parsing rss with PEAR::xml_rss

Im using the php/PEAR xml_rss library to parse a feed into one of my sites. the problem is that the server grabs the rss feed from the remote site every time someone loads a page. as you can imagine, ive been temporarily banned from hamming their server. anyone know if there is a caching function built into xml_rss? I need to restrict it to check the feed every 30 minutes or so.

Can't you mirror the RSS file locally using a cron-job?

You could also mirror using PHP and add a timecheck that will only update after a certain time.

Try using Magpie RSS [magpierss.sourceforge.net] which has built in caching.
