8 FXRuby is a library for developing powerful and sophisticated
9 cross-platform graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for your Ruby
10 applications. It’s based on the FOX Toolkit, a popular open source
11 C++ library developed by Jeroen van der Zijp. What that means for you
12 as an application developer is that you’re able to write code in the
13 Ruby programming language that you already know and love, while at the
14 same time taking advantage of the performance and functionality of a
15 featureful, highly optimized C++ toolkit.

32 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
33 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
34
35 [This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also counts
36 as the successor of the GNU Library Public License, version 2, hence
37 the version number 2.1.]
38
39 Preamble
40
41 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
42 freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
43 Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change
44 free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.
45
46 This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some
47 specially designated software packages--typically libraries--of the
48 Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to use it. You
49 can use it too, but we suggest you first think carefully about whether
50 this license or the ordinary General Public License is the better
51 strategy to use in any particular case, based on the explanations below.
52
53 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use,
54 not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that
55 you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge
56 for this service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get
57 it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of
58 it in new free programs; and that you are informed that you can do
59 these things.
60
61 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
62 distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these
63 rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
64 you if you distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.
65
66 For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis
67 or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave
68 you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source
69 code. If you link other code with the library, you must provide
70 complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them
71 with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling
72 it. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
73
74 We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the
75 library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal
76 permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
77
78 To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that
79 there is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the library is
80 modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know
81 that what they have is not the original version, so that the original
82 author's reputation will not be affected by problems that might be
83 introduced by others.
84
85 Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of
86 any free program. We wish to make sure that a company cannot
87 effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a
88 restrictive license from a patent holder. Therefore, we insist that
89 any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be
90 consistent with the full freedom of use specified in this license.
91
92 Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the
93 ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU Lesser
94 General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and
95 is quite different from the ordinary General Public License. We use
96 this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those
97 libraries into non-free programs.
98
99 When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using
100 a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a
101 combined work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary
102 General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the
103 entire combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser General
104 Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with
105 the library.
106
107 We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it
108 does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General
109 Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less
110 of an advantage over competing non-free programs. These disadvantages
111 are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many
112 libraries. However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain
113 special circumstances.
114
115 For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to
116 encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it becomes
117 a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must be
118 allowed to use the library. A more frequent case is that a free
119 library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. In this
120 case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free
121 software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.
122
123 In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free
124 programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of
125 free software. For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in
126 non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU
127 operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating
128 system.
129
130 Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the
131 users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is
132 linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run
133 that program using a modified version of the Library.
134
135 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
136 modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference between a
137 "work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library". The
138 former contains code derived from the library, whereas the latter must
139 be combined with the library in order to run.
140
141 GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
142 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
143
144 0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other
145 program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or
146 other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of
147 this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License").
148 Each licensee is addressed as "you".
149
150 A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data
151 prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs
152 (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
153
154 The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work
155 which has been distributed under these terms. A "work based on the
156 Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under
157 copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a
158 portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
159 straightforwardly into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is
160 included without limitation in the term "modification".)
161
162 "Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for
163 making modifications to it. For a library, complete source code means
164 all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated
165 interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation
166 and installation of the library.
167
168 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
169 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
170 running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from
171 such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based
172 on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for
173 writing it). Whether that is true depends on what the Library does
174 and what the program that uses the Library does.
175
176 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's
177 complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
178 you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
179 appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
180 all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any
181 warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the
182 Library.
183
184 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
185 and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a
186 fee.
187
188 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion
189 of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and
190 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
191 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
192
193 a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
194
195 b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices
196 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
197
198 c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no
199 charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
200
201 d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a
202 table of data to be supplied by an application program that uses
203 the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility
204 is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that,
205 in the event an application does not supply such function or
206 table, the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of
207 its purpose remains meaningful.
208
209 (For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has
210 a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
211 application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
212 application-supplied function or table used by this function must
213 be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square
214 root function must still compute square roots.)
215
216 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
217 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library,
218 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
219 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
220 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
221 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
222 on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
223 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
224 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
225 it.
226
227 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
228 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
229 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
230 collective works based on the Library.
231
232 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library
233 with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of
234 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
235 the scope of this License.
236
237 3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
238 License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library. To do
239 this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
240 that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
241 instead of to this License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the
242 ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
243 that version instead if you wish.) Do not make any other change in
244 these notices.
245
246 Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for
247 that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all
248 subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
249
250 This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of
251 the Library into a program that is not a library.
252
253 4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or
254 derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
255 under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany
256 it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which
257 must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
258 medium customarily used for software interchange.
259
260 If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy
261 from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
262 source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
263 distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
264 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
265
266 5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
267 Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or
268 linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library". Such a
269 work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
270 therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
271
272 However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library
273 creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it
274 contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the
275 library". The executable is therefore covered by this License.
276 Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
277
278 When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file
279 that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a
280 derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.
281 Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be
282 linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library. The
283 threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
284
285 If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
286 structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline
287 functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object
288 file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative
289 work. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the
290 Library will still fall under Section 6.)
291
292 Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
293 distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6.
294 Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6,
295 whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
296
297 6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or
298 link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a
299 work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work
300 under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit
301 modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse
302 engineering for debugging such modifications.
303
304 You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the
305 Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by
306 this License. You must supply a copy of this License. If the work
307 during execution displays copyright notices, you must include the
308 copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference
309 directing the user to the copy of this License. Also, you must do one
310 of these things:
311
312 a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding
313 machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever
314 changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under
315 Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable linked
316 with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work that
317 uses the Library", as object code and/or source code, so that the
318 user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified
319 executable containing the modified Library. (It is understood
320 that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the
321 Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the application
322 to use the modified definitions.)
323
324 b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
325 Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time a
326 copy of the library already present on the user's computer system,
327 rather than copying library functions into the executable, and (2)
328 will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if
329 the user installs one, as long as the modified version is
330 interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with.
331
332 c) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at
333 least three years, to give the same user the materials
334 specified in Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more
335 than the cost of performing this distribution.
336
337 d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy
338 from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the above
339 specified materials from the same place.
340
341 e) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these
342 materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
343
344 For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the
345 Library" must include any data and utility programs needed for
346 reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special exception,
347 the materials to be distributed need not include anything that is
348 normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
349 components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on
350 which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
351 the executable.
352
353 It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
354 restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
355 accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you cannot
356 use both them and the Library together in an executable that you
357 distribute.
358
359 7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
360 Library side-by-side in a single library together with other library
361 facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined
362 library, provided that the separate distribution of the work based on
363 the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise
364 permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
365
366 a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work
367 based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
368 facilities. This must be distributed under the terms of the
369 Sections above.
370
371 b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact
372 that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining
373 where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
374
375 8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute
376 the Library except as expressly provided under this License. Any
377 attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
378 distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your
379 rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies,
380 or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
381 terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
382
383 9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
384 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
385 distribute the Library or its derivative works. These actions are
386 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
387 modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the
388 Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
389 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
390 the Library or works based on it.
391
392 10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the
393 Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
394 original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library
395 subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
396 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
397 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with
398 this License.
399
400 11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
401 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
402 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
403 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
404 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
405 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
406 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
407 may not distribute the Library at all. For example, if a patent
408 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by
409 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
410 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
411 refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.
412
413 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
414 particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply,
415 and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
416
417 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
418 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
419 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
420 integrity of the free software distribution system which is
421 implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
422 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
423 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
424 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
425 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
426 impose that choice.

431 12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in
432 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
433 original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add
434 an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries,
435 so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
436 excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if
437 written in the body of this License.

439 13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new
440 versions of the Lesser General Public License from time to time.

442 but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.

444 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Library
445 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and
446 "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and
447 conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
448 the Free Software Foundation. If the Library does not specify a
449 license version number, you may choose any version ever published by
450 the Free Software Foundation.
451
452 14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free
453 programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible with these,
454 write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is
455 copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free
456 Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our
457 decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status
458 of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing
459 and reuse of software generally.
