npm(1) -- node package manager
-==========================
+==============================
+
+## DESCRIPTION
npm is a little package manager for the Node javascript library.
+## Installing
+
+To install npm, do this:
+
+ make install
+
+If you get any complaints, try
+
+ sudo make install
+
+That will use npm to install itself, like
+[Ouroboros](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouroboros). From there, you can call
+the command line program `npm`, and read this file by doing `man npm`.
+
+Try `npm help` for more information.

This thing is a baby yet. But these kids grow up before you know it! Pretty
soon, you'll be all tapping out your pipe on the front porch, saying in your
withered old man voice, ***"I remember back before the war with the machines,
when that npm thing couldn't even install itself, and didn't know what a
version was. We used promises for everything and the global object was called
-'node'. Movies were a nickel when we downloaded them from from the micro
+node. Movies were a nickel when we downloaded them from from the micro
torrents, and soda pop had corn syrup of the highest fructose imaginable. You
youngins don't know how good you got it."***
