80 What POE Is
81 -----------
82
83 POE is a networking and multitasking (some say cooperative threading)
84 framework for Perl. It has been in active development since 1996,
85 with its first open release in 1998. O'Reilly's Perl Conference (now
86 OSCON) named POE "Best New Module" in 1999.
87
88 POE has been used in mission-critical systems such as internetworked
89 financial markets, file systems, commerce and application servers. It
90 has been used in projects ranging from a few lines of code to tens of
91 thousands.

93 POE is compatible with perl versions as old as 5.005_03. This may
94 change in the future.

95
96 POE includes an evolving component framework. Components are
97 high-level, modular, reusable pieces of programs. Several components
98 have been published on the CPAN, and more are listed on POE's web
99 site.
100
101 POE includes components and libraries for making quick work of network
102 clients, servers, and peers. A simple stand-alone web application
103 takes about 30 lines of code, most of which is your own custom logic.
