Charles M. Schulz, creator of Peanuts .
Since 2004, Fantagraphics Books has been republishing the complete run of the comic strip Peanuts1 in hardcover form, starting from the origin of the strip in October 1950.
Contents Charles M. Schulz2 made frequent topical references within the strip to the events and popular culture of the time, which would have required no explanation for a contemporary reader. Some of these references are now rather obscure, and might not be understood by someone not versed in the popular culture of the period. These annotations aim to provide background for such references, and explain their signiﬁcance. Each chapter corresponds with a separate volume from the Fantagraphics series, corresponding to two years of the published strips. The original publication dates of the strips are given in addition to the page numbers of the collection, so this reference work can also be used by people with access to the original archives. ==1950−1952== Annotations to The Complete Peanuts: 1950 to 1952 by Charles M.

Contents • p. 67 (May 23, 1951). ”Second childhood” refers to mental impairment as a result of old age. It was a euphemism16 for such things as what we now know to be Alzheimer’s disease17 . • p. 71 (June 4, 1951). In the early 20th century, people unhappy with the squalor and crime of big cities went ”back to the soil” and became farmers.

But it was recommended that she carry some ”mad money”, in case the man did something that angered her (made her mad), so she could end the date and have her own money to take a street car19 or taxi20 home. • p. 91 (August 13, 1951). ”Comic magazine” and ”comic book21 ” are used interchangeably throughout the early days of the strip, with the former eventually dropping out of use.

(See p. 148, February 10 1952, for a full-scale production of the game.) • p. 114 (November 1, 1951). Children in the United States used to ask for money or candy on Halloween26 .

Someone else has drawn a picture of Charlie Brown on the sidewalk. He adds the legend ”Don’t Tread on Me” so that people won’t scuﬀ up his picture (scuﬃng him in eﬃgy). The phrase ”Don’t Tread on Me” along with the image of a rattlesnake became popular during the American Revolution28 and is seen on the Gadsden ﬂag29 .

Alexander Graham Bell31 is generally credited with the invention of the telephone. • p. 137 (January 15, 1952).

(See also p. 206, June 24, 1952, below). • p. 144 (February 1, 1952). The large disc they are listening to is a phonograph record37 , the precursor to a compact disc38 . • p. 146 (February 4, 1952).

Charlie Brown and Snoopy are playing William Tell43 , the legendary Swiss hero who shot an apple from his son’s head with an arrow. • p. 160 (March 9, 1952).

The violent names and nature of some comic books at the time were epitomized by EC Comics59 and criticized by Fredric Wertham60 in his book Seduction of the Innocent61 . • p. 206 (June 24, 1952). ”Eine Kleine Nachtmusik62 ” is famous musical piece by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart63 .

Lucy is confusing checkers with the card game bridge68 , where a coup and grand coup 69 are various sophisticated card plays. Charlie Brown doesn’t appear to know the diﬀerence either.

The person generally credited with ﬁrst doing this is Chuck Yeager113 on October 14, 1947. • p. 10 (January 22, 1955).

An egotist is someone self-centered, who thinks they are ”the center of the universe.” • p. 21 (February 15, 1955).

Contents • p. 48 (April 19, 1955). Charlie Brown is reading a Pogo122 comic book. • p. 57 (May 10, 1955) Buﬀalo Bill was an army scout and frontiersman who later went into the entertainment business, running his ”Wild West123 ” show. Annie Oakley124 was a female sharpshooter125 and part of the show. She was so talented that she is generally considered American’s ﬁrst female superstar. Although she wasn’t actually part of the settling of the West, she dressed in buckskins to play up that image. It would not be too far a stretch to say that this strip is commentary on the rise of feminism126 that occurred after World War II127 . • p. 60 (May 16, 1955) Almost all clovers have three leafs. Due to their rarity, a four-leaf clover128 is considered a good luck charm. • p. 66 (June 1, 1955).

The song ”The Ballad of Davy Crockett132 ” claims many fantastic things about the man, among them that he killed a bear ”when he was only three.” • p. 69 (June 8, 1955). ”The Ballad of Davy Crockett133 ” begins, ”Davy! Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier . . .” Modern readers may ﬁnd it odd that Schulz devoted so many strips to such a trivial phenomenon, but Davy Crockett and coonskin caps really were seemingly everywhere at the time. (See p. 78, June 28, 1955) • p. 70 (June 9, 1955). Minnesota134 is Chales Schulz’ home state. • p. 73 (June 17, 1955). A white-collar worker135 is a professional, someone who’s work is supposedly more intellectual than physical. People in manufacturing are said to be blue collar worker136 s. The joke is that even Pig Pen’s white collar is bound to be dirty. • p. 75 (June 21, 1955). ”But is it art?” is an age-old question that really has no answer. What makes a drip painting137 by Jackson Pollock138 worthy of the Metropolitan Museum of Art139 , but not a similar painting by a chimp?

She inventing the approach of talking to the her young viewers as if they were in the room with her. • p. 131 (October 31, 1955). The trick-or-treaters are, in order, Patty, Lucy, Shermy, Violet, Schroeder and Linus. • Lucy’s hair and shoes are visible on in panel #4, even though she had planned on dressing as a ghost on Oct 29/30. • On November 14, Pig-Pen says he was ”away” on Hallowe’en, so he is not in this strip. • Linus is behind Schroeder in panel #9; even though Charlie Brown admired Davy Crockett earlier, Linus produces a Crockett snowman on December 12. • p. 106 (November 2, 1955). This will be Sputnik146 , the ﬁrst artiﬁcial satellite, launched by the then-Soviet Union147 on October 4, 1957, signaling the start of the Space Age148 and the Space Race149 . • p. 117 (September 27, 1955).

Snoopy is imitating Mickey Mouse150 . • p. 147 (No date in strip, but is December 7, 1955). Lucy is reading a variation on the Dick and Jane151 readers popular at the time. Schulz is being sarcastic.

Contents • p. 156 (December 28, 1955). All fads pass, and so did Davy Crocket mania. (See p. 187, March 8, 1956, for what became of at least one old coonskin cap.) • p. 159 (January 5, 1956). Nuclear fallout153 is radioactive contamination154 from a nuclear attack. • p. 162 (January 10, 1956). Private ﬁrst class155 is the ”rank” immediately above Linus’ current one. (See p. 159, January 4, 1956) • p. 163 ( January 13, 1956). Juvenile delinquency156 is anti-social and criminal activity by those under the age of 18. It came into the public eye and interest in the 1950s (see West Side Story157 ). • p. 166 (January 19, 1956). To ”read between the lines” means to understand the subtext158 of something—not what is actually said, but rather implied. • p. 167 ( January 22, 1956). Charlie Brown is putting sand (or maybe salt, if he’s trying to melt it) on the ice to prevent anyone from slipping on it ¿ which is exactly what Snoopy wants to do. • p. 170 (January 30, 1956).

Contents • p. 190 ( March 15, 1956). ”Asia minor168 ” the old term for Southwest Asia169 which corresponds today to the Asian170 portion of Turkey171 . Lucy has confused the term with ”Toccata and Fugue in D Minor172 ” by Johann Sebastian Bach173 . • p. 208 (April 26, 1956). In the 1950s the government paid farmers not to use their land. The idea was that this would prevent soil erosion174 and build up healthier soil when crops were eventually planted. • p. 210 ( April 30, 1956). Unlike the previous greens, which were all legitimate shades of the color, the ones in this panel are jokes. Evergreen175 and wintergreen176 , are types of plants. Herb Green was a cartoonist, and Graham Greene177 a novelist. • p. 217 (May 18, 1956). Linus has transformed his blanket into an ascot tie178 , a very sophisticated look in the 1950s, frequently worn by sporty celebrities. • p. 226 (June 8, 1956).

Elvis Presley183 , ”the King of Rock and Roll” had just made his ﬁrst television appearances earlier that year and was a riding a huge crest of popularity. At age 21, was also, arguably, at the height of his attractiveness. And, naturally, Schroeder cares not a whit for rock music184 . • p. 233 (June 24, 1956). A dust bowl185 is an area where, due to drought and/or poor soil management, the soil has lost all nutrients turned to dust, and blown away. • p. 244 (July 19, 1956). The automatic dishwasher186 as we know it wasn’t invented until the 1920s. With the privations imposed by the Great Depression187 and then World War II188 , it didn’t become a common domestic appliance until the 1950s. And, so, of course, Violet’s great-grandmother, who was probably born in the 1880s or 1890s, didn’t have one.

• p. 247 (July 28, 1956). The suburban190 population in North America exploded after World War II191 . Returning veteran192 s wishing to start a settled life moved en masse to the suburbs. Between 1950 and 1956 the resident population of all U.S. suburbs increased by 46%. And, since new suburbs were built from scratch, very few had mature trees. (Though Charlie Brown’s kites never seem to have a problem ﬁnding large trees to crash into.) • p. 249 (July 30, 1956). The titles are all variations on popular books or types of books. From Rags to Fuss-Budget is a spin on any ”Rags to Riches193 ” tale (how someone started out poor but became rich; see the Horatio Alger194 novels). The Power of Positive Fussing is from Norman Vincent Peale’s195 The Power of Positive Thinking , one of most popular inspirational books of the 1950s. Great Fuss-Budgets of Our Time : the are lots of ”of Our Time” books published every year. I Was a Fuss-Budget for the F.B.I. is a take on I Was a Communist for the FBI196 , the radio show and, later, ﬁlm about an undercover agent inﬁltrating communist197 organizations in order to disrupt them. The F.B.I.198 is the Federal Bureau of Investigations, America’s internal criminal investigation organization. In the 1950s America was particularly interested in hunting domestic communists, something which was carried to the extremes199 by U.S. senator Joseph McCarthy200 . • p. 253 (August 4, 1956). Dr. (Benjamin) Spock201 Was a leading pediatrician. The main message of his best-selling The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care202 was for parents to be more aﬀectionate with their children, and to treat them as individuals. (See p. 300, November 26, 1956, below.) • p. 271 (September 20, 1956). Compatible color was a television broadcast standard that allowed color broadcasts to appear on black and white televisions without distortions or ﬂickers (but still, of course, in black and white). Incompatible color was a previous color television standard developed by CBS that would have rendered all existing televisions obsolete. • p. 275 (September 30, 1956). Schroeder is playing the Prelude in C major from Book I of J. S. Bach’s203 Well-Tempered Clavier.

Contents • P. 283 (October 18, 1956). There’s no particular reason why Charlie Brown yelled this except that it’s dog-related and in the movie Lassie Come Home204 it gets yelled, which is what Charlie Brown is really after. • p. 300 (November 26, 1956). Lucy is reading from Dr. Benjamin Spock’s205 The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care206 .

Having ”both feet on the ground” means having a ﬁrm grip on reality. This pun is likely a reference to the fact that the accordion is played while standing, whereas the piano is played while seated and often with a foot on the pedals. (The accordion is also a less widely respected instrument than the piano, explaining Schroeder’s disgust at the remark.) • p. 23 (February 22, 1957). This is the ﬁrst reference in Peanuts218 to the name Joseph Shlabotnik219 , later to be Charlie Brown220 ’s baseball221 hero.

It’s exactly what it looks like: rolling a hoop with a stick. • p. 34 (March 20, 1957). Skywriting223 is when a small airplane, expelling special smoke during ﬂight, ﬂies in certain patterns, creating ”writing” readable from the ground. • p.41 (April 6, 1957).

Old fashioned roller skates228 did not have their own uppers. They were essentially mini skateboards that you attached to your shoes with a set of clamps that you tightened using a skate key. • p. 56 (May 10, 1957). Washboard229 s, used to wash clothes, were, of course, handoperated. • p. 58 (May 13, 1957). Calypso music230 is Caribbean231 folk music232 . It entered the American mainstream in 1956 with Harry Belafonte233 ’s very popular rendition of the ”Banana Boat Song234 ”, a traditional Jamaican235 folk tune. • p. 62 (May 23, 1957). 33 1/3 and 78 rpm were common speeds for phonograph236 records. (The implication is that Lucy speaks very quickly indeed!). • p. 77 (June 29, 1957). Buttons proclaiming ”I Like Ike237 ” were common in 1951-1952. They proclaimed support for Dwight D.

Lucy has confused ”phonetic243 ” (word sounds) with ”psychic244 ” (having the ability to read minds). • p. 98 (August 17, 1957). According to the U.S. Census Bureau 16.1 million men and women served in the U.S. armed forces from Dec. 1, 1941, and Dec. 31, 1946. So practically every U.S. family has a World War II245 veteran in it. • p. 99 (August 18, 1957). ”Geronimo!” is the traditional cry of paratrooper246 s and others as they jump out of planes.

According to Billboard252 , the number one song in the United States253 that week was ”Jailhouse Rock254 ” by Elvis Presley255 . Note: Schulz drew his strip weeks in advance.

The ﬁrst movement of Beethoven’s257 Piano Sonata No. 1, op. 2 No. 1. • p. 152 (December 20, 1957). Pat Boone258 was a popular singer of the time.

Contents • p. 157 (December 30, 1957). Snoopy’s ears are forming a square. ”Square261 ” is a slang term for someone who is old fashioned and not ”hip262 .” Schroeder’s love of classical music marks him as deﬁnite square. • p. 160 (January 8, 1958). Another reading from the gentle and encouraging Dr. Benjamin Spock’s263 revolutionary book, The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care264 . • p. 164 (January 17, 1958). Peter Rabbit265 by Beatrix Potter266 and Alice in Wonderland267 by Lewis Carroll268 are both children’s books, and so easy reads (though Alice is actually a complex satire, although it is doubtful that Charlie Brown would get the references). • p. 164 (January 18, 1958). ”Pioneer Days” would be the 1800s when the American Old West269 was ﬁrst settled by white men (”pioneers”). That would anywhere from 50 to 150 years before World War II270 . • p. 170 (February 1, 1958). This appears to be a reference to the movie I Was a Teenage Werewolf271 from 1957. • p. 172 (February 4, 1958). Another reference to Sputnik272 , the ﬁrst artiﬁcial satellite. • p. 175 (February 10, 1958). Linus knows that carrying around a blanket makes him look crazy, and crazy people are not drafted into the army. • p. 175 (February 11, 1958). Lucy is mis-quoting Karl Marx273 who said, ”Religion is the opium of the people274 .” Like most people, she has mis-interpreted that saying to mean that religion is a tool used by the bourgeoisie to keep the masses quiet and complacent. • p. 181 (February 25, 1958). To be ”blackballed275 ” is to forbidden to join an organization. The Blue Birds were a children’s club, part of the Camp Fire Organization276 (similar to Scouting277 ), and so, theoretically not that picky. (Blue Birds were started in 1913 as an organization for girls. In 1989 the Blue Bird level became the ”Starﬂight” level serving both boys and girls.)

See above. • p. 221 (May 30, 1958). The Beat Generation287 refers to a group of American writers of the 1950s, most notably Jack Kerouac288 . But here Charlie Brown is referring to himself as beaten down by life in general. • p. 222 (June 1, 1958). ”Dear Agnes” is a play on Dear Abby289 , the advice columnist (or ”agony aunt290 ”), whose column began running in 1956. • p. 224 (June 6, 1958).

Contents • p. 269 (September 19, 1958). ”The fastest gun in the west” was a claim made by many an Old West296 gunslinger297 .

The underdog300 is the person or team not expected to win a contest. The word’s origin, in ship construction, actually does make its opposite ”overdog.” • p. 289 (November 4, 1958). Beethoven301 did not belong to a country club302 , so he never had the chance to become ”club champion”: the member of the club who is the best at a particular sport, usually golf303 or tennis304 . • p. 289 (November 5, 1958). Irving Berlin305 was a well known American composer and lyricist, author of, among other songs, ”God Bless America306 ,” ”White Christmas307 ,” and ’ ”There’s No Business Like Show Business308 .” • p. 307 (December 16, 1958).

Contents Category:Annotations of The Complete Peanuts315 ==1959−1960== Annotations to The Complete Peanuts: 1959 to 1960 by Charles M. Schulz (Fantagraphics Books, 2006. ISBN 1560976713) • p. 3 (January 6, 1959) 4th panel. Popular songs316 were the music that ”everybody” was familiar with during the ﬁrst half of the 20th century, until rock and roll replaced it as the music of the general public. • ”Stardust317 ”, written by Hoagy Carmichael318 , and recorded thousands of times, was one of the most popular of these ”popular songs.” During the 1940s - 50s many older pieces of music (including some classical) were jazzed up, given lyrics and became ”hits.” For example, ”Stranger in Paradise319 ” from the 1953 musical Kismet320 is based on Alexander Borodin321 ’s Polovetsian Dances322 and Tchaikovsky323 ’s Piano Concerto in B-Flat Minor became “Tonight We Love.” The joke is that the children are so young that they don’t know ”Stardust” has already been around a while and in fact started out as a pop song. • p. 18 (February 11, 1959) 3rd panel. ”Tennessee Ernie” is Tennessee Ernie Ford324 , a popular singer and TV variety show host. • p. 30 (March 9, 1959) 2nd panel. Deep focus325 again. (See also Vol. 1, p. 267, November 15, 1952.) • p. 34 (March 20, 1959). Joseph Haydn’s326 Symphony No. 94 is nicknamed the Surprise Symphony327 due to the sudden appearance of a loud chord during the second movement. • p. 37 (March 27, 1959). The ﬁrst appearance of Lucy’s psychiatric help booth. • p. 38 (March 29, 1959). Commercial use of jet aircraft in the United States began with the Boeing 707328 , ﬁrst used in international service in October 1958 and for domestic ﬂights in January 1959. Jets were louder than the propeller-driven aircraft they replaced, and in many places, people living near airports distributed petitions in an attempt to reduce the number of jet ﬂights and/or reroute jet traﬃc away from their homes. • p. 42 (April 6, 1959) 3rd and 4th panels. Almost certainly Peter Gunn329 , which had premiered on TV the year before. Gunn was a cool detective, hip330 to all the lingo.

Contents “Mommy-O” is a spin on ”Daddy-O”, what one cool331 cat might call another. The 1958 ﬁlm Daddy-O332 features a truck driver who turns detective. • p. 60 (May 18, 1959). Telephone booth stuﬃng333 , in which as many people as possible tried to cram into the same glass-walled phone booth, was a fad in the late 1950s, primarily on college campuses. • p. 67 (June 6, 1959). ”I was an only dog.” Schulz would later change his mind on this (or, he simply forgot the line). Over the years (see May 5, 1965), we would learn that Snoopy had seven siblings334 . • p. 68 (June 7, 1959). The ﬁrst movement of Beethoven’s335 Piano Sonata No. 1, op. 2 No. 1. • p. 79 (July 4, 1959) 4th panel. Charlie Brown is suggesting that his father will have to drastically raise the price of haircuts at his barber shop in order to cover the increased cost of living that comes with an expanded family. At the time, haircuts typically cost less than $2.00. • p. 81 (July 6, 1959). The Soviet Union was well-known for sending dogs into space336 , experiments which were continuing as of this date. The American space program had actually sent mice into space in the early 1950s; by 1959, they had moved on to monkeys, with a pair surviving a ﬂight in May of that year. Various other animals also made space ﬂights337 . • p. 87 (July 20, 1959). The back sides of boxes of breakfast cereals338 aimed at children often had brief stories or comic strips printed on them. • p. 87 (July 22, 1959). The Continental League339 was proposed in 1959 as a competitor to the American340 and National341 baseball leagues. It was to have begun play in 1961, but the existing leagues soon announced plans for expansion teams342 in some of the Continental League cities, thus eliminating much of the new league’s reason for being. • p. 99 (August 19, 1959). ”Hot summer nights”: the name given to racial riots of the 1950s and 60s. • p. 101 (August 23, 1959). Note that it was three months between the ﬁrst mention of Charlie Brown’s new baby sister (May 26, 1959) and this, her ﬁrst actual appearance in the strip. • p. 120 (October 6, 1959). First mention of ”Miss Othmar.”

The Brothers Grimm343 popularized the legend of the Pied Piper344 , who is reputed to have used his pipe to play music to lure an infestation of rats out of the town of Hamelin, Germany; when he was not paid by the townspeople, he later returned and lured the town’s children away. • p. 126 (October 21, 1959). Lucy is reading the mythological story of King Midas345 . Linus is correct that things backﬁred for the king. • p. 129 (October 26, 1959). First mention of ”the Great Pumpkin346 .” • p. 131 (November 1, 1959) 5th through 7th panels. Dr. Benjamin Spock’s347 bestselling book Baby and Child Care348 , ﬁrst published in 1946, advocated a more loving approach -- some would say ”permissive” -- to raising a baby than had previously been in vogue. • p. 137 (November 15, 1959) 4th and 5th panels. The Soviet Union349 launched several Sputnik350 satellites between 1957 and 1960, apparently enough that Charlie Brown and Lucy could use ”Sputnik” as a generic term meaning ”artiﬁcial satellite.” • p. 138 (November 17, 1959) 1st panel. A score of 300351 -- 12 strikes in a row -- is the best possible score in a single game of ten-pin bowling352 . • p. 142 (November 26, 1959) 3rd panel. Babylon353 was a city in ancient Mesopotamia354 . • p. 142 (November 27, 1959) 2nd panel. Solomon355 -- king of the United Kingdom of Israel356 , approximately 970 to 928 BCE. Nebuchadnezzar357 -- more common name of Nebuchadrezzar II, ruler of Babylon (see previous strip) from about 605 to 562 BCE. Genghis Khan358 -- founder of the Mongol Empire359 circa 1206. • p. 145 (December 5, 1959) 2nd and 3rd panels. Horsehide is another name for a baseball360 and pigskin is another name for an American football361 , in both cases due to the material traditionally used for each ball’s cover. Both are now much more commonly made from either cow leather362 or synthetic materials.

Contents • p. 150 (December 14, 1959) 4th panel. Beethoven’s ﬁrst name was actually Ludwig363 . • p. 152 (December 20, 1959) 6th panel. Linus’s quote is Luke 2:10364 from the King James Version365 of the Bible. He expands upon it in A Charlie Brown Christmas366 , quoting verses 8 through 14. • p. 160 (January 7, 1960) 4th panel. Indoor antennas intended primarily for receiving VHF367 television broadcasts were frequently in the form of a dipole antenna368 placed on top of the TV set, each pole a separate telescoping metal rod. Often set at a 45-degree angle to the set and a 90-degree angle to each other, these antennas were nicknamed ”rabbit ears.” • p. 162 (January 12, 1960). ”Rabbit ears” antennas often had to be adjusted to a diﬀerent position in order to improve the quality of the television picture, when changing to a channel that was transmitting from a diﬀerent location than the previous channel, or as a result of changing atmospheric conditions. • p. 164 (January 17, 1960). The ﬁrst iteration of what would become a recurring theme: Snoopy and his doomed relationship with a snowman. See also February 2, 1961; January 15−20, 1962; and, most memorably, February 18, 1962. • p. 174 (February 8, 1960). Snoopy’s doghouse had not previously been shown as being this close to a house -- see January 2, 1960, for example. • p. 189 (March 14, 1960). ”Whirlybird” is a nickname for helicopters369 . • p. 207 (April 25, 1960) 4th panel. The phrase ”happiness is a warm puppy” led to an explosion in Peanuts merchandise and entered the consciousness of the public at large, even inspiring a Beatles song370 . (Also see the April 27 and April 30 strips.) • p. 224 (June 5, 1960). Linus starts singing the traditional spiritual ”Dem Bones371 .” • p. 240 (July 12, 1960). The picture tube372 is the main part of a traditional television set. • p. 243 (July 18, 1960). Uncle Sam373 is the traditional personiﬁcation of the United States. The elephant is a symbol for the Republican party374 , and the donkey is a symbol for its counterpart, the Democratic party375 .

Contents All of this means that Lucy has crammed a bunch of symbols commonly used by editorial cartoonists into the same cartoon. • p. 245 (July 24, 1960) 13th panel. Lucy’s microphone377 is a lavalier378 -type condenser microphone, commonly worn by television personalities who would have to move around too much to use a ﬁxed microphone and didn’t need to use a handheld type. This type of microphone later became much smaller, to the point where it can now be clipped to a lapel or even hidden beneath a shirt. • p. 253 (August 11, 1960). The spitball379 was banned in professional baseball in 1920. Schulz and/or his syndicate may have worried about some client newspapers’ acceptance of the word ”spit” on their comics page, hence the use of the euphemism380 ”expectorate ball.” • p. 254 (August 14, 1960) 4th panel. British Honduras381 is now known as Belize382 , after having become a self-governing colony in 1964 and fully independent of the United Kingdom in 1981. • p. 257 (August 21, 1960) 6th panel. ”Rain Rain Go Away383 ” is a traditional nursery rhyme that normally doesn’t work this quickly. (Also see the following two Sunday strips, August 28 and September 4.) • p. 264 (September 6, 1960). This storyline may have been inspired by an upgrade of U.S. 101384 through Sonoma County, California385 , upgraded to a freeway386 in the 1960s. Since freeways are wider than traditional roads and require additional space for gradeseparated interchanges at intersections, their construction often results in the need for the local government to use eminent domain387 powers to purchase signiﬁcant amounts of land on and around the route of the road. • p. 273 (September 28, 1960).

This strip begins what would be the longest continued narrative in Peanuts up to that time: three weeks. • p. 3 (January 6, 1961). The end of this strip and the following three dailies are sly references to drug withdrawal, speciﬁcally heroin396 —an amusingly mature theme for the comics pages, especially at a time where comics were expected to have nothing to do with political and social issues, although not surprising for Peanuts , as it would explicitly tackle those kinds of issues later on, such as the Vietnam War and tear gas at campaign protests of the early 70’s and late 60’s, runaway licensing, and once in 1985, even triple bypass surgery. • p. 4 (January 11, 1961). Hyannis Port (sometimes written “Hyannisport”) is an aﬄuent residential village southwest of Hyannis397 .

Also note the redundant “5¢” sign at the bottom; this would later be replaced. • p. 14 (January 30, 1961). Linus is tabulating the combined gifts from the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas408 ”. The song has twelve verses, each listing the gifts given by “my true love”; the gifts cumulate with each day/verse. Linus’s math is correct; however, the song is more commonly sung to refer to “drummers drumming” rather than “ﬁddlers ﬁddling”. • p. 17 (February 8, 1961). Pasteurization409 is the process of heating liquids for the purpose of destroying viruses and harmful organisms, named for its inventor, chemist Louis Pasteur410 (1822−1895).

Speculating on the eﬀects of television on American culture, which Snoopy parodies here, was a common theme in the early days of the Kennedy administration.

Contents aware of the practice from his own experiences teaching Sunday school. Christian writer John Fischer said, “[t]hough it has largely disappeared from the scene, ﬂannelgraph may very well be the closest thing to a strictly evangelical art form, for I never encountered it anywhere but in Christian endeavors, and I haven’t seen it anywhere else since. It was an evangelical quirk of the 1950s that soon went the way of sword drills and the family altar”417 . • p. 36 (March 23, 1961). In 1961, a television small enough to be portable was still a relative novelty. • p. 47 (April 17, 1961).

The H-Bomb is the common form of referring to hydrogen bomb423 s. • p. 62 (May 23, 1961). Frieda’s cat Faron was the only cat that would ever appear in Peanuts . Schulz wrote later: “One day, while searching for some kind of new story to work on, I decided to have the character named Frieda... threaten Snoopy with bringing a cat into the neighborhood. Snoopy was horriﬁed, and, when the cat arrived, did not like it at all. Fortunately for him, I also discovered that I didn’t care much for the cat. For one thing, I realized that I don’t draw a cat very well, and secondly, if I were to keep up the relationship, I would have a traditional cat-and-dog strip, which was something I certainly wanted to avoid... the cat brought Snoopy back to being too much of a real dog. By the time the cat had come into the strip, Snoopy was drifting further and further into his fantasy life, and it was important that he continue in that direction. To take him back to his earlier days would not work, so I did the obvious and removed the cat. (My only regret was that I had named the cat after Faron Young, a country-and-western singer whom I admired very much...)”424 Schulz would later introduce an “oﬀstage” cat. • p. 63 (May 26, 1961). “Sandbagging425 ” is a term mainly used in gaming or sporting contexts, meaning to feign weakness to obtain an advantage. • p. 64 (May 28, 1961). “Just Before the Battle426 ” was an 1864 song written by George F.

Contents you”. Schulz would often refer to this strip as one of his favorites, and also as one of the few that was based on an idea he had gotten from his children: “We were at the dinner table and Amy was talking away on a real talking streak and ﬁnally I said, ‘Can’t you please be quiet?’ and she was silent for a moment and then picked up a piece of bread and began to butter it, saying, ‘Am I buttering too loud for you?’ ”429 The punchline would be repeated by Schulz on August 5, 1998, in honor of Amy’s birthday430 . • p. 66 (June 1, 1961).

Shrimp Louie (or Louis) is a type of salad with shrimp and hardboiled eggs. The recipe is based on the better-known Crab Louie434 . • p. 81 (July 8, 1961). Another reference to the Civil War Centennial. Charlie Brown is singing the “Battle Cry of Freedom435 ”, a pro-Union song written by George F. Root in 1862; it was the most popular song of its day.

Bill Mauldin618 was an American soldier and cartoonist, best known for creating the characters Willie and Joe for cartoons that appeared in Stars and Stripes619 during World War II. • p. 151 (December 16, 1969). Snoopy has confused his terminology somewhat; the usual term for the easy ski hill that beginners use is the “bunny hill”, rather than “rabbit slope”. • p. 153 (December 21, 1969). The quotation on the descent of Jesus that Linus recites is Matthew 1:1–18. • p. 157 (December 31, 1969).

Snoopy’s interest in this rather heavy literary ﬁgure is meant to contrast amusingly with his former preoccupation with the more lighthearted subject matter of Miss Sweetstory’s Bunny-Wunnie books. • p. 57 (May 10, 1971). It is almost impossible to convey how huge an impact the movie Love Story 629 had on popular culture when it was released. The book630 , the movie itself, its theme song, were best-sellers. They were referred to in every media; individuals would talk about it at every occasion. It practically saturated the entertainment space.

First appearance of Marcie, without her being named. • p. 97 (August 12, 1971).

Many of the ﬁrst names mentioned by Lucy are from Schulz’ own life: ”...Lee, and Bill, ...” probably for Lee Mendelson631 and Bill Melendez632 , ”...Amy, and Jill, and Meredith, ...” are names of Schulz633 ’s children, ”...Donna” for Donna Mae Johnson634 , etc. • p. 123 (October 11, 1971).

Her other brother Silas, her sister Ella, and her mother also joined them.648 • p. 207 (April 25, 1976). Today not so well-known because of more advanced wireless communication systems, Citizen’s Band649 (CB) radio became very popular in the mid1970s. Its users had a notorious way of expressing themselves in coded650 and slang651 language. They organized themselves in clubs and many invested considerable time and resources in their hobby. CB radio enthusiasts eventually formed a kind of alternate culture.

Contents • p. 268 September 13-October 28, 1976 The strip’s longest storyline: almost seven weeks. • p. 268 September 14 Peppermint Patty is confusing George Washington and presentational election to ophthalmologist and sports. Bunker Hill652 was a famous battle during the American Revolution, a war that spotlighted Washington. Category:Annotations of The Complete Peanuts653 ==1977−1978== Annotations to The Complete Peanuts: 1977 to 1978 by Charles M. Schulz (Fantagraphics Books, 2010. ISBN 1606993755) • p. 117 (September 26, 1977). Plains, Georgia654 is a small town of around 700 people. Its claim to fame in 1977 was that it was the birthplace of Jimmy Carter655 , who was elected President of the United States a year before. • p. 132 (November 1, 1977). ”Deprogramming”656 was often discussed in the American media in the mid-1970s. At the time, some anxiety arose in the population concerning a perception of increased recruiting by fringe cults. Those cults allegedly brainwashed young and weak individuals into leaving their families to follow them. Numerous books and movies were also written on the topics of cults and deprogramming. • p. 261 (August 28-29, 1978). How Charlie Brown obtained the Little Red-Haired Girl’s phone number is a mystery. She had left Charlie Brown’s neighborhood on July 18, 1969, without him knowing at all where she went (see July 17, 1969 and April 30, 1970). After that, Charlie Brown saw her only on a ski trip and at summer camps. In later strips, she is even back in the neighborhood (December 27, 1978) without explanations on exactly when and why she returned.

ISBN 1606994387) • p. 139 (November 20, 1979). Although common today thanks to personal computers, writing in more than one typeface was not generally possible with typewriters. Only high-end typewriters would oﬀer that feature. • p. 230 (June 21, 1980). In the United States as in many other countries, the end of the 1970s had seen a new phenomenon that generated much media interest: religious groups and cults supported by strong public relations and marketing strategies. The secular population, as well as Christian churches and individuals that were rather ”mainstream” (like Schulz himself), generally disapproved of those organisations. The comments oﬀered in previous strips respectively by the intellectual wing and the street-smart wing of the Peanuts gang epitomize that disapproval.

First instance of Marcie calling Charlie Brown ”Charles.” She will persist in that habit. • p. 127 (October 24, 1981). ”Psychiatric help: 34 cents.” In the late 1970s and early 1980s, price inﬂation in most western countries surged to peacetime records. In the United States, it soared to 15% per year in 1980, generating considerable anxiety in the population. Lucy’s rates followed the trend and increased dramatically in 1981: they were 10 cents on March 15, 34 cents on October 24 and 50 cents on December 16. They returned to their historical level of 5 cents on June 27, 1982. Category:Annotations of The Complete Peanuts659 ==1983−1984== Annotations to The Complete Peanuts: 1983 to 1984 by Charles M. Schulz (Fantagraphics Books, 2011. ISBN 1606995235) • p. 102 (August 24, 1983) As the strip indicates, the French term esprit de l’escalier translates as ”wit of the stairway”. Schulz used French terms several times during the course of his strip, mainly during its later half, and all of them were authentic. • p. 144 (November 29, 1983) The motion picture Flashdance660 was released in April 1983 in the United States and enjoyed a large success at the box oﬃce. Bill Melendez released an animated parody of it (and of other dance ﬁlms) in April 1984, under the title It’s Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown661 . • p. 151 (December 16, 1983) It seems that Sally’s script refers to the Christmas carol ”Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”662 , well known in English speaking countries. • p. 156 (December 27, 1983) ”Snowperson”: political correctness in the early 80s had gone quite far in its attempts to erase gender-biased expressions from the common language. At that time, many tried to be gender-neutral to the point of sacriﬁcing clarity, for example in sentences such as ”Every man/woman shall don his/her life jacket and report to the steward/stewardess nearest to him/her.” Some common nouns disappeared at that time, for example, ”ﬁreman” was replaced by ”ﬁreﬁghter.” In a somewhat related gag, Jim Unger663 in his cartoon Herman664 had a sales clerk telling a customer: ”We live in a very strange era,” with in the background a banner saying ”Grandperson clocks.” • p. 193 (March 23, 1984) There is a ”Highland Park” and a ”Selby Avenue” in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Schulz lived at the corner of Selby and Snelling, where his father’s barber shop was also located. • p. 220 (May 25, 1984) ”Playing trivia”: Trivia games started in the early 80s, with Isaac Asimov665 ’s Super Quiz666 possibly being the ﬁrst of them in 1982. They became very popular by the mid-80s.

ISBN 1606995723) • p. xi (Foreword by Patton Oswald) ”Snoopy even adds a new make-believe character to his repertoire (...) a bowtie-wearing, bowler-topped attorney.” That sentence is misleading, as the attorney persona of Snoopy in fact appeared many years before 1985/1986. • p. 47 (April 19, 1985) It seems Snoopy is cured of the ”weed claustrophobia” that plagued him in 1956. See the strips of October 27, November 3, and November 6 to 9 of that year. • p. 94 (August 7, 1985). A ”punker” is ”a punk rock musician or a devotee of punk rock or punk styles.”. They were especially prevalent during the late 70’s and 80’s. • p. 94-95 (August 7, 1985-August 9, 1985) Although the term ”mallies” doesn’t actually exist, the type of people Schulz was referring to did. In the 80’s, and still today, there are several people who can be possibly referred to as ”mallies”. • p. 97 (August 12, 1985) YUPpies672 (from ”Young Urban Professional”) deﬁned the 1980s more than any other social group. Their way of life (expensive tastes and professional ambition) was fueled by the ﬁnancial and economic optimism of the era and was the subject of many books, movies, and television series (The Bonﬁre of the Vanities673 , Family Ties674 , Wall Street675 ). • p. 127-128 (October 23, 1985-October 25, 1985) ”The Lone Eagle”, as the ﬁrst strip of this series explicitly indicates, was Charles Lindbergh, who, as this strip also indicates, made the ﬁrst nonstop solo ﬂight from New York to Paris. Snoopy’s ”Lone Beagle” outﬁt is also his World War One Flying Ace outﬁt as well. • p. 128 (October 26, 1985) Wayne Gretzky is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player and former head coach. The joke is that Rerun’s helmet looks like a hockey mask. • p. 128 (October 27, 1985) One of the rare instances where an adult’s speech appears in Peanuts.

Contents • p. 131 (November 1, 1985) ”Beagle Blaster” refers to ghetto blasters, an 80’s slang term referring to ”a large, powerful portable radio, especially as carried and played by a pedestrian or used outdoors in an urban area.”. • p. 133-134 (November 6, 1985-November 9, 1985) Halley’s Comet, oﬃcially designated 1P/Halley, is the best-known of the short-period comets and is visible from Earth every 75–76 years. Halley is the only short-period comet that is clearly visible to the naked eye from Earth, and thus the only naked-eye comet that might appear twice in a human lifetime. Other naked-eye comets may be brighter and more spectacular, but will appear only once in thousands of years. As this strip series explicitly indicates, Sally has the date at least a month too early, and the comet’s actual arrival was on February 1986. • p. 170 (February 1, 1986) She has what is known as a ten-speed.. A ten speed is ”a system of gears having ten forward gear ratios, especially on a bicycle. ”. These types of bikes were particularly popular during the 70’s and 80’s. • p. 174 (February 9, 1986) The poems Snoopy writes down are plays on a classic love poem that may be traced at least as far back as to the following lines written in 1590 by Sir Edmund Spenser from his epic The Faerie Queene (Book Three, Canto 6, Stanza 6): It was upon a Sommers shynie day, When Titan faire his beames did display, In a fresh fountaine, farre from all mens vew, She bath’d her brest, the boyling heat t’allay; She bath’d with roses red, and violets blew, And all the sweetest ﬂowres, that in the forrest grew. The version Snoopy is lampooning is the most popular one: Roses are red, Violets are blue, Sugar is sweet, And so are you. • P. 175 (February 10, 1986) About the political correctness of the 1980s concerning gender bias in language, see also the strip of December 27, 1983. • P. 175-176, 178-179 (February 10, 1986-February 15, 1986, and February 16, 1986 February 21, 1986) As the series explicitly indicates, the ﬂu Snoopy(as the World War One Ace)catches is the great inﬂuenza epidemic of 1918-1919. As it also states, before it ended in 1919, twenty million people had died from the disease.. The armistice that was to mark the end of World War One that was mentioned February 19, was also signed during those years of death and disease. • P. 178 (February 19, 1986) ”The war is over!!” Actually, the war is not over for Snoopy’s pilot persona. It will return to ﬁght on October 4, 1986. • p. 179 (February 22, 1986) The national anthem of the Unites States of America is the Star Spangled Banner, of which lyrics come from ”Defence of Fort McHenry”, a
Contents poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet, Francis Scott Key, after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy ships in Chesapeake Bay during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812. The poem was set to the tune of a popular British song written by John Staﬀord Smith for the Anacreontic Society, a men’s social club in London. ”The Anacreontic Song” (or ”To Anacreon in Heaven”), with various lyrics, was already popular in the United States. Set to Key’s poem and renamed ”The Star-Spangled Banner”, it would soon become a well-known American patriotic song. With a range (tessitura) of one and a half octaves, it is known for being diﬃcult to sing. Although the poem has four stanzas, only the ﬁrst is commonly sung today. ”The Star-Spangled Banner” was recognized for oﬃcial use by the Navy in 1889, and by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916, and was made the national anthem by a congressional resolution on March 3, 1931 (46 Stat. 1508, codiﬁed at 36 U.S.C. § 301), which was signed by President Herbert Hoover. Before 1931, other songs served as the hymns of American oﬃcialdom. ”Hail, Columbia” served this purpose at oﬃcial functions for most of the 19th century. ”My Country, ’Tis of Thee”, whose melody is identical to ”God Save the Queen”, the British national anthem, also served as a de facto anthem. Following the War of 1812 and subsequent American wars, other songs would emerge to compete for popularity at public events, among them ”The Star-Spangled Banner”. • p. 184 (March 5, 1986) ”Baby on Bike” is a reference to the rising popularity of ”Baby on Board” warning signs in the 1980s. • p. 185 ((March 7, 1986) This strip is a little bit confusing, as at ﬁrst glance it appears that Snoopy is talking in the last panel. However, on closer inspection, it is revealed that it is in fact the body of Snoopy talking. One of the possible hint to this is the scrunched up line directing the thought balloon to its bearer that only Snoopy’s body parts have. • p. 188 (March 15, 1986) James Gould Cozzens was, as this strip indicates, the author of ”By Love Possessed”. • p. 192 (March 23, 1986) Medic is slang for doctor. • p. 195 (March 30, 1986) The deﬁnition of the word ”ganglion” Linus is referring to is the less known one, meaning ”a small lump most commonly on the hand or foot”. • p. 202-203 (April 15, 1986) What have we done to Fort Zinderneuf ?! Fort Zinderneuf is the main setting of the 1966 ﬁlm Beau Geste and the 1924 novel it is based on. • p. 208 (April 28, 1986-May 3, 1986) The Maypole Dance that is celebrated in U.S. in Secondary or High School dances as part of a May Day celebration are nearly identical to that celebrated in the United Kingdom. Often the Maypole dance will be accompanied by other dances as part of a presentation to the public.The earliest use of the Maypole in America occurred in 1628, where William Bradford, governor of New Plymouth, wrote of an incident where a number of servants, together with the aid of an agent, broke free from their indentured service to create their own colony, setting up a maypole in the center of the settlement, and behaving in such a way as to receive the scorn and disapproval of the nearby colonies, as well as an oﬃcial oﬃcer of the king, bearing patent for the state of Massachusetts. The May Queen or Queen of May is a term which has two distinct but related meanings, as a mythical ﬁgure and as a holiday personiﬁcation. This series is referring to the latter, the May Queen who is a girl who must ride or walk at the front of a parade for May Day celebrations. She wears a white gown to symbolize purity and
Contents usually a tiara or crown. Her duty is to begin the May Day celebrations. She is generally crowned by ﬂowers and makes a speech before the dancing begins. Certain age groups dance round a Maypole celebrating youth and the spring time. • p.226 (June 9, 1985) This the ﬁrst appearance of Lydia. • p. 247 (July 29, 1986) Maynard is misquoting the Scripture Luke 10:7(The laborer is worthy of his hire) as Luke 10:4. • p. 252 (August 10, 1986) Mozart, Rachmaninoﬀ, Prokoﬁev, Franck, Lehar, Tchaikovsky, Elgar, Schubert, and Gershwin were all famous composers. • p. 253 (August 12, 1986) Buck Beagle in the 25th century is a parody of the famous 1930s comic strip Buck Rogers in the 25th century, which also was a favorite of Schulz’s as a youth. • p. 254 (August 16, 1986) Joe Garagiola is an American former catcher in Major League Baseball who later became an announcer and television host, popular for his colorful personality. He was well known for being one of the regular panelists of The Today Show on NBC for many years. He also happened to be a good friend of Schulz’s. • p. 258 Fort Zinderneuf See annotation on pages 202-203 • p. 263, 265-266, 268, 289, 292, 301 (September 4, 1986-September 6, 1986, September 8, 1986, September 13, 1986, September 15, 1986-September 17, 1986, November 5, 1986, November 10, 1986, and December 3, 1986) Tapioca Pudding is a satirical remark on runaway licensing, and her name is a likely parody on Strawberry Shortcake, as both of them are named after a dessert item. • p. 274 (October 1, 1986) The ﬁrst balls were made of natural materials, such as an inﬂated pig bladder, sometimes inside a leather cover, which has given rise to the slang term ”pigskin”. Modern balls are designed by teams of engineers to exacting speciﬁcations, with rubber or plastic bladders, and often with plastic covers. Various leagues and games use diﬀerent balls, though they all have one of the following basic shapes: | a sphere: used in Association football and Gaelic football | a prolate spheroid | either with rounded ends: used in the rugby codes and Australian football | or with more pointed ends: used in American football and Canadian football The precise shape and construction of footballs is typically speciﬁed as part of the rules and regulations. The oldest football still in existence, which is thought to have been made circa 1540, was discovered in the roof of Stirling Castle, Scotland, in 1981. The ball is made of leather (possibly from a deer) and a pig’s bladder. It has a diameter of between 14–16 cm (5.5–6.3 in), weighs 125 g (4.4 oz) and is currently on display at the Smith Art Gallery and Museum in Stirling. • p. 277 (October 8, 1986) A zamboni is an ice resurfacer, which is a vehicle used to clean and smooth the surface of an ice sheet, usually in an ice rink. The ﬁrst ice resurfacer was developed by Frank Zamboni in 1949 in the city of Paramount, California. Zamboni /zæmˈboʊni/ is an internationally registered trademark, though the term is often used as a generic colloquialism for any ice resurfacer. • p. 283 (October 22, 1986) Fog is a 1916 poem by Carl Sandburg that reads:
Contents THE FOG comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on. • p 293 I’ll eat ﬁrst, and then I’ll call the Humane Society! The Humane Society is a group that aims to stop human or animal suﬀering due to cruelty or other reasons, although in many countries, it is now used mostly for societies for the prevention of cruelty to animals (SPCAs). • p.301 (December 3, 1986) This the last appearance of Tapioca Pudding. • p. 308, 310 (December 19, 1986-December 20, 1986, and December 22, 1986, and December 24, 1986) This unnamed kid closely resembles Shermy, a character who disappeared in the year 1976.

ISBN 1606996348) • p. 4 (January 10, 1987) Although it has almost completely disappeared today, ”Kilroy was here”677 used to be a ubiquitous graﬃti in the North American urban landscape. Its original meaning is quite obscure. • p. 13 (January 29, 1987) ”I was born in October.” This is not implausible, as the ﬁrst appearance of Linus is on September 19, 1952, and he then appears a bit younger than one year old. In any case, Peanuts characters are known to age much more slowly than real-world people. • p. 15 (February 2, 1987) The chosen Valedictorian678 is usually the student with the highest ranking among his or her graduating class. Salutatorian679 is an academic title given in the United States to the second highest graduate of the entire graduating class of a speciﬁc discipline. • p. 34 (March 19, 1987) Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Bartley are regulars of the golf club. They used to hire Peppermint Patty and Marcie as caddies (see for example the strip of July 17, 1983, The Complete Peanuts 1983 to 1984 , p. 86.) • p. 227 (June 12, 1988) 1988 is the year when Fax machines became known at large to the general public. They were then expensive and rather big, so they were considered as being primarily oﬃce machines.

Contents • p. 231 (June 21, 1988) After years of legal arguments, the estate of Margaret Mitchell ﬁnally announced on February 3, 1987, that a sequel to Gone with the wind would be authorized.680 The news was a sensation, and generated feverish interest and speculation in the public. On April 26, 1988, the project was formally launched when Warner Books purchased the rights to the sequel for US$4.94 million.681 It was ﬁnally published in September 1991, under the title Scarlett682 , by author Alexandra Ripley. • p. 249 (August 2, 1988) Although nearly inescapable today, answering machines became aﬀordable to the general public only in 1988. Before that, they were not even common in an oﬃce environment: rather, the secretary of a department had the charge of receiving calls and taking messages. • p. 291 (November 8, 1988) Tuesday, November 8, 1988, was a Presidential election day in the United States. George H.W. Bush won against Michael Dukakis. That Sally rooted for Abraham Lincoln is not unexpected, as he is often referred to with reverence by various characters in Peanuts . He must be the favorite president of the gang.

2 Licenses 2.1 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 3, 29 June 2007 Copyright © 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. Preamble The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software and other kinds of works. The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions of a program–to make sure it remains free software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs, and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) oﬀer you this License giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it. For the developers’ and authors’ protection, the GPL clearly explains that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users’ and authors’ sake, the GPL requires that modiﬁed versions be marked as changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to authors of previous versions. Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run modiﬁed versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of protecting users’ freedom to change the software. The systematic pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those products. If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users. Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents. States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could make it eﬀectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that patents cannot be used to render the program non-free. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modiﬁcation follow. TERMS AND CONDITIONS 0. Deﬁnitions. “This License” refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License. “Copyright” also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of works, such as semiconductor masks. “The Program” refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this License. Each licensee is addressed as “you”. “Licensees” and “recipients” may be individuals or organizations. To “modify” a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an exact copy. The resulting work is called a “modiﬁed version” of the earlier work or a work “based on” the earlier work. A “covered work” means either the unmodiﬁed Program or a work based on the Program. To “propagate” a work means to do anything with it that, without permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying, distribution (with or without modiﬁcation), making available to the public, and in some countries other activities as well. To “convey” a work means any kind of propagation that enables other parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying. An interactive user interface displays “Appropriate Legal Notices” to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2) tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion. 1. Source Code. The “source code” for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modiﬁcations to it. “Object code” means any non-source form of a work. A “Standard Interface” means an interface that either is an oﬃcial standard deﬁned by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of interfaces speciﬁed for a particular programming language, one that is widely used among developers working in that language. The “System Libraries” of an executable work include anything, other than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an implementation is available to the public in source code form. A “Major Component”, in this context, means a major essential component (kernel, window system, and so on) of the speciﬁc operating system (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
The “Corresponding Source” for a work in object code form means all the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to control those activities. However, it does not include the work’s System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free programs which are used unmodiﬁed in performing those activities but which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source includes interface deﬁnition ﬁles associated with source ﬁles for the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically linked subprograms that the work is speciﬁcally designed to require, such as by intimate data communication or control ﬂow between those subprograms and other parts of the work. The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding Source. The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that same work. 2. Basic Permissions. All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated conditions are met. This License explicitly aﬃrms your unlimited permission to run the unmodiﬁed Program. The output from running a covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law. You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose of having them make modiﬁcations exclusively for you, or provide you with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you. Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10 makes it unnecessary. 3. Protecting Users’ Legal Rights From AntiCircumvention Law. No covered work shall be deemed part of an eﬀective technological measure under any applicable law fulﬁlling obligations under article 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such measures. When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention is eﬀected by exercising rights under this License with respect to the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or modiﬁcation of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work’s users, your or third parties’ legal rights to forbid circumvention of technological measures. 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies. You may convey verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice; keep intact all notices stating that this License and any non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code; keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all recipients a copy of this License along with the Program. You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey, and you may oﬀer support or warranty protection for a fee. 5. Conveying Modiﬁed Source Versions. You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modiﬁcations to produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions: * a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modiﬁed it, and giving a relevant date. * b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is released under this License and any conditions added under section 7. This requirement modiﬁes the requirement in section 4 to “keep intact all notices”. * c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7 additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts, regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not invalidate such permission if you have separately received it. * d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your work need not make them do so. A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work, and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program, in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an “aggregate” if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation’s users beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other parts of the aggregate. 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms. You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License, in one of these ways: * a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the Corresponding Source ﬁxed on a durable physical medium customarily used for software interchange. * b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a written oﬀer, valid for at least three years and valid for as long as you oﬀer spare parts or customer support for that product model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge. * c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the written oﬀer to provide the Corresponding Source. This alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and only if you received the object code with such an oﬀer, in accord with subsection 6b. * d) Convey the object code by oﬀering access from a designated place (gratis or for a charge), and oﬀer equivalent access to the Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source may be on a
diﬀerent server (operated by you or a third party) that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain clear directions next to the object code saying where to ﬁnd the Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements. * e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding Source of the work are being oﬀered to the general public at no charge under subsection 6d. A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be included in conveying the object code work. A “User Product” is either (1) a “consumer product”, which means any tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family, or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product, doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular product received by a particular user, “normally used” refers to a typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent the only signiﬁcant mode of use of the product. “Installation Information” for a User Product means any methods, procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install and execute modiﬁed versions of a covered work in that User Product from a modiﬁed version of its Corresponding Source. The information must suﬃce to ensure that the continued functioning of the modiﬁed object code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because modiﬁcation has been made. If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or speciﬁcally for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a ﬁxed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install modiﬁed object code on the User Product (for example, the work has been installed in ROM). The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates for a work that has been modiﬁed or installed by the recipient, or for the User Product in which it has been modiﬁed or installed. Access to a network may be denied when the modiﬁcation itself materially and adversely aﬀects the operation of the network or violates the rules and protocols for communication across the network. Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided, in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly documented (and with an implementation available to the public in source code form), and must require no special password or key for unpacking, reading or copying. 7. Additional Terms. “Additional permissions” are terms that supplement the terms of this License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions. Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by this License without regard to the additional permissions. When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work, for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission. Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms: * a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability diﬀerently from the terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or * b) Requiring preservation of speciﬁed reasonable legal notices or author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal Notices displayed by works containing it; or * c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or requiring that modiﬁed versions of such material be marked in reasonable ways as diﬀerent from the original version; or * d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or authors of the material; or * e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or * f) Requiring indemniﬁcation of licensors and authors of that material by anyone who conveys the material (or modiﬁed versions of it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on those licensors and authors. All other non-permissive additional terms are considered “further restrictions” within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is governed by this License along with a term that is a further restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms of that license document, provided that the further restriction does not survive such relicensing or conveying. If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you must place, in the relevant source ﬁles, a statement of the additional terms that apply to those ﬁles, or a notice indicating where to ﬁnd the applicable terms. Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions; the above requirements apply either way. 8. Termination. You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third paragraph of section 11). However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and ﬁnally terminates
your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after the cessation. Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notiﬁes you of the violation by some reasonable means, this is the ﬁrst time you have received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after your receipt of the notice. Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same material under section 10. 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies. You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However, nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so. 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients. Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License. An “entity transaction” is a transaction transferring control of an organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered work results from an entity transaction, each party to that transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever licenses to the work the party’s predecessor in interest had or could give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable eﬀorts. You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the rights granted or aﬃrmed under this License. For example, you may not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, oﬀering for sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it. 11. Patents. A “contributor” is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The work thus licensed is called the contributor’s “contributor version”. A contributor’s “essential patent claims” are all patent claims owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version, but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a consequence of further modiﬁcation of the contributor version. For purposes of this deﬁnition, “control” includes the right to grant patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of this License. Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free patent license under the contributor’s essential patent claims, to make, use, sell, oﬀer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and propagate the contents of its contributor version. In the following three paragraphs, a “patent license” is any express agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to sue for patent infringement). To “grant” such a patent license to a party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a patent against the party. If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license, and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a publicly available network server or other readily accessible means, then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the beneﬁt of the patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent license to downstream recipients. “Knowingly relying” means you have actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the covered work in a country, or your recipient’s use of the covered work in a country, would infringe one or more identiﬁable patents in that country that you have reason to believe are valid. If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify or convey a speciﬁc copy of the covered work, then the patent license you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered work and works based on it. A patent license is “discriminatory” if it does not include within the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are speciﬁcally granted under this License. You may not convey a covered work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily for and in connection with speciﬁc products or compilations that contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement, or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007. Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law. 12. No Surrender of Others’ Freedom. If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey the Program, the only way you could satisfy
both those terms and this License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program. 13. Use with the GNU Aﬀero General Public License. Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed under version 3 of the GNU Aﬀero General Public License into a single combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work, but the special requirements of the GNU Aﬀero General Public License, section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the combination as such. 14. Revised Versions of this License. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the GNU General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may diﬀer in detail to address new problems or concerns. Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program speciﬁes that a certain numbered version of the GNU General Public License “or any later version” applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program speciﬁes that a proxy can decide which future versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy’s public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you to choose that version for the Program.
Later license versions may give you additional or diﬀerent permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a later version. 15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. 16. Limitation of Liability.
IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided above cannot be given local legal eﬀect according to their terms, reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a copy of the Program in return for a fee.
You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program. If not, see
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
Copyright (C) This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type ‘show w’. This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions; type ‘show c’ for details.
To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source ﬁle to most eﬀectively state the exclusion of warranty; and each ﬁle should have at least the “copyright” line and a pointer to where the full notice is found. Copyright (C) This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version. This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License for more details.
Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
The hypothetical commands ‘show w’ and ‘show c’ should show the appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course, your program’s commands might be diﬀerent; for a GUI interface, you would use an “about box”. You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school, if any, to sign a “copyright disclaimer” for the program, if necessary. For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see . The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General Public License instead of this License. But ﬁrst, please read .
2.2 GNU Free Documentation License Version 1.3, 3 November 2008 Copyright © 2000, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc. Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. 0. PREAMBLE The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document ”free” in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the eﬀective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modiﬁcations made by others. This License is a kind of ”copyleft”, which means that derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense. It complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft license designed for free software. We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free software, because free software needs free documentation: a free program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the software does. But this License is not limited to software manuals; it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or whether it is published as a printed book. We recommend this License principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference. 1. APPLICABILITY AND DEFINITIONS This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be distributed under the terms of this License. Such a notice grants a world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in duration, to use that work under the conditions stated herein. The ”Document”, below, refers to any such manual or work. Any member of the public is a licensee, and is addressed as ”you”. You accept the license if you copy, modify or distribute the work in a way requiring permission under copyright law. A ”Modiﬁed Version” of the Document means any work containing the Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with modiﬁcations and/or translated into another language. A ”Secondary Section” is a named appendix or a front-matter section of the Document that deals exclusively with the relationship of the publishers or authors of the Document to the Document’s overall subject (or to related matters) and contains nothing that could fall directly within that overall subject. (Thus, if the Document is in part a textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any mathematics.) The relationship could be a matter of historical connection with the subject or with related matters, or of legal, commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding them. The ”Invariant Sections” are certain Secondary Sections whose titles are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. If a section does not ﬁt the above deﬁnition of Secondary then it is not allowed to be designated as Invariant. The Document may contain zero Invariant Sections. If the Document does not identify any Invariant Sections then there are none. The ”Cover Texts” are certain short passages of text that are listed, as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. A Front-Cover Text may be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover Text may be at most 25 words. A ”Transparent” copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy, represented in a format whose speciﬁcation is available to the general public, that is suitable for revising the document straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for images composed of pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input to text formatters. A copy made in an otherwise Transparent ﬁle format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been arranged to thwart or discourage subsequent modiﬁcation by readers is not Transparent. An image format is not Transparent if used for any substantial amount of text. A copy that is not ”Transparent” is called ”Opaque”. Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input format, SGML or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standardconforming simple HTML, PostScript or PDF designed for human modiﬁcation. Examples of transparent image formats include PNG, XCF and JPG. Opaque formats include proprietary formats that can be read and edited only by proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or processing tools are not generally available, and the machine-generated HTML, PostScript or PDF produced by some word processors for output purposes only. The ”Title Page” means, for a printed book, the title page itself, plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material this License requires to appear in the title page. For works in formats which do not have any title page as such, ”Title Page” means the text near the most prominent appearance of the work’s title, preceding the beginning of the body of the text. The ”publisher” means any person or entity that distributes copies of the Document to the public. A section ”Entitled XYZ” means a named subunit of the Document whose title either is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in parentheses
following text that translates XYZ in another language. (Here XYZ stands for a speciﬁc section name mentioned below, such as ”Acknowledgements”, ”Dedications”, ”Endorsements”, or ”History”.) To ”Preserve the Title” of such a section when you modify the Document means that it remains a section ”Entitled XYZ” according to this deﬁnition. The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which states that this License applies to the Document. These Warranty Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties: any other implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has no eﬀect on the meaning of this License. 2. VERBATIM COPYING You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this License. You may not use technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further copying of the copies you make or distribute. However, you may accept compensation in exchange for copies. If you distribute a large enough number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3. You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and you may publicly display copies. 3. COPYING IN QUANTITY If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have printed covers) of the Document, numbering more than 100, and the Document’s license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on the back cover. Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify you as the publisher of these copies. The front cover must present the full title with all words of the title equally prominent and visible. You may add other material on the covers in addition. Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated as verbatim copying in other respects. If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to ﬁt legibly, you should put the ﬁrst ones listed (as many as ﬁt reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent pages. If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering more than 100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy a computer-network location from which the general networkusing public has access to download using public-standard network protocols a complete Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material. If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps, when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated location until at least one year after the last time you distribute an Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or retailers) of that edition to the public. It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document. 4. MODIFICATIONS You may copy and distribute a Modiﬁed Version of the Document under the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release the Modiﬁed Version under precisely this License, with the Modiﬁed Version ﬁlling the role of the Document, thus licensing distribution and modiﬁcation of the Modiﬁed Version to whoever possesses a copy of it. In addition, you must do these things in the Modiﬁed Version: * A. Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct from that of the Document, and from those of previous versions (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section of the Document). You may use the same title as a previous version if the original publisher of that version gives permission. * B. List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities responsible for authorship of the modiﬁcations in the Modiﬁed Version, together with at least ﬁve of the principal authors of the Document (all of its principal authors, if it has fewer than ﬁve), unless they release you from this requirement. * C. State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the Modiﬁed Version, as the publisher. * D. Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document. * E. Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modiﬁcations adjacent to the other copyright notices. * F. Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice giving the public permission to use the Modiﬁed Version under the terms of this License, in the form shown in the Addendum below. * G. Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections and required Cover Texts given in the Document’s license notice. * H. Include an unaltered copy of this License. * I. Preserve the section Entitled ”History”, Preserve its Title, and add to it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors, and publisher of the Modiﬁed Version as given on the Title Page. If there is no section Entitled ”History” in the Document, create one stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modiﬁed Version as stated in the previous sentence. * J. Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for public access to a Transparent copy of the Document, and likewise the network locations given in the Document for previous versions it was based on. These may be placed in the ”History” section. You may omit a network location for a work that was published at least four years before the Document itself, or if the original publisher of the version it refers to gives permission. * K. For any section Entitled ”Acknowledgements” or ”Dedications”, Preserve the Title of the section, and preserve in the section all the substance and tone of each of the contributor acknowledgements and/or dedications given therein. * L. Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document, unaltered in their text and
in their titles. Section numbers or the equivalent are not considered part of the section titles. * M. Delete any section Entitled ”Endorsements”. Such a section may not be included in the Modiﬁed Version. * N. Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled ”Endorsements” or to conﬂict in title with any Invariant Section. * O. Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers. If the Modiﬁed Version includes new front-matter sections or appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no material copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or all of these sections as invariant. To do this, add their titles to the list of Invariant Sections in the Modiﬁed Version’s license notice. These titles must be distinct from any other section titles. You may add a section Entitled ”Endorsements”, provided it contains nothing but endorsements of your Modiﬁed Version by various parties—for example, statements of peer review or that the text has been approved by an organization as the authoritative deﬁnition of a standard. You may add a passage of up to ﬁve words as a Front-Cover Text, and a passage of up to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to the end of the list of Cover Texts in the Modiﬁed Version. Only one passage of Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text may be added by (or through arrangements made by) any one entity. If the Document already includes a cover text for the same cover, previously added by you or by arrangement made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of, you may not add another; but you may replace the old one, on explicit permission from the previous publisher that added the old one. The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License give permission to use their names for publicity for or to assert or imply endorsement of any Modiﬁed Version. 5. COMBINING DOCUMENTS You may combine the Document with other documents released under this License, under the terms deﬁned in section 4 above for modiﬁed versions, provided that you include in the combination all of the Invariant Sections of all of the original documents, unmodiﬁed, and list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in its license notice, and that you preserve all their Warranty Disclaimers. The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single copy. If there are multiple Invariant Sections with the same name but diﬀerent contents, make the title of each such section unique by adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original author or publisher of that section if known, or else a unique number. Make the same adjustment to the section titles in the list of Invariant Sections in the license notice of the combined work. In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled ”History” in the various original documents, forming one section Entitled ”History”; likewise combine any sections Entitled ”Acknowledgements”, and any sections Entitled ”Dedications”. You must delete all sections Entitled ”Endorsements”. 6. COLLECTIONS OF DOCUMENTS You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents released under this License, and replace the individual copies of this License in the various documents with a single copy that is included in the collection, provided that you follow the rules of this License for verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other respects. You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute it individually under this License, provided you insert a copy of this License into the extracted document, and follow this License in all other respects regarding verbatim copying of that document. 7. AGGREGATION WITH INDEPENDENT WORKS A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate and independent documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an ”aggregate” if the copyright resulting from the compilation is not used to limit the legal rights of the compilation’s users beyond what the individual works permit. When the Document is included in an aggregate, this License does not apply to the other works in the aggregate which are not themselves derivative works of the Document. If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these copies of the Document, then if the Document is less than one half of the entire aggregate, the Document’s Cover Texts may be placed on covers that bracket the Document within the aggregate, or the electronic equivalent of covers if the Document is in electronic form. Otherwise they must appear on printed covers that bracket the whole aggregate. 8. TRANSLATION Translation is considered a kind of modiﬁcation, so you may distribute translations of the Document under the terms of section 4. Replacing Invariant Sections with translations requires special permission from their copyright holders, but you may include translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the original versions of these Invariant Sections. You may include a translation of this License, and all the license notices in the Document, and any Warranty Disclaimers, provided that you also include the original English version of this License and the original versions of those notices and disclaimers. In case of a disagreement between the translation and the original version of this License or a notice or disclaimer, the original version will prevail. If a section in the Document is Entitled ”Acknowledgements”, ”Dedications”, or ”History”, the requirement (section 4) to Preserve its Title
(section 1) will typically require changing the actual title. 9. TERMINATION You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and ﬁnally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after the cessation. Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notiﬁes you of the violation by some reasonable means, this is the ﬁrst time you have received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after your receipt of the notice. Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently reinstated, receipt of a copy of some or all of the same material does not give you any rights to use it. 10. FUTURE REVISIONS OF THIS LICENSE The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions of the GNU Free Documentation License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may diﬀer in detail to address new problems or concerns. See http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/. Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number. If the Document speciﬁes that a particular numbered version of this License ”or any later version” applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that speciﬁed version or of any later version that has been published (not as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation. If the Document does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published (not as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation. If the Document speciﬁes that a proxy can decide which future versions of this License can be used, that proxy’s public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you to choose that version for the Document. 11. RELICENSING ”Massive Multiauthor Collaboration Site” (or ”MMC Site”) means any World Wide Web server that publishes copyrightable works and also provides prominent facilities for anybody to edit those works. A public wiki that anybody can edit is an example of such a server. A ”Massive Multiauthor Collaboration” (or ”MMC”) contained in the site means any set of copyrightable works thus published on the MMC site. ”CC-BY-SA” means the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license published by Creative Commons Corporation, a not-forproﬁt corporation with a principal place of business in San Francisco, California, as well as future copyleft versions of that license published by that same organization. ”Incorporate” means to publish or republish a Document, in whole or in part, as part of another Document. An MMC is ”eligible for relicensing” if it is licensed under this License, and if all works that were ﬁrst published under this License somewhere other than this MMC, and subsequently incorporated in whole or in part into the MMC, (1) had no cover texts or invariant sections, and (2) were thus incorporated prior to November 1, 2008. The operator of an MMC Site may republish an MMC contained in the site under CC-BY-SA on the same site at any time before August 1, 2009, provided the MMC is eligible for relicensing. ADDENDUM: How to use this License for your documents To use this License in a document you have written, include a copy of the License in the document and put the following copyright and license notices just after the title page: Copyright (C) YEAR YOUR NAME. Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.3 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover Texts. A copy of the license is included in the section entitled ”GNU Free Documentation License”. If you have Invariant Sections, Front-Cover Texts and Back-Cover Texts, replace the ”with … Texts.” line with this: with the Invariant Sections being LIST THEIR TITLES, with the Front-Cover Texts being LIST, and with the Back-Cover Texts being LIST. If you have Invariant Sections without Cover Texts, or some other combination of the three, merge those two alternatives to suit the situation. If your document contains nontrivial examples of program code, we recommend releasing these examples in parallel under your choice of free software license, such as the GNU General Public License, to permit their use in free software.
2.3 GNU Lesser General Public License GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 3, 29 June 2007 Copyright © 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
The “Corresponding Application Code” for a Combined Work means the object code and/or source code for the Application, including any data and utility programs needed for reproducing the Combined Work from the Application, but excluding the System Libraries of the Combined Work. 1. Exception to Section 3 of the GNU GPL.
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
You may convey a covered work under sections 3 and 4 of this License without being bound by section 3 of the GNU GPL. 2. Conveying Modiﬁed Versions.
This version of the GNU Lesser General Public License incorporates the terms and conditions of version 3 of the GNU General Public License, supplemented by the additional permissions listed below. 0. Additional Deﬁnitions.
If you modify a copy of the Library, and, in your modiﬁcations, a facility refers to a function or data to be supplied by an Application that uses the facility (other than as an argument passed when the facility is invoked), then you may convey a copy of the modiﬁed version:
As used herein, “this License” refers to version 3 of the GNU Lesser General Public License, and the “GNU GPL” refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
* a) under this License, provided that you make a good faith eﬀort to ensure that, in the event an Application does not supply the function or data, the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of its purpose remains meaningful, or * b) under the GNU GPL, with none of the additional permissions of this License applicable to that copy.
“The Library” refers to a covered work governed by this License, other than an Application or a Combined Work as deﬁned below.
3. Object Code Incorporating Material from Library Header Files. An “Application” is any work that makes use of an interface provided by the Library, but which is not otherwise based on the Library. Deﬁning a subclass of a class deﬁned by the Library is deemed a mode of using an interface provided by the Library. A “Combined Work” is a work produced by combining or linking an Application with the Library. The particular version of the Library with which the Combined Work was made is also called the “Linked Version”. The “Minimal Corresponding Source” for a Combined Work means the Corresponding Source for the Combined Work, excluding any source code for portions of the Combined Work that, considered in isolation, are based on the Application, and not on the Linked Version.
The object code form of an Application may incorporate material from a header ﬁle that is part of the Library. You may convey such object code under terms of your choice, provided that, if the incorporated material is not limited to numerical parameters, data structure layouts and accessors, or small macros, inline functions and templates (ten or fewer lines in length), you do both of the following: * a) Give prominent notice with each copy of the object code that the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by this License. * b) Accompany the object code with a copy of the GNU GPL and this license document. 4. Combined Works.
You may convey a Combined Work under terms of your choice that, taken together, eﬀectively do not restrict modiﬁcation of the portions of the Library contained in the Combined Work and reverse engineering for debugging such modiﬁcations, if you also do each of the following:
You may place library facilities that are a work based on the Library side by side in a single library together with other library facilities that are not Applications and are not covered by this License, and convey such a combined library under terms of your choice, if you do both of the following:
* a) Give prominent notice with each copy of the Combined Work that the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by this License. * b) Accompany the Combined Work with a copy of the GNU GPL and this license document. * c) For a Combined Work that displays copyright notices during execution, include the copyright notice for the Library among these notices, as well as a reference directing the user to the copies of the GNU GPL and this license document. * d) Do one of the following: o 0) Convey the Minimal Corresponding Source under the terms of this License, and the Corresponding Application Code in a form suitable for, and under terms that permit, the user to recombine or relink the Application with a modiﬁed version of the Linked Version to produce a modiﬁed Combined Work, in the manner speciﬁed by section 6 of the GNU GPL for conveying Corresponding Source. o 1) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (a) uses at run time a copy of the Library already present on the user’s computer system, and (b) will operate properly with a modiﬁed version of the Library that is interface-compatible with the Linked Version. * e) Provide Installation Information, but only if you would otherwise be required to provide such information under section 6 of the GNU GPL, and only to the extent that such information is necessary to install and execute a modiﬁed version of the Combined Work produced by recombining or relinking the Application with a modiﬁed version of the Linked Version. (If you use option 4d0, the Installation Information must accompany the Minimal Corresponding Source and Corresponding Application Code. If you use option 4d1, you must provide the Installation Information in the manner speciﬁed by section 6 of the GNU GPL for conveying Corresponding Source.)
* a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work based on the Library, uncombined with any other library facilities, conveyed under the terms of this License. * b) Give prominent notice with the combined library that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining where to ﬁnd the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.

6. Revised Versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may diﬀer in detail to address new problems or concerns. Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Library as you received it speciﬁes that a certain numbered version of the GNU Lesser General Public License “or any later version” applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that published version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Library as you received it does not specify a version number of the GNU Lesser General Public License, you may choose any version of the GNU Lesser General Public License ever published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Library as you received it speciﬁes that a proxy can decide whether future versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License shall apply, that proxy’s public statement of acceptance of any version is permanent authorization for you to choose that version for the Library.
