    Having difficulty knowing how to run jsmfeed.pl   (Date posted: 07/26/06 at 14:39:22) Quote Modify Delete

Hello, I think I understand only the basics of how the jsmfeed.pl works, but I don't know how to run it for converting an rss feed. This is where I am. I uploaded the jsmfeed.pl to a directory keeping the name and everything in it as is. I added a xml url address to the javascript in the header of a web page per your instructions.

$./JSMFeed.pl -ns=np -url=http://NewsPeak.com/feed.xml -o=/doms/me/www/feeds/np.js
and found this just above that talks about running a cron, do I need a dedicated server to do this? I cannot run commands on my server with the account I have. Is there a way I can do a rss conversion without running these commmands on my server?

Hope someone can help. Thanks a lot. Simone

Hi Simone,

Yes, I'm sorry, but you have to be able to run server-side scripts in order to run JSMFeed.pl.

The script will produce a JavaScript file that can THEN be used by client-side-only webmasters, but JSMFeed.pl itself needs to be run on a server.

There are services out there that may let you do something similar on their servers...

Try this:

http://www.feedburner.com

I don't use them personally so can't vouch for them. Others here have used them for converting ATOM to RSS, and found them useful. I don't know if they will also do what you need (only guessing they will).

HTH.
