       AGREEMENT </h1>



<div class="notice">
<h2>Notice</h2>
<p>
This
Agreement is a Free Software
license agreement that is the result of 
discussions between its authors in order to ensure compliance with
the two main principles guiding its drafting:</p>



<ul>
<li> firstly,
compliance with the principles governing the distribution of Free Software:
access to source code, broad rights granted to users,
</li>
<li>
secondly, the election of a governing law, French law, with which it is
conformant, both as regards the law of torts and
intellectual property law, and the protection that it offers to
both authors and holders of the economic rights over software. 
</li>
</ul>


<p>The
 authors of the 

CeCILL<SUP><A HREF="#footnote1">1</A></SUP>
license are:</p> 

<p>Commissariat
� l'Energie Atomique - CEA, a public
scientific, technical and industrial establishment, having its
principal place of business at 31-33 rue de la F�d�ration,
75752  Paris
cedex 15, France.</p>

<p>Centre
National de la Recherche Scientifique - CNRS,
a public scientific and technological establishment, having its
principal place of business at
3 rue Michel-Ange 75794 Paris cedex 16, France.</p> 

<p>Institut

</div>
<div class="preamble">
<h2>Preamble</h2>

<p>The
purpose of this Free Software 
license
agreement 
is to grant users
the right to modify and redistribute the software governed by this
license within the framework of an open source
distribution model.  
</p>

<p>The
exercising of these rights is conditional upon certain obligations
for users so as to  preserve this status 
 for all subsequent
redistributions. </p>

<p>In consideration of access to
the source code and the rights to copy,
modify and redistribute granted by the license, users are provided only
with a limited warranty and the
software's author, the holder of the economic rights, and the
successive licensors only have limited liability.
</p>

<p>In
this respect, 

the risks
associated with loading, using, modifying and/or developing or
reproducing the software by the user 
are brought to the user's attention,
given its  Free Software 
status, 
which may  make it
 complicated to use, 

with the result that its use is 
reserved for developers and experienced professionals having in-depth 
computer knowledge. 
Users are therefore encouraged to load and test the Software's suitability as
regards their requirements in conditions enabling the security of their
systems and/or data to be ensured and, more generally, to use and operate it
in the same conditions of security. This Agreement may be freely reproduced
and published, provided it is not altered, and that no 
provisions are either added or removed
herefrom.</p> 

<p>This
Agreement may apply to any or all software for which the holder of
the economic rights decides to submit the use
thereof to its provisions.</p>
