    <H1>The "Artistic License"</H1>

    <H2>Preamble</H2>

    <P>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.</P>

    <H2>Definitions</H2>

    
    <P>"Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
      Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
      created through textual modification.</P>

    <P>"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.</P>

    <P>"Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
      copyrights for the package.</P>

    <P>"You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing
      this Package.</P>

    <P>"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.)</P>

    <P>"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.</P>


    <OL STYLE="list-style-type: decimal;">
      <LI><DIV CLASS="li">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.</DIV></LI>

      <LI>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.</LI>

      <LI>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:
	<OL STYLE="list-style-type: lower-alpha;">
	  <LI>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
	    uunet.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to
	    include your modifications in the Standard Version of the
	    Package.</LI>

	  <LI>use the modified Package only within your corporation or
	    organization.</LI>

	  <LI>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.</LI>
	</OL>
      </LI>
    </OL>

    <P>You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code
      or executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the
      following:</P>

    <OL STYLE="list-style-type: lower-alpha;">
      <LI>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.</LI>

      <LI>accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source
	of the Package with your modifications.</LI>
      
      <LI>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 Version.</LI>

      <LI>make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright
	Holder.</LI>
    </OL>

    <P>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.</P>

    <P>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 whomever
      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.</P>

    <P>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.</P>

    <P>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.</P>

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

    <P>THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
      IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
      WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
      PURPOSE.</P>
