NOTE: Do not fold or crease envelopes.
4. Hold both sides of the print media close to the multipurpose feeder, and load it into the printer.
NOTICE: Do not force the print media into the feeder. Forcing the media causes jams.
Insert envelopes with the flap side facing down and with the stamp area as shown.
NOTE: For best performance do not use envelopes that have postage stamps attached.
Hold transparencies by the edges, and avoid touching the print side. Oil from your fingers that is
deposited on the transparency can affect print quality.
Load letterhead facing up, with the top of the sheet entering the printer first.
If you experience problems with paper feed, turn the paper around.
Linking and Unlinking Trays
Linking trays
Tray linking is useful for large print jobs or multiple copies. When one linked tray is empty, paper feeds from
the next linked tray. When the Paper Size and Paper Type settings are the same for any trays, the trays are
automatically linked. The Paper Size setting for the multipurpose feeder must be set manually from the
Paper Size menu. The Paper Type setting must be set for all trays from the Paper Type menu. The Paper
Type menu and the Paper Size menu are both available from the Paper Size/Type menu.
Unlinking trays
Unlinked trays have settings that are not the same as the settings of any other tray.
To unlink a tray, change the following tray settings so that they do not match the settings of any other tray:
Paper Type (for example: Plain Paper, Letterhead, Custom Type <x>)
Paper Type names describe the paper characteristics. If the name that best describes your paper is
used by linked trays, assign a different Paper Type name to the tray, such as Custom Type <x>, or
define your own custom name.
Paper Size (for example: letter, A4, statement)
Load a different paper size to change the Paper Size setting for a tray. Paper Size settings for a tray
and the multipurpose feeder must be set manually from the Paper Size menu.
NOTICE: Do not assign a Paper Type name that does not accurately describe the type of paper loaded
in the tray. The temperature of the fuser varies according to the specified Paper Type. Paper may not
be properly processed if an inaccurate Paper Type is selected.

Printer network ports-Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista,
Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000
For basic printer functionality, install printer software, and use a system network printer port, such as a Line
Printer Remote (LPR) or a standard TCP/IP port. The printer software and port let you maintain a consistent
user interface for use with all the printers on the network. Using a custom network port provides enhanced
functionality, such as printer status alerts.
Network Printing Options
In Windows environments, network printers can be configured for direct printing or shared printing. Both
network printing options require the installation of printer software and the creation of a network port.
IP Printing
Shared Printing
Printer is connected directly to the network
using a network cable, such as an Ethernet
cable.
Printer software is typically installed on
each network computer.
Printer is connected to one of the computers on
the network using a local cable, such as a USB or
parallel cable.
Printer software is installed on the computer
attached to the printer.
During software installation, the printer is set up
to be “shared” so that other network computers
can print to it.
Direct Attachment With a Network Cable (Using a Print
Server)
A print server is any designated computer that centrally manages all client print jobs. If you are sharing your
printer in a small workgroup environment and want to control all print jobs on this network, connect the
printer to a print server.
NOTE: Print a printer settings page to get the IP address and MAC address of the printer network
adapter before setting up the network printer. For more information, see Printing a Network Setup

Shared Printing
You can use Microsoft's Point and Print or Peer-to-Peer methods to share a printer on the network with a USB
or parallel cable connection. To use one of these methods, you must first share the printer and then install
the shared printer on client computers.
However, if you use one of these Microsoft methods, you will not have all the Dell features, such as the
Status Monitor, that are installed using the Software and Documentation CD.
NOTE: Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP Professional require that you have administrative
access to share a printer.

To check that the printer was successfully shared:
Ensure that the printer object in the Printers folder shows it is shared. For example, in Windows 2000,
a hand is shown underneath the printer icon.
Browse My Network Places or Network Neighborhood. Find the host name of the server, and look
for the shared name you assigned to the printer.
Now that the printer is shared, you can install the printer on network clients using the Point and Print
method or the Peer-to-Peer method.
Install the Shared Printer on Client Computers
Point and Print
This method is the best use of system resources. The printer server handles driver modifications and print
job processing. This lets network clients return to their programs much faster.
If you use the Point and Print method, a subset of software information is copied from the print server to the
client computer. This is just enough information to send a print job to the printer.
1. On the Windows desktop of the client computer, double-click My Network Places or Network
Neighborhood.
2. Double-click the host name of the print server computer.
3. Right-click the shared printer name, and then click Install or Connect.
Wait for the software information to copy from the print server computer to the client computer, and
for a new printer object to be added to the Printers folder. The time this takes varies, based on
network traffic and other factors.
4. Close My Network Places or Network Neighborhood.

a fairly large booklet, you might want to use the Sheets per Bundle option to specify how many physical
pages are put into one bundle. The printer prints the necessary number of bundles, which you can then bind
into one booklet. Printing in bundles helps the outside edge of the pages line up more evenly.

Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the floor.
If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton, ensure that they rest on a flat
surface so the edges do not buckle or curl.
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.
Storing the Toner Cartridge
Store the toner cartridge in the original packaging until you are ready to install it.
Do not store the toner in:
Temperatures greater than 40°C (104°F).
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
Direct sunlight.
Dusty places.
A car for a long period of time.
An environment where corrosive gases are present.
An environment with salty air.
Replacing Supplies
Replacing the Imaging Drum
You can determine approximately how full the imaging drum is by printing the printer settings configuration
sheet. This helps you decide when you might need to order replacement supplies.
To ensure print quality and to avoid damage to the printer, the printer stops operating after the imaging
drum has reached a maximum of 30,000 pages. The printer automatically notifies you before the imaging
drum reaches this point.
While the printer may continue to function properly after the imaging drum has reached its official end-oflife, print quality significantly decreases until the imaging drum stops operating at the maximum of 30,000
pages.
NOTICE: When replacing the imaging drum, do not leave it exposed to direct light for an extended
period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Open the front cover by pressing the door release button on the right side of the printer and lowering
the cover.

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
You can determine approximately how much toner is left in your cartridge by printing the printer settings
configuration sheet. This helps you decide when you might need to order replacement supplies.
When the Toner low message appears, or when you experience faded print, remove the toner cartridge.
Firmly shake it side-to-side and front-to-back several times to redistribute the toner, and then reinsert it and
continue printing. Repeat this procedure multiple times until print remains faded. When the print remains
faded, replace the toner cartridge.
NOTE: You can still print for a short time after the Toner low message appears, but print quality
decreases as the toner level decreases.
NOTICE: When replacing a toner cartridge, do not leave the new cartridge exposed to direct light for
an extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Open the front cover by pressing the button on the right side of the printer and lowering the cover.
3. Press the button on the base of the imaging drum and pull the toner cartridge assembly up and out
using the handle.

General Guidelines for Selecting or Loading Print Media
Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause paper jams and poor print
quality.
Use only high-quality, copier-grade paper for the best print quality.
Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too smooth or rough. Paper
jams may occur.
Store paper in its packaging until you are ready to use it. Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not on
the floor.
Do not place heavy objects on top of the media, whether or not it is packaged.
Keep paper away from moisture or other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.
Store unused paper at temperatures ranging between 15°C and 30°C (59°F and 86°F). The relative
humidity should be between 10% and 70%.
During storage, you should use moisture-proof wrap, such as a plastic container or bag, to prevent
dust and moisture from contaminating the paper.
Avoiding Jams and Misfeeds
You can avoid most jams and misfeeds by following these guidelines:
Use paper that follows the printer's media guidelines. For more information, see Loading Paper.
Make sure that the paper is properly loaded in the input tray.
Do not overload the input tray.
Do not remove paper from the input tray while printing.
Flex, fan, and straighten the paper before loading.
Do not use creased, damp, or curled paper.
Orient the paper according to the instructions for the printer.
Clearing Paper Jams
It is recommended that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury when clearing paper jams allow the surface to cool
before touching.
Paper jam in the paper path
1. Pull the paper firmly to remove it. If you cannot reach the paper because it is too far into the printer,
open the front cover of the printer by pressing the button on the right side of the printer and lowering
the cover.
2. Pull the toner cartridge assembly out of the printer by pulling on the toner cartridge handle.
NOTE: Do not press the button on the toner cartridge assembly.
CAUTION: The inside of the printer might be hot. To reduce the risk of injury from a hot
component, allow the surface to cool before touching it.
3. Pull the paper out.
4. Install the toner cartridge assembly into the printer.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): Mac OS® Features,
Issues, and Solutions
This document provides answers to common questions regarding printing, the printer software, and how the
software interacts with the Macintosh Operating System (OS). Keeping your printer software and computer
system up-to-date minimizes printing issues and ensures the best results from your printer and Mac OS. To
keep your printer software current, visit the Web site of your printer manufacturer, and download the most
recent Web package. To keep your Mac OS current, periodically check for updates at
http://www.info.apple.com/support/downloads.html.
Mac OS X Features
Why do some applications not print multiple copies as expected?
Some applications handle the printing of multiple copies differently. Some versions of Microsoft Word
and Adobe Reader treat multiple copies of a job as a single copy job with multiple pages. The following
features will not work as expected when printing multiple copies using these applications.
Feature
Malfunction
Separator Sheets Between Copies
A sheet may be added only after the entire job is printed.
Duplex/Print on Both Sides
Copies may print on the same sheet.
Multiple Pages per Sheet
Copies may print on the same sheet.
Verify Print
All copies may be verified before they are printed.
To print multiple copies of a PDF file with these features, use Apple Preview or Adobe Acrobat Reader
5.
How do I manage network printers?
Use MarkVision™ Professional to manage your network printers. This application replaces MarkVision
for Macintosh and is compatible with Mac OS X or higher.
Mac OS X Known Issues and Solutions
How do I format my document to print on custom paper sizes?
Use the Page Setup dialog to add a custom paper size to the Paper Size menu.
For Mac OS X version 10.4:
1. Choose File
Page Setup.
2. From the Paper Size pop-up menu, choose Manage Custom Sizes.
3. From the Custom Page Sizes pane, click + to create a new custom paper size.
4. On the list that appears, double-click Untitled to rename the custom paper size.
5. Enter the appropriate page size and margins of the custom paper size.
6. Click OK to return to the Page Setup dialog.
7. From the Paper Size pop-up menu, choose the custom paper size you created.
8. Click OK.
For Mac OS X version 10.3:
1. Choose File
2.
Page Setup.
1.
2. From the Settings pop-up menu, choose Custom Paper Size.
3. Click New, and then enter the appropriate information about the custom paper size.
4. Click Save.
NOTE: You must click Save before clicking OK or switching back to the Page Attributes
pane in the Settings pop-up menu.
5. From the Settings pop-up menu, choose Page Attributes.
6. From the Paper Size pop-up menu, choose the custom paper size.
This newly added custom paper size is an available option for all print jobs, regardless of the selection
in the “Format for” menu. Another way to use custom paper for print jobs is to choose the source that
contains the custom paper in the “All pages from” pop-up menu on the Paper Feed pane of the Print
dialog.
Why are screen fonts provided?
PostScript fonts are stored in the printer. Matching screen fonts let you create documents that use the
PostScript fonts.
Why are there duplicates of some of the screen fonts?
The fonts in your printer are not identical to the screen fonts provided by Apple. Dell provides screen
fonts that match the printer fonts. Using these screen fonts allows you to make sure that the printed
output will match what you see on the computer screen.
How do I install screen fonts?
Move the fonts you want to use from the /Users/Shared/Dell/Screen Fonts folder to the Library/Fonts
folder in your home directory or at the root of the boot disk. Because most of the preinstalled fonts on
Mac OS X are in /System/Library/Fonts, you can place your new fonts in either of these two locations
without having to move the preexisting ones. The system will find fonts first in your home Library, then
in the Library at the root of the boot disk, and then in /System/Library.
How do I use an external print server when the data mode is TBCP (for printers that support
external print servers)?
Check the Data Mode setting:
1.
1. Enter the IP address of the print server into your Web browser.
2. From the menus at the left of the Web page, choose Configuration.
3. From the list of configuration options on the right, choose AppleTalk.
4. From the AppleTalk page, choose Advanced Settings.
5. From the AppleTalk Advanced Settings page, view the Data Mode pop-up menu. If the menu is
set to IOP/EOP, do not change it. If it is set to TBCP, change it to Raw Mode.
Calling for Service
Before calling for service, check the following:
Is the power cable plugged into the printer?
Is the power cable plugged directly into a properly grounded electrical outlet?
Is your printer properly connected to your computer or network?
Are all other devices attached to your printer plugged in and turned on?
Is the electrical outlet turned off by any switches?
Did a fuse blow?
Has a power outage occurred in your area?
Is a toner cartridge installed in your printer?
Is the printer cover closed properly?
Try turning your printer off and back on again. If your printer is still not operating properly, call for service.
If you are able to print, press the Menu button
to print a menu settings page, which lists the printer
model type and other information the service representative may need to know.

MIB Compatibility
A Management Information Base (MIB) is a database containing information about network devices (such as
adapters, bridges, routers, or computers). This information helps network administrators manage the
network (analyze performance, traffic, errors, and so on). This printer complies with standard industry MIB
specifications, allowing the printer to be recognized and managed by various printer and network
management software systems, such as Dell OpenManage™, IT Assistant, Hewlett-Packard OpenView, CA
Unicenter, Hewlett-Packard Web JetAdmin, Lexmark MarkVision Professional, and so on.
Print Media Guidelines
Selecting the right paper or other media reduces printing problems. For best print quality, try a sample of
the paper or specialty media you are considering before buying large quantities.
CAUTION: Your product uses a printing process that heats the print media, and heat can
cause certain media to release emissions. You must understand the section in your operating
instructions that discusses the guidelines for selecting appropriate print media to avoid the
possibility of harmful emissions.
Use 20 lb (70 g/m2) xerographic paper.
Use transparencies designed for laser printers.
Use paper labels designed for laser printers.
Use envelopes made from 24 lb (90 g/m 2) bond paper. To reduce paper jams, do not use envelopes
that:
Have excessive curl.
Are stuck together.
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or embossing.
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
Have postage stamps attached.
Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed position.
Use card stock with a maximum weight of 163 g/m2 and a minimum size of 3x5 in. (76.2x127 mm).

Version 2, June 1991

59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not
allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast,
the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to
make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free
Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other
Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) 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 this
service 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 make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask
you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute
copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the
recipients all the rights that you have. 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.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives
you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is
no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its
recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not
reflect on the original authors' reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that
redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program
proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use
or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder
saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to
any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative
work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or
with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without
limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying,
distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running
the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a
work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is
true depends on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute 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 and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of
any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty
protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the
Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided
that you also meet all of these conditions:
a. You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the
date of any change.
b. You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived
from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the
terms of this License.
c. If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when
started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement
including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you
provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user
how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print
such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not
derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as
separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the
Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other
licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you;
rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on
the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work
based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or
executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a. Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed
under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b. Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no
more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the
corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
customarily used for software interchange; or,
c. Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code.
(This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in
object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an
executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the
executable. However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is
normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so
on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the
executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then
offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source
code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this
License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will
automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights,
from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full
compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants
you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by
law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based
on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for
copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically
receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms
and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted
herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not
limited to patent issues), 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 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other
pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a
patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies
directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance
of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to
contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free
software distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on
consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute
software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this
License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by
copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an
explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in
or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in
the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the 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 a version number of this
License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does
not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free
Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions
are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our
decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software
and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, 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.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY
COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE 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.
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
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 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the "copyright"
line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
1 April 1989
Lexmark International, Inc.
This 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 Library General Public License instead of this
License.
GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2.1, February 1999
Copyright (C) 1991, 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not
allowed.
[This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also counts as the successor of the GNU Library Public
License, version 2, hence the version number 2.1.]
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast,
the GNU General Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software-to make sure the software is free for all its users.
This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some specially designated software packages-typically libraries--of the Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to use it. You can use it
too, but we suggest you first think carefully about whether this license or the ordinary General Public License
is the better strategy to use in any particular case, based on the explanations below.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use, 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
this service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get it if you want it; that you can change the
software and use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you are informed that you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid distributors to deny you these rights or to
ask you to surrender these rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients
all the rights that we gave you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. If
you link other code with the library, you must provide complete object files to the recipients, so that they
can relink them with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling it. And you must show
them these terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the library, and (2) we offer you this
license, which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that there is no warranty for the free library. Also,
if the library is modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know that what they have is
not the original version, so that the original author's reputation will not be affected by problems that might
be introduced by others.
Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of any free program. We wish to make sure
that a company cannot effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a restrictive license from
a patent holder. Therefore, we insist that any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be
consistent with the full freedom of use specified in this license.
Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the ordinary GNU General Public License. This
license, the GNU Lesser General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and is quite different
from the ordinary General Public License. We use this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking
those libraries into non-free programs.
When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using a shared library, the combination of the
two is legally speaking a combined work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary General Public
License therefore permits such linking only if the entire combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser
General Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with the library.
We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it does Less to protect the user's freedom
than the ordinary General Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less of an
advantage over competing non-free programs. These disadvantages are the reason we use the ordinary
General Public License for many libraries. However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain special
circumstances.
For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to encourage the widest possible use of a
certain library, so that it becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must be allowed
to use the library. A more frequent case is that a free library does the same job as widely used non-free
libraries. In this case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free software only, so we use the
Lesser General Public License.
In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free programs enables a greater number of
people to use a large body of free software. For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in non-free
programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU operating system, as well as its variant, the
GNU/Linux operating system.
Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the users' freedom, it does ensure that the
user of a program that is linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run that program
using a modified version of the Library.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. Pay close attention to the
difference between a "work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library". The former contains
code derived from the library, whereas the latter must be combined with the library in order to run.
GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other program which contains a notice placed by
the copyright holder or other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of this Lesser
General Public License (also called "this License"). Each licensee is addressed as "you".
A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data prepared so as to be conveniently linked with
application programs (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work which has been distributed under these
terms. A "work based on the Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under copyright law:
that is to say, a work containing the Library or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or
translated straightforwardly into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
the term "modification".)
"Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For a library,
complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface
definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the library.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside
its scope. The act of running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from such a program
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Library (independent of the use of the Library
in a tool for writing it). Whether that is true depends on what the Library does and what the program that
uses the Library does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's complete source code as you receive it, in
any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the
absence of any warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the Library.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty
protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the
Library, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided
that you also meet all of these conditions:
a. The modified work must itself be a software library.
b. You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the
date of any change.
c. You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no charge to all third parties under the terms of
this License.
d. If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a table of data to be supplied by an application
program that uses the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility is invoked, then you must
make a good faith effort to ensure that, in the event an application does not supply such function or table,
the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of its purpose remains meaningful.
(For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has a purpose that is entirely well-defined
independent of the application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any application-supplied function or
table used by this function must be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square root function
must still compute square roots.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not
derived from the Library, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves,
then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works.
But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Library, the
distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend
to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you;
rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on
the Library.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library with the Library (or with a work
based on the Library) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
the scope of this License.
3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public License instead of this License to a
given copy of the Library. To do this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so that they
refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2, instead of to this License. (If a newer version
than version 2 of the ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify that version
instead if you wish.) Do not make any other change in these notices.
Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public
License applies to all subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of the Library into a program that is not a
library.
4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or
executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany it with the
complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange.
If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering
equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to distribute the
source code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the Library, but is designed to work with the
Library by being compiled or linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library". Such a work, in isolation,
is not a derivative work of the Library, and therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library creates an executable that is a derivative of
the Library (because it contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the library". The
executable is therefore covered by this License. Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file that is part of the Library, the object
code for the work may be a derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not. Whether this
is true is especially significant if the work can be linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library.
The threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data structure layouts and accessors, and small
macros and small inline functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object file is unrestricted,
regardless of whether it is legally a derivative work. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of
the Library will still fall under Section 6.)
Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may distribute the object code for the work under
the terms of Section 6. Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6, whether or not they
are linked directly with the Library itself.
6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or link a "work that uses the Library" with
the Library to produce a work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work under terms of
your choice, provided that the terms permit modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse
engineering for debugging such modifications.
You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the Library is used in it and that the Library
and its use are covered by this License. You must supply a copy of this License. If the work during execution
displays copyright notices, you must include the copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a
reference directing the user to the copy of this License. Also, you must do one of these things:
a. Accompany the work with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code for the Library
including whatever changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under Sections 1 and 2
above); and, if the work is an executable linked with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work
that uses the Library", as object code and/or source code, so that the user can modify the Library and then
relink to produce a modified executable containing the modified Library. (It is understood that the user who
changes the contents of definitions files in the Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the
application to use the modified definitions.)
b. Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1)
uses at run time a copy of the library already present on the user's computer system, rather than copying
library functions into the executable, and (2) will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if
the user installs one, as long as the modified version is interface-compatible with the version that the work
was made with.
c. Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give the same user the
materials specified in Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more than the cost of performing this
distribution.
d. If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, offer equivalent
access to copy the above specified materials from the same place.
e. Verify that the user has already received a copy of these materials or that you have already sent this user
a copy.
For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the Library" must include any data and utility
programs needed for reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special exception, the materials to
be distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with
the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs,
unless that component itself accompanies the executable.
It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do
not normally accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you cannot use both them and
the Library together in an executable that you distribute.
7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the Library side-by-side in a single library
together with other library facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined library,
provided that the separate distribution of the work based on the Library and of the other library facilities is
otherwise permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
a. Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work based on the Library, uncombined with any
other library facilities. This must be distributed under the terms of the Sections above.
b. Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact that part of it is a work based on the Library,
and explaining where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute the Library except as expressly provided
under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute the Library is
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received
copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties
remain in full compliance.
9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants
you permission to modify or distribute the Library or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by
law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based
on the Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for
copying, distributing or modifying the Library or works based on it.
10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the Library), the recipient automatically
receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library subject to
these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the
rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason
(not limited to patent issues), 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 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any
other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Library at all. For example, if
a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by all those who receive copies
directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance
of the section is intended to apply, and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to
contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free
software distribution system which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on
consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute
software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this
License.
12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by
copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add an
explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in
or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in
the body of this License.
13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the Lesser General Public
License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in
detail to address new problems or concerns. Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
Library specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the
option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by the
Free Software Foundation. If the Library does not specify a license version number, you may choose any
version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free programs whose distribution conditions are
incompatible with these, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the
Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this.
Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free
software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
NO WARRANTY
15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO
THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE
COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "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 LIBRARY IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY
COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY 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 LIBRARY (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 LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF
SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
How to Apply These Terms to Your New Libraries
If you develop a new library, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, we recommend
making it free software that everyone can redistribute and change. You can do so by permitting
redistribution under these terms (or, alternatively, under the terms of the ordinary General Public License).
To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library. It is safest to attach them to the start of
each source file to most effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the
"copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
