Hi all,

I need some help with my php script. I'm working on the script to parsing the time from my other script so I can convert the hours into format, example: the hours I parse is 1:00 AM so I can convert it to 20140427010000.

Here is the list of format for 3 channels:

20140427010000

Here is the PHP:

<?php

  $id = $id[1];

  //channels
  //$channel_test = $html->find('p[id=channels]', 10)->plaintext;

  $program_list[$count]['channels'] = $channels;
  $program_list[$count]['id'] = $id;

    echo date($DATE_FORMAT_STRING, $this_unix);
    echo "<br></br>";
    $current_state = $this_state;
  }

?>

I want to know how do you get each of those format to output them in the xml start="" and end="" like this?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<tv generator-info-name="www.mysite.com/XML">
  <programme channel='test start='20140427010000' stop='20140427013000'>

    <sub-title lang="en"></sub-title>
    <desc lang="en"> </desc>
    <category lang="en"></category>
  </programme>
  <programme channel='test start='20140427013000' stop='20140427020000'>
    <title lang="en"></title>
    <sub-title lang="en"></sub-title>
    <desc lang="en"> </desc>
    <category lang="en"></category>
  </programme>
  <programme channel='test start='20140427020000' stop='20140427023000'>
    <title lang="en"></title>
    <sub-title lang="en"></sub-title>
    <desc lang="en"> </desc>
    <category lang="en"></category>
  </programme>
  <programme channel='test start='20140427023000' stop='20140428063000'>
    <title lang="en"></title>
    <sub-title lang="en"></sub-title>
    <desc lang="en"> </desc>
    <category lang="en"></category>
  </programme>
  <programme channel='test start='20140428063000' stop='20140428070000'>
    <title lang="en"></title>
    <sub-title lang="en"></sub-title>
    <desc lang="en"> </desc>
    <category lang="en"></category>
  </programme>
  </tv>

I tried to use the values, but I will get the wrong format and the format will get mess up if I use the values.

Does anyone know how I can get the format for per channel using with the values if that is possible?

    As I said my class does that. I'm not going to start deconstructing things. Have a look at my code - the answer is there. OK, this is my last post here - good luck with it, hope you get it solved to your satisfaction. Read More

diafol, I'm sorry but I'm using this as I have found the solution. I'm parsing the time especially hours so i can convert it to format. This is the only working one that I can use for now.

In my code, I can generating the date format when I'm parsing the time, but I cannot be able to stored the values into arrays as I would get the wrong format from different arrays. I want to know how I can get the format into arrays using the values when I convert the time into format in each time I send request to url to get the time?

I'm confused. Give a sample of your input data. Are you just trying to create an XML document from another with just replacing the time format?

This isn't right...

<programme channel='test start='20140427010000' stop='20140427013000'>

Should it be...

<programme channel='test' start='20140427010000' stop='20140427013000'>

??

/?EDIT

Ok, I see you're loading a php page. Perhaps if you supplied the url we could see it.

Is this you?

Ok, here is the example of what I'm trying to achieve. I have the list of 3 urls, so I'm sending the request to each url which I will get the hours and I will convert it to format.

Here is the input:

For Url one:

7:30 AM
9:30 AM

For Url two:

9:00 AM

11:00 AM

For Url three:

9:00 AM

10:00 AM

In that way, I will convert the hours of 7:30 AM into this 20140426073000, for 9:30AM i will convert it to 20140426093000. When I send the request to each url to get the hours and converting the hours into format, I will get the three same input of format when I run through the loops.

Here is the input:

20140426073000
20140426093000

20140426073000
20140426093000

20140426073000
20140426093000

It should be looks like this:

20140426073000
20140426093000

20140426009000
20140426011000

20140426090000
20140426100000

Here is the code:

<?php
ini_set('max_execution_time', 300);
$errmsg_arr = array();
$errflag = false;
include ('simple_html_dom.php');

function getState($string)
{
  $ex = explode(" ",$string);
  return $ex[1];
}

$xml .= '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>';
$xml .= '
<tv generator-info-name="www.mysite.com/xmltv">';
$base1 = "http://www.mysite.com/get-listing.php";
$html = file_get_html($base1);      
$i = 0;
$count = 0;

foreach($html->find('p[id=links]') as $element)
{
  $program_list[ $count ] = array();
  $id_split = explode("?", $element->plaintext);
  $id_split = explode("&", $link_split[1]);
  $channels = explode("channels=",$id_split[0]);
  $channels = $channels[1];
  $id = explode("id=",$id_split[1]);
  $id = $id[1];

  //channels
  //$channel_test = $html->find('p[id=channels]', 10)->plaintext;

      $offset++;
    }
    $this_unix = strtotime($time) + (60 * 60 * 24 * $offset);
    $values[] = date($DATE_FORMAT_STRING, $this_unix);
    //echo date($DATE_FORMAT_STRING, $this_unix);
    //echo "<br></br>";

  }
  echo $values[0];
  echo "<br>";
  echo $values[1];
  echo "<br></br>";
  $current_state = $this_state;
}
?>

Do you know how I can get the different format in each time when I send the request to each url when I parse the hours to convert it to format so I would not get the wrong format from different url?

When I tried to get the format for each url that I send request, I will get the same input of format when I run through the loops.

What do you mean 'same format'? Do you mean the same time?

OK - I see from the example that the datetimes are replaying.

I don't see $count being incremented.

Anyway, I'll say it again - offsetting with seconds is a really BAD idea. It will mess up with daylight saving and possibly leap years.

Yeah, I will get the same time when I convert the time to format. Do you know how to fix it?

I don't have any problem with the offsetting. I'm getting the right daylight saving with seconds and hours. If I have a problem, I will let you know.

Do you know how to fix it?

I said...

I don't see $count being incremented.

You need $count++ in the end of your loop.

i have added the $count++ in the end of my loop, but i'm still getting the same result.

foreach($html->find('p[id=links]') as $element)
{
  $program_list[ $count ] = array();
  $id_split = explode("?", $element->plaintext);
  $id_split = explode("&", $link_split[1]);
  $channels = explode("channels=",$id_split[0]);
  $channels = $channels[1];
  $id = explode("id=",$id_split[1]);
  $id = $id[1];

  //channels
  //$channel_test = $html->find('p[id=channels]', 10)->plaintext;
  //echo $channel_test;

  $program_list[$count]['channels'] = $channels;
  $program_list[$count]['id'] = $id;

  $channels_split = explode("?", $element->plaintext);
  $channels_split = explode("&", $channels_split[1]);
  $channel_id = explode("channels=",$channels_split[0]);
  $channel_id = $channel_id[1];
  $my_id = explode("id=",$channels_split[1]);
  $my_id = $my_id[1];

  $channel = urlencode($channel_id);
  $id_1 = urlencode($my_id);
  $html_two = file_get_html("http://www.mysite.com/get-listing.php?channels=" . $channel . "&id=" . $my_id);
  $time1 = $html_two->find('span[id=time1]',0)->plaintext;
  $time2 = $html_two->find('span[id=time2]',0)->plaintext;
  $time3 = $html_two->find('span[id=time3]',0)->plaintext;
  $time4 = $html_two->find('span[id=time4]',0)->plaintext;

  $array = array(
    $time1,
    $time2,
    $time3,
    $time4,
  );

  // Save the output format
  $DATE_FORMAT_STRING = "YmdHis";

  // GET the current STAGE
  $current_state = getState($array[0]);
  $offset = 0;

  foreach($array as $time)
  {
    // Get the item state.  
    $this_state = getState($time);

    // check if we past a day? 
    if($current_state == "PM" && $this_state == "AM")
    {
      $offset++;
    }
    $this_unix = strtotime($time) + (60 * 60 * 24 * $offset);
    $values[] = date($DATE_FORMAT_STRING, $this_unix);
    //echo date($DATE_FORMAT_STRING, $this_unix);
    //echo "<br></br>";

  }
  echo $values[0];
  echo "<br>";
  echo $values[1];
  echo "<br></br>";
  $current_state = $this_state;
  $count++;
}

Here is the input:

20140426133000
20140426153000

20140426133000
20140426153000

20140426133000
20140426153000

20140426133000
20140426153000

Here is the input:

http://www.mysite.com/get-listing.php?channels=ABC+FAMILY&id=101
http://www.mysite.com/get-listing.php?channels=CBS&id=102
http://www.mysite.com/get-listing.php?channels=CNN+USA&id=103

I think I would need to create foeach url loop to send request to get the time from each url, because I will keep getting the same time for each array when I will only get the time from the first url.

However, I have tried this:

  $html_two = file_get_html("http://www.mysite.com/get-listing.php?channels=" . $channel . "&id=" . $my_id);
  $time1 = $html_two->find('span[id=time1]',0)->plaintext;
  echo $time1;
  echo "<br>";

Here is the input:

1:30 PM 
3:00 PM 
3:00 PM

So how I can get each of those time before I can convert it to format?

In the end I used DomDocument - simple_html_dom.php had memory leaks that I couldn't track down - well not without spending more time on it.

Here's a class which may help. Rough and ready though...

Thank you very much for this, but there are two things that are something wrong with the code. The "<channel id='"101 ABC FAMILY"'>";, </channel> and </tv> is missing.

The code you wrote, it have all of these programme messing up.

Here it is:

And you have forgot to include them:

header("Content-Type: text/xml");
echo $xml;
$handle = fopen("myChannel.xml", "w"); 
fwrite ($handle, $xml);
0

And you have forgot to include them:

No I didn't - that's up to you - you output it any way you want to. I'm not following a brief here, just giving you a big hand.

Anyway, there's a problem with the render when '&' is in the title, so you need to htmlentities() all text.

I sorted the programmes by time, because you noted in a previous post that the times needed to be in order. Placing it in 'channel' would have been hell of a lot easier.

Anyway, I'm going to bed. I may have a look at it tomorrow.

BTW - You make no mention of the 'channel' tag in your first post - your XML example is pretty much as I've output. I'll spend 10 minutes on it, then it's up to you to do what you want.

I'm sorry but the code is not working, it show as empty screen. And your code is a bit in a mess. However, I have tidy up and clear the code so i can read it better.

<?php
ini_set('max_execution_time', 300);
$errmsg_arr = array();
$errflag = false;

$xml .= '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>';
$xml .= '

$baseUrl = file_get_contents('http://67.23.248.61/~ytestbox/get-listing.php');

$domdoc = new DOMDocument();
$domdoc->strictErrorChecking = false;
$domdoc->recover=true;
//@$domdoc->loadHTMLFile($baseUrl);
@$domdoc->loadHTML($baseUrl);

//$links = $domdoc->getElementsByTagName('test');
//$links = $domdoc->getElementById('test');
$links = $domdoc->getElementsByTagName('a');

$data = array();
foreach($links as $link)
{  
  //echo $domdoc->saveXML($link);
  if($link->getAttribute('href'))
  {
     if(!$link->hasAttribute('id') || $link->getAttribute('id')!='streams')
     {
       $url = str_replace("rtmp://", "", $link->getAttribute('href'));
       $url = str_replace(" ", "%20", $link->getAttribute('href'));
       //echo $url;
       //echo "<br>";
       $sdoc = new DOMDocument();
       $sdoc->strictErrorChecking = false;
       $sdoc->recover=true;
       @$sdoc->loadHTMLFile($url);
       $spans = $sdoc->getElementsByTagName('span');
       //echo $spans;
       $query = parse_url($url)['query'];
       $url_split = explode("&", $query)[0];
       $channel = urldecode(explode("=",$url_split)[1]);

       $flag=0;
       foreach($spans as $span)
       {
         echo $span->nodeValue;
     }
  }
}

The code is working fine for me, I can read the code easily and I have got the input:

How do I get the time1, time2, time3, time4...etc into arrays to save the values and how I can input these time in start="" and end="" tag using the values?

I'm sorry but the code is not working, it show as empty screen.

Of course it's an empty screen - it's xml. It works perfectly for me.

And your code is a bit in a mess. However, I have tidy up and clear the code so i can read it better.

Really? OK, well done. However, by cutting out selected bits, you'll probably break it. I'm not looking at it again - I got it to work for you - if you can't get it to work, track down the error and let me know.

How do I get the time1, time2, time3, time4...etc into arrays to save the values and how I can input these time in start="" and end="" tag using the values?

My class did that. It output the values to the right place in the xml. I don't know what else you want it to do.

I have told you that I have got it working.

Here is the input:

Do you know how I can get the time because I'm using $sdoc->getElementsByTagName('span'); which it will get the time and programme title. So how I can only get the time and programme title seperate that I want to create two variables?

Ok, I have almost done it now. I have got the list of format which it show in the output:

<programme channel='101 ABC FAMILY start='20140503110000' stop=''><programme channel='101 ABC FAMILY start='20140503133000' stop='20140503110000'><programme channel='101 ABC FAMILY start='20140503153000' stop='20140503133000'><programme channel='101 ABC FAMILY start='20140503175300' stop='20140503153000'><programme channel='101 ABC FAMILY start='20140503202000' stop='20140503175300'><programme channel='101 ABC FAMILY start='20140503223000' stop='20140503202000'><programme channel='101 ABC FAMILY start='20140504013000' stop='20140503223000'>

Here is the update code:

<?php
ini_set('max_execution_time', 300);
$errmsg_arr = array();
$errflag = false;

function getState($string)
{
  $ex = explode(" ",$string);
  return $ex[1];
}

$xml .= '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>';
$xml .= '

$baseUrl = file_get_contents('http://67.23.248.61/~ytestbox/get-listing.php');

     {
       $url = str_replace("rtmp://", "", $link->getAttribute('href'));

       $query = parse_url($url)['query'];
       $channel_split = explode("&", $query)[0];
       $channel = urldecode(explode("=",$channel_split)[1]);
       $id_split = explode("&", $query)[1];
       $my_id = urldecode(explode("=",$id_split)[1]);
       $xpath = new DOMXpath($sdoc);
       //$time1 = $xpath->query("*/span[@id='time1']");
       //$time2 = $xpath->query("*/span[@id='time2']");
       //$time3 = $xpath->query("*/span[@id='time3']");
       //$time4 = $xpath->query("*/span[@id='time4']");       

       $time_arr = array();
       for ($i = 1; $i < 70; $i++)
       {
         $time_arr[] = $xpath->query("*/span[@id='time".$i."']");
       }

       // Save the output format
       $DATE_FORMAT_STRING = "YmdHis";

       // GET the current STAGE
       $current_state = getState($array[0]->nodeValue);
       $offset = 0;
       $flag = 0;

       foreach($time_arr as $time)
       {
         //echo $time->item(0)->nodeValue;

         // Get the item state.  
         //$this_state = getState($time);

         // check if we past a day? 
         if($current_state == "PM" && $this_state == "AM")
         {
           $offset++;

     }
     else
     {

}

How do you input the format in the end=""?

example: I want to input the 20140503133000 in the end="" and start="", for the next format 20140503153000 I want to input them in the end="" and start="". The same things it goes for other format.

How I can do that using with my code?

As I said my class does that. I'm not going to start deconstructing things. Have a look at my code - the answer is there. OK, this is my last post here - good luck with it, hope you get it solved to your satisfaction.
