Online Documentation Browsers
The complete Bricolage API & command-line documentation is available for browsing online. Documentation browsers are available for all major releases of Bricolage, as well as the current development branch from the source code repository.
Bricolage uses a form of embedded documentation called
POD to document its API inside the Bricolage source files. If you have Bricolage installed then you can read the documentation using the perldoc command and a properly setup
$PERL5LIB environment variable. For example:
% PERL5LIB=/usr/local/bricolage perldoc Bric::Admin
If you don’t have Bricolage installed, feel free to browse the documentation online.
