1 alonbl 1.1 GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
2     Version 3, 29 June 2007
3    
4     Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
5     Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
6     of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
7    
8    
9     This version of the GNU Lesser General Public License incorporates
10     the terms and conditions of version 3 of the GNU General Public
11     License, supplemented by the additional permissions listed below.
12    
13     0. Additional Definitions.
14    
15     As used herein, "this License" refers to version 3 of the GNU Lesser
16     General Public License, and the "GNU GPL" refers to version 3 of the GNU
17     General Public License.
18    
19     "The Library" refers to a covered work governed by this License,
20     other than an Application or a Combined Work as defined below.
21    
22     An "Application" is any work that makes use of an interface provided
23     by the Library, but which is not otherwise based on the Library.
24     Defining a subclass of a class defined by the Library is deemed a mode
25     of using an interface provided by the Library.
26    
27     A "Combined Work" is a work produced by combining or linking an
28     Application with the Library. The particular version of the Library
29     with which the Combined Work was made is also called the "Linked
30     Version".
31    
32     The "Minimal Corresponding Source" for a Combined Work means the
33     Corresponding Source for the Combined Work, excluding any source code
34     for portions of the Combined Work that, considered in isolation, are
35     based on the Application, and not on the Linked Version.
36    
37     The "Corresponding Application Code" for a Combined Work means the
38     object code and/or source code for the Application, including any data
39     and utility programs needed for reproducing the Combined Work from the
40     Application, but excluding the System Libraries of the Combined Work.
41    
42     1. Exception to Section 3 of the GNU GPL.
43    
44     You may convey a covered work under sections 3 and 4 of this License
45     without being bound by section 3 of the GNU GPL.
46    
47     2. Conveying Modified Versions.
48    
49     If you modify a copy of the Library, and, in your modifications, a
50     facility refers to a function or data to be supplied by an Application
51     that uses the facility (other than as an argument passed when the
52     facility is invoked), then you may convey a copy of the modified
53     version:
54    
55     a) under this License, provided that you make a good faith effort to
56     ensure that, in the event an Application does not supply the
57     function or data, the facility still operates, and performs
58     whatever part of its purpose remains meaningful, or
59    
60     b) under the GNU GPL, with none of the additional permissions of
61     this License applicable to that copy.
62    
63     3. Object Code Incorporating Material from Library Header Files.
64    
65     The object code form of an Application may incorporate material from
66     a header file that is part of the Library. You may convey such object
67     code under terms of your choice, provided that, if the incorporated
68     material is not limited to numerical parameters, data structure
69     layouts and accessors, or small macros, inline functions and templates
70     (ten or fewer lines in length), you do both of the following:
71    
72     a) Give prominent notice with each copy of the object code that the
73     Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are
74     covered by this License.
75    
76     b) Accompany the object code with a copy of the GNU GPL and this license
77     document.
78    
79     4. Combined Works.
80    
81     You may convey a Combined Work under terms of your choice that,
82     taken together, effectively do not restrict modification of the
83     portions of the Library contained in the Combined Work and reverse
84     engineering for debugging such modifications, if you also do each of
85     the following:
86    
87     a) Give prominent notice with each copy of the Combined Work that
88     the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are
89     covered by this License.
90    
91     b) Accompany the Combined Work with a copy of the GNU GPL and this license
92     document.
93    
94     c) For a Combined Work that displays copyright notices during
95     execution, include the copyright notice for the Library among
96     these notices, as well as a reference directing the user to the
97     copies of the GNU GPL and this license document.
98    
99     d) Do one of the following:
100    
101     0) Convey the Minimal Corresponding Source under the terms of this
102     License, and the Corresponding Application Code in a form
103     suitable for, and under terms that permit, the user to
104     recombine or relink the Application with a modified version of
105     the Linked Version to produce a modified Combined Work, in the
106     manner specified by section 6 of the GNU GPL for conveying
107     Corresponding Source.
108    
109     1) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
110     Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (a) uses at run time
111     a copy of the Library already present on the user's computer
112     system, and (b) will operate properly with a modified version
113     of the Library that is interface-compatible with the Linked
114     Version.
115    
116     e) Provide Installation Information, but only if you would otherwise
117     be required to provide such information under section 6 of the
118     GNU GPL, and only to the extent that such information is
119     necessary to install and execute a modified version of the
120     Combined Work produced by recombining or relinking the
121     Application with a modified version of the Linked Version. (If
122     you use option 4d0, the Installation Information must accompany
123     the Minimal Corresponding Source and Corresponding Application
124     Code. If you use option 4d1, you must provide the Installation
125     Information in the manner specified by section 6 of the GNU GPL
126     for conveying Corresponding Source.)
127    
128     5. Combined Libraries.
129    
130     You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
131     Library side by side in a single library together with other library
132     facilities that are not Applications and are not covered by this
133     License, and convey such a combined library under terms of your
134     choice, if you do both of the following:
135    
136     a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work based
137     on the Library, uncombined with any other library facilities,
138     conveyed under the terms of this License.
139    
140     b) Give prominent notice with the combined library that part of it
141     is a work based on the Library, and explaining where to find the
142     accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
143    
144     6. Revised Versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License.
145    
146     The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
147     of the GNU Lesser General Public License from time to time. Such new
148     versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may
149     differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
150    
151     Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
152     Library as you received it specifies that a certain numbered version
153     of the GNU Lesser General Public License "or any later version"
154     applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and
155     conditions either of that published version or of any later version
156     published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Library as you
157     received it does not specify a version number of the GNU Lesser
158     General Public License, you may choose any version of the GNU Lesser
159     General Public License ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
160    
161     If the Library as you received it specifies that a proxy can decide
162     whether future versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License shall
163     apply, that proxy's public statement of acceptance of any version is
164     permanent authorization for you to choose that version for the
165     Library.
