XML::Atom::Syndication::Feed - class representing an Atom feed

    use XML::Atom::Syndication::Feed;
    use XML::Atom::Syndication::Entry;
    use XML::Atom::Syndication::Text;
    use XML::Atom::Syndication::Content;
    
    # create a feed
    my $feed = XML::Atom::Syndication::Feed->new;
    $feed->title('My Weblog');
    my $entry = XML::Atom::Syndication::Entry->new;
    my $title = XML::Atom::Syndication::Text->new(Name=>'title');
    $title->body('First Post');
    $entry->title($title);
    my $content = XML::Atom::Syndication::Content->new('Post Body');
    $entry->content($content);
    $feed->add_entry($entry);
    $feed->insert_entry($entry);
    print $feed->as_xml;
    
    # list entry titles of index.atom file
    my $feed2 = XML::Atom::Syndication::Feed->new('index.atom');
    my @entries = $feed->entries;
    print $_->title->body."\n" for @entries;

XML::Atom::Syndication::Feed element is the document (i.e., top-level) element of an Atom Feed Document, acting as a container for metadata and data associated with the feed. Its element children consist of metadata elements followed by zero or more entry child elements.

XML::Atom::Syndication::Feed is a subclass of XML::Atom::Syndication::Object (via XML::Atom::Syndication:::Thing) that it inherits numerous methods from. You should already be familiar with this base class before proceeding.
Class->new(%params)
In addition to the keys recognized by its superclass (XML::Atom::Syndication::Object) this class recognizes a "Stream" element. The value of this element can be a SCALAR or FILEHANDLE (GLOB) to a valid Atom document. The "Stream" element takes precedence over the standard "Elem" element.
inner_atom($atom_markup_string)
This is a convenience method for quickly setting the child Atom elements of the feed with a string. The string must also be well-formed XML. This method will replaces any existing child elements. All elements are presumed to be in the same Atom namespace as the feed object.
This method is similar to the innerHTML property found in JavaScript.
author
Indicates the author of the feed.
This accessor returns a XML::Atom::Syndication::Person object. This element can be set using a string and hash reference or by passing in an object. See Working with Object Setters in XML::Atom::Syndication::Object for more detail.
category
Conveys information about a category associated with an feed.
This accessor returns a XML::Atom::Syndication::Category object. This element can be set using a string and hash reference or by passing in an object. See Working with Object Setters in XML::Atom::Syndication::Object for more detail.
contributor
Indicates a person or other entity who contributed to the feed.
This accessor returns a XML::Atom::Syndication::Person object. This element can be set using a string and hash reference or by passing in an object. See Working with Object Setters in XML::Atom::Syndication::Object for more detail.
generator
Identifies the agent used to generate a feed for debugging and other purposes.
This accessor returns a XML::Atom::Syndication::Generator object. This element can be set using a string and hash reference or by passing in an object. See Working with Object Setters in XML::Atom::Syndication::Object for more detail.
icon
An IRI reference [RFC3987] which identifies an image which provides iconic visual identification for a feed.
This accessor returns a string. You can set this attribute by passing in an optional string.
id
A permanent, universally unique identifier for a feed.
This accessor returns a string. You can set this attribute by passing in an optional string.
link
Defines a reference from an entry to a Web resource.
This accessor returns a XML::Atom::Syndication::Link object. This element can be set using a string and hash reference or by passing in an object. See Working with Object Setters in XML::Atom::Syndication::Object for more detail.
logo

This accessor returns a string. You can set this attribute by passing in an optional string.
published
A date indicating an instance in time associated with an event early in the life of the entry.

rights

subtitle
Conveys a human-readable description or subtitle of a feed.
This accessor returns a XML::Atom::Syndication::Text object. This element can be set using a string and hash reference or by passing in an object. See Working with Object Setters in XML::Atom::Syndication::Object for more detail.
title

updated
