Perl script to access News Channels Can't Post

I am looking to write a perl script to access online news websites(say Reuters, Business Wire, etc) and then fetch news and do some parsing action it and then dump it in a file. Can anyone please help me getting started, by pointing me to the right resources/websites.

Hi tapsemi,

Try searching CPAN modules for "news". There's quite a lot there. If you don't find what you're looking for, I'd suggest subscribing to the news feeds of your choice and parse them with one of the RSS reader modules out there.

Good luck,
