Perlmonks User RSS Maker

This is a tool for making an minimal RSS feed of a user's posts from the Perlmonks website. I made it to incude my perlmonks posts in my Drupal life aggregator with my perlmonks posts. You can construct an url to get ther feed from scripts or the CLI by hand using[monk_name]Where [monk_name] is the name of a monk. Unusual characters in monk names are not supported. I suck the data as XML like this[monk_name]&order=desc&limit=10Then I use XML::Simple and some simple minded print statements to make an RSS of the data, which I cache (for one hour).
