6.2 lgpl: Show the GNU Lesser General Public License notice

The lgpl command displays the license notice for the latest version of the GNU Lesser General Public License. Options --v2, --v2.1, 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/lgpl.txt, except for version 3 of the license notice. A local copy of the version 3 license notice is used.
