4    
5     Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
6     of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
7    
8     Preamble
9    
10     This license establishes the terms under which a given free software
11     Package may be copied, modified, distributed, and/or redistributed.
12     The intent is that the Copyright Holder maintains some artistic
13     control over the development of that Package while still keeping the
14     Package available as open source and free software.
15    
16     You are always permitted to make arrangements wholly outside of this
17     license directly with the Copyright Holder of a given Package. If the
18     terms of this license do not permit the full use that you propose to
19     make of the Package, you should contact the Copyright Holder and seek
20     a different licensing arrangement.
21    
22     Definitions
23    
24     "Copyright Holder" means the individual(s) or organization(s)
25     named in the copyright notice for the entire Package.
26    
27     "Contributor" means any party that has contributed code or other
28     material to the Package, in accordance with the Copyright Holder's
29     procedures.
30    
31     "You" and "your" means any person who would like to copy,
32     distribute, or modify the Package.
33    
34     "Package" means the collection of files distributed by the
35     Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection and/or of
36     those files. A given Package may consist of either the Standard
37     Version, or a Modified Version.
38    
39     "Distribute" means providing a copy of the Package or making it
40     accessible to anyone else, or in the case of a company or
41     organization, to others outside of your company or organization.
42    
43     "Distributor Fee" means any fee that you charge for Distributing
44     this Package or providing support for this Package to another
45     party. It does not mean licensing fees.
46    
47     "Standard Version" refers to the Package if it has not been
48     modified, or has been modified only in ways explicitly requested
49     by the Copyright Holder.
50    
51     "Modified Version" means the Package, if it has been changed, and
52     such changes were not explicitly requested by the Copyright
53     Holder.
54    
55     "Original License" means this Artistic License as Distributed with
56     the Standard Version of the Package, in its current version or as
57     it may be modified by The Perl Foundation in the future.
58    
59     "Source" form means the source code, documentation source, and
60     configuration files for the Package.
61    
62     "Compiled" form means the compiled bytecode, object code, binary,
63     or any other form resulting from mechanical transformation or
64     translation of the Source form.
65    
66    
67     Permission for Use and Modification Without Distribution
68    
69     (1) You are permitted to use the Standard Version and create and use
70     Modified Versions for any purpose without restriction, provided that
71     you do not Distribute the Modified Version.
72    
73    
74     Permissions for Redistribution of the Standard Version
75    
76     (2) You may Distribute verbatim copies of the Source form of the
77     Standard Version of this Package in any medium without restriction,
78     either gratis or for a Distributor Fee, provided that you duplicate
79     all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers. At
80     your discretion, such verbatim copies may or may not include a
81     Compiled form of the Package.
82    
83     (3) You may apply any bug fixes, portability changes, and other
84     modifications made available from the Copyright Holder. The resulting
85     Package will still be considered the Standard Version, and as such
86     will be subject to the Original License.
87    
88    
89     Distribution of Modified Versions of the Package as Source
90    
91     (4) You may Distribute your Modified Version as Source (either gratis
92     or for a Distributor Fee, and with or without a Compiled form of the
93     Modified Version) provided that you clearly document how it differs
94     from the Standard Version, including, but not limited to, documenting
95     any non-standard features, executables, or modules, and provided that
96     you do at least ONE of the following:
97    
98     (a) make the Modified Version available to the Copyright Holder
99     of the Standard Version, under the Original License, so that the
100     Copyright Holder may include your modifications in the Standard
101     Version.
102    
103     (b) ensure that installation of your Modified Version does not
104     prevent the user installing or running the Standard Version. In
105     addition, the Modified Version must bear a name that is different
106     from the name of the Standard Version.
107    
108     (c) allow anyone who receives a copy of the Modified Version to
109     make the Source form of the Modified Version available to others
110     under
111    
112     (i) the Original License or
113    
114     (ii) a license that permits the licensee to freely copy,
115     modify and redistribute the Modified Version using the same
116     licensing terms that apply to the copy that the licensee
117     received, and requires that the Source form of the Modified
118     Version, and of any works derived from it, be made freely
119     available in that license fees are prohibited but Distributor
120     Fees are allowed.
121    
122    
123     Distribution of Compiled Forms of the Standard Version
124     or Modified Versions without the Source
125    
126     (5) You may Distribute Compiled forms of the Standard Version without
127     the Source, provided that you include complete instructions on how to
128     get the Source of the Standard Version. Such instructions must be
129     valid at the time of your distribution. If these instructions, at any
130     time while you are carrying out such distribution, become invalid, you
131     must provide new instructions on demand or cease further distribution.
132     If you provide valid instructions or cease distribution within thirty
133     days after you become aware that the instructions are invalid, then
134     you do not forfeit any of your rights under this license.
135    
136     (6) You may Distribute a Modified Version in Compiled form without
137     the Source, provided that you comply with Section 4 with respect to
138     the Source of the Modified Version.
139    
140    
141     Aggregating or Linking the Package
142    
143     (7) You may aggregate the Package (either the Standard Version or
144     Modified Version) with other packages and Distribute the resulting
145     aggregation provided that you do not charge a licensing fee for the
146     Package. Distributor Fees are permitted, and licensing fees for other
147     components in the aggregation are permitted. The terms of this license
148     apply to the use and Distribution of the Standard or Modified Versions
149     as included in the aggregation.
150    
151     (8) You are permitted to link Modified and Standard Versions with
152     other works, to embed the Package in a larger work of your own, or to
153     build stand-alone binary or bytecode versions of applications that
154     include the Package, and Distribute the result without restriction,
155     provided the result does not expose a direct interface to the Package.
156    
157    
158     Items That are Not Considered Part of a Modified Version
159    
160     (9) Works (including, but not limited to, modules and scripts) that
161     merely extend or make use of the Package, do not, by themselves, cause
162     the Package to be a Modified Version. In addition, such works are not
163     considered parts of the Package itself, and are not subject to the
164     terms of this license.
165    
166    
167     General Provisions
168    
169     (10) Any use, modification, and distribution of the Standard or
170     Modified Versions is governed by this Artistic License. By using,
171     modifying or distributing the Package, you accept this license. Do not
172     use, modify, or distribute the Package, if you do not accept this
173     license.
174    
175     (11) If your Modified Version has been derived from a Modified
176     Version made by someone other than you, you are nevertheless required
177     to ensure that your Modified Version complies with the requirements of
178     this license.
179    
180     (12) This license does not grant you the right to use any trademark,
181     service mark, tradename, or logo of the Copyright Holder.
182    
183     (13) This license includes the non-exclusive, worldwide,
184     free-of-charge patent license to make, have made, use, offer to sell,
185     sell, import and otherwise transfer the Package with respect to any
186     patent claims licensable by the Copyright Holder that are necessarily
187     infringed by the Package. If you institute patent litigation
188     (including a cross-claim or counterclaim) against any party alleging
189     that the Package constitutes direct or contributory patent
190     infringement, then this Artistic License to you shall terminate on the
191     date that such litigation is filed.
192    
193     (14) Disclaimer of Warranty:
194     THE PACKAGE IS PROVIDED BY THE COPYRIGHT HOLDER AND CONTRIBUTORS "AS
195     IS' AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES. THE IMPLIED
196     WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR
197     NON-INFRINGEMENT ARE DISCLAIMED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY YOUR LOCAL
198     LAW. UNLESS REQUIRED BY LAW, NO COPYRIGHT HOLDER OR CONTRIBUTOR WILL
199     BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL
200     DAMAGES ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OF THE PACKAGE, EVEN IF
201     ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
