May 08, 2006 @ 07:04:49

WeberDev.com has this new article today, an introduction to some PHP5 functionality that doesn't seem to get used so much - the SimpleXML functions. The tutorial provides an introduction to the topic, and includes several code examples to get you started.

While PHP has included support for the two standard methods of parsing (read: making sense of) XML - SAX and DOM - since version 4.0, the complexity and inherent geekiness of these methods often turned off all but the most dedicated XML developers.
