I have been working on a PHP project recently and I came across a situation where I need to check if an element has children or not. I have been trying to find a built-in function in PHP that can help me achieve this but I haven't had much luck so far.
I have read about the DOM functions in PHP, but I couldn't find any specific function like "hasChildren()" that could directly tell me if an element has any children nodes.
I know I can manually iterate through the child nodes using a loop and check if there are any, but I was wondering if there is a simpler and more efficient way to achieve this.
If any of you have any experience or knowledge about this, I would greatly appreciate your input. Maybe there is a function or method that I have overlooked, or perhaps there is a workaround that can accomplish the same result.
Any help or guidance would be highly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
