# 導入部

### 我々のゴール

LilyPond のきっかけは2人の音楽仲間がコンピュータで印刷したつまらない見栄えの楽譜を超えようと決意したことに始まります。すべての音楽家は美しい楽譜を好みます。それなら、我々プログラマーは美しい楽譜を作り出すソフトウェアを作ることはできないでしょうか？

### LilyPond の機能

• 特徴: LilyPond で何ができるのか？
• : 実際に楽譜を見てみたい！
• 自由: LilyPond はフリー ソフトウェアです。
• バックグラウンド: 我々のコンピュータ審美学。

## 特徴

### 優美

#### すぐれた伝統的な譜刻

LilyPond は、音楽家が美しく、読みやすい楽譜を作り出すことを可能にします。LilyPond の開発者コミュニティは、美しく譜刻された楽譜を生み出す強力な譜刻ソフトウェアを開発するために何千時間も費やしてきました。LilyPond の書式設定、フォント デザイン、それにアルゴリズムはすべて、手で譜刻された最高品質の楽譜を参考にしています。LilyPond の出力は、最高の職人によって作られた伝統的な楽譜と同じくらい、力強く、バランスがとれていて、美しい見栄えがします。これらのことについて、エッセー でさらに説明しています。

### 使いやすさ

#### テキスト ベース入力

LilyPond は ASCII 入力を受け付けます。これは、お好みのテキスト エディタで素早く、快適に作成することができます。マウスを使うわずらわしさはありません。入力にはすべての情報が保持されるため、複雑なコマンドの羅列を覚える必要はありません。後で参照するために、入力を保存しておけば良いだけです。

#### アクセス性

テキスト ベースの入力は、重い身体障がいを持つユーザであっても、楽譜を記述することを可能にします。キーボードやマウスを扱うことができない、上肢障がいのあるユーザは、音声認識ソフトウェアを使って、LilyPond ファイルを編集することができます。盲目のユーザでさえも、読み上げソフトウェアを使って、LilyPond ファイルを記述することができます – これは、グラフィカル ベースの楽譜作成プログラムでは不可能なことです。

#### 拡張性の高い設計

すべての設定は、個人的な写植上の好みに合わせて変更可能です。仮にそれが不十分な場合でも、強力な LISP 言語の変種である組込みのスクリプト言語 Scheme があります。全てはの設定、変数、それに関数は、 広範囲に亘るプログラム リファレンス マニュアルの中にドキュメント化されています。

### 環境

#### フリー ソフトウェア

LilyPond は無料でダウンロードすることができます！そうです – 無料です。ダウンロード ページから入手してください。

LilyPond は (口語的な意味でも) フリーなソフトウェアです。ソース コードが公開されており、変更もコピーも認められています。ですから、バグにいらいらしていたり、仕様面で不満があるのなら、自分でそれを追加したり、他の人にそれを注文することが出来ます。

#### 素晴らしいサポート

LilyPond は一般的なプラットフォーム全て (GNU/Linux, MacOS, そして Windows) で動きます。 LilyPond には広範囲のドキュメントと数百の実例ファイルが付属します。Lilypond ユーザー メーリング リストで質問に答えてくれる活発なユーザ コミュニティがありますし、開発チームは問題が早期に解決されるよう活動しています。

### どうですか？

まだ迷っていますか？ちょっとした をいくつか見てください。LilyPond を試してみる決心がついたのなら、まず テキスト入力 を読んでください。

### どうですか？

まだ迷っていますか？LilyPond は 自由 をもたらすフリー ソフトウェアです。LilyPond を試してみる決心がついたのなら、まず テキスト入力 を読んでください。

## 自由

### フリー ソフトウェア

GNU LilyPond は熱心な人々からなるコミュニティによって作成され、維持されています。LilyPond は、すべての人にプログラムの修正、変更、拡張を許可する GNU General Public LicenseGNU Free Documentation License に基づいて公開されています。美しい楽譜を作るのに、何万円もするソフトウェアは必要ありません！

### ユーザにとっての利益は何なのか？

• 無料: ダウンロードして試してみてください！何か失うものはありますか？
• 共有: このプログラムを気に入ったのなら、コピーを友人、先生、生徒、同僚にあげることができます！
• ソースを入手可能: LilyPond がどのように記譜を行うのかに興味を持ったのなら、それを実際に見ることができます。
• 拡張性: 機能やバグ修正を追加したり、機能変更を行うことができます。プログラマでなければ、そういった仕事をする人を雇うことができます。

このことはアマチュア音楽家には意味のないことかもしれませんが、ソフトウェアの拡張性は、本格的な作曲家、企業、大学にとっては非常に価値のあるものです。

• 将来の安全性: 営利企業が破産した場合、その企業の製品に基づく電子音楽はどうなるでしょうか？LilyPond にはこういったこととは無縁です。たとえ開発チームが全員辞めたとしても (まったくあり得ない話ですが)、このプログラムは合法的にコピー、変更、配布することができます。

### 何故 LilyPond の開発者たちはこのプログラムを無料にしておくのか？

たいていの人たちは、LilyPond の開発を趣味やボランティア活動と見なしています。ですから、この質問の本質はこうです – “なぜボランティア活動を行うのか？”。

• 楽しい: ゴールに向かって取り組むことは楽しいことです。特に、チームで取り組んでいる場合は！
• ゴールの共有: 我々は皆、美しい楽譜を望んでいます。しかしながら、すべての状況を処理できるプログラムを作成できるような熟練者はほとんどいません (そして、皆、時間がありません！)。皆で取り組むことで – ある人は自動連桁のコードを改良し、ある人はスラーの形を改良し、またある人は、それらの機能の使い方を説明するドキュメントを記述します – 個人々々ができる努力からゴールを達成することができます。
• “与える文化”: フリー ソフトウェア運動は多くの偉大なソフトウェア プロジェクトを生み出してきました – GNU/Linux, Mozilla Firefox, それに Battle for Wesnoth など。 これらのプロジェクトの恩恵を受けて、そのコミュニティに “恩返し” をしたいと考えている開発者もいます。
• 経験: フリー ソフトウェア プロジェクトに貢献することは、プログラミング、ドキュメントの記述、デザインを訓練するための素晴らしい方法です。この経験により、仕事の依頼を受けたり、奨学金を得た開発者もいます。

テキスト入力 ### 楽譜を “コンパイル” する (クリックすると拡大します) LilyPond は コンパイル システムです: 音符を保持しているテキスト ファイルに対して実行します。結果として得られる出力は、スクリーン上で閲覧するか、プリントします。いくつかの点で、LilyPond はグラフィカルな楽譜編集ソフトウェアよりもプログラミング言語に似ています。 ツールバーから音符をドラッグして、楽譜に配置するのではありません。テキストを打ち込むことで楽譜を記述します。このテキストは LilyPond によって解析 (あるいは “コンパイル”) され、美しく譜刻された楽譜が生成されます。 グラフィカル ユーザ インターフェイスに慣れている人は、新しい方法を学ぶ必要があるかもしれません。 しかしながら、そうする価値は間違いなくあります！ Note: テキスト入力についての簡単な概要を用意しています – これは、見た目ほど難しいものではありません！提示した例の詳細を理解できなくても心配ありません。 初心者向けドキュメントがゆっくりとしたペースで説明しています。 #### A B C と同じくらい簡単 音符は英字と数字で表現されます。特殊なコマンドはバックスラッシュと一緒に入力します。 臨時記号は違う名前で入力します。シャープには -is を、フラットには -es を付けます (これらは、オランダ語の音符名で、他の言語用もあります)。LilyPondがどこに臨時記号を付けるかを判断します。 #### ポップ ミュージック リード譜を作るために、コードと歌詞を一緒に配置します: #### オーケストラ パート 入力ファイルには楽曲の音符が入っています。スコアとパート譜を、一つの入力ファイルから作り出すことができます。そのため、音符を変更すると常にパートとスコア両方に影響します。音符を共有するには、その音楽を変数に割り当てます: この変数は、単一のパートに使うことができます (ここでは、移調され、複小節休符はまとめられています): 同じ変数をフル スコアで使うことができます (ここでは、コンサート ピッチです): #### 初心者のためのドキュメント 多くのユーザがこのような方法で楽譜を入力することに違和感を覚えます。そのため、新しいユーザを援助するために、学習 から始まる広範囲なドキュメントを用意してあります。学習マニュアルは LilyPond を始めるのにぴったりです。ユーザが感じるであろう疑問に対する答えをたくさん含んでいます。 バグだと不満を漏らす前に、学習マニュアルを読んでください！LilyPond は設計どおりに機能しているのですが、新しいユーザは LilyPond が正しく機能していないと思い込むことがしばしばあります。 もっと掘り下げた情報が マニュアル にあります。 #### より簡単な編集環境 (クリックすると拡大します) LilyPond は元来、最高品質の楽譜を作り出すことを目的としています。グラフィカル ユーザ インターフェイス (GUI) を作ることは、本来の趣旨から外れます。しかしながら、LilyPond 入力ファイルの作成をより簡単にすることを目指しているプロジェクトが別に存在します。 いくつか編集環境は、構文ハイライト、自動コマンド補完、それに作成済みのテンプレートを用意しています。 また、他のプログラムでは、グラフィカルな楽譜を直接操作することができる GUI を提供しているものもあります。更なる情報は、より簡単な編集手段 を読んでください。 ### どうですか？ LilyPond をダウンロードする ところまで来ました。まだ迷っていますか？より簡単な編集手段 を読んでください。 ## より簡単な編集手段 ### LilyPondTool (クリックすると拡大します) テキスト エディタ jEdit 用のプラグインである LilyPondTool は、LilyPond 楽譜を編集するための最も機能豊富なテキスト ベース ツールの 1 つです。 歌詞サポート機能を持つ文書ウイザードでより容易に文書をセットアップすることができ、進化したポイント＆クリック サポートを持つ埋め込み PDF ビューアを備えています。 ### Frescobaldi (クリックすると拡大します) Frescobaldi はビルドイン PDF ビューアを持つ、軽量でパワフルな LilyPond 用の楽譜・テキストエディタです。簡単に使うことができ、すべての OS (Linux、Mac OS X、それに Windows) で実行できます。 ### グラフィカルな環境: Denemo (クリックすると拡大) Denemo は、LilyPond ソース コードを生成し、演奏することもできるグラフィカルなエディタです。LilyPond ソースコードをグラフィカル ビューと並べて表示することができます。音符や和音等に LilyPond が処理可能な調整を加えることができ、それを Denemo ファイルとして保存することができるため、ユーザはグラフィカル環境で楽譜を編集することができます。 LilyPond テキストの中でカーソルを動かすと、グラフィカル ビューの中でもカーソルが動きます。調整で構文エラーが起きると、テキスト ビューで該当部分がハイライトされます。 ### テキスト エディタ Emacs は、多くのコンピュータ言語に対応する言語検出機能を持つテキスト エディタです。Emacs には高い拡張性があり、統合開発環境として使用することができます。LilyPond ソース ファイルに作成するための言語定義を提供する ‘lilypond モード’ があります。 また、LilyPond 開発者の 1 人が Emacs メジャーモード lyqi を作成しています。 Vim は最小限度の機能を持つテキスト エディタであり、古い Unix vi エディタの機能拡張版です。このプログラムも拡張やコンフィグレーションを行うことができます。 一般的に言って、すでに Emacs や Vim に慣れているのでなければ、LilyPond 入力ファイルを記述するために他のエディタを使うべきです。 Emacs と Vim をセットアップするための更なる情報が テキスト エディタ サポート にあります。 MacOS X 用のエディタ TexShop を拡張して、 エディタから LilyPond, lilypond-book それに convert-ly を実行させることができます。 拡張機能は以下で入手できます: http://users.dimi.uniud.it/~nicola.vitacolonna/home/content/lilypond-scripts  ### LilyPond コードをエクスポートできるプログラム #### 楽譜、タブ、MIDI エディタ: • Canorus: 楽譜エディタで、LilyPond コードをエクスポートできが、まだベータ版です。テスターを歓迎しています。 • NtEd: Cairo ライブラリをベースにした楽譜エディタで、試験的に LilyPond へのエクスポートをサポートしています。 • MuseScore: 楽譜エディタで、完全ではありませんが LilyPond コードをエクスポートできます。活発に開発が行われています。 • NW2LY: NoteWorthy で記譜した曲を LilyPond に変換する C# プログラムです。 • Ripple: 総譜とパート譜の作成を支援するプログラムで、異なる楽譜ソースから総譜やパート譜を作成するモードがあります。 • Rosegarden: オーディオ・MIDI シーケンサであり、単一譜を扱える楽譜エディタでもあります。 • Rumor: リアルタイムに単声の MIDI を LilyPond に変換します。 • TuxGuitar: マルチトラックなタブ譜のエディタ・プレイヤで、楽譜ビューアを持ち、LilyPond コードのエクスポートが可能です。 #### Algorithmic code generators • Abjad, a Python API for Formalized Score Control designed to help composers build up complex pieces of LilyPond notation in an iterative and incremental way. • FOMUS, a LISP library to generate music notation from computer music software environments. • Strasheela, an environment built on top of the Mozart/Oz constraint programming language. ### 活発には開発されていない他のプログラム • LilyKDEFrescobaldi に置き換わり、 KDE 3.5 用の LilyKDE3 と KDE 4.1 用の lilypond-KDE4 だけが存在します。 • NoteEdit, which imported MusicXML, has been forked into NtEd and Canorus. • LilyComp is a graphical note entry program, acting much like a number-pad which produces lilypond notes. ### どうですか？ LilyPond をダウンロードする ところまで来ました。 まだ迷っていますか？多くの作曲家、音楽家、それに指揮者が LilyPond 入力フォーマットで記述することを学んでいます。経験を積んだユーザは、LilyPond を使うことで、ピアノやマウス＆GUI を使うよりも短時間で総譜を入力できるとレポートしてさえいます！LilyPond が提供する 特徴, , あるいは 自由 を読み返してみてください。また、ユーザの 成果物人々の評価 を読んでみてください。さらに、伝統的な譜刻の審美性をコンピュータで実現するための我々のアプローチが バックグラウンド で説明されています。 ### 法律用語 # ダウンロード ##

Version 3, 29 June 2007

 Copyright © 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. http://fsf.org/ 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

1. Definitions.

“This License” refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.

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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Protecting Users’ Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention 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.

5. 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.

6. 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:

1. The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified it, and giving a relevant date.
2. 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”.
3. 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.
4. 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.

7. 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:

1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.

“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:

1. Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
2. 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
3. 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
4. Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or authors of the material; or
5. Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
6. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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.

13. 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.

14. 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.

15. 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.

16. 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.

17. 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.

18. 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.

## How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs

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.

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.

 one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does. Copyright (C) year name of author 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. You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program. If not, see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/. 

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:

 program Copyright (C) year name of author 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. 

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 http://www.gnu.org/licenses/.

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 http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html.

### GNU Free Documentation License 1.1

Version 1.3, 3 November 2008

 Copyright © 2000, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc. http://fsf.org/ Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. 
1. 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.

2. 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 standard-conforming 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.

3. 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.

4. 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 network-using 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.

5. 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:

1. 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.
2. 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.
3. State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the Modified Version, as the publisher.
4. Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.
6. 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.
7. Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections and required Cover Texts given in the Document’s license notice.
8. Include an unaltered copy of this License.
9. 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.
10. 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.
11. 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.
12. 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.
13. Delete any section Entitled “Endorsements”. Such a section may not be included in the Modified Version.
14. Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled “Endorsements” or to conflict in title with any Invariant Section.
15. 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.

6. 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.”

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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.

“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.

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.

### 通知

#### LilyPond レポート

LilyPond のことを知る最も簡単な方法は、我々のコミュニティのニュース レター LilyPond レポートを読むことです。

http://news.lilynet.net


#### リリース メーリング リスト: info-lilypond@gnu.org

このメーリング リストは小さなボリュームの読むだけのメーリング リストで、新しいリリースが通知されます。

### 開発者の議論

#### バグ メーリング リスト: bug-lilypond@gnu.org

バグについての議論はここで行われます。

Note: バグ リストにメールを送る前に バグ報告 のガイドラインを呼んで下さい。

### デリケートな内容の email

プライベートな問題は Graham Percival (プロジェクト マネージャ) に送るべきです。彼はそのことについて関係者と議論します。

## 最小化例

### なぜそれを作る必要があるの?

• 例が簡単なほど、援助者は素早くそれを理解して手助けすることができます。
• 最小化例は、あなたが自分自身で問題を解決する努力した証明になります。入力ファイルの大部分を送った場合、援助を期待していないかのように見られてしまいます。
• 最小化例を作ることは、あなたは何が起きているかを理解する手助けにになります。多くの問題報告は最小化例を作る努力をすることで回避できるものです。最小化例の中で “バグ” を再現できないのであれば、それはバグではなく、LilyPond への理解不足である可能性が高いです！

### どうやって作るの？

• \version 番号を含めてください。
• 小さくしてください！スペースやページ レイアウトについての例は多くの小節を必要とするかもしれませんが、多くの問題は 1 小節以下に作り直すことができます。
• 例を作ろうとする時、ファイルの部分々々をコメント アウト (%%{ … %}) してみてください。あなたの考えていることを残しながらコメント アウトできるものがあれば、それを削除してください！
• バグと関係がないのであれば、複雑な音符、調、拍子を使わないで下さい。
• バグと関係がないのであれば、\override\set コマンドを使わないでください。
• 強制ではありませんが、得ようとしている出力を示す画像を添付してください。

### 最小化例はどのようなもの？

\version "2.14.1"
\include "english.ly"

\score {
\new Staff {
\key d \major
\numericTimeSignature
\time 2/4
<cs' d'' b''>16 <cs' d'' b''>8.
%% Here: the tie on the D's looks funny
%% Too tall? Left-hand endpoint is not aligned with the B tie?
~
<cs' d'' b''>8 [ <b d'' a''> ]
}
}


これで大きすぎるわけではありませんが、本当の最小化例は以下のようになります:

\version "2.14.1"
{
% middle tie looks funny here:
<c' d'' b''>8. ~ <c' d'' b''>8
}


## バグ報告

クラッシュや記述どおりの出力を得られない入力があるのなら、それはバグです。

### ステップ 1: 既知のバグ

すでに把握しているバグがあります。以下をチェックしてください:

http://code.google.com/p/lilypond/issues/list


Note: バグ トラッカーに直接バグ報告を 送らないで下さい。トラッカーに登録された問題については、自由に追加情報を書き込んでください。

### ステップ 2: バグ報告を作成する

リスト アップされていないバグを発見した場合、我々がバグを無くすることができるよう、バグ報告を作ってください。

Note: 我々が受け付ける報告は、最小化例 になっているものだけです。我々がバグ報告を扱うために使える資源は非常に限られています。そのため、最小化されていない例は受け付けられません。ほとんどのバグは 4 つ以下の音符で表すことができます！

% 臨時記号はタイの最初の音符にだけ付くはずですが、
% このバージョンでは両方の音符にフラットが付けられます。
\version "2.10.1"

\relative c'' {
bes1 ~
bes1
}


### ステップ 3: バグ報告を送る

• bug-lilypond@gnu.org メーリング リストに登録済みであれば、普通に email を送ってください。
• 登録していない場合でも、gmane lilypond.bugs web インタフェイス でバグ報告を送ることができます。

しかしながら、gmane インタフェイスには厳しい “Top-posting” 制限1 があり、しばしば誤って LilyPond ファイルに反応してしまいます。これを避けるには、以下をバグ報告の先頭に付け加えてください:

> I'm not top posting.


(> を付け忘れないでください。)

### ステップ 4: 回答を待つ

バグ報告がメーリング リストに送られると、バグ チームがその報告を検証します。彼らはバグについての更なる情報を得るために質問をする場合があります。報告がバグ トラッカーに追加された場合、通知が来ます。この仕事に割り当てられるボランティアの数は限られているため、 4 日間は待ってください。

## 援助が必要です

### We need you!

Thank you for your interest in helping us — we would love to see you get involved! Your contribution will help a large group of users make beautifully typeset music.

Even working on small tasks can have a big impact: taking care of them allows experienced developers work on advanced tasks, instead of spending time on those simple tasks.

For a multi-faceted project like LilyPond, sometimes it’s tough to know where to begin. In addition to the avenues proposed below, you can send an e-mail to the lilypond-devel@gnu.org mailing list, and we’ll help you to get started.

No programming skills required!

• Mailing list support: answer questions from fellow users.
• Bug reporting: help users create proper Bug reports, and/or join the Bug Squad to organize Issues.
• Documentation: small changes can be proposed by following the guidelines for Documentation suggestions.
• LilyPond Snippet Repository (LSR): create and fix snippets following the guidelines in Adding and editing snippets.
• Discussions, reviews, and testing: the developers often ask for feedback about new documentation, potential syntax changes, and testing new features. Please contribute to these discussions!

These jobs generally require that you have the source code and can compile LilyPond.

Note: We suggest that contributors using Windows or MacOS X do not attempt to set up their own development environment; instead, use Lilydev as discussed in Quick start.

Contributors using Linux or FreeBSD may also use Lilydev, but if they prefer their own development environment, they should read Working with source code, and Compiling.

Begin by reading Summary for experienced developers.

## スポンサー

### 報酬

• お金を支払って新しい機能を作ってもらったユーザがいました。
• お金を受け取って新しい機能を追加した開発者がいました。

LilyPond プロジェクトはそのような活動はしません。そのような契約を推奨も妨げもしません。個々の個人的な契約はそこで完結するものであり、我々は関与しません。

### ガイドライン

• LilyPond 開発者は時々、彼らが行ったサービスを lilypond email リストで宣伝することがあります。
• プライベートで個人的な合意であっても、ビジネスを行う際の通常の決め事 – 支払者、支払額、支払方法、支払条件 – を取り交わすべきです。それらの事柄について曖昧なことや不明なことは作業を開始する前に解決しておくべきです。

### 興味のある開発者

git 履歴を調べることで、活発に活動していて、経験豊富な開発者を探すことができます。バージョン 2.19.16 までの統計情報があります:

David Kastrup

## LilyPond 2.19.16 の開発

Note: 不安定な開発 バージョンです。LilyPond の使い方やインストールの仕方に少しでも疑問を持つのであれば、安定版のダウンロード を使い、安定版のマニュアル を読むことをお勧めします。

### リリース番号

LilyPond には 2 セットのリリースがあります: 安定版リリースと不安定な開発リリースです。安定バージョンは偶数の ‘マイナー’ バージョン番号 (例えば 2.8, 2.10, 2.12) を持ち、開発バージョンは奇数の ‘マイナー’ バージョン番号 (例えば 2.7, 2.9, 2.11) を持ちます。

### ダウンロード

git とコンパイルについての説明は貢献者向けガイドにあります。

ドキュメント作成者とテスターはたいてい最新のバイナリをダウンロードしようとします:

### 貢献者向けガイド

LilyPond の開発手法はかなり複雑です。新しい貢献者を助けるために、そしてシステム全体の安定を保つために、開発作業のマニュアルを作成しました。

## GSoC 2012

### Google Summer of Code とは？

LilyPond チーム GSoC を新しい貢献者を見つけ、すでに LilyPond の開発に参加している学生がより熱心に取り組む動機付けを与える絶好の機会だと捉えました。GSoC 2012 では我々の貢献者の一人が GNU プロジェクト の一部として認められました。我々は継続的にこのプログラムに参加したいと思っています。

### LilyPond チームからの 2012 年のアイディア リスト

もちろん、LilyPond には、些細な事も含めてさらに多くに改善すべき事柄があります。既知のすべての問題のリストが ここ にあります。

### 装飾小音符

メンター: Mike Solomon, Carl Sorensen

### MusicXML

• MIDI エクスポートのような基本的な音楽コンテンツ エクスポート機能(つまり、翻訳クラスから派生したエクスポート専用のクラス) を扱います。
• 基本的な音楽コンテンツの XML ツリーを構築し、音楽イベントと XML タグを結び付けます。
• すべての LilyPond エングラーバにエクスポート処理を実行させます。
• 各出力オブジェクト (基本的には各ステンシル / ステンシルのグループ) を音楽イベントにリンクさせる機能を追加します (そして、それにより、XML ツリーの XML タグにリンクさせます)。
• XML 出力のバックエンドを追加します。その後、バックエンドには各出力オブジェクトのレイアウト情報を XML タグに追加する機能を持たせます。

ゴールは、MusicXML から楽譜をインポートして、データのロス無しにエクスポートすることです。

メンター: Reinhold Kainhofer, Mike Solomon

### スラーとタイの改良

スラーとタイのデフォルトのカーブ形状はしばしば満足いかないものです。同音異名の音符間のタイ ({ cis'~ des' }) はサポートされておらず、音部記号や譜の変更によって「中断」されるタイのサポートも十分ではありません。このプロジェクトでは、不満足な出力例を収集、ソートして、どのような出力にするかを決定して実際にコードを記述します。

メンター: Mike Solomon

### フォント図柄の特殊な変体を追加する

メンター: Werner Lemberg

### 連桁の改良

メンター: Mike Solomon, Carl Sorensen

### 様々なコンパイル警告のクリーン アップ

コンパイラ、静的コード分析、それに valgrind の警告をクリーン アップしてください。自動コード分析ツール (g++clang の警告)、valgrind メモリ リーク検出、それに callgrind コード プロファイラは C++ コードの欠陥についての有用な情報を提供してくれます。これらの警告をクリーン アップすることで、警告を発生させるパッチを自動的に拒絶することが可能になります。

メンター: Joe Neeman, Reinhold Kainhofer

## 古いニュース

Note: 多くの古いアナウンスと変更履歴が 物置 で見つかります。

#### LilyPond 2.19.16 released February 28, 2015

At long last, we are very happy to announce the release of LilyPond 2.19.16. This release includes a number of enhancements, and contains some work in progress. You will have access to the very latest features, but some may be incomplete, and you may encounter bugs and crashes. If you require a stable version of Lilypond, we recommend using the 2.18 version.

We would like to acknowledge and thank Masamichi Hosoda for making this release possible with his work on updating GUB, the build tool.

#### Lilypond 2.18.2 released! March 23, 2014

We are proud to announce the release of GNU LilyPond 2.18.2. LilyPond is a music engraving program devoted to producing the highest-quality sheet music possible. It brings the aesthetics of traditionally engraved music to computer printouts.

This version provides a number of updates to 2.18.0, including updated manuals. We recommend all users to upgrade to this version.

#### LilyPond production named BEST EDITION 2014 March 11, 2014

We are thrilled to announce that the new edition of the songs of Oskar Fried (1871-1941), published recently by our fellow contributors Urs Liska and Janek Warchoł [1], will receive the "Musikeditionspreis BEST EDITION 2014" of the German Music Publishers’ Association [2]! The ceremony will take place in a few days at the Frankfurt Musikmesse [3].

We congratulate Janek and Urs for gaining such public recognition of typographical and editorial excellence of their work. We are also delighted to inform you that they intend to make their work available under a Free license as soon as the publisher expenses are covered. Please support this initiative by buying the printed volume through the publisher [4] or by pledging a contribution at the Indiegogo campaign [5]!

#### Lilypond 2.18.0 released! December 29, 2013

We are proud to announce the release of GNU LilyPond 2.18.0. LilyPond is a music engraving program devoted to producing the highest-quality sheet music possible. It brings the aesthetics of traditionally engraved music to computer printouts.

Among the numerous improvements and changes, the following might be most visible:

• Many items are now positioned using their actual outline rather than a rectangular bounding box. This greatly reduces the occurrence of unsightly large gaps.
• Sets and overrides can now use the syntax
\override Voice.TextSpanner.bound-details.left.text = "rit."


\override Voice.TextSpanner #'(bound-details left text) = "rit."

• Triplets with a given group length can now be written as
\tuplet 3/2 4 { c8 c c  c c c }


\times 2/3 { c8 c c }  \times 2/3 { c8 c c }


A full list of noteworthy new features is given in:

LilyPond 2.5.6 was released. This is a "technology preview" release, which means that it has all kinds of nifty features, but is not actually usable for producing nicely printed scores. For this reason, an RPM of this release was not produced. The PS backend is now completely switched over to Pango/FontConfig: for -f ps, LilyPond only accepts UTF8 input, all text fonts are loaded through Pango, the TeX backend now offloads all metric computations to LaTeX, the SVG and GNOME backends are broken, most probably. 古いダウンロード and check out the changes in the ChangeLog.

#### November 26, 2004

#### November 20, 2004

LilyPond 2.5.1 is out. This is an experimental release, containing some proof-of-concept code for our graphical layout editor. You can add and remove things from the file, and the tweaks will still work, as long as the tweaked notes remain in the place (ie. start at the same time-wise and be part of the same context). Further attractions are: the gnome backend now also draws beams and slurs, updates to the SVG backend, support for the lmodern font set for TeX, various bugfixes. 古いダウンロード and check out the changes in the ChangeLog.

#### September 11, 2004

LilyPond 2.3.16 was released. It fixes a couple of annoying bugs, and has an important addition in the slur-formatter. Slurs that pass note heads much closer than the average distance get an extra penalty. This fixes a lot of difficult slurring cases. See input/regression/new-slur for some examples. Please consider this release as a 3.0 pre-release so try to find as many bugs as possible. A report including a small .ly example can be filed at bug-lilypond@gnu.org In this case, a bug is defined as something that the current 2.3 does worse than the latest 2.2 release. We want to be sure that no output will get uglier by upgrading to 3.0, so that once 3.0 is out, nothing will hold users back in switching. 古いダウンロード and check out the changes in the ChangeLog.

#### September 10, 2004

LilyPond 2.3.15 was released. It fixes for some gaffes with the new vertical spacing engine, has lots of documentation updates, and has support for landscape output in the direct postscript output.

#### September 6, 2004

LilyPond 2.3.14 was released and has exciting features! LilyPond will try to keep staves at the same distances across a page, but it will stretch distances to prevent collisions; key signature cancellations are now printed before the bar line; different voices that all use "\quote" can now refer to each other. 古いダウンロード and check out the changes in the ChangeLog.

#### August 29, 2004

LilyPond now has a Documentation Editor, Graham Percival. From now on, he will oversee that useful information flows from the mailiing list into the manual.

#### August 29, 2004

Many examples have been moved to the regression test or manual, and the superfluous or outdated ones have been removed. The directory has gone from 146 examples to 72 examples. That means that we’re halfway cleaning it out. Incidentally, the manual has gone from 200 to 220 pages. New features:

• Running trills now have their own spanner and event. They are started and stopped with \startTrillSpan and \stopTrillSpan
• There is a new markup command ‘\postscript’ that takes a string that is dumped as verbatim PostScript

#### July 30, 2004

LilyPond 2.3.9 is out. The important change is that lilypond now once-again directly runs the binary. The old wrapper script has been renamed to lilypond-latex.py, and should only be used for legacy projects. The recommended route is either using lilypond directly (with \book, you can have multiple movements within one document), or to run lilypond-book with a LaTeX wrapper file. This release also fixes a bunch of small errors. I now consider LilyPond feature complete for a 3.0 release. Next on the TODO list is updating the manual, and after that’s done we can release 3.0. The projected date for this to happen is in about a month. 古いダウンロード and check out the changes in the ChangeLog.

#### July 23, 2004

#### July 19, 2004

Slurs will now also take into account collisions with staff lines, scripts (like staccato and accent) and accidentals. In the LilyPond emacs mode, the ‘|’ will now display the current beat within the measure. 古いダウンロード and check out the changes in the ChangeLog.
