Here is a skeleton of a parser class, note the uses of '&' to avoid
generating copies of the object:

class xml_parser {
        var $xml_parser;
// constructor
        function xml_parser() {
          $this->xml_parser = xml_parser_create();
        function character_data($parser, $data) {

        function start_element($parser, $name, $attrs) {
        function end_element($parser, $name) {

        function parse() {
$xml =& new xml_parser();
