PHP Search XML by Line/Column No.


Recommended Posts

Hi Chaps,


I have been given an invalid XML file, which when run through 3rd party software, gives me the line & column numbers of the error.


Instead of opening the file and manually searching for the line/column numbers (which can take a whie, as the file is vast!), is there a way to parse the XML file and locate the error, using the line/column numbers? And maybe display/highlight the error in a browser?



1: open bad-file.xml

2: read bad-file.xml

3. go-to line 50

4. go-to column 3620

5. open in browser

6. highlight error
