I am outlining chapter 3 of PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice. What an incredible book.

PHP Storm is giving me the error of undefined constant simple xml and undefined function load file.

I want to be able to open this file in a browser (I'm doing one file a chapter with comments for notes). I haven't worked with XML and don't understand what is going on here.

Would someone please explain what is going on, but more importantly how to get it to load in a browser? Should I comment that line out?
