|Portions of this software are derived from third-party works licensed
|under terms compatible with the above MIT license:
|The TRE regular expression implementation (src/regex/reg* and
|src/regex/tre*) is Copyright © 2001-2008 Ville Laurikari and licensed
|under a 2-clause BSD license (license text in the source files). The
|included version has been heavily modified by Rich Felker in 2012, in
|the interests of size, simplicity, and namespace cleanliness.
|Much of the math library code (src/math/* and src/complex/*) is
|Copyright © 1993,2004 Sun Microsystems or
|Copyright © 2003-2011 David Schultz or
|Copyright © 2003-2009 Steven G. Kargl or

|Copyright © 2008 Stephen L. Moshier
|and labelled as such in comments in the individual source files. All
|have been licensed under extremely permissive terms.
|The ARM memcpy code (src/string/arm/memcpy_el.S) is Copyright © 2008
|The Android Open Source Project and is licensed under a two-clause BSD
|license. It was taken from Bionic libc, used on Android.
|The implementation of DES for crypt (src/crypt/crypt_des.c) is
|Copyright © 1994 David Burren. It is licensed under a BSD license.
|The implementation of blowfish crypt (src/crypt/crypt_blowfish.c) was
|originally written by Solar Designer and placed into the public
|domain. The code also comes with a fallback permissive license for use
|in jurisdictions that may not recognize the public domain.
|The smoothsort implementation (src/stdlib/qsort.c) is Copyright © 2011
|Valentin Ochs and is licensed under an MIT-style license.
|The BSD PRNG implementation (src/prng/random.c) and XSI search API
|(src/search/*.c) functions are Copyright © 2011 Szabolcs Nagy and
|licensed under following terms: "Permission to use, copy, modify,
|and/or distribute this code for any purpose with or without fee is
|hereby granted. There is no warranty."
|The x86_64 port was written by Nicholas J. Kain and is licensed under
|the standard MIT terms.
|The mips and microblaze ports were originally written by Richard
|Pennington for use in the ellcc project. The original code was adapted
|by Rich Felker for build system and code conventions during upstream
|integration. It is licensed under the standard MIT terms.
|The mips64 port was contributed by Imagination Technologies and is
|licensed under the standard MIT terms.
|The powerpc port was also originally written by Richard Pennington,
|and later supplemented and integrated by John Spencer. It is licensed
|under the standard MIT terms.
|All other files which have no copyright comments are original works
|produced specifically for use as part of this library, written either
|by Rich Felker, the main author of the library, or by one or more
|contibutors listed above. Details on authorship of individual files
|can be found in the git version control history of the project. The
|omission of copyright and license comments in each file is in the
|interest of source tree size.
|In addition, permission is hereby granted for all public header files
|(include/* and arch/*/bits/*) and crt files intended to be linked into
|applications (crt/*, ldso/dlstart.c, and arch/*/crt_arch.h) to omit
|the copyright notice and permission notice otherwise required by the
|license, and to use these files without any requirement of
|attribution. These files include substantial contributions from:
|Nicholas J. Kain
|all of whom have explicitly granted such permission.
|This file previously contained text expressing a belief that most of
|the files covered by the above exception were sufficiently trivial not
|to be subject to copyright, resulting in confusion over whether it
|negated the permissions granted in the license. In the spirit of
|permissive licensing, and of not having licensing issues being an
|obstacle to adoption, that text has been removed.
