Ted’s Article on Publishing news via xml

I tried to find a direct link to the article but instead had to settle for the past issues index. (Note to Pinnacle: your search isn’t working)

Ted writes a great article on how to publish RSS/XML with VFP in the May issue of FoxTalk.(plus he mentions this Blog so yeah Ted!)

Visual FoxPro is a great tool for this because of its exception handling of text and data. What other types of application information could you post via RSS? The possibilities are out there…

Consider an application suite that publishes update notices via RSS and an application reader that reads in the RSS and lets the user choose what they are using.

This isn’t a new concept but using RSS, application providers could finally have a single standard from which to work with.

Great article and very useful.
