in reply to Perl program for displaying RSS feed?

Use XML::RSS installed locally within your home directory. Here is an example:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use XML::RSS; use lib './path/to/home/dir/perl/libs'; # optionally download via a url # or slurp in a file use LWP::Simple; my $url = "http://someurl/file.rss"; my $document = get($url); my $rss = new XML::RSS(Style => 'Debug'); $rss->parse($document); foreach my $item (@{$rss->{'items'}}) { print "<a href=\"$item->{link}\">$item->{title}</a>\n"; }
