Parsing XML Content for Web Pages
Alternatives to Perl for parsing RSS feeds?

 9:49 pm on Aug 16, 2002 (gmt 0)

Just starting to take a look at XML by way of an attempt to make a news headline web page for myself that uses RSS feeds. So far the only methods of parsing the XML content to include in the page is with Perl scripts, which is fine, but I was wondering if there are any alternatives.

Numerous articles on devshed about it and a recent one on evolt.org

I use an ASP script. I'm not at my coding machine, so I don't have it handy, but it's pretty much the same idea as perl, it's just ASP code. Loop through the nodes, subloop through the sub nodes, blah blah blah.

XSLT works too, but I like ASP just as well as I don't have to learn how to make those silly templates. I just yoink the variables and slap 'em onto the page when and where I need 'em.

Try the "documents" section of syndic8.com for a pretty exhaustive reviewed list. We use a php script called Fase4 - has always worked well. Also noticed there was an asp solution on the "new" list at hotscripts.com yesterday.
