  5			 The "Artistic License"
  6
  7				Preamble
  8
  9The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a
 10Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some
 11semblance of artistic control over the development of the package,
 12while giving the users of the package the right to use and distribute
 13the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make
 14reasonable modifications.
 15
 16Definitions:
 17
 18	"Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
 19	Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
 20	created through textual modification.
 21
 22	"Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been
 23	modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes
 24	of the Copyright Holder as specified below.
 25
 26	"Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
 27	copyrights for the package.
 28
 29	"You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing
 30	this Package.
 31
 32	"Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the
 33	basis of media cost, duplication charges, time of people involved,
 34	and so on.  (You will not be required to justify it to the
 35	Copyright Holder, but only to the computing community at large
 36	as a market that must bear the fee.)
 37
 38	"Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item
 39	itself, though there may be fees involved in handling the item.
 40	It also means that recipients of the item may redistribute it
 41	under the same conditions they received it.
 42
 431. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
 44Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
 45duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.
 46
 472. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
 48derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder.  A Package
 49modified in such a way shall still be considered the Standard Version.
 50
 513. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided
 52that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and
 53when you changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the
 54following:
 55
 56    a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them
 57    Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or
 58    an equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major archive
 59    site such as uunet.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include
 60    your modifications in the Standard Version of the Package.
 61
 62    b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.
 63
 64    c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict
 65    with standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide
 66    a separate manual page for each non-standard executable that clearly
 67    documents how it differs from the Standard Version.
 68
 69    d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
 70
 714. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
 72executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
 73
 74    a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,
 75    together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where
 76    to get the Standard Version.
 77
 78    b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of
 79    the Package with your modifications.
 80
 81    c) give non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
 82    document the differences in manual pages (or equivalent), together
 83    with instructions on where to get the Standard Version.
 84
 85    d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
 86
 875. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this
 88Package.  You may charge any fee you choose for support of this
 89Package.  You may not charge a fee for this Package itself.  However,
 90you may distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly
 91commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial) software
 92distribution provided that you do not advertise this Package as a
 93product of your own.  You may embed this Package's interpreter within
 94an executable of yours (by linking); this shall be construed as a mere
 95form of aggregation, provided that the complete Standard Version of the
 96interpreter is so embedded.
 97
 986. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
 99output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
100under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whoever generated
101them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated with this
102Package.  If such scripts or library files are aggregated with this
103Package via the so-called "undump" or "unexec" methods of producing a
104binary executable image, then distribution of such an image shall
105neither be construed as a distribution of this Package nor shall it
106fall under the restrictions of Paragraphs 3 and 4, provided that you do
107not represent such an executable image as a Standard Version of this
108Package.
109
1107. C subroutines (or comparably compiled subroutines in other
111languages) supplied by you and linked into this Package in order to
112emulate subroutines and variables of the language defined by this
113Package shall not be considered part of this Package, but are the
114equivalent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these subroutines do
115not change the language in any way that would cause it to fail the
116regression tests for the language.
117
1188. Aggregation of this Package with a commercial distribution is always
119permitted provided that the use of this Package is embedded; that is,
120when no overt attempt is made to make this Package's interfaces visible
121to the end user of the commercial distribution.  Such use shall not be
122construed as a distribution of this Package.
123
1249. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote
125products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
126
12710. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
128IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
129WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

131				The End
