     1.4 +			The "Artistic License"
     1.5 +
     1.6 +				Preamble
     1.7 +
     1.8 +The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a
     1.9 +Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some
    1.10 +semblance of artistic control over the development of the package,
    1.11 +while giving the users of the package the right to use and distribute
    1.12 +the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make
    1.13 +reasonable modifications.
    1.14 +
    1.15 +Definitions:
    1.16 +
    1.17 +	"Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
    1.18 +	Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
    1.19 +	created through textual modification.
    1.20 +
    1.21 +	"Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been
    1.22 +	modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes
    1.23 +	of the Copyright Holder as specified below.
    1.24 +
    1.25 +	"Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
    1.26 +	copyrights for the package.
    1.27 +
    1.28 +	"You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing
    1.29 +	this Package.
    1.30 +
    1.31 +	"Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the
    1.32 +	basis of media cost, duplication charges, time of people involved,
    1.33 +	and so on.  (You will not be required to justify it to the
    1.34 +	Copyright Holder, but only to the computing community at large
    1.35 +	as a market that must bear the fee.)
    1.36 +
    1.37 +	"Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item
    1.38 +	itself, though there may be fees involved in handling the item.
    1.39 +	It also means that recipients of the item may redistribute it
    1.40 +	under the same conditions they received it.
    1.41 +
    1.42 +1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
    1.43 +Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
    1.44 +duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.
    1.45 +
    1.46 +2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
    1.47 +derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder.  A Package
    1.48 +modified in such a way shall still be considered the Standard Version.
    1.49 +
    1.50 +3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided
    1.51 +that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and
    1.52 +when you changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the
    1.53 +following:
    1.54 +
    1.55 +    a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them
    1.56 +    Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or
    1.57 +    an equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major archive
    1.58 +    site such as uunet.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include
    1.59 +    your modifications in the Standard Version of the Package.
    1.60 +
    1.61 +    b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.
    1.62 +
    1.63 +    c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict
    1.64 +    with standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide
    1.65 +    a separate manual page for each non-standard executable that clearly
    1.66 +    documents how it differs from the Standard Version.
    1.67 +
    1.68 +    d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
    1.69 +
    1.70 +4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
    1.71 +executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
    1.72 +
    1.73 +    a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,
    1.74 +    together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where
    1.75 +    to get the Standard Version.
    1.76 +
    1.77 +    b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of
    1.78 +    the Package with your modifications.
    1.79 +
    1.80 +    c) give non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
    1.81 +    document the differences in manual pages (or equivalent), together
    1.82 +    with instructions on where to get the Standard Version.
    1.83 +
    1.84 +    d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
    1.85 +
    1.86 +5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this
    1.87 +Package.  You may charge any fee you choose for support of this
    1.88 +Package.  You may not charge a fee for this Package itself.  However,
    1.89 +you may distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly
    1.90 +commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial) software
    1.91 +distribution provided that you do not advertise this Package as a
    1.92 +product of your own.  You may embed this Package's interpreter within
    1.93 +an executable of yours (by linking); this shall be construed as a mere
    1.94 +form of aggregation, provided that the complete Standard Version of the
    1.95 +interpreter is so embedded.
    1.96 +
    1.97 +6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
    1.98 +output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
    1.99 +under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whoever generated
   1.100 +them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated with this
   1.101 +Package.  If such scripts or library files are aggregated with this
   1.102 +Package via the so-called "undump" or "unexec" methods of producing a
   1.103 +binary executable image, then distribution of such an image shall
   1.104 +neither be construed as a distribution of this Package nor shall it
   1.105 +fall under the restrictions of Paragraphs 3 and 4, provided that you do
   1.106 +not represent such an executable image as a Standard Version of this
   1.107 +Package.
   1.108 +
   1.109 +7. C subroutines (or comparably compiled subroutines in other
   1.110 +languages) supplied by you and linked into this Package in order to
   1.111 +emulate subroutines and variables of the language defined by this
   1.112 +Package shall not be considered part of this Package, but are the
   1.113 +equivalent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these subroutines do
   1.114 +not change the language in any way that would cause it to fail the
   1.115 +regression tests for the language.
   1.116 +
   1.117 +8. Aggregation of this Package with a commercial distribution is always
   1.118 +permitted provided that the use of this Package is embedded; that is,
   1.119 +when no overt attempt is made to make this Package's interfaces visible
   1.120 +to the end user of the commercial distribution.  Such use shall not be
   1.121 +construed as a distribution of this Package.
   1.122 +
   1.123 +9. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote
   1.124 +products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
   1.125 +
   1.126 +10. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
   1.127 +IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
   1.128 +WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
