-cairo-perl is a set of [Perl](http://www.perl.org/) bindings for the cairo graphics engine.
+cairo-perl provides a convenient and [Perlish](http://www.perl.org/) interface to the cairo graphics engine.
-cairo-perl is available from the [cairo-perl cvs module](http://cvs.cairographics.org/cairo-perl/) as well as through [CPAN](http://search.cpan.org/dist/Cairo/).

+cairo-perl is available from the [cairo-perl cvs module](http://cvs.cairographics.org/cairo-perl/) as well as through [CPAN](http://search.cpan.org/dist/Cairo/). If you have CPAN.pm set up, you can install cairo-perl with
+ cpan Cairo
+cairo-perl is available under the terms of the LPGL version 2.1 or later.
+The module itself contains an API listing that is available in [HTML form on CPAN](http://search.cpan.org/dist/Cairo/Cairo.pm) or in POD after you have installed cairo-perl:
+ perldoc Cairo
+For more information, refer to the [cairo manual](http://cairographics.org/manual/). Most of its content is directly applicable to the Perl bindings as well.
+For general help with using cairo and its Perl bindings, use the [cairo mailing list](http://lists.cairographics.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cairo). If the question clearly only concerns the Perl bindings, a better place might be the [gtk-perl mailing list](http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gtk-perl-list) over on gnome.org.
