I'm using perl and xml::rss to generate html from rss feeds. Does anyone know if there's a similar module for atom feeds?

there's the XML::Atom module that can be found on [cpan.org....] I've never used it before, but it looks like it's got some decent develpment behind it.

I have a friend that tried XML::Atom and found it to be a tad bloated honestly. He found it easier to just use XML::Parser and Unicode::String to create his feeds.

That being said, if you wanted something to drop in and take over I'd probably recommend xml::atom since the bulk of the work is already done (and if you only use 10% of the capabilities that's still work you didn't have to do manually).
