In previous posts, we have looked at feeds as updates for resources and commentary. It can also be useful to convert their current contents into a web page. For example, links can be inserted into a wiki by pasting from rss2html sourced from a bookmark site such as delicious using selected tags. This is the case for The Art of Debugging with GDB, DDD and Eclipse, Matloff and Salzman, 2008 based on gdb tag, and Lab Notebook from notebook tag. The wiki itself supplies another feed. It is possible then to translate between content management system (CMS) types such as bookmarks, wiki, database, spreadsheet, documentation or website.
