Re: Xml parser
[Oleg Tkachenko] What about a xml parser written in php itself (PHP XML Parser)? :) The biggest parsers list I know is at http://www.xmlsoftware.com/parsers/, it's about 50 xml parsers are listed there! --- > I have friend over on the www.freelancers.net who asked this question > > "I need to parse some basic XML (generated by a QuickTime movie) in PHP. > Expat is far too big & complicated - I want to pass it a string of XML > and get a nested structure back that I can pick values from.

Here's a pretty complete set for xml parsing: http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~cameron/REX.html I seem to remember from a few years ago that there might be some problem with attributes using it, but easily fixed, I think. If you can run java, there's nanoXML (all of about 6k, I understand) - it's pretty complete. Cheers, Tom P XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
