DESCRIPTION

This class represents queries of various syntaxes over an RDF::Redland::Model returning a sequence of results that (currently) bind variable names to RDF::Redland::Node values.

CONSTRUCTORS

Create a new RDF::Redland::Query object for a query string QUERY-STRING with optional base URI BASE-URI IN QUERY language QUERY-LANG or query language URI QUERY-LANG-URI (both can be undef). If QUERY-LANG-URI is omitted, the current directory is used as the base URI. If QUERY-LANG-NAME is undef, the default query language "rdql" is used. If BASE-URI is omitted, no base URI is used.

METHODS

execute MODEL

Run the query against model MODEL returning a RDF::Redland::QueryResults object or undef on failure.
