// iTunes XML Playlist Parser Class

//
// How to Use:
// First, activate the parser by calling the initial function (ie. $playlist_parser->parser($playlist_file); where $playlist_file
// is the path to your xml file. After this, the information is ready. First off, the playlist title is stored in a variable 
// called $playlist_title (ie. $playlist_parser->playlist_title). There is also an array called $playlist which is structured as follows:
// $playlist[artist name][increment counter][album/title/genre/time]
// if you have any questions, please e-mail me
//
class playlist_parser
{	var $xml_parser;
	var $xml_current;
	var $xml_key;
	var $xml_cursong;
	var $xml_curartist;
	var $title_key;
	var $counter=1;
	var $playlist_title;
	var $playlist=array();
	function xml_start($xml_parser,$xml_tag,$xml_attributes)
	{	$this->xml_current.="/~".$xml_tag;
	}
	function xml_end($xml_parser,$xml_tag)
	{	$xml_caret_pos=strrpos($this->xml_current,"/~");
		$this->xml_current=substr($this->xml_current,0,$xml_caret_pos);
	}
	function xml_data($xml_parser,$xml_data)
	{	if($this->xml_current=="/~PLIST/~DICT/~DICT/~DICT/~KEY"&&$xml_data=="Track ID")
		{	$this->counter++;
		}
		switch($this->xml_current)
