PHP and XML

hi,
how do i use PHP to get information out of XML files, i want to take each section and put it into a php variable for example

$to = "james";
$from = "glen";
$heading = "reminder";
$body = "hello";

the information is taken from:

<email>
<to>james</to>
<from>glen</from>
<heading>Reminder</heading>
<body>hello</body>
</email>

thanks

try use DOMDocument

$document = new DOMDocument();
$document->load('./yourfile.xml');
$el=$document->getElementsByTagName("email");


$to =$el->item(0)->getElementsByTagName("to")->item(0)->nodeValue;
$from =$el->item(0)->getElementsByTagName("from")->item(0)->nodeValue;
$heading = $el->item(0)->getElementsByTagName("heading")->item(0)->nodeValue;
$body = $el->item(0)->getElementsByTagName("body")->item(0)->nodeValue;

look at this: http://www.php.net/dom

$dom=domxml_open_file(yourfile);
$el=get_elements_by_tagname("email");

$to =$el[0]->getElementsByTagName("to")[0]->nodeValue;
$from =$el[0]->getElementsByTagName("from")[0]->nodeValue;
$heading = $el[0]->getElementsByTagName("heading")[0]->nodeValue;
$body = $el[0]>getElementsByTagName("body")[0]->nodeValue;
