Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding PHP, part of ActionScript 3.0: Working with XML.
In this chapter we are going to be working with PHP.…Before we start working with PHP it's really important to talk about why we are going to use PHP…and what PHP is going to do to help us in working with XML.…If you are following along you can open php.swf in the Chapter 5 folder.…You can use any key on your keyboard to advance through your slides.…So let's take a look at our situation right now with XML.…A Swift file can only read data from an XML file, a swift file cannot by itself write data to an XML file.…Further a Swift file cannot grab data from a remote server.…
This is because that's blocked by security reasons unless the remote server has a file giving the swift file…on your server permission to access data on that remote server.…If you want to find out more about that you can look up across domain policy file.…You can either look that up in Flash Help or do web search.…So at this point if we want to grab remote XML data say for example an RSS feed we have to go to a remote site ourselves,…
