It can take a string XML as input or an object of type DOMDocument.

The usage is pretty simple. You have to include the class file in your code and call the following function.

$array = XML2Array::createArray($xml);
print_r($array);

Example

The Following XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<movies type="documentary">
  <movie>
    <title>PHP: Behind the Parser</title>
    <characters>
      <character>
        <name>Ms. Coder</name>
        <actor>Onlivia Actora</actor>
      </character>
      <character>
        <name>Mr. Coder</name>
        <actor>El ActÓr</actor>
      </character>
    </characters>
    <plot><![CDATA[So, this language. It's like, a programming language. Or is it a scripting language? 
All is revealed in this thrilling horror spoof of a documentary.]]></plot>
    <great-lines>
      <line>PHP solves all my web problems</line>
    </great-lines>
    <rating type="thumbs">7</rating>
    <rating type="stars">5</rating>
  </movie>
</movies>

                        'actor' => 'El ActÓr',
                    ),
                ),
            ),
            'plot' => array (
