Examples

Example 1. DOMDocument->xinclude() example

<?php

$xml
= <<<EOD
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<chapter xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude">
<title>Books of the other guy..</title>
<para>
  <xi:include href="book.xml">
   <xi:fallback>
    <error>xinclude: book.xml not found</error>
   </xi:fallback>
  </xi:include>
</para>
</chapter>
EOD;

$dom = new DOMDocument;

// let's have a nice output
$dom->preserveWhiteSpace = false;
$dom->formatOutput = true;

// load the XML string defined above
$dom->loadXML($xml);

// substitute xincludes
$dom->xinclude();

echo
$dom->saveXML();

?>

The above example will output something similar to:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<chapter xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude">
  <title>Books of the other guy..</title>
