Forgive my ignorance of explanation but I hope someone can help me please.

First, thank you to the writer for such a free and useful script. Thank You.

I've been using rss2html successfully for a while and suddenly - due to the folks I grab some of my feeds from - their code prevented my rss2html.php from pulling rss!

after some magic at the back end here's the final response I got from my rss feeders tech support.

"..The code is sending the user agent name as:
ini_set("user_agent", "FeedForAll rss2html scripts v3");

for now I have requested to accept this user agent so your pages will work.
But you need to modify this code to send the real user agent name of the user who is visiting the page. Or your pages might stopped working again in the future......"

Can I manually change this line of the script/code to have it reflect the "Real User Agent" or is this a change that can be made at all? Has anyone come across this before? what is my RSS "host" trying to achieve here?

Thank you for any help and for such a neat and useful utility.
