1 Getting Started

"Uniform Resource Locators" (URLs) are a specific form of "Uniform
Resource Identifiers" (URI) described in RFC 2396 which updates RFC
1738 and RFC 1808.  RFC 2016 defines uniform resource agents.

   URIs have the form SCHEME:SCHEME-SPECIFIC-PART, where the SCHEMEs
supported by this library are described below.  *Note Supported URL

   FTP, NFS, HTTP, HTTPS, `rlogin', `telnet', tn3270, IRC and gopher
URLs all have the form

   where `[' and `]' delimit optional parts.  USERINFO sometimes takes
the form USERNAME:PASSWORD but you should beware of the security risks
of sending cleartext passwords.  HOSTNAME may be a domain name or a
dotted decimal address.  If the `:PORT' is omitted then the library will
use the `well known' port for that service when accessing URLs.  With
the possible exception of `telnet', it is rare for ports to be
specified, and it is possible using a non-standard port may have
undesired consequences if a different service is listening on that port
(e.g., an HTTP URL specifying the SMTP port can cause mail to be sent).
The meaning of the PATH component depends on the service.

* Menu:

* Configuration::
* Parsed URLs::                 URLs are parsed into vector structures.

File: url,  Node: Configuration,  Next: Parsed URLs,  Up: Getting Started

1.1 Configuration

 -- Variable: url-configuration-directory
     The directory in which URL configuration files, the cache etc.,
     reside.  Default `~/.url'.

File: url,  Node: Parsed URLs,  Prev: Configuration,  Up: Getting Started

1.2 Parsed URLs

The library functions typically operate on "parsed" versions of URLs.
These are actually vectors of the form:


     is the type of the URL scheme, e.g., `http'

     is the username associated with it, or `nil';

     is the user password associated with it, or `nil';

     is the host name associated with it, or `nil';

     is the port number associated with it, or `nil';

     is the `file' part of it, or `nil'.  This doesn't necessarily
     actually refer to a file;

     is the target part, or `nil';

     is the attributes associated with it, or `nil';

     is `t' for a fully-specified URL, with a host part indicated by
     `//' after the scheme part.

   These attributes have accessors named `url-PART', where PART is the
name of one of the elements above, e.g., `url-host'.  Similarly, there
are setters of the form `url-set-PART'.

   There are functions for parsing and unparsing between the string and
vector forms.

 -- Function: url-generic-parse-url url
     Return a parsed version of the string URL.

 -- Function: url-recreate-url url
     Recreates a URL string from the parsed URL.

2 Retrieving URLs

 -- Function: url-retrieve-synchronously url
     Retrieve URL synchronously and return a buffer containing the
     data.  URL is either a string or a parsed URL structure.  Return
     `nil' if there are no data associated with it (the case for dired,
     info, or mailto URLs that need no further processing).

 -- Function: url-retrieve url callback &optional cbargs
     Retrieve URL asynchronously and call CALLBACK with args CBARGS
     when finished.  The callback is called when the object has been
     completely retrieved, with the current buffer containing the
     object and any MIME headers associated with it.  URL is either a
     string or a parsed URL structure.  Returns the buffer URL will
     load into, or `nil' if the process has already completed.

3.1 `http' and `https'

The scheme `http' is Hypertext Transfer Protocol.  The library supports
version 1.1, specified in RFC 2616.  (This supersedes 1.0, defined in
RFC 1945) HTTP URLs have the following form, where most of the parts
are optional:

   The scheme `https' is a secure version of `http', with transmission
via SSL.  It is defined in RFC 2069.  Its default port is 443.  This
scheme depends on SSL support in Emacs via the `ssl.el' library and is
actually implemented by forcing the `ssl' gateway method to be used.
*Note Gateways in general::.

 -- User Option: url-honor-refresh-requests
     This controls honoring of HTTP `Refresh' headers by which servers
     can direct clients to reload documents from the same URL or a or
     different one.  `nil' means they will not be honored, `t' (the
     default) means they will always be honored, and otherwise the user
     will be asked on each request.

File: url,  Node: Cookies,  Next: HTTP language/coding,  Up: http/https

3.1.1 Cookies

 -- User Option: url-cookie-file
     The file in which cookies are stored, defaulting to `cookies' in
     the directory specified by `url-configuration-directory'.

 -- User Option: url-cookie-confirmation
     Specifies whether confirmation is require to accept cookies.

 -- User Option: url-cookie-multiple-line
     Specifies whether to put all cookies for the server on one line in
     the HTTP request to satisfy broken servers like

 -- User Option: url-cookie-trusted-urls
     A list of regular expressions matching URLs from which to accept
     cookies always.

 -- User Option: url-cookie-untrusted-urls
     A list of regular expressions matching URLs from which to reject
     cookies always.

 -- User Option: url-cookie-save-interval
     The number of seconds between automatic saves of cookies to disk.
     Default is one hour.

File: url,  Node: HTTP language/coding,  Next: HTTP URL Options,  Prev: Cookies,  Up: http/https

3.1.2 Language and Encoding Preferences

HTTP allows clients to express preferences for the language and
encoding of documents which servers may honor.  For each of these
variables, the value is a string; it can specify a single choice, or it
can be a comma-separated list.

   Normally this list ordered by descending preference.  However, each
element can be followed by `;q=PRIORITY' to specify its preference
level, a decimal number from 0 to 1; e.g., for
`url-mime-language-string', `"de, en-gb;q=0.8, en;q=0.7"'.  An element
that has no `;q' specification has preference level 1.

 -- User Option: url-mime-charset-string
     This variable specifies a preference for character sets when
     documents can be served in more than one encoding.

     HTTP allows specifying a series of MIME charsets which indicate
     your preferred character set encodings, e.g., Latin-9 or Big5, and
     these can be weighted.  The default series is generated
     automatically from the associated MIME types of all defined coding
     systems, sorted by the coding system priority specified in Emacs.
     *Note Recognizing Coding Systems: (emacs)Recognize Coding.

 -- User Option: url-mime-language-string
     A string specifying the preferred language when servers can serve
     files in several languages.  Use RFC 1766 abbreviations, e.g.,
     `en' for English, `de' for German.

     The string can be `"*"' to get the first available language (as
     opposed to the default).

3.1.3 HTTP URL Options

HTTP supports an `OPTIONS' method describing things supported by the

 -- Function: url-http-options url
     Returns a property list describing options available for URL.  The
     property list members are:

          A list of symbols specifying what HTTP methods the resource

          A list of numbers specifying what DAV protocol/schema
          versions are supported.

          A list of supported DASL search types supported (string form).

          A list of the units available for use in partial document

          The "Platform For Privacy Protection" description for the
          resource.  Currently this is just the raw header contents.

File: url,  Node: Dealing with HTTP documents,  Prev: HTTP URL Options,  Up: http/https

3.1.4 Dealing with HTTP documents

HTTP URLs are retrieved into a buffer containing the HTTP headers
followed by the body.  Since the headers are quasi-MIME, they may be
processed using the MIME library.  *Note Emacs MIME: (emacs-mime)Top.
The URL package provides a function to do this in general:

 -- Function: url-decode-text-part handle &optional coding
     This function decodes charset-encoded text in the current buffer.
     In Emacs, the buffer is expected to be unibyte initially and is
     set to multibyte after decoding.  HANDLE is the MIME handle of the
     original part.  CODING is an explicit coding to use, overriding
     what the MIME headers specify.  The coding system used for the
     decoding is returned.

     Note that this function doesn't deal with `http-equiv' charset
     specifications in HTML `<meta>' elements.

3.2 file and ftp


   These schemes are defined in RFC 1808.  `ftp:' and `file:' are
synonymous in this library.  They allow reading arbitrary files from
hosts.  Either `ange-ftp' (Emacs) or `efs' (XEmacs) is used to retrieve
them from remote hosts.  Local files are accessed directly.

   Compressed files are handled, but support is hard-coded so that
`jka-compr-compression-info-list' and so on have no affect.  Suffixes
recognized are `.z', `.gz', `.Z' and `.bz2'.

 -- User Option: url-directory-index-file
     The filename to look for when indexing a directory, default
     `"index.html"'.  If this file exists, and is readable, then it
     will be viewed instead of using `dired' to view the directory.

File: url,  Node: info,  Next: mailto,  Prev: file/ftp,  Up: Supported URL Types

3.3 info


   Info URLs are not officially defined.  They invoke `Info-goto-node'
with argument `(FILE)NODE'.  `#NODE' is optional, defaulting to `Top'.

File: url,  Node: mailto,  Next: news/nntp/snews,  Prev: info,  Up: Supported URL Types

3.4 mailto

A mailto URL will send an email message to the address in the URL, for
example `' would compose a message to `'.

 -- User Option: url-mail-command
     The function called whenever url needs to send mail.  This should
     normally be left to default from MAIL-USER-AGENT.  *Note
     Mail-Composition Methods: (emacs)Mail Methods.

   An `X-Url-From' header field containing the URL of the document that
contained the mailto URL is added if that URL is known.

   RFC 2368 extends the definition of mailto URLs in RFC 1738.  The
form of a mailto URL is
   where an arbitrary number of HEADERs can be added.  If the HEADER is
`body', then CONTENTS is put in the body otherwise a HEADER header
field is created with CONTENTS as its contents.  Note that the URL
library does not consider any headers `dangerous' so you should check
them before sending the message.

   Email messages are defined in RFC822.

File: url,  Node: news/nntp/snews,  Next: rlogin/telnet/tn3270,  Prev: mailto,  Up: Supported URL Types

3.5 `news', `nntp' and `snews'

The network news URL scheme take the following forms following RFC 1738
except that for compatibility with other clients, host and port fields
may be included in news URLs though they are properly only allowed for
nntp an snews.

     Retrieves a list of messages in NEWSGROUP;

     Retrieves the message with the given MESSAGE-ID;

     Retrieves a list of all available newsgroups;

     Similar to the `news' versions.

   `:PORT' is optional and defaults to :119.

   `snews' is the same as `nntp' except that the default port is :563.  (It
is tunneled through SSL.)

   An `nntp' URL is the same as a news URL, except that the URL may
specify an article by its number.

 -- User Option: url-news-server
     This variable can be used to override the default news server.
     Usually this will be set by the Gnus package, which is used to
     fetch news.  It may be set from the conventional environment
     variable `NNTPSERVER'.

3.6 rlogin, telnet and tn3270

These URL schemes from RFC 1738 for logon via a terminal emulator have
the form
   but the `:PASSWORD' component is ignored.

   To handle rlogin, telnet and tn3270 URLs, a `rlogin', `telnet' or
`tn3270' (the program names and arguments are hardcoded) session is run
in a `terminal-emulator' buffer.  Well-known ports are used if the URL
does not specify a port.

File: url,  Node: irc,  Next: data,  Prev: rlogin/telnet/tn3270,  Up: Supported URL Types

3.7 irc

"Internet Relay Chat" (IRC) is handled by handing off the IRC session
to a function named in `url-irc-function'.

 -- User Option: url-irc-function
     A function to actually open an IRC connection.  This function must
     take five arguments, HOST, PORT, CHANNEL, USER and PASSWORD.  The
     CHANNEL argument specifies the channel to join immediately, this
     can be `nil'.  By default this is `url-irc-rcirc'.

 -- Function: url-irc-rcirc host port channel user password
     Processes the arguments and lets `rcirc' handle the session.

 -- Function: url-irc-erc host port channel user password
     Processes the arguments and lets `ERC' handle the session.

 -- Function: url-irc-zenirc host port channel user password
     Processes the arguments and lets `zenirc' handle the session.

File: url,  Node: data,  Next: nfs,  Prev: irc,  Up: Supported URL Types

3.8 data


   Data URLs contain MIME data in the URL itself.  They are defined in
RFC 2397.

   MEDIA-TYPE is a MIME `Content-Type' string, possibly including
parameters.  It defaults to `text/plain;charset=US-ASCII'.  The
`text/plain' can be omitted but the charset parameter supplied.  If
`;base64' is present, the DATA are base64-encoded.

File: url,  Node: nfs,  Next: cid,  Prev: data,  Up: Supported URL Types

3.9 nfs


   The `nfs:' scheme is defined in RFC 2224.  It is similar to `ftp:'
except that it points to a file on a remote host that is handled by the
automounter on the local host.

 -- Variable: url-nfs-automounter-directory-spec
   A string saying how to invoke the NFS automounter.  Certain `%'
sequences are recognized:

     The hostname of the NFS server;

     The port number of the NFS server;

     The username to use to authenticate;

     The password to use to authenticate;

     The filename on the remote server;

     A literal `%'.

   Each can be used any number of times.

5.1 Disk Caching

The disk cache stores retrieved documents locally, whence they can be
retrieved more quickly.  When requesting a URL that is in the cache,
the library checks to see if the page has changed since it was last
retrieved from the remote machine.  If not, the local copy is used,
saving the transmission over the network.  Currently the cache isn't
cleared automatically.

 -- User Option: url-automatic-caching
     Setting this variable non-`nil' causes documents to be cached

 -- User Option: url-cache-directory
     This variable specifies the directory to store the cache files.
     It defaults to sub-directory `cache' of

 -- User Option: url-cache-creation-function
     The cache relies on a scheme for mapping URLs to files in the
     cache.  This variable names a function which sets the type of
     cache to use.  It takes a URL as argument and returns the absolute
     file name of the corresponding cache file.  The two supplied
     possibilities are `url-cache-create-filename-using-md5' and

 -- Function: url-cache-create-filename-using-md5 url
     Creates a cache file name from URL using MD5 hashing.  This is
     creates entries with very few cache collisions and is fast.
          (url-cache-create-filename-using-md5 "")
            => "/home/fx/.url/cache/fx/http/com/example/www/b8a35774ad20db71c7c3409a5410e74f"

 -- Function: url-cache-create-filename-human-readable url
     Creates a cache file name from URL more obviously connected to URL
     than for `url-cache-create-filename-using-md5', but more likely to
     conflict with other files.
          (url-cache-create-filename-human-readable "")
            => "/home/fx/.url/cache/fx/http/com/example/www/foo/bar"

5.2 Proxies and Gatewaying

Proxy servers are commonly used to provide gateways through firewalls
or as caches serving some more-or-less local network.  Each protocol
(HTTP, FTP, etc.) can have a different gateway server.  Proxying is
conventionally configured commonly amongst different programs through
environment variables of the form `PROTOCOL_proxy', where PROTOCOL is
one of the supported network protocols (`http', `ftp' etc.).  The
library recognizes such variables in either upper or lower case.  Their
values are of one of the forms:
   * `HOST:PORT'

   * A full URL;

   * Simply a host name.

   The `NO_PROXY' environment variable specifies URLs that should be
excluded from proxying (on servers that should be contacted directly).
This should be a comma-separated list of hostnames, domain names, or a
mixture of both.  Asterisks can be used as wildcards, but other clients
may not support that.  Domain names may be indicated by a leading dot.
For example:
   says to contact all machines in the `' and `'
domains directly, as well as the machine named `'.  If
`NO_PROXY' isn't defined, `no_PROXY' and `no_proxy' are also tried, in
that order.

   Proxies may also be specified directly in Lisp.

 -- User Option: url-proxy-services
     This variable is an alist of URL schemes and proxy servers that
     gateway them.  The items are of the form
     `(SCHEME . HOST:PORTNUMBER)', says that the URL SCHEME is
     gatewayed through PORTNUMBER on the specified HOST.  An exception
     is the pseudo scheme `"no_proxy"', which is paired with a regexp
     matching host names not to be proxied.  This variable is
     initialized from the environment as above.

          (setq url-proxy-services
                '(("http"     . "")
                  ("no_proxy" . "^.*\\(aventail\\|seanet\\)\\.com")))

5.3 Gateways in General

The library provides a general gateway layer through which all
networking passes.  It can both control access to the network and
provide access through gateways in firewalls.  This may make direct
connections in some cases and pass through some sort of gateway in
others.(1)  The library's basic function responsible for making
connections is `url-open-stream'.

 -- Function: url-open-stream name buffer host service
     Open a stream to HOST, possibly via a gateway.  The other
     arguments are as for `open-network-stream'.  This will not make a
     connection if `url-gateway-unplugged' is non-`nil'.

 -- Variable: url-gateway-local-host-regexp
     This is a regular expression that matches local hosts that do not
     require the use of a gateway.  If `nil', all connections are made
     through the gateway.

 -- Variable: url-gateway-method
     This variable controls which gateway method is used.  It may be
     useful to bind it temporarily in some applications.  It has values
     taken from a list of symbols.  Possible values are:

          Use this method if you must first telnet and log into a
          gateway host, and then run telnet from that host to connect
          to outside machines.

          This method is identical to `telnet', but uses `rlogin' to
          log into the remote machine without having to send the
          username and password over the wire every time.

          Use if the firewall has a SOCKS gateway running on it.  The
          SOCKS v5 protocol is defined in RFC 1928.

          This method uses Emacs's builtin networking directly.  This
          is the default.  It can be used only if there is no firewall
          blocking access.

   The following variables control the gateway methods.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-telnet-host
     The gateway host to telnet to.  Once logged in there, you then
     telnet out to the hosts you want to connect to.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-telnet-parameters
     This should be a list of parameters to pass to the `telnet'

 -- User Option: url-gateway-telnet-password-prompt
     This is a regular expression that matches the password prompt when
     logging in.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-telnet-login-prompt
     This is a regular expression that matches the username prompt when
     logging in.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-telnet-user-name
     The username to log in with.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-telnet-password
     The password to send when logging in.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-prompt-pattern
     This is a regular expression that matches the shell prompt.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-rlogin-host
     Host to `rlogin' to before telnetting out.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-rlogin-parameters
     Parameters to pass to `rsh'.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-rlogin-user-name
     User name to use when logging in to the gateway.

 -- User Option: url-gateway-prompt-pattern
     This is a regular expression that matches the shell prompt.

 -- User Option: socks-server
     This specifies the default server, it takes the form
     `("Default server" SERVER PORT VERSION)' where VERSION can be
     either 4 or 5.

 -- Variable: socks-password
     If this is `nil' then you will be asked for the password,
     otherwise it will be used as the password for authenticating you to
     the SOCKS server.

 -- Variable: socks-username
     This is the username to use when authenticating yourself to the
     SOCKS server.  By default this is your login name.

 -- Variable: socks-timeout
     This controls how long, in seconds, to wait for responses from the
     SOCKS server; it is 5 by default.

 -- User Option: socks-nslookup-program
     This the `nslookup' program.  It is `"nslookup"' by default.

5.3.1 Suppressing Network Connections

In some circumstances it is desirable to suppress making network
connections.  A typical case is when rendering HTML in a mail user
agent, when external URLs should not be activated, particularly to
avoid `bugs' which `call home' by fetch single-pixel images and the
like.  To arrange this, bind the following variable for the duration of
such processing.

 -- Variable: url-gateway-unplugged
     If this variable is non-`nil' new network connections are never
     opened by the URL library.

File: url,  Node: History,  Prev: Gateways in general,  Up: General Facilities

5.4 History

The library can maintain a global history list tracking URLs accessed.
URL completion can be done from it.  The history mechanism is set up
automatically via `url-do-setup' when it is configured to be on.  Note
that the size of the history list is currently not limited.

   The history `list' is actually a hash table,
`url-history-hash-table'.  It contains access times keyed by URL
strings.  The times are in the format returned by `current-time'.

 -- Function: url-history-update-url url time
     This function updates the history table with an entry for URL
     accessed at the given TIME.

 -- User Option: url-history-track
     If non-`nil', the library will keep track of all the URLs
     accessed.  If it is `t', the list is saved to disk at the end of
     each Emacs session.  The default is `nil'.

 -- User Option: url-history-file
     The file storing the history list between sessions.  It defaults to
     `history' in `url-configuration-directory'.

 -- User Option: url-history-save-interval
     The number of seconds between automatic saves of the history list.
     Default is one hour.  Note that if you change this variable
     directly, rather than using Custom, after `url-do-setup' has been
     run, you need to run the function `url-history-setup-save-timer'.

 -- Function: url-history-parse-history &optional fname
     Parses the history file FNAME (default `url-history-file') and
     sets up the history list.

 -- Function: url-history-save-history &optional fname
     Saves the current history to file FNAME (default

 -- Function: url-completion-function string predicate function
     You can use this function to do completion of URLs from the

Appendix A GNU Free Documentation License

                     Version 1.3, 3 November 2008

     Copyright (C) 2000, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2008, 2009 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

     Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
     of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.


     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.


     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.


     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.


     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.


     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

       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

       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.


     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."


     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.


     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.


     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

     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.


     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.


     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

     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.


     "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

     "CC-BY-SA" means the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0
     license published by Creative Commons Corporation, a not-for-profit
     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
