( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

XML::RSS:Tools might of use for you. It uses an XSLT style sheet to generate output from the data in the RSS.

use XML::RSS::Tools; my $feed = 'http://rss.example.com/'; my $xslt = '/path/to/stylesheet'; my $rss = XML::RSS::Tools->new; if ($rss->rss_uri($feed) && $rss->xsl_file($xslt) && $rss->transform) { print $rss->as_string } else { print $rss->as_string('error') };

Another possibility is XML::Feed which would give you a "programmatic" approach to generating your output.

use XML::Feed; my $feed = XML::Feed->parse(URI->new($feed)) or die XML::Feed->errstr; for my $entry ($feed->entries) { # extract info from entry and generate output }

There seems to be quite a few others on CPAN, but of the few I looked at, these seemed the simplest to use.

Side comment: I would be dubious of automatically creating tickets from any RSS feed. Even with very good filtering, you can still end up with a lot of "noise tickets" to explain to your managers.
