10<Text>GNU Free Documentation License</Text>
13<Text>Version 1.2, November 2002</Text>
14<CodeLine>Copyright (C) 2000,2001,2002 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.</CodeLine>
15<Text><b>0. PREAMBLE</b></Text>
16<Text>The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document "free" in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by others.</Text>
17<Text>This License is a kind of "copyleft", which means that derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense. It complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft license designed for free software.</Text>
18<Text>We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free software, because free software needs free documentation: a free program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the software does. But this License is not limited to software manuals; it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or whether it is published as a printed book. We recommend this License principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.</Text>
20<Text>This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be distributed under the terms of this License. Such a notice grants a world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in duration, to use that work under the conditions stated herein. The "Document", below, refers to any such manual or work. Any member of the public is a licensee, and is addressed as "you". You accept the license if you copy, modify or distribute the work in a way requiring permission under copyright law.</Text>
21<Text>A "Modified Version" of the Document means any work containing the Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with modifications and/or translated into another language.</Text>
22<Text>A "Secondary Section" is a named appendix or a front-matter section of the Document that deals exclusively with the relationship of the publishers or authors of the Document to the Document's overall subject (or to related matters) and contains nothing that could fall directly within that overall subject. (Thus, if the Document is in part a textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any mathematics.) The relationship could be a matter of historical connection with the subject or with related matters, or of legal, commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding them.</Text>
23<Text>The "Invariant Sections" are certain Secondary Sections whose titles are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. If a section does not fit the above definition of Secondary then it is not allowed to be designated as Invariant. The Document may contain zero Invariant Sections. If the Document does not identify any Invariant Sections then there are none.</Text>
24<Text>The "Cover Texts" are certain short passages of text that are listed, as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. A Front-Cover Text may be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover Text may be at most 25 words.</Text>
25<Text>A "Transparent" copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy, represented in a format whose specification is available to the general public, that is suitable for revising the document straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for images composed of pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input to text formatters. A copy made in an otherwise Transparent file format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been arranged to thwart or discourage subsequent modification by readers is not Transparent. An image format is not Transparent if used for any substantial amount of text. A copy that is not "Transparent" is called "Opaque".</Text>
26<Text>Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input format, SGML or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standard-conforming simple HTML, PostScript or PDF designed for human modification. Examples of transparent image formats include PNG, XCF and JPG. Opaque formats include proprietary formats that can be read and edited only by proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or processing tools are not generally available, and the machine-generated HTML, PostScript or PDF produced by some word processors for output purposes only.</Text>
27<Text>The "Title Page" means, for a printed book, the title page itself, plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material this License requires to appear in the title page. For works in formats which do not have any title page as such, "Title Page" means the text near the most prominent appearance of the work's title, preceding the beginning of the body of the text.</Text>
29 A section "Entitled XYZ" means a named subunit of the Document whose
30 title either is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in parentheses following
31 text that translates XYZ in another language. (Here XYZ stands for a
32 specific section name mentioned below, such as "Acknowledgements",
33 "Dedications", "Endorsements", or "History".) To "Preserve the Title"
34 of such a section when you modify the Document means that it remains a
35 section "Entitled XYZ" according to this definition.
39 The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which
40 states that this License applies to the Document. These Warranty
41 Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this
42 License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties: any other
43 implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has
44 no effect on the meaning of this License.
53 You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either
54 commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the
55 copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies
56 to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other
57 conditions whatsoever to those of this License. You may not use
58 technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further
59 copying of the copies you make or distribute. However, you may accept
60 compensation in exchange for copies. If you distribute a large enough
61 number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3.
65 You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and
66 you may publicly display copies.
75 If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have
76 printed covers) of the Document, numbering more than 100, and the
77 Document's license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the
78 copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover
79 Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on
80 the back cover. Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify
81 you as the publisher of these copies. The front cover must present
82 the full title with all words of the title equally prominent and
83 visible. You may add other material on the covers in addition.
84 Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve
85 the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated
86 as verbatim copying in other respects.
90 If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to fit
91 legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit
92 reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent
93 pages.
97 If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering
98 more than 100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent
99 copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy
100 a computer-network location from which the general network-using
101 public has access to download using public-standard network protocols
102 a complete Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material.
103 If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps,
104 when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure
105 that this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated
106 location until at least one year after the last time you distribute an
107 Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or retailers) of that
108 edition to the public.
112 It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the
113 Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give
114 them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.
118 <b>4. MODIFICATIONS</b>
123 You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document under
124 the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release
125 the Modified Version under precisely this License, with the Modified
126 Version filling the role of the Document, thus licensing distribution
127 and modification of the Modified Version to whoever possesses a copy
128 of it. In addition, you must do these things in the Modified Version:
132 <Bullet><Text><b>A.</b> Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct
133 from that of the Document, and from those of previous versions
134 (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section
135 of the Document). You may use the same title as a previous version
136 if the original publisher of that version gives permission.</Text></Bullet>
137 <Bullet><Text><b>B.</b> List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities
138 responsible for authorship of the modifications in the Modified
139 Version, together with at least five of the principal authors of the
140 Document (all of its principal authors, if it has fewer than five),
141 unless they release you from this requirement.</Text></Bullet>
143 <Bullet><Text><b>C.</b> State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the
144 Modified Version, as the publisher.</Text></Bullet>
145 <Bullet><Text><b>D.</b> Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.</Text></Bullet>
146 <Bullet><Text><b>E.</b> Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modifications
147 adjacent to the other copyright notices.</Text></Bullet>
149 <Bullet><Text><b>F.</b> Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice
150 giving the public permission to use the Modified Version under the
151 terms of this License, in the form shown in the Addendum below.</Text></Bullet>
152 <Bullet><Text><b>G.</b> Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections
153 and required Cover Texts given in the Document's license notice.</Text></Bullet>
154 <Bullet><Text><b>H.</b> Include an unaltered copy of this License.</Text></Bullet>
155 <Bullet><Text><b>I.</b> Preserve the section Entitled "History", Preserve its Title, and add
156 to it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors, and
157 publisher of the Modified Version as given on the Title Page. If
158 there is no section Entitled "History" in the Document, create one
159 stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as
160 given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modified
161 Version as stated in the previous sentence.</Text></Bullet>
163 <Bullet><Text><b>J.</b> Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for
164 public access to a Transparent copy of the Document, and likewise
165 the network locations given in the Document for previous versions
166 it was based on. These may be placed in the "History" section.
167 You may omit a network location for a work that was published at
168 least four years before the Document itself, or if the original
169 publisher of the version it refers to gives permission.</Text></Bullet>
170 <Bullet><Text><b>K.</b> For any section Entitled "Acknowledgements" or "Dedications",
171 Preserve the Title of the section, and preserve in the section all
172 the substance and tone of each of the contributor acknowledgements
173 and/or dedications given therein.</Text></Bullet>
174 <Bullet><Text><b>L.</b> Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document,
175 unaltered in their text and in their titles. Section numbers
176 or the equivalent are not considered part of the section titles.</Text></Bullet>
177 <Bullet><Text><b>M.</b> Delete any section Entitled "Endorsements". Such a section
178 may not be included in the Modified Version.</Text></Bullet>
180 <Bullet><Text><b>N.</b> Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled "Endorsements"
181 or to conflict in title with any Invariant Section.</Text></Bullet>
182 <Bullet><Text><b>O.</b> Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers.</Text></Bullet>
186 If the Modified Version includes new front-matter sections or
187 appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no material
188 copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or all
189 of these sections as invariant. To do this, add their titles to the
190 list of Invariant Sections in the Modified Version's license notice.
191 These titles must be distinct from any other section titles.
196 You may add a section Entitled "Endorsements", provided it contains
197 nothing but endorsements of your Modified Version by various
198 parties--for example, statements of peer review or that the text has
199 been approved by an organization as the authoritative definition of a
200 standard.
204 You may add a passage of up to five words as a Front-Cover Text, and a
205 passage of up to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to the end of the list
206 of Cover Texts in the Modified Version. Only one passage of
207 Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text may be added by (or
208 through arrangements made by) any one entity. If the Document already
209 includes a cover text for the same cover, previously added by you or
210 by arrangement made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of,
211 you may not add another; but you may replace the old one, on explicit
212 permission from the previous publisher that added the old one.
216 The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License
217 give permission to use their names for publicity for or to assert or
218 imply endorsement of any Modified Version.
226 You may combine the Document with other documents released under this
227 License, under the terms defined in section 4 above for modified
228 versions, provided that you include in the combination all of the
229 Invariant Sections of all of the original documents, unmodified, and
230 list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in its
231 license notice, and that you preserve all their Warranty Disclaimers.
235 The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and
236 multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single
237 copy. If there are multiple Invariant Sections with the same name but
238 different contents, make the title of each such section unique by
239 adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original
240 author or publisher of that section if known, or else a unique number.
241 Make the same adjustment to the section titles in the list of
242 Invariant Sections in the license notice of the combined work.
246 In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled "History"
247 in the various original documents, forming one section Entitled
248 "History"; likewise combine any sections Entitled "Acknowledgements",
249 and any sections Entitled "Dedications". You must delete all sections
250 Entitled "Endorsements."
258 You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents
259 released under this License, and replace the individual copies of this
260 License in the various documents with a single copy that is included in
261 the collection, provided that you follow the rules of this License for
262 verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other respects.
266 You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute
267 it individually under this License, provided you insert a copy of this
268 License into the extracted document, and follow this License in all
269 other respects regarding verbatim copying of that document.
277 A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate
278 and independent documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or
279 distribution medium, is called an "aggregate" if the copyright
280 resulting from the compilation is not used to limit the legal rights
281 of the compilation's users beyond what the individual works permit.
282 When the Document is included in an aggregate, this License does not
283 apply to the other works in the aggregate which are not themselves
284 derivative works of the Document.
289 If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these
290 copies of the Document, then if the Document is less than one half of
291 the entire aggregate, the Document's Cover Texts may be placed on
292 covers that bracket the Document within the aggregate, or the
293 electronic equivalent of covers if the Document is in electronic form.
294 Otherwise they must appear on printed covers that bracket the whole
295 aggregate.
299 <b>8. TRANSLATION</b>
303 Translation is considered a kind of modification, so you may
304 distribute translations of the Document under the terms of section 4.
305 Replacing Invariant Sections with translations requires special
306 permission from their copyright holders, but you may include
307 translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the
308 original versions of these Invariant Sections. You may include a
309 translation of this License, and all the license notices in the
310 Document, and any Warranty Disclaimers, provided that you also include
311 the original English version of this License and the original versions
312 of those notices and disclaimers. In case of a disagreement between
313 the translation and the original version of this License or a notice
314 or disclaimer, the original version will prevail.
319 If a section in the Document is Entitled "Acknowledgements",
320 "Dedications", or "History", the requirement (section 4) to Preserve
321 its Title (section 1) will typically require changing the actual
322 title.
326 <b>9. TERMINATION</b>
330 You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except
331 as expressly provided for under this License. Any other attempt to
332 copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Document is void, and will
333 automatically terminate your rights under this License. However,
334 parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this
335 License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
336 parties remain in full compliance.
345 The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions
346 of the GNU Free Documentation License from time to time. Such new
347 versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may
348 differ in detail to address new problems or concerns. See
353 Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number.
354 If the Document specifies that a particular numbered version of this
355 License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the option of
356 following the terms and conditions either of that specified version or
357 of any later version that has been published (not as a draft) by the
358 Free Software Foundation. If the Document does not specify a version
359 number of this License, you may choose any version ever published (not
360 as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation.
364<Title><Text>How to use this License for your documents</Text></Title>
367 To use this License in a document you have written, include a copy of
368 the License in the document and put the following copyright and
369 license notices just after the title page:
373 Copyright (c) YEAR YOUR NAME.
374 Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document
375 under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2
376 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation;
377 with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover
378 Texts. A copy of the license is included in the section entitled "GNU
379 Free Documentation License".
383 If you have Invariant Sections, Front-Cover Texts and Back-Cover Texts,
384 replace the "with...Texts." line with this:
389 with the Invariant Sections being LIST THEIR TITLES, with the
390 Front-Cover Texts being LIST, and with the Back-Cover Texts being LIST.
394 If you have Invariant Sections without Cover Texts, or some other
395 combination of the three, merge those two alternatives to suit the
396 situation.
400 If your document contains nontrivial examples of program code, we
401 recommend releasing these examples in parallel under your choice of
402 free software license, such as the GNU General Public License,
403 to permit their use in free software.
