Description : parse XRD and host-meta files into RDF::Trine models
Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a standard model for data
interchange on the Web.
Extensible Resource Descriptor (XRD) is an XML format for discovery of
metadata about a resource – in particular discovery of services
associated with the resource. It is commonly used in relation to
OpenID, YADIS and OAuth.
While XRD has a rather different history, it turns out it can mostly be
thought of as a serialisation format for a limited subset of RDF.
This package ignores the order of <Link> elements, as RDF is a graph
format with no concept of statements coming in an "order". The XRD spec
says that grokking the order of <Link> elements is only a SHOULD. That
said, if you're concerned about the order of <Link> elements, the
callback routines allowed by this package may be of use.
This package aims to be roughly compatible with RDF::RDFa::Parser's
