My goal is to develop an automated means to obtain the number of followers for each of a list of WordPress blog feeds (eg https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/93815501), which display the number of followers in a way that is saved in a text-only file (such as Firefox's "Save Page as... Text Files") but is not in the HTML page source code.
I'm a Perl novice, and (regrettably) don't currently have the patience or interest to learn Perl "from the ground up". My strategy has been to find working code samples that do pieces of what I want, then change them incrementally until they do all I want. Thanks.
