If I read correctly in the manual page it is possible to add Dublin Core (DC) metadata to RSS 2.0 feeds, even via the XML::RSS module. I seem to be missing something.

#!/usr/bin/perl use XML::RSS; use strict; use warnings; my $rss = XML::RSS->new (version => '2.0'); $rss->channel(title => 'Example Corp, Inc', link => '', language => 'en', description => 'a one-stop-shop for all your Linux', ); $rss->add_item(title => "GTKeyboard 0.85", permaLink => "", description => 'blah blah', dc => { creator => 'an author', contributor => 'an editor', }, ); print $rss->as_string; exit(0);
If I run that, I get the following, without the Dublin Core. I was expecting the Dublin Core metadata elements to somehow show up.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <rss version="2.0" xmlns:blogChannel="" > <channel> <title>Example Corp, Inc</title> <link></link> <description>the one-stop-shop for all your Linux</description> <language>en</language> <item> <title>GTKeyboard 0.85</title> <description>blah blah</description> <guid isPermaLink="true">< +/guid> </item> </channel>

I see that xmlns:dc="" is missing from the RSS element.

Perhaps I have to add the namespace

If so, how do I add it for RSS 2.0, not 1.0? The module seems to accept both legitimate DC elements as well as random stuff when making objects but does not print them.



I've also tried,

my $rss = XML::RSS->new (version => '2.0', 'xmlns:dc'=>" +", );


my $rss = XML::RSS->new (version => '2.0', namespaces => { 'xmlns:dc'=>" +dc/elements/1.1/" }, );

Neither produce any visible changes, even using Data::Dumper.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
