MagpieRSS - a simple RSS integration tool

Probably the most popular PHP RSS parser, ever. Released in 2002, roughly 500k direct downloads, plus uncounted downloads as part of open source projects like Wordpress.

Additionally this code was written when PHP 4.1.2 was the state of the art, and it shows.

USAGE

require_once(rss_fetch.inc);
$url = $_GET['url'];
$rss = fetch_rss( $url );

echo "Channel Title: " . $rss->channel['title'] . "<p>";
echo "<ul>";
foreach ($rss->items as $item) {
	$href = $item['link'];
	$title = $item['title'];
	echo "<li><a href=$href>$title</a></li>";
}
echo "</ul>";

DESCRIPTION

MapieRSS is an XML-based RSS parser in PHP.  It attempts to be "PHP-like",
and simple to use.

Some features include:

* supports RSS 0.9 - 1.0, with limited RSS 2.0 support
* supports namespaces, and modules, including mod_content and mod_event
* open minded [1]
* simple, functional interface, to object oriented backend parser
* automatic caching of parsed RSS objects makes its easy to integrate
* supports conditional GET with Last-Modified, and ETag
* uses constants for easy override of default behaviour
* heavily commented
  1. By open minded I mean Magpie will accept any tag it finds in good faith that it was supposed to be here. For strict validation, look elsewhere.
