google2rss

[ #4224 ]
I was surprised google2rss wasn't written in Perl. My expectation is that anything named 'x2y' will be written in Perl!

  • Between SOAP::Lite (especially with the existing support for WSDL) and XML::RSS, this sort of thing would be little more than a one-liner. You'll spend more lines setting up your call to Getopt::{Long,Std} to handle command-line data for the RSS channel, than you'll actually spend in any sort of real logic loop.

    • Yes. But people are lazy and prefer to use than write. Well, some. Others will.

      In any case, I've just about finished google2rss, perl version. Just making the option code elegant, since it's the majority of the code.

      Hmm. For the rest of this, see my journal [perl.org]. It was getting a bit long for a comment in someone else's journal. Just give me a few minutes to write it =)
