6.1 gpl: Show the GNU General Public License notice

The gpl command displays the license notice for the latest version of the GNU General Public License. Options --v1, --v2, and --v3 control which version of the license is shown.

To display the full license text instead of just the license notice, use the --full option. To see the full text in html, use the --full-html option.

The --jerkwad option removes the Or any later version clause from the license notice.

This command downloads the license from www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt.
