We are looking to build a site that compares sportsbook odds. We receive XML feeds from these sportsbooks but they each use a different format in their XML feed.
We need a PHP script that can be EASILY configured to parse various XML feeds with different structures. The idea is to be able to quickly add new sportsbooks to our database of information with an interoperable and easily configurable XML parsing script.
The script needs to be able to handle all major American sports (football, basketball, baseball, hockey).
This is a rather complicated project as the PHP script needs to be able to handle a great variety of XML formats, some of which can be frustrating and difficult to parse.
We would like to be able to use this script in the future to easily add or update our XML parsing abilities.
