NAME ^

WebFetch::Input::RSS - download and save an RSS feed

SYNOPSIS ^

In perl scripts:

use WebFetch::Input::RSS;

From the command line:

perl -w -MWebFetch::Input::RSS -e "&fetch_main" -- --dir directory --source rss-feed-url [...WebFetch output options...]

DESCRIPTION ^

This module gets the current headlines from a site-local file.

The --input parameter specifies a file name which contains news to be posted. See "FILE FORMAT" below for details on contents to put in the file. --input may be specified more than once, allowing a single news output to come from more than one input. For example, one file could be manually maintained in CVS or RCS and another could be entered from a web form.

After this runs, the file site_news.html will be created or replaced. If there already was a site_news.html file, it will be moved to Osite_news.html.

RSS FORMAT ^

RSS is an XML format defined at http://www.rssboard.org/rss-specification

WebFetch::Input::RSS uses Perl's XML::RSS to parse RSS "Really Simple Syndication" version 0.9, 0.91, 1.0 or 2.0, whichever is provided by the server.
