DomElement {
  string tagname();
}

Examples

Example 563. Getting the node name

<?php

include("example.inc");

if (!
$dom = domxml_open_mem($xmlstr)) {
   echo
"Error while parsing the document\n";
   exit;
}

$root = $dom->document_element();
echo
$root->tagname();   // chapter
echo $root->tagname;     // chapter
echo $root->node_name(); // chapter
