7 GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
8 Version 2.1, February 1999
10 Copyright (C) 1991, 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
11 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
12 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
13 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
15 [This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also counts
16 as the successor of the GNU Library Public License, version 2, hence
17 the version number 2.1.]
19 Preamble
21 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
22 freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
23 Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change
24 free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.
26 This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some
27 specially designated software packages--typically libraries--of the
28 Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to use it. You
29 can use it too, but we suggest you first think carefully about whether
30 this license or the ordinary General Public License is the better
31 strategy to use in any particular case, based on the explanations
32 below.
34 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use,
35 not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that
36 you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge
37 for this service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get
38 it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of
39 it in new free programs; and that you are informed that you can do
40 these things.
42 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
43 distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these
44 rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
45 you if you distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.
47 For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis
48 or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave
49 you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source
50 code. If you link other code with the library, you must provide
51 complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them
52 with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling
53 it. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
55 We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the
56 library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal
57 permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
59 To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that
60 there is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the library is
61 modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know
62 that what they have is not the original version, so that the original
63 author's reputation will not be affected by problems that might be
64 introduced by others.
66 Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of
67 any free program. We wish to make sure that a company cannot
68 effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a
69 restrictive license from a patent holder. Therefore, we insist that
70 any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be
71 consistent with the full freedom of use specified in this license.
73 Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the
74 ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU Lesser
75 General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and
76 is quite different from the ordinary General Public License. We use
77 this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those
78 libraries into non-free programs.
80 When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using
81 a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a
82 combined work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary
83 General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the
84 entire combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser General
85 Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with
86 the library.
88 We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it
89 does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General
90 Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less
91 of an advantage over competing non-free programs. These disadvantages
92 are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many
93 libraries. However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain
94 special circumstances.
96 For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to
97 encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it
98 becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must
99 be allowed to use the library. A more frequent case is that a free
100 library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. In this
101 case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free
102 software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.
104 In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free
105 programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of
106 free software. For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in
107 non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU
108 operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating
109 system.
111 Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the
112 users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is
113 linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run
114 that program using a modified version of the Library.
116 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
117 modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference between a
118 "work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library". The
119 former contains code derived from the library, whereas the latter must
120 be combined with the library in order to run.
122 GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
123 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
125 0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other
126 program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or
127 other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of
128 this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License").
129 Each licensee is addressed as "you".
131 A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data
132 prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs
133 (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
135 The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work
136 which has been distributed under these terms. A "work based on the
137 Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under
138 copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a
139 portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
140 straightforwardly into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is
141 included without limitation in the term "modification".)
143 "Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for
144 making modifications to it. For a library, complete source code means
145 all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated
146 interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control
147 compilation and installation of the library.
149 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
150 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
151 running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from
152 such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based
153 on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for
154 writing it). Whether that is true depends on what the Library does
155 and what the program that uses the Library does.
157 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's
158 complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
159 you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
160 appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
161 all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any
162 warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the
163 Library.
165 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
166 and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a
167 fee.
169 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion
170 of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and
171 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
172 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
174 a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
176 b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices
177 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
179 c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no
180 charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
182 d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a
183 table of data to be supplied by an application program that uses
184 the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility
185 is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that,
186 in the event an application does not supply such function or
187 table, the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of
188 its purpose remains meaningful.
190 (For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has
191 a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
192 application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
193 application-supplied function or table used by this function must
194 be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square
195 root function must still compute square roots.)
197 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
198 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library,
199 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
200 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
201 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
202 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
203 on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
204 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
205 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
206 it.
208 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
209 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
210 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
211 collective works based on the Library.
213 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library
214 with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of
215 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
216 the scope of this License.
218 3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
219 License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library. To do
220 this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
221 that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
222 instead of to this License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the
223 ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
224 that version instead if you wish.) Do not make any other change in
225 these notices.
227 Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for
228 that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all
229 subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
231 This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of
232 the Library into a program that is not a library.
234 4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or
235 derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
236 under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany
237 it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which
238 must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
239 medium customarily used for software interchange.
241 If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy
242 from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
243 source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
244 distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
245 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
247 5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
248 Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or
249 linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library". Such a
250 work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
251 therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
253 However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library
254 creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it
255 contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the
256 library". The executable is therefore covered by this License.
257 Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
259 When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file
260 that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a
261 derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.
262 Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be
263 linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library. The
264 threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
266 If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
267 structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline
268 functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object
269 file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative
270 work. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the
271 Library will still fall under Section 6.)
273 Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
274 distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6.
275 Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6,
276 whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
278 6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or
279 link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a
280 work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work
281 under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit
282 modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse
283 engineering for debugging such modifications.
285 You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the
286 Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by
287 this License. You must supply a copy of this License. If the work
288 during execution displays copyright notices, you must include the
289 copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference
290 directing the user to the copy of this License. Also, you must do one
291 of these things:
293 a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding
294 machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever
295 changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under
296 Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable linked
297 with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work that
298 uses the Library", as object code and/or source code, so that the
299 user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified
300 executable containing the modified Library. (It is understood
301 that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the
302 Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the application
303 to use the modified definitions.)
305 b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
306 Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time a
307 copy of the library already present on the user's computer system,
308 rather than copying library functions into the executable, and (2)
309 will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if
310 the user installs one, as long as the modified version is
311 interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with.
313 c) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at least
314 three years, to give the same user the materials specified in
315 Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more than the cost of
316 performing this distribution.
318 d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy
319 from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the above
320 specified materials from the same place.
322 e) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these
323 materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
325 For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the
326 Library" must include any data and utility programs needed for
327 reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special exception,
328 the materials to be distributed need not include anything that is
329 normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
330 components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on
331 which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
332 the executable.
334 It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
335 restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
336 accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you cannot
337 use both them and the Library together in an executable that you
338 distribute.
340 7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
341 Library side-by-side in a single library together with other library
342 facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined
343 library, provided that the separate distribution of the work based on
344 the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise
345 permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
347 a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work
348 based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
349 facilities. This must be distributed under the terms of the
350 Sections above.
352 b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact
353 that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining
354 where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
356 8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute
357 the Library except as expressly provided under this License. Any
358 attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
359 distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your
360 rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies,
361 or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
362 terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
364 9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
365 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
366 distribute the Library or its derivative works. These actions are
367 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
368 modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the
369 Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
370 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
371 the Library or works based on it.
373 10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the
374 Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
375 original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library
376 subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
377 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
378 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with
379 this License.
381 11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
382 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
383 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
384 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
385 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
386 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
387 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
388 may not distribute the Library at all. For example, if a patent
389 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by
390 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
391 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
392 refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.
394 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
395 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
396 apply, and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
397 circumstances.
399 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
400 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
401 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
402 integrity of the free software distribution system which is
403 implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
404 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
405 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
406 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
407 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
408 impose that choice.
410 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
411 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
413 12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in
414 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
415 original copyright holder who places the Library under this License
416 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those
417 countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
418 countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
419 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
421 13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new
422 versions of the Lesser General Public License from time to time.
423 Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version,
424 but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
426 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Library
427 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and
428 "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and
429 conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
430 the Free Software Foundation. If the Library does not specify a
431 license version number, you may choose any version ever published by
432 the Free Software Foundation.
434 14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free
435 programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible with these,
436 write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is
437 copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free
438 Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our
439 decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status
440 of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing
441 and reuse of software generally.
443 NO WARRANTY
445 15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO
446 WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
447 EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
448 OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
449 KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
450 IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
451 PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
452 LIBRARY IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
453 THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
455 16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
456 WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
457 AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
458 FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
459 CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
460 LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
461 RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
462 FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF
463 SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
464 DAMAGES.
466 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
468 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Libraries
470 If you develop a new library, and you want it to be of the greatest
471 possible use to the public, we recommend making it free software that
472 everyone can redistribute and change. You can do so by permitting
473 redistribution under these terms (or, alternatively, under the terms
474 of the ordinary General Public License).
476 To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library.
477 It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most
478 effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should
479 have at least the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full
480 notice is found.
483 <one line to give the library's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
484 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
486 This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
487 modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public
488 License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either
489 version 2.1 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
491 This library is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
492 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
493 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU
494 Lesser General Public License for more details.
496 You should have received a copy of the GNU Lesser General Public
497 License along with this library; if not, write to the Free Software
498 Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
500 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
502 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or
503 your school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the library,
504 if necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
