libxml in PHP 5 - PHP Development

Hey Folks: I'm starting to use PHP 5 on my development machine. The primary XML pr is changing from expat to libxml. I was curious about the change, so sought doentation of the new libxml stuff on the PHP site but haven't been able to find any. Perhaps someone can steer me toward such doentation and/or answer a question. I was thinking that the new XML pr would necessitate scripts use different function calls.

    Default libxml in PHP 5

    Hey Folks:

    I'm starting to use PHP 5 on my development machine. The primary XML
    pr is changing from expat to libxml. I was curious about the change,
    so sought doentation of the new libxml stuff on the PHP site but
    haven't been able to find any.

    Perhaps someone can steer me toward such doentation and/or answer a
    question.

    I was thinking that the new XML pr would necessitate scripts use
    different function calls. Or will the main functions and behavior remain
    the same, but only the library be changed?

    If the functions will indeed be different, is there some place to find
    docs about these new procedures? They don't have to be great, just give
    me an idea of how to start hacking something simple.

    Thanks,

    --Dan

    The plan is to make the libxml switch seamless and not require any
    changes in your XML code.

    PHP 5 will also have the SimpleXML extension. I believe the C code in
    the CVS is also the doentation. (Source code: The ultimate
    doentation.)

    more than I.
