    I particularly like XML::RSS::Parser. I've used it successfully before to parse RSS feeds.

    Good luck!

    In the website's html, uri of the corresponding RSS feed may be specified as
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="?node=section_rss;section=perlquestion;xmlstyle=rss" / +>

    You could use XML::Feed's find_feeds method.
