Re: best xml parser for php?
There are a couple XML parsers you can use with PHP. Which one you use
is decided by your needs. The easiest to use and my favorite is
SimpleXML (http://www.php.net/simplexml ). You load an XML file and
query the structure of the file by XPath. You do, however, need PHP 5.
Another approach is the XML parser functions (http://www.php.net/xml ).
You set functions that will be called when the parser hits nodes in
the document. Getting a little more advanced, the XMLReader functions
(they require PHP 5 too), allow you to move a "cursor" around the XML
document you're parsing (http://www.php.net/xmlreader ). Good Luck!
