Set up character data handler (PHP 4, PHP 5)
bool xml_set_character_data_handler ( resource parser, callback handler )

Sets the character data handler function for the XML parser parser.



handler is a string containing the name of a function that must exist when xml_parse() is called for parser.

The function named by handler must accept two parameters:

The first parameter, parser, is a reference to the XML parser calling the handler.
The second parameter, data, contains the character data as a string.

Character data handler is called for every piece of a text in the XML document. It can be called multiple times inside each fragment (e.g. for non-ASCII strings).

If a handler function is set to an empty string, or FALSE, the handler in question is disabled.


Instead of a function name, an array containing an object reference and a method name can also be supplied.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
