Examples

Example 1125. A libxml_get_errors() example

This example demonstrates how to build a simple libxml error handler.

<?php

libxml_use_internal_errors
(true);

$xmlstr = <<< XML
<?xml version='1.0' standalone='yes'?>
<movies>
<movie>
 <titles>PHP: Behind the Parser</title>
</movie>
</movies>
XML;

$doc = simplexml_load_string($xmlstr);
$xml = explode("\n", $xmlstr);

if (!
$doc) {
   
$errors = libxml_get_errors();

   foreach (
$errors as $error) {
       echo
display_xml_error($error, $xml);
   }

   
libxml_clear_errors();
}


function
display_xml_error($error, $xml)
{
   
$return  = $xml[$error->line - 1] . "\n";
   
$return .= str_repeat('-', $error->column) . "^\n";

   switch (
$error->level) {
       case
LIBXML_ERR_WARNING:
           
$return .= "Warning $error->code: ";
           break;
        case
LIBXML_ERR_ERROR:
           
$return .= "Error $error->code: ";
           break;
       case
LIBXML_ERR_FATAL:
           
$return .= "Fatal Error $error->code: ";
           break;
   }

   
$return .= trim($error->message) .
             
"\n  Line: $error->line" .
             
"\n  Column: $error->column";

   if (
$error->file) {
       
$return .= "\n  File: $error->file";
   }

   return
"$return\n\n--------------------------------------------\n\n";
}

?>

The above example will output:

<titles>PHP: Behind the Parser</title>
^
Fatal Error 76: Opening and ending tag mismatch: titles line 4 and title
 Line: 4
 Column: 0
