Looking for help with rss & perl - never mind
Please ignore the post. It's a *lot* more complicated than this (I'm trying to hand credentials to WebSeal, the web security part of IBM's Tivoli, and their user-side docs approach zero as a limit....) Anyway, I was getting an idiot login, rather than the .rss I was expecting.

mark, editing an installed .pm to find this out

>I found a tiny perl script that checks to see if the file is "well-formed"/syntactically correct. It found one bug, and I fixed that. So it reports it's a-ok.
>Then I run the actual scraper, and it complains of a non-well-formed token. If this thing is only reading the .rss file, it's pointing to a line *far* beyond EOF. If it's actually reading the .rss file, and then trying to parse the URLs that the .rss points to, it's less clear than mud.
