             Artistic License 2.0


 Copyright (c) 2000-2006, The Perl Foundation.

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of
this license document, but changing it is not allowed. Preamble

This license establishes the terms under which a given free
software Package may be copied, modified, distributed, and/or
redistributed. The intent is that the Copyright Holder maintains
some artistic control over the development of that Package while
still keeping the Package available as open source and free
software.

You are always permitted to make arrangements wholly outside
of this license directly with the Copyright Holder of a given
Package. If the terms of this license do not permit the full use
that you propose to make of the Package, you should contact the
Copyright Holder and seek a different licensing arrangement.
Definitions

"Copyright Holder" means the individual(s) or organization(s)
named in the copyright notice for the entire Package.

"Contributor" means any party that has contributed code or
other material to the Package, in accordance with the Copyright
Holder's procedures.

"You" and "your" means any person who would like to copy,
distribute, or modify the Package.

"Package" means the collection of files distributed by the
Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection and/or of
those files. A given Package may consist of either the Standard
Version, or a Modified Version.

"Distribute" means providing a copy of the Package or making
it accessible to anyone else, or in the case of a company or
organization, to others outside of your company or organization.

"Distributor Fee" means any fee that you charge for Distributing
this Package or providing support for this Package to another
party. It does not mean licensing fees.

"Standard Version" refers to the Package if it has not been
modified, or has been modified only in ways explicitly requested
by the Copyright Holder.

"Modified Version" means the Package, if it has been changed,
and such changes were not explicitly requested by the Copyright
Holder.

"Original License" means this Artistic License as Distributed
with the Standard Version of the Package, in its current version
or as it may be modified by The Perl Foundation in the future.

"Source" form means the source code, documentation source, and
configuration files for the Package.

"Compiled" form means the compiled bytecode, object code, binary,
or any other form resulting from mechanical transformation
or translation of the Source form. Permission for Use and
Modification Without Distribution

(1) You are permitted to use the Standard Version and create
and use Modified Versions for any purpose without restriction,
provided that you do not Distribute the Modified Version.
Permissions for Redistribution of the Standard Version

(2) You may Distribute verbatim copies of the Source form of
the Standard Version of this Package in any medium without
restriction, either gratis or for a Distributor Fee, provided
that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices and
associated disclaimers. At your discretion, such verbatim copies
may or may not include a Compiled form of the Package.

(3) You may apply any bug fixes, portability changes, and other
modifications made available from the Copyright Holder. The
resulting Package will still be considered the Standard Version,
and as such will be subject to the Original License. Distribution
of Modified Versions of the Package as Source

(4) You may Distribute your Modified Version as Source (either
gratis or for a Distributor Fee, and with or without a Compiled
form of the Modified Version) provided that you clearly document
how it differs from the Standard Version, including, but not
limited to, documenting any non-standard features, executables,
or modules, and provided that you do at least ONE of the
following:

(a) make the Modified Version available to the Copyright Holder
of the Standard Version, under the Original License, so that the
Copyright Holder may include your modifications in the Standard
Version. (b) ensure that installation of your Modified Version
does not prevent the user installing or running the Standard
Version. In addition, the Modified Version must bear a name that
is different from the name of the Standard Version. (c) allow
anyone who receives a copy of the Modified Version to make the
Source form of the Modified Version available to others under
(i) the Original License or (ii) a license that permits the
licensee to freely copy, modify and redistribute the Modified
Version using the same licensing terms that apply to the copy
that the licensee received, and requires that the Source form
of the Modified Version, and of any works derived from it, be
made freely available in that license fees are prohibited but
Distributor Fees are allowed. Distribution of Compiled Forms of
the Standard Version or Modified Versions without the Source

(5) You may Distribute Compiled forms of the Standard Version
without the Source, provided that you include complete
instructions on how to get the Source of the Standard Version.
Such instructions must be valid at the time of your distribution.
If these instructions, at any time while you are carrying
out such distribution, become invalid, you must provide new
instructions on demand or cease further distribution. If you
provide valid instructions or cease distribution within thirty
days after you become aware that the instructions are invalid,
then you do not forfeit any of your rights under this license.

(6) You may Distribute a Modified Version in Compiled form
without the Source, provided that you comply with Section 4 with
respect to the Source of the Modified Version. Aggregating or
Linking the Package

(7) You may aggregate the Package (either the Standard Version
or Modified Version) with other packages and Distribute the
resulting aggregation provided that you do not charge a licensing
fee for the Package. Distributor Fees are permitted, and
licensing fees for other components in the aggregation are
permitted. The terms of this license apply to the use and
Distribution of the Standard or Modified Versions as included in
the aggregation.

(8) You are permitted to link Modified and Standard Versions
with other works, to embed the Package in a larger work of your
own, or to build stand-alone binary or bytecode versions of
applications that include the Package, and Distribute the result
without restriction, provided the result does not expose a direct
interface to the Package. Items That are Not Considered Part of a
Modified Version

(9) Works (including, but not limited to, modules and scripts)
that merely extend or make use of the Package, do not, by
themselves, cause the Package to be a Modified Version. In
addition, such works are not considered parts of the Package
itself, and are not subject to the terms of this license. General
Provisions

(10) Any use, modification, and distribution of the Standard or
Modified Versions is governed by this Artistic License. By using,
modifying or distributing the Package, you accept this license.
Do not use, modify, or distribute the Package, if you do not
accept this license.

(11) If your Modified Version has been derived from a Modified
Version made by someone other than you, you are nevertheless
required to ensure that your Modified Version complies with the
requirements of this license.

(12) This license does not grant you the right to use any
trademark, service mark, tradename, or logo of the Copyright
Holder.

(13) This license includes the non-exclusive, worldwide,
free-of-charge patent license to make, have made, use, offer
to sell, sell, import and otherwise transfer the Package with
respect to any patent claims licensable by the Copyright Holder
that are necessarily infringed by the Package. If you institute
patent litigation (including a cross-claim or counterclaim)
against any party alleging that the Package constitutes direct or
contributory patent infringement, then this Artistic License to
you shall terminate on the date that such litigation is filed.

(14) Disclaimer of Warranty: THE PACKAGE IS PROVIDED BY THE
COPYRIGHT HOLDER AND CONTRIBUTORS "AS IS' AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS
OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES. THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY,
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT ARE
DISCLAIMED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY YOUR LOCAL LAW. UNLESS
REQUIRED BY LAW, NO COPYRIGHT HOLDER OR CONTRIBUTOR WILL BE
LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OF THE PACKAGE, EVEN IF
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
