This code will display any items from five different newsfeeds which contain the word "Microsoft" in either the title or description. Note that it is a good idea to set up background refreshing when accessing so many newsfeeds from the same page. Also note how $carpconf['poweredby'] was set to '' to avoid having "Newsfeed display by CaRP" displayed after the items extracted from each feed:

require_once "/path/to/carp.php";

// don't show any channel fields

// display a bullet before each item
CarpConf('bi','&bull ');

// only show items mentioning Microsoft

// show up to 3 items from each newsfeed

// show up to 100 characters of the description

// don't show "Newsfeed display by CaRP" after each newsfeed

// Update every 2 hours

// filter and display the data from each newsfeed
<i><a href="" target="_blank">Newsfeed display by CaRP</a></i>
Example Output:

[CaRP] XML error: Undeclared entity error at line 42 - This appears to be an HTML webpage, not a feed.

[CaRP] XML error: XML_ERR_NAME_REQUIRED at line 1 -
