want it, that you can change NetHack _ use pieces of it in new free
programs, _ that you know you can do these things.

_ make sure that everyone has such rights, we have _ forbid you to
deprive anyone else of these rights. For example, if you distribute copies
of NetHack, you must give _ recipients all _ rights that you have. You
must make sure that they, too, receive _ can get _ source code. _ you
must tell them their rights.

Also, for our own protection, we must make certain that everyone finds out
that there _ no warranty for NetHack. If NetHack _ modified by someone
else _ passed on, we want its recipients _ know that what they have is
not what we distributed.

    program a copy of this License Agreement along with _ program.
