Very minor item from a quick look. The Quick start section seems to be
about building the project. While exceptionally complete content, I was
expecting something like a simplified version of the example code, say, how
do I make a --help option or how do I get a filename name as the first
argument into a function that opens the file.

Otherwise, nicely done with having all the resources and such as the
documentation and the package submission all ready to go. Pretty clean and

Hello all!

Long time listener, first time caller. Love the show :P.

So -- I built a thing. And if any of you have time over the holiday
break, I'd appreciate any feedback you have.

The code / docs are in the usual places:


There are two "levels" of feedback I'm looking for.

First, I've been in the forest so long on this thing that I'm not sure
whether the tutorial explains the concepts well, if at all. It all
makes sense to me, of course, but it's impossible for me to look at it
with a fresh set of eyes.

So -- not considering whether the library itself sucks -- does the
tutorial explain things well? Is the pace appropriate? Too much detail
/ too little?

Second, any feedback on the library itself is welcome. This is the
first "real" thing I've released into the world, but I'll try not to
be too sensitive! I'm curious (and a honestly a little afraid) about
what y'all will think.

Thanks, and happy holidays!
