           Contributor Version) or other devices; or (3) under Patent
           Claims infringed by Covered Software in the absence of
           Modifications made by that Contributor.


3. Distribution Obligations.


   3.1. Availability of Source Code.


   Any Covered Software that You distribute or otherwise make
   available in Executable form must also be made available in Source
   Code form and that Source Code form must be distributed only under
   the terms of this License.  You must include a copy of this
   License with every copy of the Source Code form of the Covered
   Software You distribute or otherwise make available.  You must
   inform recipients of any such Covered Software in Executable form
   as to how they can obtain such Covered Software in Source Code
   form in a reasonable manner on or through a medium customarily
   used for software exchange.


   3.2. Modifications.


   The Modifications that You create or to which You contribute are
   governed by the terms of this License.  You represent that You
   believe Your Modifications are Your original creation(s) and/or
   You have sufficient rights to grant the rights conveyed by this
   License.


   3.3. Required Notices.


   You must include a notice in each of Your Modifications that
   identifies You as the Contributor of the Modification.  You may
   not remove or alter any copyright, patent or trademark notices
   contained within the Covered Software, or any notices of licensing
   or any descriptive text giving attribution to any Contributor or
   the Initial Developer.


   3.4. Application of Additional Terms.


   You may not offer or impose any terms on any Covered Software in
   Source Code form that alters or restricts the applicable version
   of this License or the recipients' rights hereunder.  You may
   choose to offer, and to charge a fee for, warranty, support,
   indemnity or liability obligations to one or more recipients of
   Covered Software.  However, you may do so only on Your own behalf,
   and not on behalf of the Initial Developer or any Contributor.
   You must make it absolutely clear that any such warranty, support,
   indemnity or liability obligation is offered by You alone, and You
   hereby agree to indemnify the Initial Developer and every
   Contributor for any liability incurred by the Initial Developer or
   such Contributor as a result of warranty, support, indemnity or
   liability terms You offer.


   3.5. Distribution of Executable Versions.


   You may distribute the Executable form of the Covered Software
   under the terms of this License or under the terms of a license of
   Your choice, which may contain terms different from this License,
   provided that You are in compliance with the terms of this License
   and that the license for the Executable form does not attempt to
   limit or alter the recipient's rights in the Source Code form from
   the rights set forth in this License.  If You distribute the
   Covered Software in Executable form under a different license, You
   must make it absolutely clear that any terms which differ from
   this License are offered by You alone, not by the Initial
   Developer or Contributor.  You hereby agree to indemnify the
   Initial Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred
   by the Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of any
   such terms You offer.


   3.6. Larger Works.


   You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered Software with
   other code not governed by the terms of this License and
   distribute the Larger Work as a single product.  In such a case,
   You must make sure the requirements of this License are fulfilled
   for the Covered Software.


4. Versions of the License.


   4.1. New Versions.


   Sun Microsystems, Inc. is the initial license steward and may
   publish revised and/or new versions of this License from time to
   time.  Each version will be given a distinguishing version number.
   Except as provided in Section 4.3, no one other than the license
   steward has the right to modify this License.


   4.2. Effect of New Versions.


   You may always continue to use, distribute or otherwise make the
   Covered Software available under the terms of the version of the
   License under which You originally received the Covered Software.
   If the Initial Developer includes a notice in the Original
   Software prohibiting it from being distributed or otherwise made
   available under any subsequent version of the License, You must
   distribute and make the Covered Software available under the terms
   of the version of the License under which You originally received
   the Covered Software.  Otherwise, You may also choose to use,
   distribute or otherwise make the Covered Software available under
   the terms of any subsequent version of the License published by
   the license steward.


   4.3. Modified Versions.


   When You are an Initial Developer and You want to create a new
   license for Your Original Software, You may create and use a
   modified version of this License if You: (a) rename the license
   and remove any references to the name of the license steward
   (except to note that the license differs from this License); and
   (b) otherwise make it clear that the license contains terms which
   differ from this License.


5. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY.


   COVERED SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED UNDER THIS LICENSE ON AN "AS IS"
   BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
   INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES THAT THE COVERED
   SOFTWARE IS FREE OF DEFECTS, MERCHANTABLE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR
   PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGING.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND
   PERFORMANCE OF THE COVERED SOFTWARE IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD ANY
   COVERED SOFTWARE PROVE DEFECTIVE IN ANY RESPECT, YOU (NOT THE
   INITIAL DEVELOPER OR ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR) ASSUME THE COST OF ANY
   NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.  THIS DISCLAIMER OF
   WARRANTY CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS LICENSE.  NO USE OF
   ANY COVERED SOFTWARE IS AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER THIS
   DISCLAIMER.


6. TERMINATION.


   6.1. This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate
   automatically if You fail to comply with terms herein and fail to
   cure such breach within 30 days of becoming aware of the breach.
   Provisions which, by their nature, must remain in effect beyond
   the termination of this License shall survive.


   6.2. If You assert a patent infringement claim (excluding
   declaratory judgment actions) against Initial Developer or a
   Contributor (the Initial Developer or Contributor against whom You
   assert such claim is referred to as "Participant") alleging that
   the Participant Software (meaning the Contributor Version where
   the Participant is a Contributor or the Original Software where
   the Participant is the Initial Developer) directly or indirectly
   infringes any patent, then any and all rights granted directly or
   indirectly to You by such Participant, the Initial Developer (if
   the Initial Developer is not the Participant) and all Contributors
   under Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 of this License shall, upon 60 days
   notice from Participant terminate prospectively and automatically
   at the expiration of such 60 day notice period, unless if within
   such 60 day period You withdraw Your claim with respect to the
   Participant Software against such Participant either unilaterally
   or pursuant to a written agreement with Participant.


   6.3. In the event of termination under Sections 6.1 or 6.2 above,
   all end user licenses that have been validly granted by You or any
   distributor hereunder prior to termination (excluding licenses
   granted to You by any distributor) shall survive termination.


7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.


   UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER TORT
   (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL YOU, THE
   INITIAL DEVELOPER, ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR, OR ANY DISTRIBUTOR OF
   COVERED SOFTWARE, OR ANY SUPPLIER OF ANY OF SUCH PARTIES, BE
   LIABLE TO ANY PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR
   CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER INCLUDING, WITHOUT
   LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK
   STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER
   COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY SHALL HAVE BEEN
   INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  THIS LIMITATION OF
   LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL
   INJURY RESULTING FROM SUCH PARTY'S NEGLIGENCE TO THE EXTENT
   APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS SUCH LIMITATION.  SOME JURISDICTIONS DO
   NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
   CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY NOT
   APPLY TO YOU.


8. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS.


   The Covered Software is a "commercial item," as that term is
   defined in 48 C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of "commercial
   computer software" (as that term is defined at 48
   C.F.R. 252.227-7014(a)(1)) and "commercial computer software
   documentation" as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212
   (Sept. 1995).  Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48
   C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 (June 1995), all
   U.S. Government End Users acquire Covered Software with only those
   rights set forth herein.  This U.S. Government Rights clause is in
   lieu of, and supersedes, any other FAR, DFAR, or other clause or
   provision that addresses Government rights in computer software
   under this License.


9. MISCELLANEOUS.


   This License represents the complete agreement concerning subject
   matter hereof.  If any provision of this License is held to be
   unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent
   necessary to make it enforceable.  This License shall be governed
   by the law of the jurisdiction specified in a notice contained
   within the Original Software (except to the extent applicable law,
   if any, provides otherwise), excluding such jurisdiction's
   conflict-of-law provisions.  Any litigation relating to this
   License shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts located
   in the jurisdiction and venue specified in a notice contained
   within the Original Software, with the losing party responsible
   for costs, including, without limitation, court costs and
   reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses.  The application of the
   United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale
   of Goods is expressly excluded.  Any law or regulation which
   provides that the language of a contract shall be construed
   against the drafter shall not apply to this License.  You agree
   that You alone are responsible for compliance with the United
   States export administration regulations (and the export control
   laws and regulation of any other countries) when You use,
   distribute or otherwise make available any Covered Software.


10. RESPONSIBILITY FOR CLAIMS.


   As between Initial Developer and the Contributors, each party is
   responsible for claims and damages arising, directly or
   indirectly, out of its utilization of rights under this License
   and You agree to work with Initial Developer and Contributors to
   distribute such responsibility on an equitable basis.  Nothing
   herein is intended or shall be deemed to constitute any admission
   of liability.

GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE


Version 2.1, February 1999


Copyright (C) 1991, 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA

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.]


Preamble


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 things.


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 programs.


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.


TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION


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 library.


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 License.


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 executable.


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 License.


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

Foundation.


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.


NO WARRANTY


15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY

FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE

EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN

WRITING THE COPYRIGHT

HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "AS IS" WITHOUT

WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER

EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED

WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY

AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY

AND PERFORMANCE OF THE

LIBRARY IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE

COST OF ALL NECESSARY

SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.



16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN

WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT

HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE

LIBRARY AS PERMITTED

ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL,

INCIDENTAL OR

CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE

LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT

NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES

SUSTAINED BY YOU OR

THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER

SOFTWARE), EVEN IF SUCH

HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.


END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS


How to Apply These Terms to Your New Libraries


If you develop a new library, and you want it to be of the greatest

possible use to the public, we recommend

making it free software that everyone can redistribute and change. You

can do so by permitting

redistribution under these terms (or, alternatively, under the terms of

the ordinary General Public License).


To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library. It is

safest to attach them to the start of each

source file to most effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and

each file should have at least the

"copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.


one line to give the library's name and an idea of what it does.

Copyright (C) year name of author


This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or

modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public

License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either

version 2.1 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.


This library is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,

but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of

MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU

Lesser General Public License for more details.


You should have received a copy of the GNU Lesser General Public

License along with this library; if not, write to the Free Software

Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA


Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.


You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your

school, if any, to sign a "copyright

disclaimer" for the library, if necessary. Here is a sample; alter the

names:


Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in

the library `Frob' (a library for tweaking knobs) written

by James Random Hacker.
