I want to take a simple news RSS feed and put the 'title, description, link, and pubDate' tags into a mysql table.

I know I can write a script (PHP or Perl) to loop through each line of the feed and parsing those tags into a proper format that can then be loaded into mysql. but I was hoping there are some built-in functions or similar easy method as RSS has become such a standard.
