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. . .
