Monitoring RSS feeds? Tool needed.

I'm looking for a Linux based or platform independent open source tool that monitors RSS feeds for me. It should do the following:

Take a list of RSS feeds given by the user, look them up every xxx minutes (individual, user-defined time intervals), match the entries against a list of patterns (both a global list and individual lists) and perform an action depending on the feed and the pattern matched (in particular: store them into a file, put them into a e-mail report sent every yyy hours, inform the user immediately, or simply ignore them.) The tool should run standalone and be configurable with config files and the command line alone.

This is a task so basic I thought there *must* be a tool and probably with more options than I can think of. But it seems I lacking the correct magic words for google. I have a perl script that does a the bare minimum of these tricks but I don't want to reinvent the wheel.

*cough* *cough* What's that thing below the layer of dust? An old post! By me!

So bottom line: You don't know such a tool either. It looks like I have to continue with what I have and extend it whenever something bothers me too much ...

Why not ask in more specific Linux forums? Perhaps massive forums like the Ubuntu forums or the LQ forums may give you a hand.

Since many of us here monitor certain RSS feeds its safe to assume that if such a tool existed somebody here would have heard of it. Except if it only exists in form of an obscure hack ... and there is no point in replacing my own obscure hack by somedoy else's.
