pspRSS v0.2a: RSS/XML Reader W.I.P.

FreePlay has been hard at work on our forums developing a WiFi RSS/XML retriever for the PSP in Lua and today he’s released a newer version of his project. This brings us one step closer to having an RSS reader without 2.60 firmware! FreePlay says that with any luck, this may be a reality by the New Year, but don’t hold him to that. Here’s what he had to say on our forums:

The URL for the RSS feed no longer has to be hard-coded into the Lua script. It can parse a URL, grab the IP address for the domain, connect, and download a file. Actually, it can download as many files as you want, one after the next.

There’s only one problem: it’s saving the HTTP header information into the file, which causes problems for both binary files and the XML parser. I’m sure it’ll be a simple fix once I look at it. The last line of the header is always the “Content-Type” line, followed by a blank line, so I can just search for the second new line after the Content-Type and that should be the start of the file!

Things are looking good. My next step will be to read a .CFG file with a list of web addresses and feed titles. Then I can feed these web addresses into the download program, pass in the title, and have it save each feed individually.
