I'm relatively new to PHP and I've been working on a project where I need to parse XML and JSON data. However, I'm running into a bit of trouble when it comes to handling exceptions that are thrown during the parsing process. I've searched through the PHP documentation and online forums, but I haven't been able to find a clear answer on how to handle these exceptions properly.
Specifically, I'm not sure how to catch and handle exceptions that occur during XML or JSON parsing. I've heard that there are some built-in functions in PHP for parsing, like `simplexml_load_string()` and `json_decode()`, but I'm not sure how to handle any errors that might occur while using them.
I want to make sure that my code can gracefully handle any exceptions that might be thrown during the parsing process. It would be great if someone could guide me through the best practices for handling these exceptions in PHP. Are there any specific functions or methods that I should be using? And how can I catch and handle the errors in a way that won't break my application?
Any help or suggestions would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
