+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
+either.
+
+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.

Compatibility Between Versions

As POE moves closer towards the Common Sense axis, it sometimes
diverges away from the Backwards Compatible axis. If this version is
being installed over a previous one, please check the Changes file to
