To install through composer include the package in your composer.json.

Run composer install or composer update to download the dependencies or you can run composer require midnite81/xml2array.

Example usage:

$xml = Xml2Array::create($someXmlString);
// or $xml = (new Xml2Array())->convert($someXmlString);

If the string is invalid then an IncorrectFormatException will be thrown, otherwise an XmlResponse class will be returned.

You can access the XmlResponse class like an array, as such:

echo $xml['result'];
