18  # your freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU  
19  # General Public License is intended to guarantee your  # NOTE:
20  # freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the  # This file serves only to notify you of the license/warranty conditions. It is
21  # software is free for all its users.  This General Public  # not a regular ASCEND script (a4s) file.
 # License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's  
 # software and to any other program whose authors commit to  
 # using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is  
 # covered by the GNU Library General Public License  
 # instead.)  You can apply it to your programs, too.  
   
 #   When we speak of free software, we are referring to  
 # freedom, not price.  Our General Public Licenses are  
 # designed to make sure that you have the freedom to  
 # distribute copies of free software (and charge for this  
 # service if you wish), that you receive source code or can  
 # get it if you want it, that you can change the software or  
 # use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know  
 # you can do these things.  
   
 #   To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that  
 # forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to  
 # surrender the rights.  These restrictions translate to  
 # certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies  
 # of the software, or if you modify it.  
   
 #   For example, if you distribute copies of such a program,  
 # whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients  
 # all the rights that you have.  You must make sure that  
 # they, too, receive or can get the source code.  And you  
 # must show them these terms so they know their rights.  
   
 #   We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the  
 # software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you  
 # legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the  
 # software.  
   
 #   Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to  
 # make certain that everyone understands that there is no  
 # warranty for this free software.  If the software is  
 # modified by someone else and passed on, we want its  
 # recipients to know that what they have is not the original,  
 # so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect  
 # on the original authors' reputations.  
   
 #   Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by  
 # software patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that  
 # redistributors of a free program will individually obtain  
 # patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary.  
 # To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must  
 # be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at  
 # all.  
   
 # The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution  
 # and modification follow.  
   
 #     GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE  
 # TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND  
 # MODIFICATION  
   
 #   0. This License applies to any program or other work  
 # which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder  
 # saying it may be distributed under the terms of this  
 # General Public License.  The "Program", below, refers to  
 # any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"  
 # means either the Program or any derivative work under  
 # copyright law:  that is to say, a work containing the  
 # Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with  
 # modifications and/or translated into another language.  
 # (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in  
 # the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as  
 # "you".  
   
 # Activities other than copying, distribution and  
 # modification are not covered by this License; they are  
 # outside its scope.  The act of running the Program is not  
 # restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only  
 # if its contents constitute a work based on the Program  
 # (independent of having been made by running the Program).  
 # Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.  
   
 #   1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the  
 # Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium,  
 # provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish  
 # on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer  
 # of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this  
 # License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any  
 # other recipients of the Program a copy of this License  
 # along with the Program.  
   
 # You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a  
 # copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection  
 # in exchange for a fee.  
   
 #   2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or  
 # any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the  
 # Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work  
 # under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also  
 # meet all of these conditions:  
   
 #     a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent  
 #     notices stating that you changed the files and the date  
 #     of any change.  
   
 #     b) You must cause any work that you distribute or  
 #     publish, that in whole or in part contains or is  
 #     derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be  
 #     licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties  
 #     under the terms of this License.  
   
 #     c) If the modified program normally reads commands  
 #     interactively when run, you must cause it, when started  
 #     running for such interactive use in the most ordinary  
 #     way, to print or display an announcement including an  
 #     appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is  
 #     no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a  
 #     warranty) and that users may redistribute the program  
 #     under these conditions, and telling the user how to  
 #     view a copy of this License.  (Exception: if the  
 #     Program itself is interactive but does not normally  
 #     print such an announcement, your work based on the  
 #     Program is not required to print an announcement.)  
   
 # These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  
 # If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from  
 # the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent  
 # and separate works in themselves, then this License, and  
 # its terms, do not apply to those sections when you  
 # distribute them as separate works.  But when you distribute  
 # the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based  
 # on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on  
 # the terms of this License, whose permissions for other  
 # licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and  
 # every part regardless of who wrote it.  
   
 # Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights  
 # or contest your rights to work written entirely by you;  
 # rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the  
 # distribution of derivative or collective works based on the  
 # Program.  
   
 # In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on  
 # the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the  
 # Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium  
 # does not bring the other work under the scope of this  
 # License.  
   
 #   3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work  
 # based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable  
 # form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided  
 # that you also do one of the following:  
   
 #     a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding  
 #     machine-readable source code, which must be distributed  
 #     under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium  
 #     customarily used for software interchange; or,  
   
 #     b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at  
 #     least three years, to give any third party, for a  
 #     charge no more than your cost of physically performing  
 #     source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy  
 #     of the corresponding source code, to be distributed  
 #     under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium  
 #     customarily used for software interchange; or,  
   
 #     c) Accompany it with the information you received as to  
 #     the offer to distribute corresponding source code.  
 #     (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial  
 #     distribution and only if you received the program in  
 #     object code or executable form with such an offer, in  
 #     accord with Subsection b above.)  
   
 # The source code for a work means the preferred form of the  
 # work for making modifications to it.  For an executable  
 # work, complete source code means all the source code for  
 # all modules it contains, plus any associated interface  
 # definition files, plus the scripts used to control  
 # compilation and installation of the executable.  However,  
 # as a special exception, the source code distributed need  
 # not include anything that is normally distributed (in  
 # either source or binary form) with the major components  
 # (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on  
 # which the executable runs, unless that component itself  
 # accompanies the executable.  
   
 # If distribution of executable or object code is made by  
 # offering access to copy from a designated place, then  
 # offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the  
 # same place counts as distribution of the source code, even  
 # though third parties are not compelled to copy the source  
 # along with the object code.  
   
 #   4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute  
 # the Program except as expressly provided under this  
 # License.  Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense  
 # or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically  
 # terminate your rights under this License.  However, parties  
 # who have received copies, or rights, from you under this  
 # License will not have their licenses terminated so long as  
 # such parties remain in full compliance.  
   
 #   5. You are not required to accept this License, since you  
 # have not signed it.  However, nothing else grants you  
 # permission to modify or distribute the Program or its  
 # derivative works.  These actions are prohibited by law if  
 # you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by modifying or  
 # distributing the Program (or any work based on the  
 # Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to  
 # do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying,  
 # distributing or modifying the Program or works based on  
 # it.  
   
 #   6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work  
 # based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives  
 # a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or  
 # modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions.  
 # You may not impose any further restrictions on the  
 # recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.  You are  
 # not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties  
 # to this License.  
   
 #   7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation  
 # of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited  
 # to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether  
 # by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the  
 # conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the  
 # conditions of this License.  If you cannot distribute so as  
 # to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this  
 # License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a  
 # consequence you may not distribute the Program at all.  For  
 # example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free  
 # redistribution of the Program by all those who receive  
 # copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only  
 # way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to  
 # refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.  
   
 # If any portion of this section is held invalid or  
 # unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the  
 # balance of the section is intended to apply and the section  
 # as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.  
   
 # It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to  
 # infringe any patents or other property right claims or to  
 # contest validity of any such claims; this section has the  
 # sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free  
 # software distribution system, which is implemented by  
 # public license practices.  Many people have made generous  
 # contributions to the wide range of software distributed  
 # through that system in reliance on consistent application  
 # of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if  
 # he or she is willing to distribute software through any  
 # other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.  
   
 # This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is  
 # believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.  
   
 #   8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is  
 # restricted in certain countries either by patents or by  
 # copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who  
 # places the Program under this License may add an explicit  
 # geographical distribution limitation excluding those  
 # countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or  
 # among countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this  
 # License incorporates the limitation as if written in the  
 # body of this License.  
   
 #   9. The Free Software Foundation may  
 # publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public  
 # License from time to time.  Such new versions will be  
 # similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in  
 # detail to address new problems or concerns.  
   
 # Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If  
 # the Program specifies a version number of this License  
 # which applies to it and "any later version", you have the  
 # option of following the terms and conditions either of that  
 # version or of any later version published by the Free  
 # Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a  
 # version number of this License, you may choose any version  
 # ever published by the Free Software Foundation.  
   
 #   10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into  
 # other free programs whose distribution conditions are  
 # different, write to the author to ask for permission.  For  
 # software which is copyrighted by the Free Software  
 # Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we  
 # sometimes make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be  
 # guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of  
 # all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the  
 # sharing and reuse of software generally.  
   
 #     NO WARRANTY  
   
 #   11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE  
 # IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY  
 # APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING  
 # THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE  
 # PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER  
 # EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE  
 # IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A  
 # PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND  
 # PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE PROGRAM  
 # PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY  
 # SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.  
   
 #   12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR  
 # AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY  
 # OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM  
 # AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING  
 # ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES  
 # ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM  
 # (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING  
 # RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD  
 # PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY  
 # OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS  
 # BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  
   
 #      END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS  
   
   
   
   
 # How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs  
   
 #   If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of  
 # the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to  
 # achieve this is to make it free software which everyone can  
 # redistribute and change under these terms.  
   
 #   To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  
 # It is safest to attach them to the start of each source  
 # file to most effectively convey the exclusion of warranty;  
 # and each file should have at least the "copyright" line and  
 # a pointer to where the full notice is found.  
   
 # /*  
 # <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>  
 # Copyright (C) 19yy  <name of author>  
   
 # This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify  
 # it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by  
 # the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or  
 # (at your option) any later version.  
   
 # This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,  
 # but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of  
 # MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the  
 # GNU General Public License for more details.  
   
 # You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License  
 # along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software  
 # Foundation, Inc., 675 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA.  
 # */  
   
 # Also add information on how to contact you by electronic  
 # and paper mail.  
   
 # If the program is interactive, make it output a short  
 # notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:  
   
   
 #     Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) 19yy name of author  
 #     Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.  
 #     This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it  
 #     under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.  
   
 # The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show  
 # the appropriate parts of the General Public License.  Of  
 # course, the commands you use may be called something other  
 # than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be mouse-clicks  
 # or menu items--whatever suits your program.  
   
 # You should also get your employer (if you work as a  
 # programmer) or your school, if any, to sign a "copyright  
 # disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.  Here is a  
 # sample; alter the names:  
   
 #   Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest

 # This General Public License does not permit incorporating  
 # your program into proprietary programs.  If your program is  
 # a subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to  
 # permit linking proprietary applications with the library.  
 # If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General  
 # Public License instead of this License.
