$Id$ -------------------- Detailed Information -------------------- POE is bigger than this README. Please see its web site at http://poe.perl.org/ for more information. --------------------- Documentation Roadmap --------------------- POE includes a lot of documentation. The main POE man page includes references to everything else. POE has been around for a while. The CHANGES file has been limited to changes in the past year to help keep the distribution size down. POE's web site includes a complete change history broken down by release. -------------- Installing POE -------------- See http://poe.perl.org/?Where_to_Get_POE for download sites, Windows installation tips, and anonymous CVS instructions. POE may be installed through the CPAN shell in the usual manner. % perl -MCPAN -e shell cpan> install POE To install on a Win32 machine using ActiveState's PPM. If PPM fails, try PPM3. > ppm install http://unc.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/poe/POE.ppd or > ppm3 install http://unc.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/poe/POE.ppd ------------ Test Results ------------ POE is tested before each release, and afterwards by at least two groups of people. Each group posts its results on the web: http://eekeek.org/poe-tests/ -- Automated test reports by users like you. http://testers.cpan.org/search?request=dist&dist=POE -- CPAN testers' reports. POE's ongoing improvement relies on your feedback. The easiest way to let us know how we're doing is to "make reportupload" after building POE. % make reportupload Reportupload will test POE, generate a report file, and upload it. If the upload fails, you can send it manually from the form at <http://eekeek.org/poe-tests/>. You can also file bug reports, feature requests, and even success stories by e-mailing <bug-POE@rt.cpan.org>. ------------- Test Coverage ------------- POE's tests cover a significant portion of the distribution. A thumbnail sketch of POE's test coverage is available, but do not use it as an accurate gauge of quality. http://poe.perl.org/?POE%27s_test_coverage_report ----------- What POE Is ----------- POE is a networking and multitasking (some say cooperative threading) framework for Perl. It has been in active development since 1996, with its first open release in 1998. O'Reilly's Perl Conference (now OSCON) named POE "Best New Module" in 1999. POE has been used in mission-critical systems such as internetworked financial markets, file systems, commerce and application servers. It has been used in projects ranging from a few lines of code to tens of thousands. POE is compatible with perl versions as old as 5.005_03. This may change in the future. POE includes an evolving component framework. Components are high-level, modular, reusable pieces of programs. Several components have been published on the CPAN, and more are listed on POE's web site. POE includes components and libraries for making quick work of network clients, servers, and peers. A simple stand-alone web application takes about 30 lines of code, most of which is your own custom logic. ---- Bye! ---- Thanks for reading! -- Rocco Caputo / email@example.com / poe.perl.org
