    XML is a form of Flat file....

    Please say it is not but it is you have one file with all data in what the difference is is XML has functions so you not reading the file until you find you answer php can just get if from its pre_built functions.

    E.G:
    [test.ini]
    PHP Code:
    [cat]
    var=
    value 
    To read this you have to read untill you find your var=(.*?)
    Then you can stop
    [test.xml]
    PHP Code:
    <XML HEADER>
    <
    cat>
     <var>
    Value</var>
    </
    cat
    This you can ask php to get child node var from cat and it will return with the value but i think you always best with a DB engine like a form of SQL E.G MySQL as this has a system that can fetch it, i think there are some engines changing XML to work like SQL with programs
    Working towards a Internet where we don't have website just browser applications Kill the Hyper-link and say hello to 3D Games in the browser :)

    Use this:
    http://chaozz.nl/software/chaozzdb/

    And then you can use a regular shopping cart program...

    http://www.hotscripts.com/category/p...hopping-carts/

    It will have a list of all the shopping cart scripts....

    Look for the ones that say free.

    This Shopping cart script is pretty popular:

    Hope this helps!
    Good Luck!
