Elements or Lower

Fri, 10 Sep 2004


I’ve finally added my first module to the CPAN.

XML::Generator::RSS10::egms helps to incorporate the mandatory eGMS category metadata into an RSS feed. It’s in use right now for Woking’s Latest News feed.

Of course, it’s only the slightest bit useful if you’re producing an RSS feed for a UK government site (and only then if you’re doing that in Perl), so its audience is probably fairly minimal. Nonetheless, the LAWS Syndication Guidelines are hairy enough that someone might find this really useful. It can’t hurt, at any rate.

It’s accompanied by XML::Generator::RSS10::gcl and XML::Generator::RSS10::lgcl, which are rather more trivial, and should install automatically if you use CPAN.pm for the egms module.
