Muti dimensional array search in xml parser

Hai,
I got xml parser to read xml file the output is like multi dimensional array ,i want to search particular id and get that matched id details from that array if the element have child to read child array also
I give one example here

<map>
<page id="home" name="Home" content="home.xml" template="home.php" bar="home_bar.xml"/>
<page id="training" name="Training" content="training.xml" template="text.php" bar="training_bar.xml">
      <page id="training-trainings" name="Trainings" content="training-trainings.xml" template="text.php" bar="training_bar.xml"/>
      <page id="training-workshops" name="Workshops" content="training-workshops.xml" template="text.php" bar="training_bar.xml"/>
</page>
</map>

If i give search id ="training"
The out put is the values in
 id="training"
 name="Training"
 content="training.xml"
 template="text.php"
 bar="training_bar.xml"

2.If i give search id ="home"
The out put is the values in
 id="home"
 name="Home"
 content="home.xml"
template="home.php"
 bar="home_bar.xml"

and child nodes values are need
 id="training"
 name="Training"
 content="training.xml"
 template="text.php"
 bar="training_bar.xml"

2nd child
 id="training-trainings"
 name="Trainings"
 content="training-trainings.xml"
 template="text.php"
 bar="training_bar.xml"
      <page id="training-workshops" name="Workshops" content="training-workshops.xml" template="text.php" bar="training_bar.xml"/>

My Xml parser out put is like this
Array
(
    [map] => Array
        (
            [page] => Array
                (
                    [0] => Array
                        (
                            [id] => home
                            [name] => Home
                            [content] => home.xml
                            [template] => home.php
                            [bar] => home_bar.xml
                            [value] =>
                        )

                    [1] => Array
                        (
                            [page] => Array
                                (
                                    [0] => Array
                                        (
                                            [id] => training-trainings
                                            [name] => Trainings
                                            [content] => training-trainings.xml
                                            [template] => text.php
                                            [bar] => training_bar.xml
                                            [value] =>
                                        )

                                    [1] => Array
                                        (
                                            [id] => training-workshops
                                            [name] => Workshops
                                            [content] => training-workshops.xml
                                            [template] => text.php
                                            [bar] => training_bar.xml
                                            [value] =>
                                        )

                                )

                            [id] => training
                            [name] => Training
                            [content] => training.xml
                            [template] => text.php
                            [bar] => training_bar.xml
                            [value] =>
                        )

                )

            [value] =>
        )

)

Lets say the array is stored in $xmlArray, then you should be able to use:

function search($xmlArray, $searchID) {
  foreach($xmlArray['map']['page'] as $key => $pageInfo) {
    if($pageInfo['id'] == $searchID) {
        return $pageInfo;
    }
  }
  return false;
}

Then call it like:

$result = search($xmlArray, 'home');

I hope this helps,
