To add to what the others say, you need to sit down and work out exactly what you expect to generate form your XML data.
The reason being that XML is a text-based hierarchically structured data format, and it can be all in a single line: newlines (or any other whitespace) are not required by the XML specification, and "individual items" in XML can span multiple lines of text without any change in the data it encapsulates or an entire array of objects can occupy a single line of text - that's problem number one!

The second problem is that the data contained in the XML itself doesn't "lend itself" to a flat file output - which is what an unformatted text file contains.
If you look at a "basic XML" file like this example: W3Schools CD Catalog[^] you can see that what it contains isn't readily useful as a text file unless you actually convert that to a formatted file of some form. Just stripp[ing out the XML stuff doesN't give you any useful data:

(I manually added the line breaks to prevent that showing as a single very long line!)

So you need to work out what is in the XML that you are interested in, and how you will "present" that in your resulting file - otherwise it's just a waste of your time and effort!
