BaldPenguin has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am trying to generate RSS2 feeds that use custom or non-default namespaces. I have the following restriction, the solution must be Pure Perl, not requiring any compilation before I upload to a hosted server.

I can create the RSS2 feed fine enough with XML::RSS but I need to add some custom data to the feed. I was trying to follow the examples of itunes and yahoo by adding a custom namespace (module) to the feed (ala add_module), but that only seems to work for RSS1 and below.

I am using v1.12, because at v1.20 the module is no longer PP and it's prerequisites require compilation. The code I am using is almost straight out of the docs.

Updated: XML::RSS depends on XML::Parser which is not PurePerl. v1.20 added some date formatting routines that require DateTime to be installed which I cannot load on the remote machine.

Has anyone else had any luck with this?

Everything I've learned in life can be summed up in a small perl script!
