I really like to work with amphetadesk written by perlmonk morbus. In short it get's the RSS feed from sites you can subscribe to. Very elegant! (and purely in Perl of course)

Now the problem is that the RSS coming from perlmonks.org cannot be parsed. It contains additional <RDF> </RDF> tags which seem to be non-standard here. The feed coming from use.perl.org or www.perl.com is fine btw.

Who knows more? I'm not an expert for the XML formats used but simply a user in this case. Who could possibly help sorting this out?

    Perlmonks is creating a 0.90 feed, the first public release of RSS. The docs no longer exist anywhere on Netscape's server, but you can see them in archive.org. The example shows no <RDF>, so the <RDF> needs to come out to be parsed correctly.
