RDF::SN - Short names for URIs with prefixes from


  use RDF::SN;
  $abbrev = RDF::SN->new('20230619');
  $abbrev->qname(''); # rdfs:type


This module supports abbreviating URIs as short names (aka qualified names), so its the counterpart of RDF::NS.

new( [ $ns ] )

Create a lookup hash from a mapping hash of namespace URIs to prefixes (RDF::NS). If multiple prefixes exist, the shortest is used. If multiple prefixes with same length exist, the first in alphabetical order is used.

qname( $uri )

Returns a prefix and local name (as list in list context, concatenated by : in scalar context) if the URI can be abbreviated with given namespaces.
