read xml file using php

most of the time we need to fetch records from xml file, so we use a php function
The simplexml_load_file() function which helps to converts the specified XML file into
a SimpleXMLElement object.


here we have xml file which is named as sitemap.xml, we fetch  all dates from sitemap using simplexml_load_file() function.

in fetch.php file we fetch all records from sitemap.xml file.

$xml = simple_load_file('sitemap.xml');
foreach($xml->children() as $data)
echo $data->to."<br>";
echo $data->from."<br>";
echo $data->heading."<br>";
echo $data->body."<br>";
