+Distribution Details
+This distribution comes with several sample and tutorial programs in
+its samples/ directory. These programs are NOT installed because they
+have limited use and take up about 400 kilobytes (around half of the
+total distribution).
+The lib/ directory includes a few useful utilities, including a
+relatively portable pipe creator. It uses pipe() or falls back to
+INET domain sockets. There's also a small test coverage tracer
+module, harness, and report. The test coverage summary at the end of
+this file is part of the report. These utilities aren't installed
+The test programs, in t/, may also be interesting examples, although
+they're more geared towards exercising POE's bits. The tests also
+aren't installed.
+All in all, the actual installed bits of POE are probably around 1/4
+of the total distribution, and half of them are PODs.
