Right, there is however a lib/OpenFrame/Install.pod which I've just
updated to clear things up. I guess we should copy the text to INSTALL
to make things clear. The Apache stuff still hasn't been fleshed out.

You can run the examples (which use the standalone HTTP server) after
making install which should give you a good idea of how things work.

The Perl modules get installed. Nothing else. It's just an application
framework: you have to build the rest. However, it isn't hard. For
example, go into "examples/hangman2/" and run "./hangman2" for a full
(fun!) example using sessions and TT2.

Right. I guess should contain a top-level description of
how it all works. I'm going to turn the examples into walk-throughs as
that'll help too I imagine.

It's not *that* much work:

  % cvs update
  % perldoc lib/OpenFrame/Install.pod
  % make install
  % cd examples/hangman2/
  % ./

Try it out and tell us what you think ;-)
