Description

Provides class to create serializers to turn RDF graphs into syntax in either files or strings. Serializer features can be set, which are passed down to Raptor and errors and warnings that are returned can be retrieved by callbacks.

Details

librdf_serializer

typedef struct librdf_serializer_s librdf_serializer;

Redland serializer class.


librdf_serializer_factory

typedef struct librdf_serializer_factory_s librdf_serializer_factory;

Redland serializer factory class.
