22     2. The origin of this software must not be misrepresented, either by
23 nigel 49 explicit claim or by omission. In practice, this means that if you use
24 nigel 63 PCRE in software that you distribute to others, commercially or
25 nigel 49 otherwise, you must put a sentence like this
26 nigel 29
27 nigel 47 Regular expression support is provided by the PCRE library package,
28 nigel 49 which is open source software, written by Philip Hazel, and copyright
29     by the University of Cambridge, England.

32 nigel 49 files or online help data or similar. A reference to the ftp site for

37 nigel 63 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).

44     misrepresented as being the original software.
45    
46     4. If PCRE is embedded in any software that is released under the GNU
47 nigel 53 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.

51 nigel 53 The documentation for PCRE, supplied in the "doc" directory, is distributed
52     under the same terms as the software itself.
