you can use it without charge, but it is NOT public domain

that the author places upon its use.  You may use this 
software without any charge.  You may also freely share this 
software with others, as long as you make no changes to the 
software and include all the files you received when giving 
a copy to someone else.

    may be used only in accordance with the terms and 
    conditions of the license and with inclusion of the 
    copyright notice.  This software is the sole property of 
    Michael J. Roberts.  No title to or ownership of this 
    software is hereby transferred.

    The information contained in this software is subject to

    You are hereby granted permission to use, reproduce, and 
    distribute this software subject to all of the following 

    1. You must include this license and the copyright 
    notice with all copies.

    collect a fee for copies of this software, or any part 
    of this software, that you give to other people. 
    3. You may not include this software with any
    other software for which a fee is collected.

    receives all of the same permissions that you

    An exception to the above terms is granted for the TADS

    part of TADS, that allows TADS games to be played).  The 
    TADS Run-time executable may be redistributed subject 
    only to the following restrictions: it is distributed as 
    part of a game developed with TADS; the game contains 
    your own copyright notice; and the TADS run- time 
    executable is not modified in any way, and in particular 
    displays its copyright notice.

    In other words, we don't want others to make a profit 
    from selling TADS itself, but we want TADS game 
    developers to be able to share or sell their games 
    (which necessarily must include the TADS run-time 
    executable) in any way they please.

    files, adv.t and std.t, in any way you want, provided 
    that if you redistribute modified copies of these files
