Comment This book is useless... (Score 1) 131

The book is 99% simpleXML, a useless bloated library extension of php5, tutorial. there is mention of sax and dom but very very brief, you can easily find better references at php.net and they are the real world tools for php/xml.

I was disappointed to find that the author barely used php5 dom functions to support the CMS (if you can call it that) that you are being tutored along because that is definitely one of php5's strong points. i was looking for a book with function references and some code examples, they were there, however, only for the simpleXML class.

in reality if you wanna build a php/xml cms, you're going to need to use php4.4+ and either write or use one of the many classes out there for actually parsing/writing xml.
