       This is "The Artistic License". It's here so that modules,
       programs, etc., that want to declare this as their distri­
       bution license, can link to it.

       It is also one of the two licenses Perl allows itself to
       be redistributed and/or modified; for the other one, the
       GNU General Public License, see the perlgpl.

The "Artistic License"


       The intent of this document is to state the conditions
       under which a Package may be copied, such that the Copy­
       right 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 distribut­
           ing this Package.

       "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 commu­
           nity at large as a market that must bear the fee.)

           of the original copyright notices and associated dis­

       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 equiva­
               lent medium, or placing the modifications on a
               major archive site such as uunet.uu.net, or by
               allowing the Copyright Holder to include your mod­
               ifications in the Standard Version of the Package.

           b)  use the modified Package only within your corpora­
               tion or organization.

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

           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 following:

           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-read­
               able source of the Package with your modifica­

           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 Version.

           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 aggre­
           gated with this Package via the so-called "undump" or
           "unexec" methods of producing a binary executable
           image, then distribution of such an image shall nei­
           ther 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 Pack­

       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 equiva­
           lent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these sub­
           routines do not change the language in any way that
           would cause it to fail the regression tests for the

       8.  Aggregation of this Package with a commercial distri­
           bution 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 vis­
           ible 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.
