1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of
the Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided
that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices and
associated disclaimers.
2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
derived from the Public Domain, or those made Freely Available, or
from the Copyright Holder. A Package modified in such a way shall
still be considered the Standard Version.

provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file
stating how and when you changed that file, and provided that you
do at least ONE of the following:
1. place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise
make them Freely Available, such as by posting said
modifications to Usenet or an equivalent medium, or placing
the modifications on a major network archive site allowing
unrestricted access to them, or by allowing the Copyright
Holder to include your modifications in the Standard Version
of the Package.
2. use the modified Package only within your corporation or
3. rename any non-standard executables so the names do not
conflict with standard executables, which must also be
provided, and provide a separate manual page for each
non-standard executable that clearly documents how it differs
from the Standard Version.
4. make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright
5. permit and encourage anyone who receives a copy of the
modified Package permission to make your modifications Freely

Package. If you offer support for this Package, you may charge any
fee you choose for that support. You may not charge a license fee
for the right to use this Package itself. You may distribute this
Package in aggregate with other (possibly commercial and possibly
nonfree) programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial and
possibly nonfree) software distribution, and charge license fees
for other parts of that software distribution, provided that you
do not advertise this Package as a product of your own. If the
Package includes an interpreter, You may embed this Package's
interpreter within an executable of yours (by linking); this shall
be construed as a mere form of aggregation, provided that the
complete Standard Version of the interpreter is so embedded.
6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whoever
generated them, and may be sold commercially, and may be
aggregated with this Package. If such scripts or library files are
aggregated with this Package via the so-called "undump" or
"unexec" methods of producing a binary executable image, then
distribution of such an image shall neither be construed as a
distribution of this Package nor shall it fall under the
restrictions of Paragraphs 3 and 4, provided that you do not
represent such an executable image as a Standard Version of this
7. C subroutines (or comparably compiled subroutines in other
languages) supplied by you and linked into this Package in order
to emulate subroutines and variables of the language defined by
this Package shall not be considered part of this Package, but are
the equivalent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these
subroutines do not change the language in any way that would cause
it to fail the regression tests for the language.
8. Aggregation of the Standard Version of the Package with a
commercial distribution is always permitted provided that the use
of this Package is embedded; that is, when no overt attempt is
made to make this Package's interfaces visible to the end user of
the commercial distribution. Such use shall not be construed as a
distribution of this Package.
9. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or
promote products derived from this software without specific prior
written permission.
