alas poor http://search.cpan.org/uploads.rdf

|
It would be nice if my feed reader / XML::Feed using script could parse http://search.cpan.org/uploads.rdf but sadly, owing to a certain CPAN Author's modules containing embedded backspaces (^H), the uploads.rdf generating code produces invalid XML (it converts ^H to  which is an invalid XML character), and shockingly enough, most feed readers (and XML::Feed) validate feed XML before parsing.
