18 1. This software is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,

22 2. The origin of this software must not be misrepresented, either by
23 explicit claim or by omission. In practice, this means that if you use
24 PCRE in software that you distribute to others, commercially or
25 otherwise, you must put a sentence like this

27 Regular expression support is provided by the PCRE library package,
28 which is open source software, written by Philip Hazel, and copyright
29 by the University of Cambridge, England.

31 somewhere reasonably visible in your documentation and in any relevant
32 files or online help data or similar. A reference to the ftp site for
33 the source, that is, to

37 should also be given in the documentation. However, this condition is not
38 intended to apply to whole chains of software. If package A includes PCRE,
39 it must acknowledge it, but if package B is software that includes package
40 A, the condition is not imposed on package B (unless it uses PCRE
41 independently).
42
43 3. Altered versions must be plainly marked as such, and must not be
44 misrepresented as being the original software.
45
46 4. If PCRE is embedded in any software that is released under the GNU
47 General Purpose Licence (GPL), or Lesser General Purpose Licence (LGPL),
48 then the terms of that licence shall supersede any condition above with
49 which it is incompatible.
50
51 The documentation for PCRE, supplied in the "doc" directory, is distributed
52 under the same terms as the software itself.
