Create RSS Feed in C#

This C# example demonstrates how to create an RSS feed from scratch using the Tortuga RSS .NET component (refer to http://www.worldwideweb-x.com/openData.html)
// This example demonstrates how to create an RSS feed from scratch.
Tortuga.Rss rss = new Tortuga.Rss();

// We need a channel...
Tortuga.Rss channel = rss.AddNewChannel();

// Fill in our channel information:
channel.SetString("title","My RSS Feed");
channel.SetString("link","http://news.mygreatfeed.com/news");
channel.SetString("description","Top Stories in my Super-Duper News Feed");
channel.SetString("generator","Tortuga RSS");
channel.SetString("language","en");
channel.SetString("copyright"," 2005 MyGreatFeed");
channel.SetString("webMaster","[email protected]");
channel.SetDateNow("pubDate");
channel.SetDateNow("lastBuildDate");

// How about an image?
Tortuga.Rss image = channel.AddNewImage();
image.SetString("title","My Great News");
image.SetString("url","http://www.mygreatfeed.com/news.gif");
image.SetString("link","http://www.mygreatfeed.com/");

// Add an item.
Tortuga.Rss item = channel.AddNewItem();
item.SetString("title","Yahoo! Cooperates with Oppressive Chinese Regime");
String descrip = "Yahoo! passes information to the Chinese government to help convict a Chinese dissident. " +
"Journalist Shi Tao is serving a 10-year prison sentence for revealing \"state secrets\".";
item.SetString("description",descrip);
item.SetString("link","http://www.mygreatfeed.com/ShiTao.html");
item.SetString("guid","d78192a8");
item.SetAttr("guid","isPermaLink","false");
item.SetDateNow("pubDate");

// Add another item.
item = channel.AddNewItem();
item.SetString("title","Clinton Neglects to Help Dissident Exposed by Yahoo!");
String descrip2 = "Former President Clinton fails to speak out for Shi Tao or defend freedom of speech on the Internet. ";
item.SetString("description",descrip2);
item.SetString("link","http://www.mygreatfeed.com/ClintonWeenie.html");
item.SetString("guid","d78192a9");
item.SetAttr("guid","isPermaLink","false");
item.SetDateNow("pubDate");

// Now get the complete XML for the RSS feed:
textBox1.Text = rss.ToXmlString();
