Consuming a Single Atom Entry

Single Atom <entry> elements are also valid by themselves. Usually the URL for an entry is the feed's URL followed by /<entryId>, such as http://atom.example.com/feed/1, using the example URL we used above.

If you read a single entry, you will still have a Zend_Feed_Atom object, but it will automatically create an "anonymous" feed to contain the entry.

Example 394. Reading a Single-Entry Atom Feed

<?php
$feed 
= new Zend_Feed_Atom('http://atom.example.com/feed/1');
echo 
'The feed has: ' $feed->count() . ' entry.';

$entry $feed->current();

Alternatively, you could instantiate the entry object directly if you know you are accessing an <entry>-only document:

Example 395. Using the Entry Object Directly for a Single-Entry Atom Feed

<?php
$entry 
= new Zend_Feed_Entry_Atom('http://atom.example.com/feed/1');
echo 
$entry->title();
