xml_parse - Start parsing an XML document
Code Examples

xml_parse( XMLParser$parser, string$data, [bool$is_final = false] ): int

xml_parse parses an XML document. The handlers for the configured events are called as many times as necessary.



A reference to the XML parser to use.


Chunk of data to parse. A document may be parsed piece-wise by calling xml_parse several times with new data, as long as the is_final parameter is set and true when the last data is parsed.


If set and true, data is the last piece of data sent in this parse.

Return Values

Returns 1 on success or 0 on failure.

For unsuccessful parses, error information can be retrieved with xml_get_error_code, xml_error_string, xml_get_current_line_number, xml_get_current_column_number and xml_get_current_byte_index.


Some errors (such as entity errors) are reported at the end of the data, thus only if is_final is set and true.


Version Description
8.0.0 parser expects an XMLParser instance now; previously, a resource was expected.
