The Quick Start guide is intended to give a (very) quick
tour of some things you can do with Bro, so don't worry
if you don't understand why the examples are written the
way they are.

There is more complete documentation in the "Reference"
section.  For example, the "Notice Framework" document gives
more background information that will help you understand
the example in the Quick Start guide.

For documentation about specific Bro scripts, the
"Bro Package Index" or "Bro Script Index" pages are
quite useful (these are listed on the table of contents of the
Bro Manual).
