I have a script that rips through assorted web sites and their RSS feeds and emails me new stuff.
The ugprade to use.perl.org messed up the use.perl.org due to some API changes. So, some notes:
journal.pl takes parameters, as is typical. These can be:
However the RSS form doesn't use all those ops. It just lists recent updates or a given person's articles. Dodgy. If you use op=top then you can use the parameter type which can be any of count, friends and 'something else', which will list people by number of posts, number of friends or by order of recent postings respectively.
Unlike the last time I looked, there doesn't appear to be a way to get the actual articles in the RSS feeds except by making one's own feeds. Intentional or flaw?
