You need an htp server - Apache's the job - and any one of many languages, a scripting language would be a good choice here and Perl has all the options.
You might be asking what is the simplest most direct and cheapest way to go about this. It seems you have a server? If not the US offer many cheap reliable hosted options. Anyway, you need Perl, and if you go for Perl you really need Linux. This pretty much applies to all the open source scripting solutions.
There must be a Perl tutorial that shows how you can take say csv file input and output as RSS. All the client does is click on the button and the cgi script will serve the correct output through the Perl invocation. Pretty simple, really. What is more complex is when your input changes, but if it is slow changing, low volume, then this can also be handled with a file input.
Blogs such as MoveableType (this is written in Perl) offer this facility built in, both to read in RSS - the reverse process of what I have outlined - and to output RSS where the site author selects the source input.

Hi Masters of XML,

I have been using the RSS mechanism in my browser and I like that

Being the tech dinosaur that I am, can anybody please tell me what do I
need to build/setup my own RSS feeder (ie server) ? Apache? Some custom

I tried some search engines but it seems to be a black-art at the moment
so that's why I'm asking on this list. The application is sticking price
information out by RSS. I'm thinking of doing it open-source if nothing
exists and the programming language would be either Perl or C#.

Any Suggestions? - Thanks..
