podcast -- Returns RSS formatted XML playlist
Used by the wimpy_podcast.php plugin to generate RSS XML data. Allows Wimpy to be used to podcast the contents of the wimpy installation directory. To use wimpy as a podcast feed, upload the wimpy_podcast.php file tot he same folder as wimpy.php, then publish the URL to wimpy_podcast.php as your PodCast "feed". Example:
NOTE: Wimpy will only output an RSS XML playlist containing links to files in the wimpy installation folder, it will not recursively read sub-directories.
PHP: wimpy_podcast.php invokes the "podcast" action in wimpy.php to return an array ($podback) containing a list of the files into he wimpy installation directory. wimpy_podcast.php then converts the array in to RSS XML formatted data.
ASP: wimpy_podcast.asp pings wimpy.asp using the dir action (with an empty dir parameter) and rips the resulting text-based playlist into an RSS XML formatted playlist.
