WebFetch::Input::Atom - WebFetch input from Atom feeds
This is an input module for WebFetch which accesses an Atom feed. The --source parameter contains the URL of the feed.
From the command line:
perl -w -MWebFetch::Input::Atom -e "&fetch_main" -- --dir directory --source atom-feed-url [...WebFetch output options...]
In perl scripts:
use WebFetch::Input::Atom; my $obj = WebFetch->new( "dir" => "/path/to/fetch/workspace", "source" => "http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=%23twiki", "source_format" => "atom", "dest" => "dump", "dest_format" = "/path/to/dump/file", ); $obj->do_actions; # process output $obj->save; # save results
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
