Hi There,

I have a usage problem with CURL output.

I have a web services and I use CURL to get the data, However this web services set up as XML output and I want to convert it to array to use the result in the web form.

My CURL is

$ch = curl_init();
$timeout = 0; // set to zero for no timeout
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://xxx.pl');
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true); 
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS ,"cnum=$cnum");
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);

$file_contents = htmlspecialchars(curl_exec($ch));

echo $file_contents;

I have the output;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
	<role code="BNA" name="Branch Advertising ">N</role>
	<role code="BEC" name="Branch Caesarean Contact">N</role>
	<role code="BC" name="Branch Co-ordinator / Chair">N</role>
	<role code="BW" name="Branch Web Co-ordinator">N</role>

And I want to use this result in a form with check boxes..

Does anybody have an idea?

Thank You

For small xml files, SimpleXML is nice, but in php, there are quite a few ways to parse xml, as you can read here.

Thanks for the post - Problem sorted!
