Grouper converts Google News searches to RSS feeds

Grouper is a PHP script which converts Google News search results to RSS newsfeeds. It is the perfect companion to CaRP, which displays RSS newsfeeds in web pages, for people needing news on specific topics not addressed in RSS newsfeeds currently available.


OREM, Utah--16 October 2003--Mouken, L.C. announces the release of Grouper, a new script that converts Google News search results to RSS newsfeeds. Grouper may operate as a standalone script to generate custom RSS newsfeeds on specific topics. But its real power lies in its ability to integrate with CaRP, Mouken's highly rated caching RSS parser, to display news on specific topics on one's website.

RSS is an increasingly popular format for distributing news, weblogs, and other content. But while RSS feeds are available covering a wide range of topics, it is often difficult to find feeds for very specific subjects. For example, when one CaRP customer needed to display the latest news related to identity theft, no suitable newsfeed could be found. In response to this need, Mouken created Grouper, which can take any search terms, search Google News, and generate a newsfeed from the results.

Grouper borrows many features from CaRP including fully configurable caching of its results for increased performance, and enables sorting by date or relevance to search terms depending on customer requirements.

Pricing and Availability:

Grouper is freeware. We expect to release a commercial version in the near future with a few additional features. Expected pricing will be $5.00, or $12.00 bundled with CaRP. Grouper is available via the Mouken, L.C. website.

About Mouken, L.C.:

Mouken, L.C. offers a variety of software, website and other products including plugins to extend the power of FileMaker Pro and iMovie, an email SPAM filter, tools for importing RSS newsfeeds into websites, apparel, a chess website and more.
