A licence to use such code for any other purpose must be obtained from its owners. Except as specifically authorised you may not make copies of the Software, other than for archival or backup purposes. You may not, unless otherwise provided by applicable law, modify, decompile, or reverse engineer the Software. The Author disclaims any express or implied warranty of fitness for use or purpose.
