been finalized. The module will be available at your local
CPAN archive. Alternatively, try one of the 2 URLs:

This Perl module provides a basic framework for creating and maintaining

RDF Site Summary (RSS) files. This distribution also contains several
examples that allow you to generate HTML from an RSS file.
This might be helpful if you want to include news feeds on your Web
site from sources like Slashot and Freshmeat.

RSS is primarily used by content authors who want to create a
Netscape Netcenter channel, however, that doesn't exclude us from using
in other applications.
For example, you may want to distribute daily news headlines to partners
customers who convert it to some other format, like HTML.

For the most part the module adheres to the RSS spec as it exists at
Unfortunately, the RSS spec also allows one to use any HTML entity
first declaring them. Since XML::RSS is based on XML::Parser, you
can only use the default XML entities.

Please send comments, problems, etc. to eisen at I am especially
looking for suggestion for  additional functionality.
