       fltk - the fast light tool kit


       The  Fast  Light  Tool  Kit  ("FLTK",  pronounced  "fulltick") is a C++
       graphical user interface toolkit for the X Window System, MacOS(r), and
       Microsoft  Windows(r)  that  supports  OpenGL(r).   It  was  originally
       developed by Mr. Bill Spitzak and is currently maintained  by  a  small
       group  of  developers across the world with a central repository in the

       FLTK is provides under the terms of  the  GNU  Library  General  Public
       License, with the following exceptions:

              1.  Modifications  to  the  FLTK configure script, config header
              file, and makefiles by themselves to support a specific platform
              do not constitute a modified or derivative work.

              The authors do request that such modifications be contributed to
              the   FLTK    project    -    send    all    contributions    to

              2.  Widgets  that  are  subclassed  from  FLTK  widgets  do  not
              constitute a derivative work.

              3. Static linking  of  applications  and  widgets  to  the  FLTK
              library  does  not  constitute  a  derivative  work and does not
              require the author to provide source code for the application or
              widget,   use   the   shared   FLTK  libraries,  or  link  their
              applications or widgets against a user-supplied version of FLTK.

              If  you  link the application or widget to a modified version of
              FLTK, then the changes to FLTK must be provided under the  terms
              of the LGPL in sections 1, 2, and 4.

              4.  You  do  not have to provide a copy of the FLTK license with
              programs that are linked to the FLTK library, nor do you have to
              identify  the  FLTK  license in your program or documentation as
              required by section 6 of the LGPL.

              However, programs must still identify their  use  of  FLTK.  The
              following   example   statement   can   be   included   in  user
              documentation to satisfy this requirement:

              [program/widget] is based in  part  on  the  work  of  the  FLTK
              project (
