Today I fixed to two bugs in my rssfetch script and uploaded a new version. Because I wanted to evaluate if it is worth writing a blog entry about it, i grepped my Webservers log. I was surprised that several people query google with “use XML::RAI“. Obviously they are looking for examples how to use this CPAN module. There was only one hit, that used “import feedparser” as a query, although py-feedparser is _the_ reference parser for RSS. Now i wonder, is perl really more than 10 times more popular than python? Or are python hackers just smarter and don’t need example code?
