RDF::Trine::Parser::Turtle - Turtle RDF Parser


This document describes RDF::Trine::Parser::Turtle version 1.019


 use RDF::Trine::Parser;
 my $parser     = RDF::Trine::Parser->new( 'turtle' );
 $parser->parse_into_model( $base_uri, $data, $model );


This module implements a parser for the Turtle RDF format.


Beyond the methods documented below, this class inherits methods from the RDF::Trine::Parser class.

new ( [ namespaces => $map ] )

Returns a new Turtle parser.

parse ( $base_uri, $rdf, \&handler )

Parses the bytes in $data, using the given $base_uri. Calls the triple method for each RDF triple parsed. This method does nothing by default, but can be set by using one of the default parse_* methods.

parse_file ( $base_uri, $fh, $handler )

Parses all data read from the filehandle or file $fh, using the given $base_uri. If $fh is a filename, this method can guess the associated parse. For each RDF statement parses $handler is called.

parse_node ( $string, $base, [ token => \$token ] )

Returns the RDF::Trine::Node object corresponding to the node whose N-Triples serialization is found at the beginning of $string. If a reference to $token is given, it is dereferenced and set to the RDF::Trine::Parser::Turtle::Token tokenizer object, allowing access to information such as the token's position in the input string.
