Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So what I'm looking for is easy enough to code, but I'm wondering if it already exists, so I don't going releasing duplicate code.

I need a feed reader, that prints the subject, and uri on one line, to stdout. It should be able to be configured (not necessarily by config file) to only show new feeds in say the last 5 minutes.

The reason I want this is because I'm coding my ping.fm replacement. I basically want to be able to do something like feedreader | pingit where pingit will do, foreach line of input, make a separate post. In this way I'll also be able to echo -n "my social post" | pingit I'll probably also make pingit "post" work.

-o doesn't seem to work in 1.6 it's not even in the output of the wrong syntax help. though it is oddly in the man page. –  xenoterracide Jan 27 '11 at 11:05
