Common Documentation License

Version 1.0 - February 16, 2001

Copyright © 2001 Apple Computer, Inc.

Permission is granted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
License, but changing or adding to it in any way is not permitted.

Please read this License carefully before downloading or using this
material. By downloading or using this material, you are agreeing to
be bound by the terms of this License. If you do not or cannot agree
to the terms of this License, please do not download or use this
material.

0. Preamble. The Common Documentation License (CDL) provides a very
simple and consistent license that allows relatively unrestricted use
and redistribution of documents while still maintaining the author's
credit and intent. To preserve simplicity, the License does not
specify in detail how (e.g. font size) or where (e.g. title page,
etc.) the author should be credited. To preserve consistency, changes
to the CDL are not allowed and all derivatives of CDL documents are
required to remain under the CDL. Together, these constraints enable
third parties to easily and safely reuse CDL documents, making the CDL
ideal for authors who desire a wide distribution of their
work. However, this means the CDL does not allow authors to restrict
precisely how their work is used or represented, making it
inappropriate for those desiring more finely-grained control.

1. General; Definitions. This License applies to any documentation,
manual or other work that contains a notice placed by the Copyright
Holder stating that it is subject to the terms of this Common
Documentation License version 1.0 (or subsequent version thereof)
("License"). As used in this License:

1.1 "Copyright Holder" means the original author(s) of the Document or
other owner(s) of the copyright in the Document.

1.2 "Document(s)" means any documentation, manual or other work that
has been identified as being subject to the terms of this License.

1.3 "Derivative Work" means a work which is based upon a pre-existing
Document, such as a revision, modification, translation, abridgment,
condensation, expansion, or any other form in which such pre-existing
Document may be recast, transformed, or adapted.

1.4 "You" or "Your" means an individual or a legal entity exercising
rights under this License.

2. Basic License. Subject to all the terms and conditions of this
License, You may use, copy, modify, publicly display, distribute and
publish the Document and your Derivative Works thereof, in any medium
physical or electronic, commercially or non-commercially; provided
that:
 
    (a) all copyright notices in the Document are preserved;
 
    (b) a copy of this License, or an incorporation of it by reference
        in proper form as indicated in Exhibit A below, is included in
        a conspicuous location in all copies such that it would be
        reasonably viewed by the recipient of the Document; and

    (c) You add no other terms or conditions to those of this License.

3. Derivative Works. All Derivative Works are subject to the terms of
this License. You may copy and distribute a Derivative Work of the
Document under the conditions of Section 2 above, provided that You
release the Derivative Work under the exact, verbatim terms of this
License (i.e., the Derivative Work is licensed as a "Document" under
the terms of this License). In addition, Derivative Works of Documents
must meet the following requirements:

    (a) All copyright and license notices in the original Document
        must be preserved.

    (b) An appropriate copyright notice for your Derivative Work must
        be added adjacent to the other copyright notices.

    (c) A statement briefly summarizing how your Derivative Work is
        different from the original Document must be included in the
        same place as your copyright notice.

    (d) If it is not reasonably evident to a recipient of your
        Derivative Work that the Derivative Work is subject to the
        terms of this License, a statement indicating such fact must
        be included in the same place as your copyright notice.

4. Compilation with Independent Works. You may compile or combine a
Document or its Derivative Works with other separate and independent
documents or works to create a compilation work ("Compilation"). If
included in a Compilation, the Document or Derivative Work thereof
must still be provided under the terms of this License, and the
Compilation shall contain 

    (a) a notice specifying the inclusion of the Document and/or
        Derivative Work and the fact that it is subject to the terms
        of this License, and

    (b) either a copy of the License or an incorporation by reference
        in proper form (as indicated in Exhibit A). Mere aggregation
        of a Document or Derivative Work with other documents or works
        on the same storage or distribution medium (e.g. a CD-ROM)
        will not cause this License to apply to those other works.

5. NO WARRANTY. THE DOCUMENT IS PROVIDED 'AS IS' BASIS, WITHOUT
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND THE COPYRIGHT HOLDER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL
WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE DOCUMENT, EITHER
EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF
SATISFACTORY QUALITY, OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OF
ACCURACY, OF QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND OF NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY
RIGHTS.

6. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL THE COPYRIGHT
HOLDER BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS LICENSE OR
YOUR USE, REPRODUCTION, MODIFICATION, DISTRIBUTION AND/OR PUBLICATION
OF THE DOCUMENT, OR ANY PORTION THEREOF, WHETHER UNDER A THEORY OF
CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR
OTHERWISE, EVEN IF THE COPYRIGHT HOLDER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF
ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY REMEDY.

7. Trademarks. This License does not grant any rights to use any
names, trademarks, service marks or logos of the Copyright Holder
(collectively "Marks") and no such Marks may be used to endorse or
promote works or products derived from the Document without the prior
written permission of the Copyright Holder.

8. Versions of the License. Apple Computer, Inc. ("Apple") may publish
revised and/or new versions of this License from time to time. Each
version will be given a distinguishing version number. Once a Document
has been published under a particular version of this License, You may
continue to use it under the terms of that version. You may also
choose to use such Document under the terms of any subsequent version
of this License published by Apple.  No one other than Apple has the
right to modify the terms applicable to Documents created under this
License.

9. Termination. This License and the rights granted hereunder will
terminate automatically if You fail to comply with any of its
terms. Upon termination, You must immediately stop any further
reproduction, modification, public display, distr ibution and
publication of the Document and Derivative Works. However, all
sublicenses to the Document and Derivative Works which have been
properly granted prior to termination shall survive any termination of
this License. Provisions which, by their nat ure, must remain in
effect beyond the termination of this License shall survive, including
but not limited to Sections 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10.

10. Waiver; Severability; Governing Law. Failure by the Copyright
Holder to enforce any provision of this License will not be deemed a
waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. If for
any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of
this License, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision
of the License will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so
as to effect the economic benefits and intent of the parties, and the
remainder of this License will continue in full force and effect. This
License shall be governed by the laws of the United States and the
State of California, except that body of California law concerning
conflicts of law.
