( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am trying to generate RSS2 feeds that use custom or non-default namespaces. I have the following restriction, the solution must be Pure Perl, not requiring any compilation before I upload to a hosted server.

I can create the RSS2 feed fine enough with XML::RSS but I need to add some custom data to the feed. I was trying to follow the examples of itunes and yahoo by adding a custom namespace (module) to the feed (ala add_module), but that only seems to work for RSS1 and below.

I am using v1.12, because at v1.20 the module is no longer PP and it's prerequisites require compilation. The code I am using is almost straight out of the docs.

Updated: XML::RSS depends on XML::Parser which is not PurePerl. v1.20 added some date formatting routines that require DateTime to be installed which I cannot load on the remote machine.

Has anyone else had any luck with this?

Everything I've learned in life can be summed up in a small perl script!

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
