9. RDF and Perl, PHP, and Python > 9.1. RDF/XML and Perl

RDF/XML and Perl

There would seem to be a natural fit between Perl, a language known for its parsing and pattern-matching capability, and RDF. When I went searching for Perl APIs, I was surprised to find that several I discovered had not been updated for months (sometimes years) or were seriously incomplete. However, I was able to find a couple of Perl APIs that are active, are being supported, and provide much of the functionality necessary for working with the RDF data model through RDF/XML.

Tip

The W3C had a Perl library that included an RDF Parser, perllib, found at http://www.w3.org/1999/02/26-modules/. However, there hasn’t been a solid release of the Perl modules associated with it in quite some time, and the only activity that’s occurred in relation to it is buried in the CVS files for the API. Because there hasn’t been a release of the API in some time, I decided not to include it in this chapter.
