address@hidden The GNU General Public License.
address@hidden Version 3, 29 June 2007
address@hidden This file is intended to be included within another document,
address@hidden hence no sectioning command or @node.  
-Copyright @copyright{} 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 
-Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
-license document, but changing it is not allowed.
address@hidden display
address@hidden Preamble
-The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
-software and other kinds of works.
-The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
-to take away your freedom to share and change the works.  By contrast,
-the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom
-to share and change all versions of a program---to make sure it remains
-free software for all its users.  We, the Free Software Foundation,
-use the GNU General Public License for most of our software; it
-applies also to any other work released this way by its authors.  You
-can apply it to your programs, too.
-When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
-price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
-have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
-them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
-want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
-free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
-To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
-these rights or asking you to surrender the rights.  Therefore, you
-have certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the
-software, or if you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom
-of others.
-For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
-gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
-freedoms that you received.  You must make sure that they, too,
-receive or can get the source code.  And you must show them these
-terms so they know their rights.
-Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
-(1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
-giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
-For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
-that there is no warranty for this free software.  For both users' and
-authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
-changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
-authors of previous versions.
-Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
-modified versions of the software inside them, although the
-manufacturer can do so.  This is fundamentally incompatible with the
-aim of protecting users' freedom to change the software.  The
-systematic pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for
-individuals to use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable.
-Therefore, we have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the
-practice for those products.  If such problems arise substantially in
-other domains, we stand ready to extend this provision to those
-domains in future versions of the GPL, as needed to protect the
-freedom of users.
-Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
-States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
-software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish
-to avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program
-could make it effectively proprietary.  To prevent this, the GPL
-assures that patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
-The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
-modification follow.

address@hidden Definitions.
-``This License'' refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
-``Copyright'' also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds
-of works, such as semiconductor masks.
-``The Program'' refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
-License.  Each licensee is addressed as ``you''.  ``Licensees'' and
-``recipients'' may be individuals or organizations.
-To ``modify'' a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
-in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of
-an exact copy.  The resulting work is called a ``modified version'' of
-the earlier work or a work ``based on'' the earlier work.
-A ``covered work'' means either the unmodified Program or a work based
-on the Program.
-To ``propagate'' a work means to do anything with it that, without
-permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
-infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
-computer or modifying a private copy.  Propagation includes copying,
-distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
-public, and in some countries other activities as well.
-To ``convey'' a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
-parties to make or receive copies.  Mere interaction with a user
-through a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not
-An interactive user interface displays ``Appropriate Legal Notices'' to
-the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
-feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
-tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
-extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
-work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License.  If
-the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
-menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
address@hidden Source Code.
-The ``source code'' for a work means the preferred form of the work for
-making modifications to it.  ``Object code'' means any non-source form
-of a work.
-A ``Standard Interface'' means an interface that either is an official
-standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
-interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
-is widely used among developers working in that language.
-The ``System Libraries'' of an executable work include anything, other
-than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
-packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
-Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
-Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
-implementation is available to the public in source code form.  A
-``Major Component'', in this context, means a major essential component
-(kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
-(if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
-produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
-The ``Corresponding Source'' for a work in object code form means all
-the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
-work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
-control those activities.  However, it does not include the work's
-System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
-programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
-which are not part of the work.  For example, Corresponding Source
-includes interface definition files associated with source files for
-the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
-linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
-such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
-subprograms and other parts of the work.
-The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users can
-regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding Source.
-The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that same
address@hidden Basic Permissions.
-All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
-copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
-conditions are met.  This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
-permission to run the unmodified Program.  The output from running a
-covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
-content, constitutes a covered work.  This License acknowledges your
-rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
-You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not convey,
-without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains in force.
-You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose of having
-them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you with
-facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with the
-terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do not
-control copyright.  Those thus making or running the covered works for
-you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction and
-control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of your
-copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
-Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under the
-conditions stated below.  Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
-makes it unnecessary.
address@hidden Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
-No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
-measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
-11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
-similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
-When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
-circumvention of technological measures to the extent such
-circumvention is effected by exercising rights under this License with
-respect to the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit
-operation or modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against
-the work's users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid
-circumvention of technological measures.
address@hidden Conveying Verbatim Copies.
-You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
-receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
-appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
-keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
-non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
-keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
-recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
-You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
-and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
address@hidden Conveying Modified Source Versions.
-You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
-produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
-terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these
address@hidden a
-The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified it,
-and giving a relevant date.
-The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is released
-under this License and any conditions added under section 7.  This
-requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to ``keep intact all
-You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this License to
-anyone who comes into possession of a copy.  This License will
-therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7 additional terms,
-to the whole of the work, and all its parts, regardless of how they
-are packaged.  This License gives no permission to license the work in
-any other way, but it does not invalidate such permission if you have
-separately received it.
-If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
-Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
-interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your work
-need not make them do so.
address@hidden enumerate
-A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
-works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
-and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
-in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
-``aggregate'' if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
-used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
-beyond what the individual works permit.  Inclusion of a covered work
-in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
-parts of the aggregate.
address@hidden  Conveying Non-Source Forms.
-You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms of
-sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the machine-readable
-Corresponding Source under the terms of this License, in one of these
address@hidden a
-Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
-(including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
-Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium customarily
-used for software interchange.
-Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
-(including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a written
-offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as long as you
-offer spare parts or customer support for that product model, to give
-anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a copy of the
-Corresponding Source for all the software in the product that is
-covered by this License, on a durable physical medium customarily used
-for software interchange, for a price no more than your reasonable
-cost of physically performing this conveying of source, or (2) access
-to copy the Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
-Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the written
-offer to provide the Corresponding Source.  This alternative is
-allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and only if you
-received the object code with such an offer, in accord with subsection
-Convey the object code by offering access from a designated place
-(gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
-Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
-further charge.  You need not require recipients to copy the
-Corresponding Source along with the object code.  If the place to copy
-the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source may be
-on a different server (operated by you or a third party) that supports
-equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain clear directions
-next to the object code saying where to find the Corresponding Source.
-Regardless of what server hosts the Corresponding Source, you remain
-obligated to ensure that it is available for as long as needed to
-satisfy these requirements.
-Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided you
-inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding Source of
-the work are being offered to the general public at no charge under
-subsection 6d.
address@hidden enumerate
-A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
-from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
-included in conveying the object code work.
-A ``User Product'' is either (1) a ``consumer product'', which means any
-tangible personal property which is normally used for personal,
-family, or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for
-incorporation into a dwelling.  In determining whether a product is a
-consumer product, doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of
-coverage.  For a particular product received by a particular user,
-``normally used'' refers to a typical or common use of that class of
-product, regardless of the status of the particular user or of the way
-in which the particular user actually uses, or expects or is expected
-to use, the product.  A product is a consumer product regardless of
-whether the product has substantial commercial, industrial or
-non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent the only significant
-mode of use of the product.
-``Installation Information'' for a User Product means any methods,
-procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to
-install and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User
-Product from a modified version of its Corresponding Source.  The
-information must suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of
-the modified object code is in no case prevented or interfered with
-solely because modification has been made.
-If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
-specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
-part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
-User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
-fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
-Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
-by the Installation Information.  But this requirement does not apply
-if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
-modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
-been installed in ROM).
-The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
-requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or
-updates for a work that has been modified or installed by the
-recipient, or for the User Product in which it has been modified or
-installed.  Access to a network may be denied when the modification
-itself materially and adversely affects the operation of the network
-or violates the rules and protocols for communication across the
-Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
-in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
-documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
-source code form), and must require no special password or key for
-unpacking, reading or copying.
address@hidden Additional Terms.
-``Additional permissions'' are terms that supplement the terms of this
-License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
-Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
-be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
-that they are valid under applicable law.  If additional permissions
-apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
-under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
-this License without regard to the additional permissions.
-When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
-remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
-it.  (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
-removal in certain cases when you modify the work.)  You may place
-additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
-for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
-Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
-add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders
-of that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
address@hidden a
-Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the terms
-of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
-Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or author
-attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal Notices
-displayed by works containing it; or
-Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
-requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
-reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
-Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
-authors of the material; or
-Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some trade
-names, trademarks, or service marks; or
-Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that material by
-anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of it) with
-contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for any
-liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on those
-licensors and authors.
address@hidden enumerate
-All other non-permissive additional terms are considered ``further
-restrictions'' within the meaning of section 10.  If the Program as you
-received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
-governed by this License along with a term that is a further
-restriction, you may remove that term.  If a license document contains
-a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
-License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
-of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
-not survive such relicensing or conveying.
-If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
-must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
-additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
-where to find the applicable terms.
-Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
-form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions; the
-above requirements apply either way.
address@hidden Termination.
-You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
-provided under this License.  Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
-modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
-this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
-paragraph of section 11).
-However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license
-from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally,
-unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and finally
-terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder
-fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to
-60 days after the cessation.
-Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
-reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
-violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
-received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
-copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
-your receipt of the notice.
-Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
-licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
-this License.  If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
-reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
-material under section 10.
address@hidden Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
-You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or run
-a copy of the Program.  Ancillary propagation of a covered work
-occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
-to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance.  However,
-nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
-modify any covered work.  These actions infringe copyright if you do
-not accept this License.  Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
-covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
address@hidden Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
-Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
-receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
-propagate that work, subject to this License.  You are not responsible
-for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
-An ``entity transaction'' is a transaction transferring control of an
-organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
-organization, or merging organizations.  If propagation of a covered
-work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
-transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
-licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
-give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
-Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
-the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
-You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
-rights granted or affirmed under this License.  For example, you may
-not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
-rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
-(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
-any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
-sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
address@hidden Patents.
-A ``contributor'' is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
-License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based.  The
-work thus licensed is called the contributor's ``contributor version''.
-A contributor's ``essential patent claims'' are all patent claims owned
-or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
-hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
-by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
-but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
-consequence of further modification of the contributor version.  For
-purposes of this definition, ``control'' includes the right to grant
-patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
-this License.
-Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
-patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
-make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
-propagate the contents of its contributor version.
-In the following three paragraphs, a ``patent license'' is any express
-agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
-(such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
-sue for patent infringement).  To ``grant'' such a patent license to a
-party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
-patent against the party.
-If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
-and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
-to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
-publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
-then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
-available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
-patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
-consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
-license to downstream recipients.  ``Knowingly relying'' means you have
-actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
-covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
-in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
-country that you have reason to believe are valid.
-If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
-arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
-covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
-receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
-or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
-you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
-work and works based on it.
-A patent license is ``discriminatory'' if it does not include within the
-scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is conditioned on
-the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are specifically
-granted under this License.  You may not convey a covered work if you
-are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is in the
-business of distributing software, under which you make payment to the
-third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying the
-work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the parties
-who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory patent
-license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work conveyed by
-you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily for and in
-connection with specific products or compilations that contain the
-covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement, or that patent
-license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
-Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
-any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
-otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
address@hidden No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
-If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
-otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
-excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot convey
-a covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under
-this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a
-consequence you may not convey it at all.  For example, if you agree
-to terms that obligate you to collect a royalty for further conveying
-from those to whom you convey the Program, the only way you could
-satisfy both those terms and this License would be to refrain entirely
-from conveying the Program.
address@hidden Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
-Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
-permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
-under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
-combined work, and to convey the resulting work.  The terms of this
-License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
-but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
-section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
-combination as such.
address@hidden Revised Versions of this License.
-The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
-of the GNU General Public License from time to time.  Such new
-versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may
-differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
-Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
-specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General Public
-License ``or any later version'' applies to it, you have the option of
-following the terms and conditions either of that numbered version or
-of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation.  If
-the Program does not specify a version number of the GNU General
-Public License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free
-Software Foundation.
-If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future versions
-of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's public
-statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you to
-choose that version for the Program.
-Later license versions may give you additional or different
-permissions.  However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
-author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
-later version.

address@hidden Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
-If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
-above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
-reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
-an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
-Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
-copy of the Program in return for a fee.

address@hidden How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
-If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
-possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
-free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these
-To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
-to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
-state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
-the ``copyright'' line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

-Copyright (C) @var{year} @var{name of author}
-This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
-it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
-the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at
-your option) any later version.
-This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but
-WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
-General Public License for more details.
-You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
-along with this program.  If not, see @url{http://www.gnu.org/licenses/}.

-Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
-If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short
-notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
address@hidden Copyright (C) @var{year} @var{name of author} 
-This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type @samp{show w}.
-This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
-under certain conditions; type @samp{show c} for details.
address@hidden smallexample
-The hypothetical commands @samp{show w} and @samp{show c} should show
-the appropriate parts of the General Public License.  Of course, your
-program's commands might be different; for a GUI interface, you would
-use an ``about box''.
-You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
-if any, to sign a ``copyright disclaimer'' for the program, if necessary.
-For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see
-The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your
-program into proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine
-library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary
-applications with the library.  If this is what you want to do, use
-the GNU Lesser General Public License instead of this License.  But
-first, please read @url{http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html}.
