How to generate XML file dynamically using PHP?


Question

I have to generate a xml file dynamically at runtime. Please help me in generating the below XML file dynamically using PHP.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xml>
 <track>
     <path>song1.mp3</path>
     <title>Track 1 - Track Title</title>
 </track>
 <track>
     <path>song2.mp3</path>
     <title>Track 2 - Track Title</title>
 </track>
 <track>
     <path>song3.mp3</path>
     <title>Track 3 - Track Title</title>
 </track>
 <track>
     <path>song4.mp3</path>
     <title>Track 4 - Track Title</title>
 </track>
 <track>
     <path>song5.mp3</path>
     <title>Track 5 - Track Title</title>
 </track>
 <track>
     <path>song6.mp3</path>
     <title>Track 6 - Track Title</title>
 </track>
 <track>
     <path>song7.mp3</path>
     <title>Track 7 - Track Title</title>
 </track>

I'd use SimpleXMLElement.

<?php

$xml = new SimpleXMLElement('<xml/>');

for ($i = 1; $i <= 8; ++$i) {
    $track = $xml->addChild('track');
    $track->addChild('path', "song$i.mp3");
    $track->addChild('title', "Track $i - Track Title");
}

Header('Content-type: text/xml');
print($xml->asXML());
