indeed it's much simpler to grab the rss rdf file with LWP::Simple && parse with XML::RSS :)
code example:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use XML::RSS; use LWP::Simple; my $news = ( 'slashdot' => ['Slashdot', ''] # add some more rss news sites .. ); foreach my $news ( keys %news) { $rsspage=get $news{$news}[1]; print "$news{$news}[0]:\n"; $rss = new XML::RSS; $rss->parse($rsspage); foreach my $item (@{$rss->{'items'}}) { print "\t$item->{'title'}\n"; print "\t$item->{'link'}\n\n"; } }
just add the timer for your convinience :)
