PHP Read XML Items

Hi all,

I'm loading a XML this way... using PHP

$xml = simplexml_load_file(PATH);

I can get any member by calling

$param = (string)$xml->Node->Child1;

No problem... i can read Child1, Child2, etc...

But, when i have multiple nodes with the same name...

Example

<det nItem="1">
<prod>
  <child1>HELLO</child1>
  <child2>WORLD</child2>
</prod>
</det>
<det nItem="2">
<prod>
  <child1>ITS ME</child1>
  <child2>DET AGAIN!</child2>
</prod>
</det>
<det nItem="3">
<prod>
  <child1>ITS ME</child1>
  <child2>AGAIN AGAIN!</child2>
</prod>
</det>

Ok, we have multiple "det" nodes... differentiated by "nItem" property

How to walk for every "det" nodes getting its content?

$param = (string)$xml->det?!->Child1;

Forget about "node" and "child"... my english is poor sorry...

regards,
