rss.items[0].categories.each do |category|
p category.content
end

When i try rss.items[0].category , I get the entire element( In the
above case, Industry-Airlines)

rss.items[0].category returns Category object not “<category
…>…” string. (Hint: Category object has #to_s
method that returns “<category …>…” string)

Thanks,

Thanks! I was using regular expressions to do this task!

Alternate biterscripting script.

Script category.txt

var str rss ; cat “file.rss” > $rss
while ( { sen -r -c “^^” $rss } > 0 )
do
var str category ; stex -r -c “^<category&>&</category>^” $rss >
$category
stex -r -c “^<category&>^]” $category > null ; stex -r -c “[^</
category>^” $category > null
echo $category
done

For documentation on stex (string extractor) command, see
