Have a look at this sample code :

Sure, it's quite a bit of code, but that's needed for properly parsing XML :)

at the same site infinit08 has suggested you'll find the tree1.c which has less code.

http://xmlsoft.org/examples/tree1.c

you might succeed by changing the function print_element_names to your purpose.
