+The GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL)

+Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
+of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
+[This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also
+counts as the successor of the GNU Library Public License,
+version 2, hence the version number 2.1.]
+The licenses for most software are designed to take away
+your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU
+General Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your
+freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the
+software is free for all its users.
+This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to
+some specially designated software packages--typically
+libraries--of the Free Software Foundation and other authors
+who decide to use it. You can use it too, but we suggest you
+first think carefully about whether this license or the ordinary
+General Public License is the better strategy to use in any
+particular case, based on the explanations below.
+When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom
+of use, 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 and use pieces of it in new free
+programs; and that you are informed that you can do these
+To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that
+forbid distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to
+surrender these rights. These restrictions translate to certain
+responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the library
+or if you modify it.
+For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether
+gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights
+that we gave you. You must make sure that they, too,
+receive or can get the source code. If you link other code
+with the library, you must provide complete object files to the
+recipients, so that they can relink them with the library after
+making changes to the library and recompiling it. And you
+must show them these terms so they know their rights.
+We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we
+copyright the library, and (2) we offer you this license, which
+gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify
+the library.
+To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear
+that there is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the
+library is modified by someone else and passed on, the
+recipients should know that what they have is not the original
+version, so that the original author's reputation will not be
+affected by problems that might be introduced by others.
+Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the
+existence of any free program. We wish to make sure that a
+company cannot effectively restrict the users of a free
+program by obtaining a restrictive license from a patent
+holder. Therefore, we insist that any patent license obtained
+for a version of the library must be consistent with the full
+freedom of use specified in this license.
+Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by
+the ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the
+GNU Lesser General Public License, applies to certain
+designated libraries, and is quite different from the ordinary
+General Public License. We use this license for certain
+libraries in order to permit linking those libraries into non-free
+When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or
+using a shared library, the combination of the two is legally
+speaking a combined work, a derivative of the original library.
+The ordinary General Public License therefore permits such
+linking only if the entire combination fits its criteria of
+freedom. The Lesser General Public License permits more
+lax criteria for linking other code with the library.
+We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License
+because it does Less to protect the user's freedom than the
+ordinary General Public License. It also provides other free
+software developers Less of an advantage over competing
+non-free programs. These disadvantages are the reason we
+use the ordinary General Public License for many libraries.
+However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain
+special circumstances.
+For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special
+need to encourage the widest possible use of a certain
+library, so that it becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve
+this, non-free programs must be allowed to use the library. A
+more frequent case is that a free library does the same job
+as widely used non-free libraries. In this case, there is little
+to gain by limiting the free library to free software only, so we
+use the Lesser General Public License.
+In other cases, permission to use a particular library in
+non-free programs enables a greater number of people to use
+a large body of free software. For example, permission to
+use the GNU C Library in non-free programs enables many
+more people to use the whole GNU operating system, as
+well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating system.
+Although the Lesser General Public License is Less
+protective of the users' freedom, it does ensure that the user
+of a program that is linked with the Library has the freedom
+and the wherewithal to run that program using a modified
+version of the Library.
+The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution
+and modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference
+between a "work based on the library" and a "work that uses
+the library". The former contains code derived from the
+library, whereas the latter must be combined with the library
+in order to run.
+0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or
+other program which contains a notice placed by the
+copyright holder or other authorized party saying it may be
+distributed under the terms of this Lesser General Public
+License (also called "this License"). Each licensee is
+addressed as "you".
+A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or
+data prepared so as to be conveniently linked with
+application programs (which use some of those functions
+and data) to form executables.
+The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or
+work which has been distributed under these terms. A "work
+based on the Library" means either the Library or any
+derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
+containing the Library or a portion of it, either verbatim or with
+modifications and/or translated straightforwardly into another
+language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without
+limitation in the term "modification".)
+"Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the
+work for making modifications to it. For a library, 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
+Activities other than copying, distribution and modification
+are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope.
+The act of running a program using the Library is not
+restricted, and output from such a program is covered only if
+its contents constitute a work based on the Library
+(independent of the use of the Library in a tool for writing it).
+Whether that is true depends on what the Library does and
+what the program that uses the Library does.
+1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the
+Library's complete 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
+distribute a copy of this License along with the Library.
+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 Library or any
+portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, 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) The modified work must itself be a software
+ library.
+ b) You must cause the files modified to carry
+ prominent notices stating that you changed the
+ files and the date of any change.
+ c) You must cause the whole of the work to be
+ licensed at no charge to all third parties under
+ the terms of this License.
+ d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a
+ function or a table of data to be supplied by an
+ application program that uses the facility, other
+ than as an argument passed when the facility
+ is invoked, then you must make a good faith
+ effort to ensure that, in the event an application
+ does not supply such function or table, the
+ facility still operates, and performs whatever
+ part of its purpose remains meaningful.
+ (For example, a function in a library to
+ compute square roots has a purpose that is
+ entirely well-defined independent of the
+ application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires
+ that any application-supplied function or table
+ used by this function must be optional: if the
+ application does not supply it, the square root
+ function must still compute square roots.)
+ These requirements apply to the modified work
+ as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work
+ are not derived from the Library, 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 Library, 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 Library.
+ In addition, mere aggregation of another work
+ not based on the Library with the Library (or
+ with a work based on the Library) on a volume
+ of a storage or distribution medium does not
+ bring the other work under the scope of this
+ License.
+3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU
+General Public License instead of this License to a given
+copy of the Library. To do this, you must alter all the notices
+that refer to this License, so that they refer to the ordinary
+GNU General Public License, version 2, instead of to this
+License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the ordinary
+GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can
+specify that version instead if you wish.) Do not make any
+other change in these notices.
+Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible
+for that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License
+applies to all subsequent copies and derivative works made
+from that copy.
+This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code
+of the Library into a program that is not a library.
+4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or
+derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable
+form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that
+you 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.
+If distribution of 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
+satisfies the requirement to distribute the source code, even
+though third parties are not compelled to copy the source
+along with the object code.
+5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
+Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being
+compiled or linked with it, is called a "work that uses the
+Library". Such a work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of
+the Library, and therefore falls outside the scope of this
+However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the
+Library creates an executable that is a derivative of the
+Library (because it contains portions of the Library), rather
+than a "work that uses the library". The executable is
+therefore covered by this License. Section 6 states terms for
+distribution of such executables.
+When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a
+header file that is part of the Library, the object code for the
+work may be a derivative work of the Library even though the
+source code is not. Whether this is true is especially
+significant if the work can be linked without the Library, or if
+the work is itself a library. The threshold for this to be true is
+not precisely defined by law.
+If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
+structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and
+small inline functions (ten lines or less in length), then the
+use of the object file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it
+is legally a derivative work. (Executables containing this
+object code plus portions of the Library will still fall under
+Section 6.)
+Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
+distribute the object code for the work under the terms of
+Section 6. Any executables containing that work also fall
+under Section 6, whether or not they are linked directly with
+the Library itself.
+6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also
+combine or link a "work that uses the Library" with the
+Library to produce a work containing portions of the Library,
+and distribute that work under terms of your choice, provided
+that the terms permit modification of the work for the
+customer's own use and reverse engineering for debugging
+such modifications.
+You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work
+that the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use
+are covered by this License. You must supply a copy of this
+License. If the work during execution displays copyright
+notices, you must include the copyright notice for the Library
+among them, as well as a reference directing the user to the
+copy of this License. Also, you must do one of these things:
+ a) Accompany the work with the complete
+ corresponding machine-readable source code
+ for the Library including whatever changes were
+ used in the work (which must be distributed
+ under Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work
+ is an executable linked with the Library, with
+ the complete machine-readable "work that
+ uses the Library", as object code and/or
+ source code, so that the user can modify the
+ Library and then relink to produce a modified
+ executable containing the modified Library. (It
+ is understood that the user who changes the
+ contents of definitions files in the Library will
+ not necessarily be able to recompile the
+ application to use the modified definitions.)
+ b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for
+ linking with the Library. A suitable mechanism
+ is one that (1) uses at run time a copy of the
+ library already present on the user's computer
+ system, rather than copying library functions
+ into the executable, and (2) will operate
+ properly with a modified version of the library, if
+ the user installs one, as long as the modified
+ version is interface-compatible with the version
+ that the work was made with.
+ c) Accompany the work with a written offer,
+ valid for at least three years, to give the same
+ user the materials specified in Subsection 6a,
+ above, for a charge no more than the cost of
+ performing this distribution.
+ d) If distribution of the work is made by offering
+ access to copy from a designated place, offer
+ equivalent access to copy the above specified
+ materials from the same place.
+ e) Verify that the user has already received a
+ copy of these materials or that you have
+ already sent this user a copy.
+For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses
+the Library" must include any data and utility programs
+needed for reproducing the executable from it. However, as a
+special exception, the materials to be 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
+It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
+restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
+accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction
+means you cannot use both them and the Library together in
+an executable that you distribute.
+7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on
+the Library side-by-side in a single library together with other
+library facilities not covered by this License, and distribute
+such a combined library, provided that the separate
+distribution of the work based on the Library and of the other
+library facilities is otherwise permitted, and provided that you
+do these two things:
+ a) Accompany the combined library with a
+ copy of the same work based on the Library,
+ uncombined with any other library facilities.
+ This must be distributed under the terms of the
+ Sections above.
+ b) Give prominent notice with the combined
+ library of the fact that part of it is a work based
+ on the Library, and explaining where to find the
+ accompanying uncombined form of the same
+ work.
+8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
+distribute the Library except as expressly provided under this
+License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense,
+link with, or distribute the Library 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.
+9. 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 Library or its derivative
+works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not
+accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing
+the Library (or any work based on the Library), you indicate
+your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms
+and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
+Library or works based on it.
+10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work
+based on the Library), the recipient automatically receives a
+license from the original licensor to copy, distribute, link with
+or modify the Library 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 with this
+11. 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 Library at all. For example, if a
+patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of
+the Library 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 Library.
+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.
+12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in
+certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted
+interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the
+Library 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.
+13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised
+and/or new versions of the Lesser 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
+Library 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 Library does not specify a license version number, you
+may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
+14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other
+free programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible
+with these, 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.
