xml_parser_create -- Create an XML parser

Description

resource xml_parser_create ( [string encoding] )

xml_parser_create() creates a new XML parser and returns a resource handle referencing it to be used by the other XML functions.

The optional encoding specifies the character encoding for the input/output in PHP 4. Starting from PHP 5, the input encoding is automatically detected, so that the encoding parameter specifies only the output encoding. In PHP 4, the default output encoding is the same as the input charset. If empty string is passed, the parser attempts to identify which encoding the document is encoded in by looking at the heading 3 or 4 bytes. In PHP 5.0.0 and 5.0.1, the default output charset is ISO-8859-1, while in PHP 5.0.2 and upper is UTF-8. The supported encodings are ISO-8859-1, UTF-8 and US-ASCII.
