in reply to Converting RSS file to HTML

Don't do this manually. Someone has already done the work for you and put it on www.cpan.org in the form of XML::RSS.

#!/usr/bin/perl #Almost exactly from the docs. use XML::RSS; my $rss=XML::RSS->new(); $rss->parse($your_rss_feed_in_this_scalar); foreach my $item (@{$rss->{'items'}}) { print "title: $item->{'title'}\n"; print "link: $item->{'link'}\n\n"; print "description: $item->{'description'}\n\n"; }

I'll leave the HTML bit as an exercise to the reader. . .

[ambrus]: choroba: heh heh... I have such a doc bug report somewhere. fixed by now.
[Corion]: Once upon a time I had automatic tests for checking the synopsis, but I stopped doing that because the setup was too fragile on CPAN testers for extracting code from the SYNOPSIS.
[Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
[choroba]: Corion Sounds reasonable
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah - I basically have the same for regenerating README and README.mkdown already, except that I do that in Makefile.PL, but I guess one or the other thing should somehow work ;)
