HI,
yesterday i posted a question on XSL transformation and i was able to solve that.
Now my question is on RSS parsing.
I tried using XML::RSS and was trying to install the module.
There are many dependencies and i was not able to install the module.
Anybody have an idea on which other module to use other than XML::RSS?

I guess that first, I would have to have you provide a bit more information:

1. Which OS are you on?
2. What version of Perl are you using? By this I mean if you are on Windows, are you using ActiveState Perl or Strawberry Perl?
3. How are you trying to install the module?

Regards,

Jeff

I am using Windows and using Activeperl 5.8.6
I am trying to download the modules from cpan and installing it.

Ok. This is a pretty standard module. Is it available for you to install with ppm instead of trying to build it by hand?

If you really want to use CPAN the way it was intended, I would suggest you migrate to Strawberry Perl if you can and use the CPAN interface it provides. You can then configure it to "follow" which is a way of saying it would install any dependencies. That's the way I have mine setup and have not had issues.

If you are insistent on installing by hand, what issues are you having?

Regards,
