NAME

RDF::Trine::Serializer::Notation3 - Notation 3 Serializer

SYNOPSIS

 use RDF::Trine::Serializer::Notation3;
 my $serializer = RDF::Trine::Serializer::Notation3->new();

DESCRIPTION

The RDF::Trine::Serializer::Notation3 class provides an API for serializing RDF graphs to the Notation 3 syntax.

The output of this class is not optimised for human-readability; it's a data dump. The only minor concession it makes to human readers is that it will nicely indent formulae. I do have plans to port cwm's Notation 3 output to Perl, but this is likely to be distributed separately due to licensing concerns.

Caveat scriptor: while RDF::Trine::Node::Formula understands quantification (@forAll, @forSome), RDF::Trine::Model does not. This means that @forAll and @forSome defined in the top-level graph are not-round-tripped between the Notation 3 parser and serialiser (the parser will give you warnings about this). @forAll and @forSome within formulae will work fine.

METHODS

new

Returns a new Notation 3 serializer object.

serialize_model_to_file ( $fh, $model )

Serializes the $model to Notation 3, printing the results to the supplied filehandle <$fh>.

serialize_model_to_string ( $model )

Serializes the $model to Notation 3, returning the result as a string.

serialize_iterator_to_file ( $file, $iter )

Serializes the iterator to Notation 3, printing the results to the supplied filehandle <$fh>.

serialize_iterator_to_string ( $iter )

Serializes the iterator to Notation 3, returning the result as a string.
