I'm looking for example Php code for receiving cXML, parsing, and returning responce cXML.

I believe the xml will be received as a form post via HTTP, so I assume I need to loop through  $_POST.

Here is the link to the man pages for cXML
http://xml.cxml.org/current/cXMLUsersGuide.pdf

The XML file will probably be received as a string - it may come via $_POST, but it does not need to be processed as an array.  You can use SimpleXML to process it.
http://us2.php.net/manual/en/simplexml.examples.php

See the code snippet for an example of using SimpleXML to extract information from an XML doc.  In this example, it happens to be information from the Yahoo geocoder, but the principles are the same for any XML.

Best regards, ~Ray
// $y_buf CONTAINS THE DATA RECEIVED FROM Yahoo!
$ydata	= new SimpleXMLElement($y_buf);
$y_lat	= $ydata->Result->Latitude;
$y_lon	= $ydata->Result->Longitude;
$y_zip	= $ydata->Result->Zip;

Thanks for your comments Ray. Yes I had seen the cXML UsersGuide.pdf before, that was my starting point but I didn't find it very useful for providing example code. Unfortunately this project has stalled but I'm hoping it will restart in the New Year.
