The documentation for the parrun package claims it can be used to display parallel text. I cannot find any example code showing how to use it and I have failed to create a simple example to test how it work. How do I get this package to display parallel text as it was designed to?

You place one text stream in the fframe (f for "first" perhaps) environment, the other in the sframe (s for "second"?) environment, and add a \Place or \Place* command to typeset the contents of the environments, one above the other.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{parrun}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{xcolor}

\begin{document}
\begin{fframe}
\lipsum[1-2]
\end{fframe}
\begin{sframe}
\color{blue}\lipsum[3-4]
\end{sframe}
\Place*
\end{document}
