How do you create your websites' RSS feeds?
I run a script called createrss.pl as a cron job every hour which checks
if there are any new stories and if so creates a new feed.rss file
I think this method takes up a lot of RAM and CPU power since it
launches Perl every hour, but I can't think of anything better.
The other way I thought of (and rejected) was to have the web script
that accepts a new story from the administrator, to also create the RSS
file. But I rejected this because if two people might submit a story at
the same time then the resulting RSS file might only contain one of them.
So, how do you do it?
