My RSS Feeds, version 2.1

Now my quick-and-dirty RSS feed aggregator works a lot better than the last version I posted.

Changes from before:

  • Generate the HTML page in parallel while downloading RSS feeds, instead of waiting until all feeds have been downloaded. This lets the script run significantly faster, especially when aggregating large numbers of feeds.
  • Fix the timestamps of cached files, so the “don’t re-download this feed for the next X hours” code works as intended. (LWP::Simple sets the timestamp to the Last-Modified time, not the time the download was done; the new code works around this.)
  • Probably a few minor things here and there that I can’t think of now.

You can download the latest version here.
