+Data::Section::Simple is a simple module to extract data from "__DATA__"
+section of a file.
+As the name suggests, this module is a simpler version of the excellent
+Data::Section. If you want more functionalities such as merging data
+sections or changing header patterns, use Data::Section instead.
+This module does not implement caching (yet) which means in every
+"get_data_section" or "get_data_section($name)" this module seeks and
+re-reads the data section. If you want to avoid doing so for the better
+performance, you should implement caching in your own caller code.
+If you don't like this design, again, use the superior Data::Section.
