NAME

OpenGuides::RDF::Reader - Parse and return OpenGuides metadata from RDF

SYNOPSIS

  use OpenGuides::RDF::Reader;
  use WWW::Mechanize;
  ...
  my $agent = WWW::Mechanize->new;
  $agent->get("http://fooville.openguides.org/?id=Red_Lion;format=rdf");
  my %metadata = parse_rdf($agent->content);

DESCRIPTION

The OpenGuides software deliberately exposes data collected on the town wiki sites, making it available to other websites as RDF / XML. This functionality is provided by the module OpenGuides::RDF supplied in the OpenGuides distribution.

What OpenGuides::RDF::Reader does is the reverse process, i.e. take XML RDF data and turn it back into a hash with keys comprising the metadata fields in OpenGuides. The main use of this is for guide replication.

parse_rdf

This exported subroutine takes a string containing RDF and returns a list of metadata key value pairs.
