NAME

RDF::Redland::Parser - Redland RDF Syntax Parsers Class

SYNOPSIS

  use RDF::Redland;

  ...
  my $parser=new RDF::Redland::Parser("repat");

  # Return as an RDF::Redland::Stream
  my $stream=$parser->parse_as_stream($source_uri, $base_uri);
  
  # Store in an RDF::Redland::Model
  $parser->parse_into_model($source_uri, $base_uri, $model);

DESCRIPTION

This class represents parsers of various syntaxes that can deliver a RDF model either as a RDF::Redland::Stream of RDF::Redland::Statement objects or directly into an RDF::Redland::Model object.

CONSTRUCTORS

new [NAME [MIME_TYPE [URI]]]

Create a new RDF::Redland::Parser object for a syntax parser named NAME, with MIME Type MIME_TYPE and/or URI URI. Any field can be undef or omitted; if all are omitted, a parser that provides MIME Type application/rdf+xml will be requested.

METHODS

parse_as_stream SOURCE_URI BASE_URI

Parse the syntax at the RDF::Redland::URI SOURCE_URI with optional base RDF::Redland::URI BASE_URI. If the base URI is given then the content is parsed as if it was at the base URI rather than the source URI.

Returns an RDF::Redland::Stream of RDF::Redland::Statement objects or undef on failure.

parse_into_model SOURCE_URI BASE_URI MODEL

Parse the syntax at the RDF::Redland::URI SOURCE_URI with optional base RDF::Redland::URI BASE_URI into RDF::Redland::Model MODEL. If the base URI is given then the content is parsed as if it was at the base URI rather than the source URI.

parse_string_as_stream STRING BASE_URI

Parse the syntax in STRING with required base RDF::Redland::URI BASE_URI.

Returns an RDF::Redland::Stream of RDF::Redland::Statement objects or undef on failure.

parse_string_into_model STRING BASE_URI MODEL

Parse the syntax in STRING with required base RDF::Redland::URI BASE_URI into RDF::Redfland::Model MODEL.

feature URI [VALUE]

Get/set a parser feature. The feature is named via RDF::Redland::URI URI and the value is a string. If VALUE is given, the feature is set to that value, otherwise the current value is returned.
