Here are a few resources I found interesting/useful. They are totally DOM-centric ... although the PHP DOM interface is highly non-standard. http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.domxml.php The "user contributed notes" are the most useful part of the manual! http://www.devarticles.com/art/1/44 http://www.devshed.com/Server_Side/XML/XMLwithPHP/XMLwithPHP1/page1.html http://www.devshed.com/Server_Side/XML/XMLwithPHP/XMLwithPHP2/page1.html Here's a trivial php program that takes a POST of an HTML form (the names of the fields are automatically represented as PHP variables), opens an RSS-like file identified by the $file value, and puts the form information in a new "item" element at the bottom of the first "channel" element, then rewrites the file and echoes its contents to the browser. <?php header ("content-type: text/xml"); $file = "http://localhost/log/" . $arch . ".xml"; $doc = xmldocfile($file); $ctx=xpath_new_context($doc); $c=xpath_eval($ctx,"//channel"); $r = $c->nodeset; $i = $r->new_child("item"); $i->new_child("title", $head); $i->new_child("link", $link); $i->new_child("description", $comment); $out = domxml_dumpmem($doc); $file = $arch . ".xml"; $f = fopen($file, 'w'); fputs($f, $out); fclose($f); echo $out; ?> I am a complete PHP novice, so any suggestions to do things in a more sensible way would be appreciated.
