<h2>OVERVIEW</h2>

<p><a href="http://www.redland.opensource.ac.uk/rapier/">Rapier</a> is the RDF parser for
<a href="http://www.redland.opensource.ac.uk/">Redland</a>
(<b>R</b>DF <b>P</b>arser for <b>R</b>edland - R<em>a</em>P<em>ie</em>R)
and is designed to integrate with it closely, using its concepts (mostly
for URI management at present).
Rapier can also be used separate from Redland, in which case it will
use simple internal routines to perform the functions.
</p>

<p>Features</p>
<ul>
<li>An RDF/XML Parser written in C designed to integrate well with <a href="http://www.redland.opensource.ac.uk/">Redland</a></li>
<li>Can extract RDF content embedded in XML (such as XHTML)</li>
<li>Handles rdf:resource / resource attributes</li>
<li>Optionally can interpret container elements (only) as typedNode after
the <a href="http://www-uk.hpl.hp.com/people/bwm/rdf/issues/containersyntax/
">proposed interpretation</a> by Brian McBride and <a href="http://purl.org/net/dajobe/">myself</a>.</li>
<li>Parsing tracks the formal grammar productions closely - this can
be followed when debugging.</li>
<li>Uses <a href="http://expat.sourceforge.net/">expat</a> and/or <a href="http://xmlsoft.org/">libxml</a> XML parsers as available or required</li>
<li>Has hooks for new <em>parseType</em>-s and container types</li>
<li>Provides features to select options at run time.</li>
<li>(Perl and Python interfaces when used via Redland)</li>
<li>No memory leaks</li>
<li>Fast</li>
</ul>

<p><b>WARNING</b> This is alpha quality software - the APIs will
change, it is not feature complete and it needs lots of testing and
conformance checking.</p>


<h2>DOCUMENTATION</h2>

<p>There is no documentation at present, only the
<a href="rdfdump.c">rdfdump.c</a>
example program source to see how to call the parser.</p>

<p>To install see the <a href="INSTALL.html">Installation document</a></p>
