please help - i need an rss perl script ihajjee
I can't get any perl scripts to work, I need an RSS perl script and please show me how to use it (call it) from a html file.
I can't seem to get the simplest things to work at times!?!?!?
I don't understand what you mean. Please explain it better.
2 Things 1) The perl script 2) the SSI
1) I can't seem to find a perl script that I can get to work. Since my thread, I have found a perl script, but when I feed it the xml file, it doesn't read it, I haven't looked at other xml feeds to see if it's the xml file, or the perl script that is the problem. Can you suggest any xml files to point to?
2) SSI? I haven't used SSI, so I don't know the first thing about it. Do I need my host to configure the host to allow it? because I can run the scripts directly from the browser, yet when I put an SSI into a html file, I get a blank.
also, regarding SSI
Do I need an absolute url to point to the cgi file, or can a relative path do?
ok, I've been trying different xml files.
some work and some don't
To summarize, i have a rss perl script. It works for some xml files and not for others?
It seems the xml I want has encoding="iso-8859-1" next to the xml version:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
rss version 2.0
It seems that those xml files with xml ver 1.0 and rss version 2.0, but no encoding="iso-8859-1" seem to work?
I don't know? I haven't a clue? I'm new to rss.
I'll attach a url to a simple cgi script that you can use with SSI.
You can also try searching at the usual script repositories like hot scripts, cgi resouces etc.
