Where is the Feeds log?
Folks,

I listen to about 30 radio podcasts per week. I am subscribed to all of
these RSS feeds, and when I refresh the list, the new feeds are highlighted
in bold. Clearly, Internet Explorer keeps a log somewhere of what feeds
have been read, and when I refresh the list, it compares the current feeds
against previously read ones so it can figure out which are unread. Well, I
suppose it works something like that.

I'm writing a little application that needs to detect the unread feeds, and
download them automatically.

Any suggestions on how to detect unread feeds programatically? Does anybody
know where the log file is?

Thanks,

MikeC

Then you should probably be posting in the MSDN forum for IE Web Development
instead of here.

According to the Help. E.g. right-click Properties on a feed, About
feeds

Q: Can other programs display my subsubscribed feeds?
A: Yes, Internet Explorer provides the Common Feed List to other
programs.

So searching MSDN Library for "Common Feed List" would probably be what I
would do first.

If that doesn't expose the implementation I would resort to tracing its use
(or WLMail's use of feeds) with ProcMon.
