libxml2 and parsing


I'm trying to use libxml2 (with C) to extract some elements from an xml doc
which is in memory.

I've managed to parse the memory buffer ok into an xmlDocPtr but can't
figure out the functions I should be using to extract a repeated set of

For example:

<person name="fred">123</person><person name="bert">345</person>...<person

How would I use a loop to pickup each person element in turn, and then
extract the name attribute, and the numeric value of the element?

Thanks in advance.
