Format the librdf_statement as a string.

Formats the statement as a newly allocate string that must be freed by the caller.

Deprecated: Use librdf_statement_write() to write to raptor_iostream which can be made to write to a string. Use a librdf_serializer to write proper syntax formats.

statement :

the statement

Returns :

the string or NULL on failure.

librdf_statement_print ()

void                librdf_statement_print              (librdf_statement *statement,

the statement

fh :

file handle

Match a statement against a 'partial' statement.

A partial statement is where some parts of the statement - subject, predicate or object can be empty (NULL). Empty parts match against any value, parts with values must match exactly. Node matching is done via librdf_node_equals()

librdf_statement_decode ()

size_t              librdf_statement_decode             (librdf_statement *statement,
                                                         unsigned char *buffer,
                                                         size_t length);

Decodes a statement from a buffer. (ALWAYS FAILS)

Used to decode the serialised statement as created by librdf_statement_encode() from the given buffer.

Deprecated: Replaced by librdf_statement_decode2() which works.

statement :

the statement to deserialise into

buffer :

the buffer to use

length :

buffer size

Returns :

0 signifying failure

librdf_statement_decode2 ()

size_t              librdf_statement_decode2            (librdf_world *world,
                                                         librdf_statement *statement,

                                                         size_t length);

Decodes a statement + context node from a buffer.

Decodes the serialised statement (as created by librdf_statement_encode() ) from the given buffer. If a context node is found and context_node is not NULL, a pointer to the new librdf_node is stored in *context_node.

world :

redland world

statement :

the statement to deserialise into

context_node :

pointer to librdf_node context_node to deserialise into

buffer :

the buffer to use

length :

buffer size

Returns :

number of bytes used or 0 on failure (bad encoding, allocation failure)

librdf_statement_decode_parts ()

size_t              librdf_statement_decode_parts       (librdf_statement *statement,

librdf_statement_write ()

int                 librdf_statement_write              (librdf_statement *statement,
                                                         raptor_iostream *iostr);

Write the statement to an iostream

This method is for debugging and the format of the output should not be relied on.

statement :

the statement

iostr :

raptor iostream to write to

Returns :

non-0 on failure
