+<p>Larry Wall won the Free Software Foundation Award 1998 for the Advancement
 of Free Software for his many contributions to the advancement of
 freely distributed software, most notably Perl, a robust scripting
 language for sophisticated text manipulation and system management.
 His other widely-used programs include rn (news reader), patch
 (development and distribution tool), metaconfig (a program that writes
 Configure scripts), and the Warp space-war game.

 through activities that accord with the spirit of free software.

 Any kind of activity could be eligible--writing software, writing
 documentation, publishing CDs, even journalism--but whatever the
 activity, we wanted to recognize long-term central contributions to the
 development of the world of free software.  ``Accord with the spirit''
 means, for example, that software, manuals or collections of them (on
-tape or CD) must be entirely free.  (That's free as in freedom; <A

+tape or CD) must be entirely free.  (That's free as in freedom; <a
+href="/philosophy/selling.html">selling copies</a> of free software
 for money is legitimate and would not disqualify someone from the
 award.)  Work done commercially was eligible, but we want to give
 awards to individuals, not companies.

 People such as Richard Stallman and Linus Torvalds, who have already
 received other awards for their contributions, were not eligible for
 the Free Software Award.

 The awards committee considered nominations and decided who would
 receive the award.  The committee's members were Peter Salus
 (Chairman), Scott Christley, Rich Morin, Adam Richter, Richard
 Stallman, and Vernor Vinge.
