+
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
+
of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
+
 
+
 
+
0. PREAMBLE
+
 
+
The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other
+
functional and useful document "free" in the sense of freedom: to
+
assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it,
+
with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially.
+
Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way
+
to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible
+
for modifications made by others.
+
 
+
This License is a kind of "copyleft", which means that derivative
+
works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense.  It
+
complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft
+
license designed for free software.
+
 
+
We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free
+
software, because free software needs free documentation: a free
+
program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the
+
software does.  But this License is not limited to software manuals;
+
it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or
+
whether it is published as a printed book.  We recommend this License
+
principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.
+
 
+
 
+
1. APPLICABILITY AND DEFINITIONS
+
 
+
This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that
+
contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be
+
distributed under the terms of this License.  Such a notice grants a
+
world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in duration, to use that
+
work under the conditions stated herein.  The "Document", below,
+
refers to any such manual or work.  Any member of the public is a
+
licensee, and is addressed as "you".  You accept the license if you
+
copy, modify or distribute the work in a way requiring permission
+
under copyright law.
+
 
+
A "Modified Version" of the Document means any work containing the
+
Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with
+
modifications and/or translated into another language.
+
 
+
A "Secondary Section" is a named appendix or a front-matter section of
+
the Document that deals exclusively with the relationship of the
+
publishers or authors of the Document to the Document's overall subject
+
(or to related matters) and contains nothing that could fall directly
+
within that overall subject.  (Thus, if the Document is in part a
+
textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any
+
mathematics.)  The relationship could be a matter of historical
+
connection with the subject or with related matters, or of legal,
+
commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding
+
them.
+
 
+
The "Invariant Sections" are certain Secondary Sections whose titles
+
are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice
+
that says that the Document is released under this License.  If a
+
section does not fit the above definition of Secondary then it is not
+
allowed to be designated as Invariant.  The Document may contain zero
+
Invariant Sections.  If the Document does not identify any Invariant
+
Sections then there are none.
+
 
+
The "Cover Texts" are certain short passages of text that are listed,
+
as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that
+
the Document is released under this License.  A Front-Cover Text may
+
be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover Text may be at most 25 words.
+
 
+
A "Transparent" copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy,
+
represented in a format whose specification is available to the
+
general public, that is suitable for revising the document
+
straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for images composed of
+
pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available
+
drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or
+
for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input
+
to text formatters.  A copy made in an otherwise Transparent file
+
format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been arranged to thwart
+
or discourage subsequent modification by readers is not Transparent.
+
An image format is not Transparent if used for any substantial amount
+
of text.  A copy that is not "Transparent" is called "Opaque".
+
 
+
Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain
+
ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input format, SGML
+
or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standard-conforming simple
+
HTML, PostScript or PDF designed for human modification.  Examples of
+
transparent image formats include PNG, XCF and JPG.  Opaque formats
+
include proprietary formats that can be read and edited only by
+
proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or
+
processing tools are not generally available, and the
+
machine-generated HTML, PostScript or PDF produced by some word
+
processors for output purposes only.
+
 
+
The "Title Page" means, for a printed book, the title page itself,
+
plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material
+
this License requires to appear in the title page.  For works in
+
formats which do not have any title page as such, "Title Page" means
+
the text near the most prominent appearance of the work's title,
+
preceding the beginning of the body of the text.
+
 
+
A section "Entitled XYZ" means a named subunit of the Document whose
+
title either is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in parentheses following
+
text that translates XYZ in another language.  (Here XYZ stands for a
+
specific section name mentioned below, such as "Acknowledgements",
+
"Dedications", "Endorsements", or "History".)  To "Preserve the Title"
+
of such a section when you modify the Document means that it remains a
+
section "Entitled XYZ" according to this definition.
+
 
+
The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which
+
states that this License applies to the Document.  These Warranty
+
Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this
+
License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties: any other
+
implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has
+
no effect on the meaning of this License.
+
 
+
 
+
2. VERBATIM COPYING
+
 
+
You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either
+
commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the
+
copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies
+
to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other
+
conditions whatsoever to those of this License.  You may not use
+
technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further
+
copying of the copies you make or distribute.  However, you may accept
+
compensation in exchange for copies.  If you distribute a large enough
+
number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3.
+
 
+
You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and
+
you may publicly display copies.
+
 
+
 
+
3. COPYING IN QUANTITY
+
 
+
If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have
+
printed covers) of the Document, numbering more than 100, and the
+
Document's license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the
+
copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover
+
Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on
+
the back cover.  Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify
+
you as the publisher of these copies.  The front cover must present
+
the full title with all words of the title equally prominent and
+
visible.  You may add other material on the covers in addition.
+
Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve
+
the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated
+
as verbatim copying in other respects.
+
 
+
If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to fit
+
legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit
+
reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent
+
pages.
+
 
+
If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering
+
more than 100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent
+
copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy
+
a computer-network location from which the general network-using
+
public has access to download using public-standard network protocols
+
a complete Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material.
+
If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps,
+
when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure
+
that this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated
+
location until at least one year after the last time you distribute an
+
Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or retailers) of that
+
edition to the public.
+
 
+
It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the
+
Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give
+
them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.
+
 
+
 
+
4. MODIFICATIONS
+
 
+
You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document under
+
the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release
+
the Modified Version under precisely this License, with the Modified
+
Version filling the role of the Document, thus licensing distribution
+
and modification of the Modified Version to whoever possesses a copy
+
of it.  In addition, you must do these things in the Modified Version:
+
 
+
A. Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct
+
  from that of the Document, and from those of previous versions
+
  (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section
+
  of the Document).  You may use the same title as a previous version
+
  if the original publisher of that version gives permission.
+
B. List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities
+
  responsible for authorship of the modifications in the Modified
+
  Version, together with at least five of the principal authors of the
+
  Document (all of its principal authors, if it has fewer than five),
+
  unless they release you from this requirement.
+
C. State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the
+
  Modified Version, as the publisher.
+
D. Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.
+
E. Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modifications
+
  adjacent to the other copyright notices.
+
F. Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice
+
  giving the public permission to use the Modified Version under the
+
  terms of this License, in the form shown in the Addendum below.
+
G. Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections
+
  and required Cover Texts given in the Document's license notice.
+
H. Include an unaltered copy of this License.
+
I. Preserve the section Entitled "History", Preserve its Title, and add
+
  to it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors, and
+
  publisher of the Modified Version as given on the Title Page.  If
+
  there is no section Entitled "History" in the Document, create one
+
  stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as
+
  given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modified
+
  Version as stated in the previous sentence.
+
J. Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for
+
  public access to a Transparent copy of the Document, and likewise
+
  the network locations given in the Document for previous versions
+
  it was based on.  These may be placed in the "History" section.
+
  You may omit a network location for a work that was published at
+
  least four years before the Document itself, or if the original
+
  publisher of the version it refers to gives permission.
+
K. For any section Entitled "Acknowledgements" or "Dedications",
+
  Preserve the Title of the section, and preserve in the section all
+
  the substance and tone of each of the contributor acknowledgements
+
  and/or dedications given therein.
+
L. Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document,
+
  unaltered in their text and in their titles.  Section numbers
+
  or the equivalent are not considered part of the section titles.
+
M. Delete any section Entitled "Endorsements".  Such a section
+
  may not be included in the Modified Version.
+
N. Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled "Endorsements"
+
  or to conflict in title with any Invariant Section.
+
O. Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers.
+
 
+
If the Modified Version includes new front-matter sections or
+
appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no material
+
copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or all
+
of these sections as invariant.  To do this, add their titles to the
+
list of Invariant Sections in the Modified Version's license notice.
+
These titles must be distinct from any other section titles.
+
 
+
You may add a section Entitled "Endorsements", provided it contains
+
nothing but endorsements of your Modified Version by various
+
parties--for example, statements of peer review or that the text has
+
been approved by an organization as the authoritative definition of a
+
standard.
+
 
+
You may add a passage of up to five words as a Front-Cover Text, and a
+
passage of up to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to the end of the list
+
of Cover Texts in the Modified Version.  Only one passage of
+
Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text may be added by (or
+
through arrangements made by) any one entity.  If the Document already
+
includes a cover text for the same cover, previously added by you or
+
by arrangement made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of,
+
you may not add another; but you may replace the old one, on explicit
+
permission from the previous publisher that added the old one.
+
 
+
The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License
+
give permission to use their names for publicity for or to assert or
+
imply endorsement of any Modified Version.
+
 
+
 
+
5. COMBINING DOCUMENTS
+
 
+
You may combine the Document with other documents released under this
+
License, under the terms defined in section 4 above for modified
+
versions, provided that you include in the combination all of the
+
Invariant Sections of all of the original documents, unmodified, and
+
list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in its
+
license notice, and that you preserve all their Warranty Disclaimers.
+
 
+
The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and
+
multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single
+
copy.  If there are multiple Invariant Sections with the same name but
+
different contents, make the title of each such section unique by
+
adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original
+
author or publisher of that section if known, or else a unique number.
+
Make the same adjustment to the section titles in the list of
+
Invariant Sections in the license notice of the combined work.
+
 
+
In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled "History"
+
in the various original documents, forming one section Entitled
+
"History"; likewise combine any sections Entitled "Acknowledgements",
+
and any sections Entitled "Dedications".  You must delete all sections
+
Entitled "Endorsements".
+
 
+
 
+
6. COLLECTIONS OF DOCUMENTS
+
 
+
You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents
+
released under this License, and replace the individual copies of this
+
License in the various documents with a single copy that is included in
+
the collection, provided that you follow the rules of this License for
+
verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other respects.
+
 
+
You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute
+
it individually under this License, provided you insert a copy of this
+
License into the extracted document, and follow this License in all
+
other respects regarding verbatim copying of that document.
+
 
+
 
+
7. AGGREGATION WITH INDEPENDENT WORKS
+
 
+
A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate
+
and independent documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or
+
distribution medium, is called an "aggregate" if the copyright
+
resulting from the compilation is not used to limit the legal rights
+
of the compilation's users beyond what the individual works permit.
+
When the Document is included in an aggregate, this License does not
+
apply to the other works in the aggregate which are not themselves
+
derivative works of the Document.
+
 
+
If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these
+
copies of the Document, then if the Document is less than one half of
+
the entire aggregate, the Document's Cover Texts may be placed on
+
covers that bracket the Document within the aggregate, or the
+
electronic equivalent of covers if the Document is in electronic form.
+
Otherwise they must appear on printed covers that bracket the whole
+
aggregate.
+
 
+
 
+
8. TRANSLATION
+
 
+
Translation is considered a kind of modification, so you may
+
distribute translations of the Document under the terms of section 4.
+
Replacing Invariant Sections with translations requires special
+
permission from their copyright holders, but you may include
+
translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the
+
original versions of these Invariant Sections.  You may include a
+
translation of this License, and all the license notices in the
+
Document, and any Warranty Disclaimers, provided that you also include
+
the original English version of this License and the original versions
+
of those notices and disclaimers.  In case of a disagreement between
+
the translation and the original version of this License or a notice
+
or disclaimer, the original version will prevail.
+
 
+
If a section in the Document is Entitled "Acknowledgements",
+
"Dedications", or "History", the requirement (section 4) to Preserve
+
its Title (section 1) will typically require changing the actual
+
title.
+
 
+
 
+
9. TERMINATION
+
 
+
You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except
+
as expressly provided for under this License.  Any other attempt to
+
copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Document 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.
+
 
+
 
+
10. FUTURE REVISIONS OF THIS LICENSE
+
 
+
The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions
+
of the GNU Free Documentation 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.  See
+
http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/.
+
 
+
Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number.
+
If the Document specifies that a particular numbered version of this
+
License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the option of
+
following the terms and conditions either of that specified version or
+
of any later version that has been published (not as a draft) by the
+
Free Software Foundation.  If the Document does not specify a version
+
number of this License, you may choose any version ever published (not
+
as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation.
+
 
+
 
+
ADDENDUM: How to use this License for your documents
+
 
+
To use this License in a document you have written, include a copy of
+
the License in the document and put the following copyright and
+
license notices just after the title page:
+
 
+
    Copyright (c)  YEAR  YOUR NAME.
+
    Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document
+
    under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2
+
    or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation;
+
    with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover Texts.
+
    A copy of the license is included in the section entitled "GNU
+
    Free Documentation License".
+
 
+
If you have Invariant Sections, Front-Cover Texts and Back-Cover Texts,
+
replace the "with...Texts." line with this:
+
 
+
    with the Invariant Sections being LIST THEIR TITLES, with the
+
    Front-Cover Texts being LIST, and with the Back-Cover Texts being LIST.
+
 
+
If you have Invariant Sections without Cover Texts, or some other
+
combination of the three, merge those two alternatives to suit the
+
situation.
+
 
+
If your document contains nontrivial examples of program code, we
+
recommend releasing these examples in parallel under your choice of
+
free software license, such as the GNU General Public License,
+
to permit their use in free software.
+
