Is code that is published verbatim inside a paper (not as attachment)
license restricted?

The Journal of Statistical Software publishes code under GPL.
Does GPL also apply to source snippets or functions that are included
in the text of the article, or is there a fair use assumption on the
text of the article?

example: Kolmogorov distribution for two-sided ks-test

paper: http://www.jstatsoft.org/v08/i18
George Marsaglia, Wai Wan Tsang, Jingbo Wang: Evaluating Kolmogorov's
Distribution, Journal of Statistical Software Vol. 8, Issue 18, Nov
2003
