  • All top-level docs/* files should be user-focused. Put internals and developer documentation in docs/internals/... (users shouldn't have to dig to find help getting started, experienced developers can easily handle an extra directory level).
  • Adjust the 'make html' generators Parrot::Docs::* to match the new paths.
  • Create a tutorial for Parrot (can be pulled in from various tutorials on the web)
  • Find all examples of PIR embedded in Pod documentation anywhere in the repository, and wrap them in PIR target blocks like this:
=begin PIR
 .sub main :main
    'MySub'("name" => "Bob", "age" => 42)    # Same!
=end PIR

For now, only do this with PIR examples that contain complete subs and are expected to work. Partial examples can be wrapped with PIR_FRAGMENT instead. Examples that aren't expected to work can be wrapped in PIR_INVALID or PIR_FRAGMENT_INVALID, and examples that should work but currently don't can be wrapped in PIR_TODO or PIR_FRAGMENT_TODO.

  • For bonus points, run t/examples/pod.t after you do this and fix any errors this finds in the sample PIR.
