COMMON DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION LICENSE (CDDL) Version 1.1 

1. Definitions. 

    1.1. "Contributor" means each individual or entity that creates or 
    contributes to the creation of Modifications. 

    1.2. "Contributor Version" means the combination of the Original 
    Software, prior Modifications used by a Contributor (if any), and the 
    Modifications made by that particular Contributor. 

    1.3. "Covered Software" means (a) the Original Software, or (b) 
    Modifications, or (c) the combination of files containing Original 
    Software with files containing Modifications, in each case including 
    portions thereof. 

    1.4. "Executable" means the Covered Software in any form other than 
    Source Code. 

    1.5. "Initial Developer" means the individual or entity that first makes 
    Original Software available under this License. 

    1.6. "Larger Work" means a work which combines Covered Software or 
    portions thereof with code not governed by the terms of this License. 

    1.7. "License" means this document. 

    1.8. "Licensable" means having the right to grant, to the maximum extent 
    possible, whether at the time of the initial grant or subsequently 
    acquired, any and all of the rights conveyed herein. 

    1.9. "Modifications" means the Source Code and Executable form of any of 
    the following: 

    A. Any file that results from an addition to, deletion from or 
    modification of the contents of a file containing Original Software or 
    previous Modifications; 

    B. Any new file that contains any part of the Original Software or 
    previous Modification; or

    rights under, and complying with all of the terms of, this License. For 
    legal entities, "You" includes any entity which controls, is controlled 
    by, or is under common control with You. For purposes of this 
    definition, "control" means (a) the power, direct or indirect, to cause 
    the direction or management of such entity, whether by contract or 
    otherwise, or (b) ownership of more than fifty percent (50%) of the 
    outstanding shares or beneficial ownership of such entity. 

2. License Grants. 

    2.1. The Initial Developer Grant. 

    Conditioned upon Your compliance with Section 3.1 below and subject to 
    third party intellectual property claims, the Initial Developer hereby 
    grants You a world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license: 

    (a) under intellectual property rights (other than patent or trademark) 
    Licensable by Initial Developer, to use, reproduce, modify, display, 
    perform, sublicense and distribute the Original Software (or portions 
    thereof), with or without Modifications, and/or as part of a Larger 
    Work; and 

    (b) under Patent Claims infringed by the making, using or selling of 
    Original Software, to make, have made, use, practice, sell, and offer 
    for sale, and/or otherwise dispose of the Original Software (or portions 
    thereof). 

    (c) The licenses granted in Sections 2.1(a) and (b) are effective on the 
    date Initial Developer first distributes or otherwise makes the Original 
    Software available to a third party under the terms of this License. 

    (d) Notwithstanding Section 2.1(b) above, no patent license is granted: 
    (1) for code that You delete from the Original Software, or (2) for 
    infringements caused by: (i) the modification of the Original Software, 
    or (ii) the combination of the Original Software with other software or 
    devices. 

    2.2. Contributor Grant. 

    Conditioned upon Your compliance with Section 3.1 below and subject to 
    third party intellectual property claims, each Contributor hereby grants 
    You a world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license: 

    (a) under intellectual property rights (other than patent or trademark) 
    Licensable by Contributor to use, reproduce, modify, display, perform, 
    sublicense and distribute the Modifications created by such Contributor 
    (or portions thereof), either on an unmodified basis, with other 
    Modifications, as Covered Software and/or as part of a Larger Work; and 

    (b) under Patent Claims infringed by the making, using, or selling of 
    Modifications made by that Contributor either alone and/or in 
    combination with its Contributor Version (or portions of such 
    combination), to make, use, sell, offer for sale, have made, and/or 
    otherwise dispose of: (1) Modifications made by that Contributor (or 
    portions thereof); and (2) the combination of Modifications made by that 
    Contributor with its Contributor Version (or portions of such 
    combination). 

    (c) The licenses granted in Sections 2.2(a) and 2.2(b) are effective on 
    the date Contributor first distributes or otherwise makes the 
    Modifications available to a third party. 

    (d) Notwithstanding Section 2.2(b) above, no patent license is granted: 
    (1) for any code that Contributor has deleted from the Contributor 
    Version; (2) for infringements caused by: (i) third party modifications 
    of Contributor Version, or (ii) the combination of Modifications made by 
    that Contributor with other software (except as part of the Contributor 
    Version) or other devices; or (3) under Patent Claims infringed by 
    Covered Software in the absence of Modifications made by that 
    Contributor. 

3. Distribution Obligations. 

    3.1. Availability of Source Code. 

    Any Covered Software that You distribute or otherwise make available in 
    Executable form must also be made available in Source Code form and that 
    Source Code form must be distributed only under the terms of this 
    License. You must include a copy of this License with every copy of the 
    Source Code form of the Covered Software You distribute or otherwise 
    make available. You must inform recipients of any such Covered Software 
    in Executable form as to how they can obtain such Covered Software in 
    Source Code form in a reasonable manner on or through a medium 
    customarily used for software exchange. 

    3.2. Modifications. 

    The Modifications that You create or to which You contribute are 
    governed by the terms of this License. You represent that You believe 
    Your Modifications are Your original creation(s) and/or You have 
    sufficient rights to grant the rights conveyed by this License. 

    3.3. Required Notices. 

    You must include a notice in each of Your Modifications that identifies 
    You as the Contributor of the Modification. You may not remove or alter 
    any copyright, patent or trademark notices contained within the Covered 
    Software, or any notices of licensing or any descriptive text giving 
    attribution to any Contributor or the Initial Developer. 

    3.4. Application of Additional Terms. 

    You may not offer or impose any terms on any Covered Software in Source 
    Code form that alters or restricts the applicable version of this 
    License or the recipients' rights hereunder. You may choose to offer, 
    and to charge a fee for, warranty, support, indemnity or liability 
    obligations to one or more recipients of Covered Software. However, you 
    may do so only on Your own behalf, and not on behalf of the Initial 
    Developer or any Contributor. You must make it absolutely clear that any 
    such warranty, support, indemnity or liability obligation is offered by 
    You alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify the Initial Developer and 
    every Contributor for any liability incurred by the Initial Developer or 
    such Contributor as a result of warranty, support, indemnity or 
    liability terms You offer. 

    3.5. Distribution of Executable Versions. 

    You may distribute the Executable form of the Covered Software under the 
    terms of this License or under the terms of a license of Your choice, 
    which may contain terms different from this License, provided that You 
    are in compliance with the terms of this License and that the license 
    for the Executable form does not attempt to limit or alter the 
    recipient's rights in the Source Code form from the rights set forth in 
    this License. If You distribute the Covered Software in Executable form 
    under a different license, You must make it absolutely clear that any 
    terms which differ from this License are offered by You alone, not by 
    the Initial Developer or Contributor. You hereby agree to indemnify the 
    Initial Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred by 
    the Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of any such terms 
    You offer. 

    3.6. Larger Works. 

    You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered Software with other 
    code not governed by the terms of this License and distribute the Larger 
    Work as a single product. In such a case, You must make sure the 
    requirements of this License are fulfilled for the Covered Software. 

4. Versions of the License. 

    4.1. New Versions. 

    Oracle is the initial license steward and may publish revised and/or new 
    versions of this License from time to time. Each version will be given a 
    distinguishing version number. Except as provided in Section 4.3, no one 
    other than the license steward has the right to modify this License. 

    4.2. Effect of New Versions. 

    You may always continue to use, distribute or otherwise make the Covered 
    Software available under the terms of the version of the License under 
    which You originally received the Covered Software. If the Initial 
    Developer includes a notice in the Original Software prohibiting it from 
    being distributed or otherwise made available under any subsequent 
    version of the License, You must distribute and make the Covered 
    Software available under the terms of the version of the License under 
    which You originally received the Covered Software. Otherwise, You may 
    also choose to use, distribute or otherwise make the Covered Software 
    available under the terms of any subsequent version of the License 
    published by the license steward. 

    4.3. Modified Versions. 

    When You are an Initial Developer and You want to create a new license 
    for Your Original Software, You may create and use a modified version of 
    this License if You: (a) rename the license and remove any references to 
    the name of the license steward (except to note that the license differs 
    from this License); and (b) otherwise make it clear that the license 
    contains terms which differ from this License. 

5. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY. 

    COVERED SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED UNDER THIS LICENSE ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, 
    WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, 
    WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES THAT THE COVERED SOFTWARE IS FREE OF 
    DEFECTS, MERCHANTABLE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGING. 
    THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE COVERED 
    SOFTWARE IS WITH YOU. SHOULD ANY COVERED SOFTWARE PROVE DEFECTIVE IN ANY 
    RESPECT, YOU (NOT THE INITIAL DEVELOPER OR ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR) ASSUME 
    THE COST OF ANY NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. THIS 
    DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS LICENSE. NO 
    USE OF ANY COVERED SOFTWARE IS AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER THIS 
    DISCLAIMER. 

6. TERMINATION. 

    6.1. This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate 
    automatically if You fail to comply with terms herein and fail to cure 
    such breach within 30 days of becoming aware of the breach. Provisions 
    which, by their nature, must remain in effect beyond the termination of 
    this License shall survive. 

    6.2. If You assert a patent infringement claim (excluding declaratory 
    judgment actions) against Initial Developer or a Contributor (the 
    Initial Developer or Contributor against whom You assert such claim is 
    referred to as "Participant") alleging that the Participant Software 
    (meaning the Contributor Version where the Participant is a Contributor 
    or the Original Software where the Participant is the Initial Developer) 
    directly or indirectly infringes any patent, then any and all rights 
    granted directly or indirectly to You by such Participant, the Initial 
    Developer (if the Initial Developer is not the Participant) and all 
    Contributors under Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 of this License shall, upon 
    60 days notice from Participant terminate prospectively and 
    automatically at the expiration of such 60 day notice period, unless if 
    within such 60 day period You withdraw Your claim with respect to the 
    Participant Software against such Participant either unilaterally or 
    pursuant to a written agreement with Participant. 

    6.3. If You assert a patent infringement claim against Participant 
    alleging that the Participant Software directly or indirectly infringes 
    any patent where such claim is resolved (such as by license or 
    settlement) prior to the initiation of patent infringement litigation, 
    then the reasonable value of the licenses granted by such Participant 
    under Sections 2.1 or 2.2 shall be taken into account in determining the 
    amount or value of any payment or license. 

    6.4. In the event of termination under Sections 6.1 or 6.2 above, all 
    end user licenses that have been validly granted by You or any 
    distributor hereunder prior to termination (excluding licenses granted 
    to You by any distributor) shall survive termination. 

7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. 

    UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER TORT 
    (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL YOU, THE INITIAL 
    DEVELOPER, ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR, OR ANY DISTRIBUTOR OF COVERED 
    SOFTWARE, OR ANY SUPPLIER OF ANY OF SUCH PARTIES, BE LIABLE TO ANY 
    PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES 
    OF ANY CHARACTER INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF 
    GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL 
    OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY SHALL HAVE BEEN 
    INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION OF 
    LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY 
    RESULTING FROM SUCH PARTY'S NEGLIGENCE TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE LAW 
    PROHIBITS SUCH LIMITATION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION 
    OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS EXCLUSION 
    AND LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. 

8. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS. 

    The Covered Software is a "commercial item," as that term is defined in 
    48 C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of "commercial computer 
    software" (as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R.  252.227-7014(a)(1)) 
    and "commercial computer software documentation" as such terms are used 
    in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sept. 1995). Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 
    48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 (June 1995), all U.S. Government 
    End Users acquire Covered Software with only those rights set forth 
    herein. This U.S. Government Rights clause is in lieu of, and 
    supersedes, any other FAR, DFAR, or other clause or provision that 
    addresses Government rights in computer software under this License. 

9. MISCELLANEOUS. 

    This License represents the complete agreement concerning subject matter 
    hereof. If any provision of this License is held to be unenforceable, 
    such provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it 
    enforceable. This License shall be governed by the law of the 
    jurisdiction specified in a notice contained within the Original 
    Software (except to the extent applicable law, if any, provides 
    otherwise), excluding such jurisdiction's conflict-of-law provisions. 
    Any litigation relating to this License shall be subject to the 
    jurisdiction of the courts located in the jurisdiction and venue 
    specified in a notice contained within the Original Software, with the 
    losing party responsible for costs, including, without limitation, court 
    costs and reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses. The application of 
    the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of 
    Goods is expressly excluded. Any law or regulation which provides that 
    the language of a contract shall be construed against the drafter shall 
    not apply to this License. You agree that You alone are responsible for 
    compliance with the United States export administration regulations (and 
    the export control laws and regulation of any other countries) when You 
    use, distribute or otherwise make available any Covered Software. 

10. RESPONSIBILITY FOR CLAIMS. 

    As between Initial Developer and the Contributors, each party is 
    responsible for claims and damages arising, directly or indirectly, out 
    of its utilization of rights under this License and You agree to work 
    with Initial Developer and Contributors to distribute such 
    responsibility on an equitable basis. Nothing herein is intended or 
    shall be deemed to constitute any admission of liability. 

NOTICE PURSUANT TO SECTION 9 OF THE COMMON DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION 
LICENSE (CDDL) 

The code released under the CDDL shall be governed by the laws of the 
State of California (excluding conflict-of-law provisions). Any 
litigation relating to this License shall be subject to the jurisdiction 
of the Federal Courts of the Northern District of California and the 
state courts of the State of California, with venue lying in Santa Clara 
County, California. 




The GNU General Public License (GPL) Version 2, June 1991 

Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 59 Temple Place, 
Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA 

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this 
license document, but changing it is not allowed. 

Preamble 

The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to 
share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is 
intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to 
make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public 
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. 

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) <year> <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., 
    59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 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) year 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 in the program 
    `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker. 

    signature of Ty Coon, 1 April 1989
    Ty Coon, President of Vice 

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.

"CLASSPATH" EXCEPTION TO THE GPL VERSION 2 

Certain source files distributed by Oracle are subject to the following 
clarification and special exception to the GPL Version 2, but only where 
Oracle has expressly included in the particular source file's header the 
words "Oracle designates this particular file as subject to the 
"Classpath" exception as provided by Oracle in the License file that 
accompanied this code." 

Linking this library statically or dynamically with other modules is 
making a combined work based on this library. Thus, the terms and 
conditions of the GNU General Public License Version 2 cover the whole 
combination. 

As a special exception, the copyright holders of this library give you 
permission to link this library with independent modules to produce an 
executable, regardless of the license terms of these independent 
modules, and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under terms 
of your choice, provided that you also meet, for each linked independent 
module, the terms and conditions of the license of that module. An 
independent module is a module which is not derived from or based on 
this library. If you modify this library, you may extend this exception 
to your version of the library, but you are not obligated to do so. If 
you do not wish to do so, delete this exception statement from your 
version.
