XML::RSS::Headline::UsePerlJournals - XML::RSS::Headline Example Subclass


You can also subclass XML::RSS::Headline to tweak the rss content to your liking. In this example. I change the headline to remove the date/time and add the Use Perl Journal author's ID. Also in this use Perl; rss feed you get the actual link to the journal entry, rather than the link just to the user's journal. (meaning that the journal URLs contain the entry's ID)
    use XML::RSS::Feed;
    use XML::RSS::Headline::UsePerlJournals;
    use LWP::Simple qw(get);
    my $feed = XML::RSS::Feed->new(
        name  => "useperljournals",
        hlobj => "XML::RSS::Headline::UsePerlJournals",
        delay => 60,
        url   => "" 
                 . "author=&op=journals&content_type=rss",
    while (1) {
        print $_->headline . "\n" for $feed->late_breaking_news;
Here is the output from rssbot on in channel #news (which uses these modules)
