Perl6::Doc is on CPAN now

Read about Perl 6 in your command line.

I renamed Perl6::Bible to Perl6::Doc so what? Actually I updated the design docs, added several interesting Docs from the Pugs SVN, fixed some quirks and (most important) I am willing to maintain this and add further writings such as articles, and articles and tutorials written by myself, so you get access to many relevant materials about Perl 6 the way you may prefer.

There will be also an second Module (probably Perl6::Doc::Update), that updates your local copy of the Synopses and other stuff, so you don't need to update the module instead. Actually the core code is already written, but I have to bring it in decent module shape.

    This is probably a silly question, and it's also somewhat of an aside, but could someone please point me to where I can find the source files of the synopses? I don't see them in the Parrot source (find . -name '*S[01]*'), and although the Pugs source has a lot of docs (and is just plain huge, besides), I'm not able to find them in there either.

    I can see from the posts to p.p6.l that they're in someplace that looks like doc/trunk/design/syn :). I'm not seeing any obvious links to the source for them on the synopses page though... maybe I need another cup of tea.

        Ah. Of course. Thank you.

        One big weird thing I notice though: neither these docs, nor the ones that come with Parrot (nor the ones that come with Pugs) use our shiny new Perl6-Perldoc (thank you Damian!).

        In fact, ... S26.pod6 isn't in with the other synopses, even though it's been available in its current form since April.

        Was there a decision from on-high to not use Perl6::Perldoc, or is it simply that no one has yet bothered to convert to the updated format?
