v0.10 is done. Net::RGTP can now post; I'm figuring out some new applications for this.

Here's what I posted to GROGGS about it:

From We are far too young and clever
Net::RGTP version 0.10, to hit CPAN imminently, supports posting.

I've been thinking about what to do with this new ability, and I
think it might be kind of fun to have a server where RSS feeds were
fed into RGTP. So every time (say) a new news article was posted to
the BBC site, there would be a new RGTP item to discuss.

What do you think? What RSS would be good to use?

Of course the other possibility is that now it's possible to build
a Windows RGTP client with some ease (see K3351406 and R1671542 for
previous discussion of this): just hook up wxPerl with Net::RGTP and
there you go. It could probably be put together in the evenings of a
week without too much effort.

However, I don't think a separate client has much of a chance of
being used now that there's Yarrow that anyone with a browser can use.
Then again, people are still using email programs despite the existence
of webmail.

  • Don’t use any version of RSS. Use Atom []. Users who need RSS can use one of a number of free online services which do format conversion.
    • Well, this would take input from RSS or Atom or whatever, not produce it. Someone recently attempted to go the other way, and produce Atom from RGTP, but it was politically very unpopular.
