I have the following xml file:
<Table xmlns:myUtils="uniSyncDc.Logic">
  <statement>
    <update>UPDATE</update>
    <insert>INSERT INTO </insert>
    <delete />
  </statement>
...
60000 times  </statement>  <statement>
....
</Table>
I am reading this file in the following way
$docStatementsFile = new DOMDocument('1.0', 'utf-8');
            $docStatementsFile->load($fileNameWithPath);
            $statementss = $docStatementsFile->getElementsByTagName( "statement");
            foreach($statementss as $statement)
            {
                  $deletes = $statement->getElementsByTagName( CONSTANTS::DELETE);
                  $delete = utf8_decode($deletes->item(0)->nodeValue);
               $Updates = $statement->getElementsByTagName( CONSTANTS::UPDATE);
                  $update =  utf8_decode($Updates->item(0)->nodeValue);
               $insertss = $statement->getElementsByTagName( CONSTANTS::INSERT );
                  $insert = utf8_decode($insertss->item(0)->nodeValue);
in this way I am loading all the 60000 entrys in memory and I dont want this because I am using a lot of memory.
How can I read this xml file sequentially, like I read a statement from the file nd execute it, I read the next statement and execute it, and so on.
