How receieve XML output from stored procedure into PHP variable

I am a recovering Microsoft ASP-SQL Server developer migrating to PHP/mySQL. I'm trying to accomplish the same thing that is easily done in ASP using a stream object to capture the XML output from a stored procedure. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction on how this type of thing can be done in PHP/mySQL. Note: I don't want to create the XML in PHP - I want to write it via the stored procedure.

In ASP, I would do something like this:

Set cmd = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
cmd.ActiveConnection = gameConn_STRING

Set objStream = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")

cmd.CommandText = "sp_getXML"
cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc


cmd.Properties("Output Stream").Value = objStream
cmd.Execute , , adExecuteStream

objStream.Position = 0

objStream.Charset = "utf-8"

strXML = objStream.ReadText(adReadAll)

A simple example of what sp_getXML (in MS SQL Server) could do is this:

SELECT '<xmlDocument><dataElement>Here is my data</dataElement></xmlDocument>'


When the ASP page calls the stored procedure, the XML document ends up being assigned to the variable strXML and then written to the outputted page.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how this can be accomplished in mySQL and PHP.

Thank you for your help.
