xmlTreeAddSibling

 

SYNOPSIS

xmlNode xmlTreeAddSibling(xmlNode node, xmlNode sibling)

Parameters:

  • node - the xmlNode that the sibling is being added next to

  • sibling - the xmlNode that is being added to the node's list of siblings.

Returns:

  • the sibling


DESCRIPTION
xmlTreeAddSibling() adds sibling as a sibling of node. This is the same as calling xmlTreeAddChild() using node's parent as the parent parameter.


EXAMPLE
Given the XML document

<top>
    <item>item 1</item>
    <item>item 2</item>
    <summary>
        <name>Squiggy</name>
        <detail>fuzzy</detail>
        <color>blue</color>
        <size>big</size>
    </summary>
    <other>stuff</other>
</top>

The command

<$ret = (xmlTreeAddSibling($summary, $detail))>

Would result in:

<top>
    <item>item 1</item>
    <item>item 2</item>
    <summary>
        <name>Squiggy</name>
        <color>blue</color>
        <size>big</size>
    </summary>
    <detail>fuzzy</detail>
    <other>stuff</other>
</top>


CAVEATS
If this operations results in two text nodes being siblings of each other, the second node will be merged into the first and then unlinked. Any changes made to the second text node will not be reflected in the tree.
