43 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
44 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
49The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other
50written document "free" in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone
51the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without
52modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially.  Secondarily,
53this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get
54credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for
55modifications made by others.
57This License is a kind of "copyleft", which means that derivative
58works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense.  It
59complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft
60license designed for free software.
62We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free
63software, because free software needs free documentation: a free
64program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the
65software does.  But this License is not limited to software manuals;
66it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or
67whether it is published as a printed book.  We recommend this License
68principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.
73This License applies to any manual or other work that contains a
74notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be distributed
75under the terms of this License.  The "Document", below, refers to any
76such manual or work.  Any member of the public is a licensee, and is
77addressed as "you".
79A "Modified Version" of the Document means any work containing the
80Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with
81modifications and/or translated into another language.
83A "Secondary Section" is a named appendix or a front-matter section of
84the Document that deals exclusively with the relationship of the
85publishers or authors of the Document to the Document's overall subject
86(or to related matters) and contains nothing that could fall directly
87within that overall subject.  (For example, if the Document is in part a
88textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any
89mathematics.)  The relationship could be a matter of historical
90connection with the subject or with related matters, or of legal,
91commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding
94The "Invariant Sections" are certain Secondary Sections whose titles
95are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice
96that says that the Document is released under this License.
98The "Cover Texts" are certain short passages of text that are listed,
99as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that
100the Document is released under this License.
102A "Transparent" copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy,
103represented in a format whose specification is available to the
104general public, whose contents can be viewed and edited directly and
105straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for images composed of
106pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available
107drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or
108for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input
109to text formatters.  A copy made in an otherwise Transparent file
110format whose markup has been designed to thwart or discourage
111subsequent modification by readers is not Transparent.  A copy that is
112not "Transparent" is called "Opaque".
114Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain
115ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input format, SGML
116or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standard-conforming simple
117HTML designed for human modification.  Opaque formats include
118PostScript, PDF, proprietary formats that can be read and edited only
119by proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or
120processing tools are not generally available, and the
121machine-generated HTML produced by some word processors for output
122purposes only.
124The "Title Page" means, for a printed book, the title page itself,
125plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material
126this License requires to appear in the title page.  For works in
127formats which do not have any title page as such, "Title Page" means
128the text near the most prominent appearance of the work's title,
129preceding the beginning of the body of the text.
134You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either
135commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the
136copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies
137to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other
138conditions whatsoever to those of this License.  You may not use
139technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further
140copying of the copies you make or distribute.  However, you may accept
141compensation in exchange for copies.  If you distribute a large enough
142number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3.
144You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and
145you may publicly display copies.
150If you publish printed copies of the Document numbering more than 100,
151and the Document's license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose
152the copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover
153Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on
154the back cover.  Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify
155you as the publisher of these copies.  The front cover must present
156the full title with all words of the title equally prominent and
157visible.  You may add other material on the covers in addition.
158Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve
159the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated
160as verbatim copying in other respects.
162If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to fit
163legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit
164reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent
167If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering
168more than 100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent
169copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy
170a publicly-accessible computer-network location containing a complete
171Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material, which the
172general network-using public has access to download anonymously at no
173charge using public-standard network protocols.  If you use the latter
174option, you must take reasonably prudent steps, when you begin
175distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that this
176Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated location
177until at least one year after the last time you distribute an Opaque
178copy (directly or through your agents or retailers) of that edition to
179the public.
181It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the
182Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give
183them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.
188You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document under
189the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release
190the Modified Version under precisely this License, with the Modified
191Version filling the role of the Document, thus licensing distribution
192and modification of the Modified Version to whoever possesses a copy
193of it.  In addition, you must do these things in the Modified Version:
195A. Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct
196   from that of the Document, and from those of previous versions
197   (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section
198   of the Document).  You may use the same title as a previous version
199   if the original publisher of that version gives permission.
200B. List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities
201   responsible for authorship of the modifications in the Modified
202   Version, together with at least five of the principal authors of the
203   Document (all of its principal authors, if it has less than five).
204C. State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the
205   Modified Version, as the publisher.
206D. Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.
207E. Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modifications
208   adjacent to the other copyright notices.
209F. Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice
210   giving the public permission to use the Modified Version under the
211   terms of this License, in the form shown in the Addendum below.
212G. Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections
213   and required Cover Texts given in the Document's license notice.
214H. Include an unaltered copy of this License.
215I. Preserve the section entitled "History", and its title, and add to
216   it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors, and
217   publisher of the Modified Version as given on the Title Page.  If
218   there is no section entitled "History" in the Document, create one
219   stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as
220   given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modified
221   Version as stated in the previous sentence.
222J. Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for
223   public access to a Transparent copy of the Document, and likewise
224   the network locations given in the Document for previous versions
225   it was based on.  These may be placed in the "History" section.
226   You may omit a network location for a work that was published at
227   least four years before the Document itself, or if the original
228   publisher of the version it refers to gives permission.
229K. In any section entitled "Acknowledgements" or "Dedications",
230   preserve the section's title, and preserve in the section all the
231   substance and tone of each of the contributor acknowledgements
232   and/or dedications given therein.
233L. Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document,
234   unaltered in their text and in their titles.  Section numbers
235   or the equivalent are not considered part of the section titles.
236M. Delete any section entitled "Endorsements".  Such a section
237   may not be included in the Modified Version.
238N. Do not retitle any existing section as "Endorsements"
239   or to conflict in title with any Invariant Section.
241If the Modified Version includes new front-matter sections or
242appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no material
243copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or all
244of these sections as invariant.  To do this, add their titles to the
245list of Invariant Sections in the Modified Version's license notice.
246These titles must be distinct from any other section titles.
248You may add a section entitled "Endorsements", provided it contains
249nothing but endorsements of your Modified Version by various
250parties--for example, statements of peer review or that the text has
251been approved by an organization as the authoritative definition of a
254You may add a passage of up to five words as a Front-Cover Text, and a
255passage of up to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to the end of the list
256of Cover Texts in the Modified Version.  Only one passage of
257Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text may be added by (or
258through arrangements made by) any one entity.  If the Document already
259includes a cover text for the same cover, previously added by you or
260by arrangement made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of,
261you may not add another; but you may replace the old one, on explicit
262permission from the previous publisher that added the old one.
264The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License
265give permission to use their names for publicity for or to assert or
266imply endorsement of any Modified Version.
271You may combine the Document with other documents released under this
272License, under the terms defined in section 4 above for modified
273versions, provided that you include in the combination all of the
274Invariant Sections of all of the original documents, unmodified, and
275list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in its
276license notice.
278The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and
279multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single
280copy.  If there are multiple Invariant Sections with the same name but
281different contents, make the title of each such section unique by
282adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original
283author or publisher of that section if known, or else a unique number.
284Make the same adjustment to the section titles in the list of
285Invariant Sections in the license notice of the combined work.
287In the combination, you must combine any sections entitled "History"
288in the various original documents, forming one section entitled
289"History"; likewise combine any sections entitled "Acknowledgements",
290and any sections entitled "Dedications".  You must delete all sections
291entitled "Endorsements."
296You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents
297released under this License, and replace the individual copies of this
298License in the various documents with a single copy that is included in
299the collection, provided that you follow the rules of this License for
300verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other respects.
302You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute
303it individually under this License, provided you insert a copy of this
304License into the extracted document, and follow this License in all
305other respects regarding verbatim copying of that document.
310A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate
311and independent documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or
312distribution medium, does not as a whole count as a Modified Version
313of the Document, provided no compilation copyright is claimed for the
314compilation.  Such a compilation is called an "aggregate", and this
315License does not apply to the other self-contained works thus compiled
316with the Document, on account of their being thus compiled, if they
317are not themselves derivative works of the Document.
319If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these
320copies of the Document, then if the Document is less than one quarter
321of the entire aggregate, the Document's Cover Texts may be placed on
322covers that surround only the Document within the aggregate.
323Otherwise they must appear on covers around the whole aggregate.
328Translation is considered a kind of modification, so you may
329distribute translations of the Document under the terms of section 4.
330Replacing Invariant Sections with translations requires special
331permission from their copyright holders, but you may include
332translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the
333original versions of these Invariant Sections.  You may include a
334translation of this License provided that you also include the
335original English version of this License.  In case of a disagreement
336between the translation and the original English version of this
337License, the original English version will prevail.
342You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except
343as expressly provided for under this License.  Any other attempt to
344copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Document is void, and will
345automatically terminate your rights under this License.  However,
346parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this
347License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
348parties remain in full compliance.
353The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions
354of the GNU Free Documentation License from time to time.  Such new
355versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may
356differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.  See
359Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number.
360If the Document specifies that a particular numbered version of this
361License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the option of
362following the terms and conditions either of that specified version or
363of any later version that has been published (not as a draft) by the
364Free Software Foundation.  If the Document does not specify a version
365number of this License, you may choose any version ever published (not
366as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation.
369ADDENDUM: How to use this License for your documents
371To use this License in a document you have written, include a copy of
372the License in the document and put the following copyright and
373license notices just after the title page:
375      Copyright (c)  YEAR  YOUR NAME.
376      Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document
377      under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.1
378      or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation;
379      with the Invariant Sections being LIST THEIR TITLES, with the
380      Front-Cover Texts being LIST, and with the Back-Cover Texts being LIST.
381      A copy of the license is included in the section entitled "GNU
382      Free Documentation License".
384If you have no Invariant Sections, write "with no Invariant Sections"
385instead of saying which ones are invariant.  If you have no
386Front-Cover Texts, write "no Front-Cover Texts" instead of
387"Front-Cover Texts being LIST"; likewise for Back-Cover Texts.
389If your document contains nontrivial examples of program code, we
390recommend releasing these examples in parallel under your choice of
391free software license, such as the GNU General Public License,
392to permit their use in free software.
