Some Scripting


I was wondering if someone might point me in a general direction on how I could get this done.

I want to write a script that downloads the latest PDF file off an RSS feed.
It must continually watch the RSS feed and download when ever a newer one comes available.

  • Okay I figured it out anyway.

    Here is how I did it.

    Download the RSS as a Text File
    Looked something like this

    Plane Crash
    News24 Automated RSS Feed

    Then used Delphi to do the rest :D
  • Try using biterscripting ( ). It is great for things just like this. It can parse RSS, also can get any links it finds. If you had included a sample of your RSS, I would have written a quick script for you. But without that, you may just have to google up biterscripting+parsing.


  • Thanks Patrick will definitely go check it out.

    For Linux do you think I would be able to similar things with Pyhthon?
