I would like to include the ability to poll an RSS feed. I run a game which pushes an Atom feed and would like to have MUSHclient poll the feed from a website and display if there are new items.

I have a LUA script to parse an atom feed, but am unsure how I can go about reading from the internet.

You can use LuaSocket to access web sites (which would include RSS feeds).
