2 prez 1.2 Version 2.0beta5, October 2001
3 prez 1.1
4 prez 1.2 Copyright (C) 2000, 2001 Larry Wall, Bradley M. Kuhn.
5     Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
6     of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
7 prez 1.1
8     Preamble
9    
10     This copyright license states the terms under which a given free software
11     Package may be copied, modified and/or redistributed, while the
12 prez 1.2 Originator(s) maintain some artistic control over the future development of
13     that Package (at least as much artistic control as can be given under
14     copyright law while still making the Package open source and free software).
15 prez 1.1
16     This license is bound by copyright law, and thus it legally applies only to
17     works which the copyright holder has permitted copying, distribution or
18     modification under the terms of the Artistic License, Version 2.0.
19    
20     You are reminded that You are always permitted to make arrangements wholly
21 prez 1.2 outside of a given copyright license directly with the copyright holder(s)
22     of a given Package. If the terms of this license impede your ability to
23     make full use of the Package, You are encouraged to contact the copyright
24     holder(s) and seek a different licensing arrangement.
25    
26 prez 1.1
27     Definitions
28    
29     "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
30 prez 1.2 Originator(s), and derivatives of that collection of files created
31     through textual modification.
32 prez 1.1
33 prez 1.2 "Standard Version" refers to the Package if it has not been modified, or has
34     been modified only in ways suggested by the
35     Originator(s).
36    
37     "Modified Version" refers to the Package, if it has been changed by You via
38     textual modification of the source code, and such changes
39     were not suggested by the Originator(s).
40    
41     "Originator" refers to the author(s) and/or copyright holder(s) of the
42     Standard Version of the Package.
43    
44     "You" and "Your" refers to any person who would like to copy, distribute, or
45     modify the Package.
46    
47     "Distribution Fee" is any fee that You charge for providing a copy of this
48     Package to another party. It does not refer to licensing
49     fees.
50 prez 1.1
51     "Freely Available" means that:
52    
53     (a) no fee is charged for the right to use the item (though a
54     Distribution Fee may be charged).
55    
56     (b) recipients of the item may redistribute it under the same
57     conditions they received it.
58    
59     (c) If the item is a binary, object code, bytecode, the complete
60     corresponding machine-readable source code is included with the
61     item.
62    
63 prez 1.2
64 prez 1.1 Permission for Use and Modification Without Redistribution
65    
66     (1) You are permitted to use the Standard Version and create and use
67     Modified Versions for any purpose without restriction, provided that
68     you do not redistribute the Modified Version to others outside of your
69     company or organization.
70    
71 prez 1.2
72 prez 1.1 Permissions for Redistribution of the Standard Version
73    
74     (2) You may make available verbatim copies of the source code of the
75     Standard Version of this Package in any medium without restriction,
76     either gratis or for a Distribution Fee, provided that you duplicate
77     all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers. At
78     Your discretion, such verbatim copies may or may not include compiled
79     bytecode, object code or binary versions of the corresponding source
80     code in the same medium.
81    
82     (3) You may apply any bug fixes, portability changes, and other
83     modifications made available from any of the Originator(s). The
84     resulting modified Package will still be considered the Standard
85     Version, and may be copied, modified and redistributed under the terms
86     of the original license of the Standard Version as if it were the
87     Standard Version.
88    
89 prez 1.2
90     Permissions for Redistribution of Modified Versions of the Package as Sour=
91     ce
92 prez 1.1
93     (4) You may modify your copy of the source code of this Package in any way
94     and distribute that Modified Version (either gratis or for a
95     Distribution Fee, and with or without a corresponding binary, bytecode
96     or object code version of the Modified Version) provided that You
97     clearly indicate what changes You made to the Package, and provided
98     that You do at least ONE of the following:
99    
100     (a) make the Modified Version available to the Originator(s) of the
101     Standard Version, under the exact license of the Standard
102     Version, so that the Originator(s) may include your modifications
103     into the Standard Version (at their discretion).
104    
105     (b) modify any installation scripts and procedures so that
106     installation of the Modified Version will never conflict with an
107     installation of the Standard Version, include for each program
108     installed by the Modified Version clear documentation describing
109     how it differs from the Standard Version, and rename your
110     Modified Version so that the name is substantially different from
111     the Standard Version.
112    
113     (c) permit and encourage anyone who receives a copy of the Modified
114 prez 1.2 Version to make your modifications Freely Available in some
115     specific way.
116 prez 1.1
117     If Your Modified Version is in turn derived from a Modified Version
118     made by a third party, then You are still required to ensure that Your
119     Modified Version complies with the requirements of this license.
120    
121 prez 1.2
122 prez 1.1 Permissions for Redistribution of Non-Source Versions of Package
123    
124     (5) You may distribute binary, object code, bytecode or other non-source
125     versions of the Standard Version of the Package, provided that you
126     include complete instructions on where to get the source code of the
127     Standard Version. Such instructions must be valid at the time of Your
128     distribution. If these instructions, at any time while You are
129     carrying our such distribution, become invalid, you must provide new
130     instructions on demand or cease further distribution. If You cease
131     distribution within thirty days after You become aware that the
132     instructions are invalid, then You do not forfeit any of Your rights
133     under this license.
134    
135     (6) You may distribute binary, object code, bytecode or other non-source
136     versions of a Modified Version provided that You do at least ONE of
137     the following:
138    
139     (a) include a copy of the corresponding source code for the Modified
140     Version under the terms indicated in (4).
141    
142     (b) ensure that the installation of Your non-source Modified Version
143     does not conflict in any way with an installation of the Standard
144     Version, include for each program installed by the Modified
145     Version clear documentation describing how it differs from the
146     Standard Version, and rename your Modified Version so that the
147     name is substantially different from the Standard Version.
148    
149     (c) ensure that the Modified Version includes notification of the
150     changes made from the Standard Version, and offer to provide
151     machine-readable source code (under a license that permits making
152     that source code Freely Available) of the Modified Version via
153     mail order.
154    
155 prez 1.2
156 prez 1.1 Permissions for Inclusion of the Package in Aggregate Works
157 prez 1.2 =20
158 prez 1.1 (7) You may aggregate this Package (either the Standard Version or
159     Modified Version) with other packages and distribute the resulting
160     aggregation provided that You do not charge a licensing fee for the
161     Package. Distribution Fees are permitted, and licensing fees for
162     other packages in the aggregation are permitted. Your permission to
163     distribute Standard or Modified Versions of the Package is still
164     subject to the other terms set forth in other sections of this
165     license.
166    
167     (8) In addition to the permissions given elsewhere by this license, You
168     are also permitted to link Modified and Standard Versions of this
169     Package with other works and distribute the result without
170     restriction, provided You have produced binary program(s) that do not
171     overtly expose the interfaces of the Package. This includes
172     permission to embed the Package in a larger work of your own without
173     exposing a direct interface to the Package. This also includes
174     permission to build stand-alone binary or bytecode versions of your
175     scripts that require the Package, but do not otherwise give the casual
176     user direct access to the Package itself.
177    
178 prez 1.2
179 prez 1.1 Items That are Never Considered Part of a Modified Version Package
180    
181     (9) Works (including, but not limited to, subroutines and scripts) that
182     you have linked or aggregated with the Package that merely extend or
183     make use of the Package, but are not intended to cause the Package to
184     operate differently from the Standard Version, do not, by themselves,
185     cause the Package to be a Modified Version. In addition, such works
186     are not considered parts of the Package itself, and are not bound by
187     the terms of the Package's license.
188    
189 prez 1.2
190 prez 1.1 Acceptance of License and Disclaimer of Warranty
191    
192     (10) You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed
193     it. However, nothing else grants you permission to copy, modify or
194     distribute the Standard or Modified Versions of the Package. These
195     actions are prohibited by copyright law if you do not accept this
196     License. Therefore, by copying, modifying or distributing Standard
197     and Modified Versions of the Package, you indicate your acceptance of
198     the license of the Package.
199 prez 1.2
200 prez 1.1
