The Artistic License


The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a Package 
may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some semblance of 
artistic control over the development of the package, while giving the users of 
the package the right to use and distribute the Package in a more-or-less 
customary fashion, plus the right to make reasonable modifications.


  * "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the Copyright 
    Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files created through textual 
  * "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been modified, 
    or has been modified in accordance with the wishes of the Copyright Holder. 
  * "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or copyrights for 
    the package. 
  * "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing this 
  * "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the basis of media 
    cost, duplication charges, time of people involved, and so on. (You will not 
    be required to justify it to the Copyright Holder, but only to the computing 
    community at large as a market that must bear the fee.) 
  * "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item itself, 
    though there may be fees involved in handling the item. It also means that 
    recipients of the item may redistribute it under the same conditions they 
    received it.

1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the 
   Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you 
   duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.

2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications derived 
   from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder. A Package modified in such 
   a way shall still be considered the Standard Version.

3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided 
   that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and when you 
   changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the following:

  a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them 
     Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or an 
     equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major archive site such 
     as, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include your 
     modifications in the Standard Version of the Package.
  b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or 
  c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict with 
     standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide a separate 
     manual page for each non-standard executable that clearly documents how it 
     differs from the Standard Version.

  d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.

4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or 
   executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:

  a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files, 
     together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where to get 
     the Standard Version.
  b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of the 
     Package with your modifications.
  c) accompany any non-standard executables with their corresponding Standard 
     Version executables, giving the non-standard executables non-standard names, 
     and clearly documenting the differences in manual pages (or equivalent), 
     together with instructions on where to get the Standard Version.
  d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this 
   Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this Package. You may 
   not charge a fee for this Package itself. However, you may distribute this 
   Package in aggregate with other (possibly commercial) programs as part of a 
   larger (possibly commercial) software distribution provided that you do not 
   advertise this Package as a product of your own.

6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as output 
   from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall under the copyright 
   of this Package, but belong to whomever generated them, and may be sold 
   commercially, and may be aggregated with this Package.

7. C or perl subroutines supplied by you and linked into this Package shall 
   not be considered part of this Package.

8. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote 
   products derived from this software without specific prior written

About the Author

Paolo Messina
Technical Lead RoboTech srl
Italy Italy
Paolo began programming at the age of 9 with a glorious Olivetti M24 (i8086) and GW-BASIC, then he played a bit with Turbo C, Turbo Pascal and Assembly (using the MS-DOS Debug). Quick BASIC and Visual Basic shortly followed, until he learned C++ in College. He tought himself MFC and Windows programming, along with some DHTML and Javascript.

Always attracted by low-level programming and Assembly, he started to appreciate the joys of templates and STL while working for his Master Thesis. For seven months he was playing with airplanes and automatic control at the Unversity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he first met QNX and embedded systems.

In his job experience he learned Java to develop user interfaces and graphical editors, and re-discovered the Eclipse IDE that he had used in its early versions with the QNX SDK. He also deepened his knowledge of Linux and embedded systems, microcontrollers firmware and embedded voice recognition, while also practicing electronics design.

He graduated in Computer Engineering (Ingegneria informatica) at the University of Pisa, Italy, in December 2003. Currently working for an edutainment robotics company (

He lives in Peccioli (Pisa) and Follonica (GR), Italy.
