Like create_readme() except it just contains install information. It should contain, as available... * Basic instructions like the Build mantra. * Prerequisites including modules, perl itself and if a C compiler is needed. * Instructions for common install options like --installbase=~ * The abstract for the module * Contact resources if there's trouble installing.
