* section: Tree
* synopsis: Navigates a tree to print element names
* purpose: Parse a file to a tree, use xmlDocGetRootElement() to
* get the root element, then walk the document and print
* all the element name in document order.
* usage: tree1 filename_or_URL
* test: tree1 test2.xml > tree1.tmp && diff tree1.tmp $(srcdir)/tree1.res

*To compile this file using gcc you can type

* print_element_names:
* @a_node: the initial xml node to consider.
* Prints the names of the all the xml elements
* that are siblings or children of a given xml node.
