Bricolage is documented in a format called POD
inside the Bricolage source files. If you have Bricolage installed then you
can read the documentation using the
perldoc command and a properly
$PERL5LIB environment variable. For example:
$ PERL5LIB=/usr/local/bricolage perldoc Bric::Admin
If you don't have Bricolage installed you can read the documentation here.
Be aware that this documentation comes from the CVS
version of Bricolage (updated daily) and may not exactly match the version
of Bricolage you're using. For information about what's changed between Bricolage
releases see Bric::Changes.
