10 | as the successor of the GNU Library Public License, version 2, hence\r | |

11 | the version number 2.1.]\r | |

12 | \r | |

13 | Preamble\r | |

14 | \r | |

15 | The licenses for most software are designed to take away your\r | |

16 | freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public\r | |

17 | Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change\r | |

18 | free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.\r | |

19 | \r | |

20 | This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some\r | |

21 | specially designated software packages--typically libraries--of the\r | |

22 | Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to use it. You\r | |

23 | can use it too, but we suggest you first think carefully about whether\r | |

24 | this license or the ordinary General Public License is the better\r | |

25 | strategy to use in any particular case, based on the explanations below.\r | |

26 | \r | |

27 | When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use,\r | |

28 | not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that\r | |

29 | you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge\r | |

30 | for this service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get\r | |

31 | it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of\r | |

32 | it in new free programs; and that you are informed that you can do\r | |

33 | these things.\r | |

34 | \r | |

35 | To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid\r | |

36 | distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these\r | |

37 | rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for\r | |

38 | you if you distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.\r | |

39 | \r | |

40 | For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis\r | |

41 | or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave\r | |

42 | you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source\r | |

43 | code. If you link other code with the library, you must provide\r | |

44 | complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them\r | |

45 | with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling\r | |

46 | it. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.\r | |

47 | \r | |

48 | We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the\r | |

49 | library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal\r | |

50 | permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.\r | |

51 | \r | |

52 | To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that\r | |

53 | there is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the library is\r | |

54 | modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know\r | |

55 | that what they have is not the original version, so that the original\r | |

56 | author's reputation will not be affected by problems that might be\r | |

57 | introduced by others.\r | |

58 | \r | |

59 | Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of\r | |

60 | any free program. We wish to make sure that a company cannot\r | |

61 | effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a\r | |

62 | restrictive license from a patent holder. Therefore, we insist that\r | |

63 | any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be\r | |

64 | consistent with the full freedom of use specified in this license.\r | |

65 | \r | |

66 | Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the\r | |

67 | ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU Lesser\r | |

68 | General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and\r | |

69 | is quite different from the ordinary General Public License. We use\r | |

70 | this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those\r | |

71 | libraries into non-free programs.\r | |

72 | \r | |

73 | When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using\r | |

74 | a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a\r | |

75 | combined work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary\r | |

76 | General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the\r | |

77 | entire combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser General\r | |

78 | Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with\r | |

79 | the library.\r | |

80 | \r | |

81 | We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it\r | |

82 | does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General\r | |

83 | Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less\r | |

84 | of an advantage over competing non-free programs. These disadvantages\r | |

85 | are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many\r | |

86 | libraries. However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain\r | |

87 | special circumstances.\r | |

88 | \r | |

89 | For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to\r | |

90 | encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it becomes\r | |

91 | a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must be\r | |

92 | allowed to use the library. A more frequent case is that a free\r | |

93 | library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. In this\r | |

94 | case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free\r | |

95 | software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.\r | |

96 | \r | |

97 | In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free\r | |

98 | programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of\r | |

99 | free software. For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in\r | |

100 | non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU\r | |

101 | operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating\r | |

102 | system.\r | |

103 | \r | |

104 | Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the\r | |

105 | users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is\r | |

106 | linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run\r | |

107 | that program using a modified version of the Library.\r | |

108 | \r | |

109 | The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and\r | |

110 | modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference between a\r | |

111 | "work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library". The\r | |

112 | former contains code derived from the library, whereas the latter must\r | |

113 | be combined with the library in order to run.\r | |

114 | \r | |

115 | GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE\r | |

116 | TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION\r | |

117 | \r | |

118 | 0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other\r | |

119 | program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or\r | |

120 | other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of\r | |

121 | this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License").\r | |

122 | Each licensee is addressed as "you".\r | |

123 | \r | |

124 | A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data\r | |

125 | prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs\r | |

126 | (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.\r | |

127 | \r | |

128 | The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work\r | |

129 | which has been distributed under these terms. A "work based on the\r | |

130 | Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under\r | |

131 | copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a\r | |

132 | portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated\r | |

133 | straightforwardly into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is\r | |

134 | included without limitation in the term "modification".)\r | |

135 | \r | |

136 | "Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for\r | |

137 | making modifications to it. For a library, complete source code means\r | |

138 | all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated\r | |

139 | interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation\r | |

140 | and installation of the library.\r | |

141 | \r | |

142 | Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not\r | |

143 | covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of\r | |

144 | running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from\r | |

145 | such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based\r | |

146 | on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for\r | |

147 | writing it). Whether that is true depends on what the Library does\r | |

148 | and what the program that uses the Library does.\r | |

149 | \r | |

150 | 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's\r | |

151 | complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that\r | |

152 | you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an\r | |

153 | appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact\r | |

154 | all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any\r | |

155 | warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the\r | |

156 | Library.\r | |

157 | \r | |

158 | You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,\r | |

159 | and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a\r | |

160 | fee.\r | |

161 | \r | |

162 | 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion\r | |

163 | of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and\r | |

164 | distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1\r | |

165 | above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:\r | |

166 | \r | |

167 | a) The modified work must itself be a software library.\r | |

168 | \r | |

169 | b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices\r | |

170 | stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.\r | |

171 | \r | |

172 | c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no\r | |

173 | charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.\r | |

174 | \r | |

175 | d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a\r | |

176 | table of data to be supplied by an application program that uses\r | |

177 | the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility\r | |

178 | is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that,\r | |

179 | in the event an application does not supply such function or\r | |

180 | table, the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of\r | |

181 | its purpose remains meaningful.\r | |

182 | \r | |

183 | (For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has\r | |

184 | a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the\r | |

185 | application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any\r | |

186 | application-supplied function or table used by this function must\r | |

187 | be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square\r | |

188 | root function must still compute square roots.)\r | |

189 | \r | |

190 | These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If\r | |

191 | identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library,\r | |

192 | and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in\r | |

193 | themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those\r | |

194 | sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you\r | |

195 | distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based\r | |

196 | on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of\r | |

197 | this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the\r | |

198 | entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote\r | |

199 | it.\r | |

200 | \r | |

201 | Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest\r | |

202 | your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to\r | |

203 | exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or\r | |

204 | collective works based on the Library.\r | |

205 | \r | |

206 | In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library\r | |

207 | with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of\r | |

208 | a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under\r | |

209 | the scope of this License.\r | |

210 | \r | |

211 | 3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public\r | |

212 | License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library. To do\r | |

213 | this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so\r | |

214 | that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,\r | |

215 | instead of to this License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the\r | |

216 | ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify\r | |

217 | that version instead if you wish.) Do not make any other change in\r | |

218 | these notices.\r | |

219 | \r | |

220 | Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for\r | |

221 | that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all\r | |

222 | subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.\r | |

223 | \r | |

224 | This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of\r | |

225 | the Library into a program that is not a library.\r | |

226 | \r | |

227 | 4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or\r | |

228 | derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form\r | |

229 | under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany\r | |

230 | it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which\r | |

231 | must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a\r | |

232 | medium customarily used for software interchange.\r | |

233 | \r | |

234 | If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy\r | |

235 | from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the\r | |

236 | source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to\r | |

237 | distribute the source code, even though third parties are not\r | |

238 | compelled to copy the source along with the object code.\r | |

239 | \r | |

240 | 5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the\r | |

241 | Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or\r | |

242 | linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library". Such a\r | |

243 | work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and\r | |

244 | therefore falls outside the scope of this License.\r | |

245 | \r | |

246 | However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library\r | |

247 | creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it\r | |

248 | contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the\r | |

249 | library". The executable is therefore covered by this License.\r | |

250 | Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.\r | |

251 | \r | |

252 | When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file\r | |

253 | that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a\r | |

254 | derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.\r | |

255 | Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be\r | |

256 | linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library. The\r | |

257 | threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.\r | |

258 | \r | |

259 | If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data\r | |

260 | structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline\r | |

261 | functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object\r | |

262 | file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative\r | |

263 | work. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the\r | |

264 | Library will still fall under Section 6.)\r | |

265 | \r | |

266 | Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may\r | |

267 | distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6.\r | |

268 | Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6,\r | |

269 | whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.\r | |

270 | \r | |

271 | 6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or\r | |

272 | link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a\r | |

273 | work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work\r | |

274 | under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit\r | |

275 | modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse\r | |

276 | engineering for debugging such modifications.\r | |

277 | \r | |

278 | You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the\r | |

279 | Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by\r | |

280 | this License. You must supply a copy of this License. If the work\r | |

281 | during execution displays copyright notices, you must include the\r | |

282 | copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference\r | |

283 | directing the user to the copy of this License. Also, you must do one\r | |

284 | of these things:\r | |

285 | \r | |

286 | a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding\r | |

287 | machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever\r | |

288 | changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under\r | |

289 | Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable linked\r | |

290 | with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work that\r | |

291 | uses the Library", as object code and/or source code, so that the\r | |

292 | user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified\r | |

293 | executable containing the modified Library. (It is understood\r | |

294 | that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the\r | |

295 | Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the application\r | |

296 | to use the modified definitions.)\r | |

297 | \r | |

298 | b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the\r | |

299 | Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time a\r | |

300 | copy of the library already present on the user's computer system,\r | |

301 | rather than copying library functions into the executable, and (2)\r | |

302 | will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if\r | |

303 | the user installs one, as long as the modified version is\r | |

304 | interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with.\r | |

305 | \r | |

306 | c) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at\r | |

307 | least three years, to give the same user the materials\r | |

308 | specified in Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more\r | |

309 | than the cost of performing this distribution.\r | |

310 | \r | |

311 | d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy\r | |

312 | from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the above\r | |

313 | specified materials from the same place.\r | |

314 | \r | |

315 | e) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these\r | |

316 | materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.\r | |

317 | \r | |

318 | For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the\r | |

319 | Library" must include any data and utility programs needed for\r | |

320 | reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special exception,\r | |

321 | the materials to be distributed need not include anything that is\r | |

322 | normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major\r | |

323 | components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on\r | |

324 | which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies\r | |

325 | the executable.\r | |

326 | \r | |

327 | It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license\r | |

328 | restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally\r | |

329 | accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you cannot\r | |

330 | use both them and the Library together in an executable that you\r | |

331 | distribute.\r | |

332 | \r | |

333 | 7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the\r | |

334 | Library side-by-side in a single library together with other library\r | |

335 | facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined\r | |

336 | library, provided that the separate distribution of the work based on\r | |

337 | the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise\r | |

338 | permitted, and provided that you do these two things:\r | |

339 | \r | |

340 | a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work\r | |

341 | based on the Library, uncombined with any other library\r | |

342 | facilities. This must be distributed under the terms of the\r | |

343 | Sections above.\r | |

344 | \r | |

345 | b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact\r | |

346 | that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining\r | |

347 | where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.\r | |

348 | \r | |

349 | 8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute\r | |

350 | the Library except as expressly provided under this License. Any\r | |

351 | attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or\r | |

352 | distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your\r | |

353 | rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies,\r | |

354 | or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses\r | |

355 | terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.\r | |

356 | \r | |

357 | 9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not\r | |

358 | signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or\r | |

359 | distribute the Library or its derivative works. These actions are\r | |

360 | prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by\r | |

361 | modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the\r | |

362 | Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and\r | |

363 | all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying\r | |

364 | the Library or works based on it.\r | |

365 | \r | |

366 | 10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the\r | |

367 | Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the\r | |

368 | original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library\r | |

369 | subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further\r | |

370 | restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.\r | |

371 | You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with\r | |

372 | this License.\r | |

373 | \r | |

374 | 11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent\r | |

375 | infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),\r | |

376 | conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or\r | |

377 | otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not\r | |

378 | excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot\r | |

379 | distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this\r | |

380 | License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you\r | |

381 | may not distribute the Library at all. For example, if a patent\r | |

382 | license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by\r | |

383 | all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then\r | |

384 | the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to\r | |

385 | refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.\r | |

386 | \r | |

387 | If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any\r | |

388 | particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply,\r | |

389 | and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.\r | |

390 | \r | |

391 | It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any\r | |

392 | patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any\r | |

393 | such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the\r | |

394 | integrity of the free software distribution system which is\r | |

395 | implemented by public license practices. Many people have made\r | |

396 | generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed\r | |

397 | through that system in reliance on consistent application of that\r | |

398 | system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing\r | |

399 | to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot\r | |

400 | impose that choice.\r | |

401 | \r | |

402 | This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to\r | |

403 | be a consequence of the rest of this License.\r | |

404 | \r | |

405 | 12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in\r | |

406 | certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the\r | |

407 | original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add\r | |

408 | an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries,\r | |

409 | so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus\r | |

410 | excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if\r | |

411 | written in the body of this License.\r | |

412 | \r | |

413 | 13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new\r | |

414 | versions of the Lesser General Public License from time to time.\r | |

415 | Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version,\r | |

416 | but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.\r | |

417 | \r | |

418 | Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Library\r | |

419 | specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and\r | |

420 | "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and\r | |

421 | conditions either of that version or of any later version published by\r | |

422 | the Free Software Foundation. If the Library does not specify a\r | |

423 | license version number, you may choose any version ever published by\r | |

424 | the Free Software Foundation.\r | |

425 | \r | |

426 | 14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free\r | |

427 | programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible with these,\r | |

428 | write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is\r | |

429 | copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free\r | |

430 | Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our\r | |

431 | decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status\r | |

432 | of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing\r | |

433 | and reuse of software generally.\r | |

434 | \r | |

435 | NO WARRANTY\r | |

436 | \r | |

437 | 15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO\r | |

438 | WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.\r | |

439 | EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR\r | |

440 | OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY\r | |

441 | KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE\r | |

442 | IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR\r | |

443 | PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE\r | |

444 | LIBRARY IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME\r | |

445 | THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.\r | |

446 | \r | |

447 | 16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN\r | |

448 | WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY\r | |

449 | AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU\r | |

450 | FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR\r | |

451 | CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE\r | |

452 | LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING\r | |

453 | RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A\r | |

454 | FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF\r | |

455 | SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH\r | |

456 | DAMAGES.\r | |

457 | \r | |

458 | END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS\r | |

459 | \r | |

460 | How to Apply These Terms to Your New Libraries\r | |

461 | \r | |

462 | If you develop a new library, and you want it to be of the greatest\r | |

463 | possible use to the public, we recommend making it free software that\r | |

464 | everyone can redistribute and change. You can do so by permitting\r | |

465 | redistribution under these terms (or, alternatively, under the terms of the\r | |

466 | ordinary General Public License).\r | |

467 | \r | |

468 | To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library. It is\r | |

469 | safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively\r | |

470 | convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the\r | |

471 | "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.\r | |

472 | \r | |

473 | <one line to give the library's name and a brief idea of what it does.>\r | |

474 | Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>\r | |

475 | \r | |

476 | This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or\r | |

477 | modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public\r | |

478 | License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either\r | |

479 | version 2.1 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.\r | |

480 | \r | |

481 | This library is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,\r | |

482 | but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of\r | |

483 | MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU\r | |

484 | Lesser General Public License for more details.\r | |

485 | \r | |

486 | You should have received a copy of the GNU Lesser General Public\r | |

487 | License along with this library; if not, write to the Free Software\r | |

488 | Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA\r | |

489 | \r | |

490 | Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.\r | |

491 | \r | |

492 | You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your\r | |

493 | school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the library, if\r | |

494 | necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:\r | |

495 | \r | |

496 | Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the\r | |

497 | library `Frob' (a library for tweaking knobs) written by James Random Hacker.\r | |
