    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.
