WebFetch is a set of Perl5 modules that can download ("fetch") news from other sites for inclusion in a web page, or export your news for other sites to fetch from you and display. It can import news from Freshmeat, Slashdot, LinuxToday, Yahoo Business News, CNN, CNET News.Com, Debian Project News and others. It can export to user-created channels at Netscape's MYnetscape portal. News from WebFetch sites can also be read by EHeadlines (developed separately) for display on an Enlightenment desktop. It can also be embedded into any Perl script to use the news for itself.
