Most of the API should be internally documented with POD. Just run perldoc 
on the file you are interested in and you will get the sort of 
documentation that is standard with a Perl module. On the wiki, there are 
some howtos and examples that might help you get started. However, the 
actual Mason components are the definitive reference implementation of the 
API and it is often worth looking through that code.
