does php support xml out of the box?

when i run the phpinfo() command i see that xml support is "active" but i didn't set the --with-xml parameter when i compiled php. does this mean it's supported natively?


not as I recall....are you sure you didn't compile with those options? I think manual only says something about expat lib, but not xml...

so then what does it mean when phpinfo() says XML is active?


Does it just say that or does it actually work? Dumb question, but it might be a glitch in phpinfo(), who knows.

If you're using PHP as an Apache module, it uses the expat library that comes with Apache, maybe it's that?
