NAME

RDF::Simple::Parser - convert RDF string to bucket of triples

DESCRIPTION

A simple RDF/XML parser - reads a string containing RDF in XML returns a 'bucket-o-triples' (array of arrays)

SYNOPSIS

  my $uri = 'http://www.zooleika.org.uk/bio/foaf.rdf';
  my $rdf = LWP::Simple::get($uri);
  my $parser = RDF::Simple::Parser->new(base => $uri)
  my @triples = $parser->parse_rdf($rdf);
  # Returns an array of array references which are triples

METHODS

new( [ base => 'http://example.com/foo.rdf' ])

Create a new RDF::Simple::Parser object.

'base' supplies a base URI for relative URIs found in the document

'http_proxy' optionally supplies the address of an http proxy server. If this is not given, it will try to use the default environment settings.

parse_rdf($rdf)

Accepts a string which is an RDF/XML document (complete XML, with headers)

Returns an array of array references which are RDF triples.

parse_file($sFname)

Takes one argument, a string which is a fully qualified filename. Reads the contents of that file, parses it as RDF, and returns the same thing as parse_rdf().

parse_uri($uri)

Accepts a string which is a fully qualified http:// uri at which some valid RDF lives. Fetches the remote file and returns the same thing as parse_rdf().

getns

Returns a hashref of all namespaces found in the document.
