I have a long XML that I recieve from another system, but this XML has more than 30000 records (tag), and when I try to read it PHP can't do it.

If you need the XML data, I can send it to the e-mail that you send me.

Reproduce code:
$xml= simplexml_load_string(utf8_decode(trim($xmlrecieved)));
if (!$xml ){	
print 'MSG-20: Se detecto una respuesta invalida del INS '; die();

Expected result:
I need to process the data in the XML to update a database table.

Actual result:
PHP can't read it.

Post the XML file somewhere (pastebin for example) otherwise it's really hard to tell, especially if you don't receive an error message.

I found a PHP script to view the xml error:
$xml2= simplexml_load_string($xmlestilos);
if (!$xml2 ){
 $errors = libxml_get_errors();

    foreach ($errors as $error) {
        echo display_xml_error($error, $xml2).'<br>';

The error is: 
Fatal Error 9: Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding ! Bytes: 0xA0 0x50 0x52 0x4F Line: 92244 Column: 24

Thanks for your help

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

That line (PITBULL <A0>PRO) contains the A0 character, which is not valid UTF-8. Either fix your XML, or set that you have the iso-8859-1 encoding. This is not a bug.

I solved with the information that you bring me

Thank you much
