    48 You've downloaded, configured, compiled, tested and created the html documentation for Parrot. Now it's time to start reading. Parrots source documentation is stored in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_Old_Documentation POD] format. If you ran make html you can the view the documentation as html. The file docs/html/index.html is the place to start. An alternative and more flexible method for viewing the documentation is to use [http://search.cpan.org/dist/Pod-Perldoc/lib/perldoc.pod perl-doc] to view the actual pod files. Perldoc will allow you to view the pod files formated as man pages. It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to read the documentation for this project.
