    As defined by Wikipedia.

    RSS (acronymic for Really Simple Syndication) is "a group of XML based web-content distribution and republication (Web syndication) formats primarily used by news sites and weblogs (blogs)." Essentially, an RSS feed is a hosted XML file from which your RSS newsreader pulls headlines, URLs, and other content as it is updated.

    Remember, Google is your friend, leethomas. And also, if you wanted to know what wikipedia said, why not just go to Wikipedia and get immediate answers, instead of wasting your time here waiting for a response?

    Please note that your two posts, this one and the other about web spiders, in which you and samayaranjan answer each other's simple questions, raises suspicions about you and Samayaranjan. Especially since your IP addresses put you in the same neighborhood (network speaking) in India.

    In fact, it appears you both are in Bhubaneswar, India and both just happen to be at:

    Latitude: 20.2333
    Longitude: 85.8333​

    That puts you in the same building and raises serious red flags about your intentions here. If fully innocent and this is just a coincidence, then I apologize. But if you two, leethomas and samayaranjan (if you are not the same person) don't use this forum for its intended purposes, that is, to help people, or to seek "real" help with your computer problems, you risk permanent banishment.
