7. The Atom Syndication Format > 7.3. Producing Atom Feeds

Producing Atom Feeds

Because it is still in its infancy, the Atom Syndication Format has few libraries available to make its generation a simple matter. Unlike RSS, with its years of development, people haven’t had the time or opportunity to build Perl modules or the like. The few that do exist are invariably out of date or will be by the time you read this book. With this in mind, therefore, there is little point in detailing those that do exist. By the time Atom goes to Version 1.0, there will be simpler alternatives, and we’ll cover those in later editions of this book. Preorder now!

From that you’ll see, of course, that using a library for the creation of Atom feeds is overkill. For most simple uses, you’re perfectly well off using a series of print commands or using a templating system as if you were producing ordinary RSS.
