Crazy xpath php error!

Hai folks,

This crazy error driving me nuts.
i can’t supply a eliment position in a variable. example : wp:listing[$x] (the $x value actually here is 1). But this does not work.

The error was : Warning: SimpleXMLElement::xpath() [simplexmlelement.xpath]: xmlXPathEval: 1 object left on the stack in /homepages/…

but if i specify the position manually it works : example wp:listing[1]

what could be wrong? if i specify a value manually it works correctly. but if i supply the same value using a variaible, then the above error occours. pls help!

for ($x=1;$x<=$totfound;$x++){
 	$result = $xml->xpath('//[B]wp:listing[$x][/B]/wp:people/wp:person[@wp:rank="secondary"]/wp:firstname');
    if ((count($result))>0){
	   foreach ($result as $key => $value){

To evaluate $x in the XPath string, the string needs to be wrapped in double quotes, you have single. :wink:
