Writing a simple RSS aggregator.by DigitalKitty (Parson)
|on Dec 06, 2003 at 02:11 UTC||Need Help??|
DigitalKitty has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am in the process of writing an RSS aggregator for a professor and he is not willing to install modules himself or permit anyone else to do so ( annoying indeed ). Therefore, I am relegated to using regexes. In the process of testing the tool on thraxil.org, I noticed there is no output displayed. My code ( thus far ):
The rss source I am trying to parse can be seen at http://thraxil.org/rss.
I need to capture the title, link, and description data then display each group of three with the <link> info as a hyperlink to the article / node.
I feel as though I am quite close but a little assistance would be quite beneficial.
