Description

Variable bindings and boolean query results can be formatted into different syntaxes such as SPARQL Query Results Format or JSON. The rasqal_query_results_formatter class allows choosing a formatter for a particular syntax and writing the syntax to a raptor_iostream which allows turning the syntax into a string, writing to a file handle or other custom destination.

rasqal_new_query_results_formatter ()

rasqal_query_results_formatter * rasqal_new_query_results_formatter
                                                        (rasqal_world *world,

Constructor - create a new rasqal_query_results_formatter for an identified format.

A query results format can be found by name, mime type or URI, all of which are optional. If multiple fields are given, the first match is given that matches the name, URI, mime_type in that order. The default query results format will be used if all are format identifying fields are NULL.

See rasqal_world_get_query_results_format_description() for obtaining the supported format URIs at run time.

world :

rasqal_world object

name :

the query results format name (or NULL)

mime_type :

the query results format mime type (or NULL)

format_uri :

raptor_uri query results format uri (or NULL)

Returns :

a new rasqal_query_results_formatter object or NULL on failure

                                                         const unsigned char *identifier);

Constructor - create a new queryresults formatter for an identified format.

Uses rasqal_world_guess_query_results_format_name() to find a query results formatter by scoring recognition of the syntax by a block of characters, the content identifier or a mime type. The content identifier is typically a filename or URI or some other identifier.
