xml_parser_create_nsCreate an XML parser with namespace support


xml_parser_create_ns ([ string $encoding [, string $separator = ":" ]] ) : resource

xml_parser_create_ns() creates a new XML parser with XML namespace support and returns a resource handle referencing it to be used by the other XML functions.



The input encoding is automatically detected, so that the encoding parameter specifies only the output encoding. In PHP 5.0.0 and 5.0.1, the default output charset is ISO-8859-1, while in PHP 5.0.2 and upper is UTF-8. The supported encodings are ISO-8859-1, UTF-8 and US-ASCII.


With a namespace aware parser tag parameters passed to the various handler functions will consist of namespace and tag name separated by the string specified in separator.

Return Values

Returns a resource handle for the new XML parser, or FALSE on failure.
