 Once you have checked out a copy of pynie, build it as follows:
   $ cd pynie
-  $ perl --gen-parrot
+  $ .configure
   $ make
 current directory.   Pynie doesn't currently have a "make install"
-The "--gen-parrot" option tells to automatically
-download (via 'svn') and build the version of Parrot most
-appropriate for the copy of Pynie you currently have.  It's
-okay to use the --gen-parrot option on later invocations of; the configure system will re-build Parrot only
-if a newer version is needed for whatever version of Pynie
-you're working with.
 To invoke pynie on a Python program from a shell prompt, use:
-  $ ./pynie
+  $ parrot pynie.pbc
 To run interactively, entering single-line statements:
-  $ ./pynie
+  $ parrot pynie.pbc
 Note that pynie's interactive mode is not yet up to spec
 with Python's interactive mode (it doesn't handle blocks yet).
   $ make test
-Also note that the binary executable has hardcoded paths to
-the Parrot build tree, so removing or moving the parrot build
-tree will cause the binary to stop working.
 To display the parse tree, add the "--target=parse" option:
-  $ ./pynie --target=parse
+  $ parrot pynie.pbc --target=parse
 Or, to display the abstract syntax tree, the opcode syntax tree,
 or the generated PIR code, use "--target=PAST", "--target=POST",
 compiling F<pynie.pir> to produce F<pynie.pbc>.
 The F<pynie.pbc> file can also be used to compile Python code
-from PIR:
+from within PIR:
     load_bytecode 'pynie.pbc'
     $S0 = 'print "hello world"'          # source code to compile
