For Find Files there's no ready made compound, but it's fairly simple to use.

You simply specify a folder and a file mask, for example:

     

By default you'll have the full list of the *.txt files in the folder.

But if you set Line Count to 1 then via Start Line Index you can control which filename you get from the list:

    

With this single filename you can drive a Text File module to get the content of the selected file:

Regarding the RSS.

In one of the next releases we will provide a HTTP Request module. Using that you'll be able to fetch an RSS feed manually or periodically.

The downloaded RSS itself is an XML content which can be handled via the XML Text module. We'll provide some examples how to access RSS data from that.

Note that you'll only able to handle the plain text content.
RSS files often contains HTML content as well. You'll have the HTML text itself, but you won't be able to display it directly since Aximmetry do not have a built-in HTML viewer.
