The "Artistic License"

   The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a
   Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some
   semblance of artistic control over the development of the package,
   while giving the users of the package the right to use and distribute
   the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make
   reasonable modifications.

       refers to the collection of files distributed by the Copyright
       Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files created through
       textual modification.

   "Standard Version"
       refers to such a Package if it has not been modified, or has been
       modified in accordance with the wishes of the Copyright Holder as
       specified below.

   "Copyright Holder"
       is whoever is named in the copyright or copyrights for the package.

       is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing this

   "Reasonable copying fee"
       is whatever you can justify on the basis of media cost, duplication
       charges, time of people involved, and so on.  (You will not be
       required to justify it to the Copyright Holder, but only to the
       computing community at large as a market that must bear the fee.)

   "Freely Available"
       means that no fee is charged for the item itself, though there may
       be fees involved in handling the item. It also means that
       recipients of the item may redistribute it under the same
       conditions they received it.

   1.  You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of
       the Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided
       that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices and
       associated disclaimers.

   2.  You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
       derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder.  A
       Package modified in such a way shall still be considered the
       Standard Version.

   3.  You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way,
       provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file
       stating how and when you changed that file, and provided that you
       do at least ONE of the following:

       a)  place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make
           them Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to
           Usenet or an equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on
           a major archive site such as, or by allowing the
           Copyright Holder to include your modifications in the Standard
           Version of the Package.

       b)  use the modified Package only within your corporation or

       c)  rename any non-standard executables so the names do not
           conflict with standard executables, which must also be
           provided, and provide a separate manual page for each non-
           standard executable that clearly documents how it differs from
           the Standard Version.

       d)  make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.

   4.  You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
       executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the

       a)  distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library
           files, together with instructions (in the manual page or
           equivalent) on where to get the Standard Version.

       b)  accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of
           the Package with your modifications.

       c)  give non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
           document the differences in manual pages (or equivalent),
           together with instructions on where to get the Standard

       d)  make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.

   5.  You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of
       this Package.  You may charge any fee you choose for support of
       this Package.  You may not charge a fee for this Package itself.
       However, you may distribute this Package in aggregate with other
       (possibly commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly
       commercial) software distribution provided that you do not
       advertise this Package as a product of your own.  You may embed
       this Package's interpreter within an executable of yours (by
       linking); this shall be construed as a mere form of aggregation,
       provided that the complete Standard Version of the interpreter is
       so embedded.

   6.  The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
       output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
       under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whoever
       generated them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated
       with this Package.  If such scripts or library files are aggregated
       with this Package via the so-called "undump" or "unexec" methods of
       producing a binary executable image, then distribution of such an
       image shall neither be construed as a distribution of this Package
       nor shall it fall under the restrictions of Paragraphs 3 and 4,
       provided that you do not represent such an executable image as a
       Standard Version of this Package.

   7.  C subroutines (or comparably compiled subroutines in other
       languages) supplied by you and linked into this Package in order to
       emulate subroutines and variables of the language defined by this
       Package shall not be considered part of this Package, but are the
       equivalent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these subroutines
       do not change the language in any way that would cause it to fail
       the regression tests for the language.

   8.  Aggregation of this Package with a commercial distribution is
       always permitted provided that the use of this Package is embedded;
       that is, when no overt attempt is made to make this Package's
       interfaces visible to the end user of the commercial distribution.
       Such use shall not be construed as a distribution of this Package.

   9.  The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or
       promote products derived from this software without specific prior
       written permission.
