p5.js | loadXML() Function
The loadXML() function is used to read the contents of a file or URL and return it as a XML object. The file must be present in the sketch directory to be accessed. This method can be used to support file sizes up to 64MB.
This function is asynchronous, therefore it is recommended to be called in the preload() function to ensure that the function is executed before the other functions.
