Simple SAX parser for PHP

Edit on GitHub

Yesterday, I was working on PRAjax. The UpdatePanel did not work completely as I wanted it to work: in the background, the whole page was still fetched and updated. A cleaner way would be to just fetch updated content and not the whole page.

In my search for a PHP HTML parsing class, I found a lot of libraries, but all with disadvantages: one was too big in file size, another only parsed XHTML, ... Luckily, I stumbled on SAX parser! So if you ever want to parse HTML and read out specific tags and attributes, try this one.

This is an imported post. It was imported from my old blog using an automated tool and may contain formatting errors and/or broken images.

    I don't want to say you're suffering from the Redundant RAS Syndrome, but I just realized how many abbreviations are used in you short tagline. Ignoring recursions, it says

    "Simple Simple Advanced Programming Interface for Extended Markup Language Parser For PHP Hypertext Preprocessor"

    I didn't know anything could be simple and advanced at the same time, but obviously SAX is.
