    1: 		   GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
    2:                        Version 3, 29 June 2007
    3: 
    4:  Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
    5:  Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
    6:  of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
    7: 
    8: 
    9:   This version of the GNU Lesser General Public License incorporates
   10: the terms and conditions of version 3 of the GNU General Public
   11: License, supplemented by the additional permissions listed below.
   12: 
   13:   0. Additional Definitions. 
   14: 
   15:   As used herein, "this License" refers to version 3 of the GNU Lesser
   16: General Public License, and the "GNU GPL" refers to version 3 of the GNU
   17: General Public License.
   18: 
   19:   "The Library" refers to a covered work governed by this License,
   20: other than an Application or a Combined Work as defined below.
   21: 
   22:   An "Application" is any work that makes use of an interface provided
   23: by the Library, but which is not otherwise based on the Library.
   24: Defining a subclass of a class defined by the Library is deemed a mode
   25: of using an interface provided by the Library.
   26: 
   27:   A "Combined Work" is a work produced by combining or linking an
   28: Application with the Library.  The particular version of the Library
   29: with which the Combined Work was made is also called the "Linked
   30: Version".
   31: 
   32:   The "Minimal Corresponding Source" for a Combined Work means the
   33: Corresponding Source for the Combined Work, excluding any source code
   34: for portions of the Combined Work that, considered in isolation, are
   35: based on the Application, and not on the Linked Version.
   36: 
   37:   The "Corresponding Application Code" for a Combined Work means the
   38: object code and/or source code for the Application, including any data
   39: and utility programs needed for reproducing the Combined Work from the
   40: Application, but excluding the System Libraries of the Combined Work.
   41: 
   42:   1. Exception to Section 3 of the GNU GPL.
   43: 
   44:   You may convey a covered work under sections 3 and 4 of this License
   45: without being bound by section 3 of the GNU GPL.
   46: 
   47:   2. Conveying Modified Versions.
   48: 
   49:   If you modify a copy of the Library, and, in your modifications, a
   50: facility refers to a function or data to be supplied by an Application
   51: that uses the facility (other than as an argument passed when the
   52: facility is invoked), then you may convey a copy of the modified
   53: version:
   54: 
   55:    a) under this License, provided that you make a good faith effort to
   56:    ensure that, in the event an Application does not supply the
   57:    function or data, the facility still operates, and performs
   58:    whatever part of its purpose remains meaningful, or
   59: 
   60:    b) under the GNU GPL, with none of the additional permissions of
   61:    this License applicable to that copy.
   62: 
   63:   3. Object Code Incorporating Material from Library Header Files.
   64: 
   65:   The object code form of an Application may incorporate material from
   66: a header file that is part of the Library.  You may convey such object
   67: code under terms of your choice, provided that, if the incorporated
   68: material is not limited to numerical parameters, data structure
   69: layouts and accessors, or small macros, inline functions and templates
   70: (ten or fewer lines in length), you do both of the following:
   71: 
   72:    a) Give prominent notice with each copy of the object code that the
   73:    Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are
   74:    covered by this License.
   75: 
   76:    b) Accompany the object code with a copy of the GNU GPL and this license
   77:    document.
   78: 
   79:   4. Combined Works.
   80: 
   81:   You may convey a Combined Work under terms of your choice that,
   82: taken together, effectively do not restrict modification of the
   83: portions of the Library contained in the Combined Work and reverse
   84: engineering for debugging such modifications, if you also do each of
   85: the following:
   86: 
   87:    a) Give prominent notice with each copy of the Combined Work that
   88:    the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are
   89:    covered by this License.
   90: 
   91:    b) Accompany the Combined Work with a copy of the GNU GPL and this license
   92:    document.
   93: 
   94:    c) For a Combined Work that displays copyright notices during
   95:    execution, include the copyright notice for the Library among
   96:    these notices, as well as a reference directing the user to the
   97:    copies of the GNU GPL and this license document.
   98: 
   99:    d) Do one of the following:
  100: 
  101:        0) Convey the Minimal Corresponding Source under the terms of this
  102:        License, and the Corresponding Application Code in a form
  103:        suitable for, and under terms that permit, the user to
  104:        recombine or relink the Application with a modified version of
  105:        the Linked Version to produce a modified Combined Work, in the
  106:        manner specified by section 6 of the GNU GPL for conveying
  107:        Corresponding Source.
  108: 
  109:        1) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
  110:        Library.  A suitable mechanism is one that (a) uses at run time
  111:        a copy of the Library already present on the user's computer
  112:        system, and (b) will operate properly with a modified version
  113:        of the Library that is interface-compatible with the Linked
  114:        Version. 
  115: 
  116:    e) Provide Installation Information, but only if you would otherwise
  117:    be required to provide such information under section 6 of the
  118:    GNU GPL, and only to the extent that such information is
  119:    necessary to install and execute a modified version of the
  120:    Combined Work produced by recombining or relinking the
  121:    Application with a modified version of the Linked Version. (If
  122:    you use option 4d0, the Installation Information must accompany
  123:    the Minimal Corresponding Source and Corresponding Application
  124:    Code. If you use option 4d1, you must provide the Installation
  125:    Information in the manner specified by section 6 of the GNU GPL
  126:    for conveying Corresponding Source.)
  127: 
  128:   5. Combined Libraries.
  129: 
  130:   You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
  131: Library side by side in a single library together with other library
  132: facilities that are not Applications and are not covered by this
  133: License, and convey such a combined library under terms of your
  134: choice, if you do both of the following:
  135: 
  136:    a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work based
  137:    on the Library, uncombined with any other library facilities,
  138:    conveyed under the terms of this License.
  139: 
  140:    b) Give prominent notice with the combined library that part of it
  141:    is a work based on the Library, and explaining where to find the
  142:    accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
  143: 
  144:   6. Revised Versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License.
  145: 
  146:   The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
  147: of the GNU Lesser General Public License from time to time. Such new
  148: versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may
  149: differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
  150: 
  151:   Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
  152: Library as you received it specifies that a certain numbered version
  153: of the GNU Lesser General Public License "or any later version"
  154: applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and
  155: conditions either of that published version or of any later version
  156: published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Library as you
  157: received it does not specify a version number of the GNU Lesser
  158: General Public License, you may choose any version of the GNU Lesser
  159: General Public License ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
  160: 
  161:   If the Library as you received it specifies that a proxy can decide
  162: whether future versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License shall
  163: apply, that proxy's public statement of acceptance of any version is
  164: permanent authorization for you to choose that version for the
  165: Library.
