I've downloaded and ran the parser and cant seem to get it to write a file with the url I've provied. so you arent the only one having issues getting it work properly.

I'm gonna look into what the code is doing and see if i can help out a bit

Hi theWOLF,

First, this:

Should be this:

That is the url=... portion should be set to the URL of the RSS feed you want to get.

. . . . . . .
Other things to consider:

1. You MUST have the LWP::UserAgent module installed in your Perl installation. To see if you do, type:

perl -MLWP::UserAgent -e '{1}'

at a telnet command line. Let me know if you can't get access to this module. If enough people don't have this module available I'll do a direct to sockets routine (hoping not since there are platform hassles).

2. Some servers prefer 555 chmods...

3. The very FIRST line of your perl file must point to where your server keeps the Perl exe. You're server could be different than the current setting. Most hosting services have a page that lists such things, but you could also look at the first lines of other perl scripts you are using.
