App::RSS2Leafnode -- post RSS or Atom feeds and web pages to newsgroups


 use App::RSS2Leafnode;
 my $r2l = App::RSS2Leafnode->new;
 exit $r2l->command_line;


This is the guts of the rss2leafnode program, see rss2leafnode for user-level operation.

An App::RSS2Leafnode object could be used for Perl-level scripting of some downloads.


$exitcode = App::RSS2Leafnode->command_line ()
$exitcode = $r2l->command_line ()

Run the rss2leafnode program command line. Arguments are taken from @ARGV and the return value is an exit code suitable for exit.

$r2l = App::RSS2Leafnode->new (key=>value,...)

Create and return a new RSS2Leafnode object. Optional keyword parameters are the config variables plus verbose

    verbose                   => integer

    rss_get_links             => flag 0 or 1
    rss_get_comments          => flag 0 or 1
    render                    => flag 0 or 1 or name
    render_width              => integer
    get_icon                  => flag 0 or 1
    html_extract_main         => flag 0 or 1

    user_agent                => string
    rss_newest_only           => integer or string
    rss_charset_override      => flag 0 or 1
    html_charset_from_content => flag 0 or 1
$r2l->fetch_rss ($newsgroup, $url, key=>value...)
$r2l->fetch_html ($newsgroup, $url, key=>value...)

Fetch an RSS feed or HTTP web page and post articles to $newsgroup. This is the fetch_rss() and fetch_html() operations for ~/.rss2leafnode.conf.

fetch_html() can fetch any target type, not just HTML and puts it into a single message. On an RSS feed fetch_html() would drop the whole XML into one message, whereas fetch_rss() turns it into a message per item.
