I need to update the country list of my website and I want to automate the process. Country list can be found here
I tried it this way –
http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_xml_parser_expat.asp (PHP XML Expat Parser)
However, this didn’t seem to work well as I was confused where to actually ‘get’ the data and print it to my own array for later use.
Now I want to try it using XML DOM
Just want to check with everyone, if I had a simple XML file to read, that contained a country code and country name as follows:
< Entry> < Country_name>AFGHANISTAN</ Country_name> < Code_element>AF</ Code_element> </Entry>
I want to read this file (DOM method), and then feed the data into a separate file/array of mine that will be accessed by my website. What PHP xml functions would YOU use/recommend to do this simple task?
Any help in this regards is appreciated.
