    5655Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to 
    5756using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by 
    58 the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to 
     57the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to 
    5958your programs, too.

     321            How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs 
     322 
     323  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest 
     324possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it 
     325free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms. 
     326 
     327  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest 
     328to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively 
     329convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least 
     330the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found. 
     331 
     332    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.> 
     333    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author> 
     334 
     335    This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify 
     336    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by 
     337    the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or 
     338    (at your option) any later version. 
     339 
     340    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, 
     341    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of 
     342    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the 
     343    GNU General Public License for more details. 
     344 
     345    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along 
     346    with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 
     347    51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA. 
     348 
     349Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail. 
     350 
     351If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this 
     352when it starts in an interactive mode: 
     353 
     354    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author 
     355    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'. 
     356    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it 
     357    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details. 
     358 
     359The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate 
     360parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may 
     361be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be 
     362mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program. 
     363 
     364You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your 
     365school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if 
     366necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names: 
     367 
     368  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program 
     369  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker. 
     370 
     371  <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989 
     372  Ty Coon, President of Vice 
     373 
     374This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into 
     375proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may 
     376consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the 
     377library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General 
     378Public License instead of this License.
