Description

A query results object is only ever constructed by the internal query engine evaluating a rasqal_query with rasqal_query_execute(). It provides interface to the multiple types of result supported.

There are a large set of methods for returning all or parts of a variable binding query result including the names, values or individuals. A boolean result is straightforward to get with rasqal_query_results_get_boolean() and an RDF graph returns a sequence of raptor triples than can be easily passed to the Raptor library for serializing to a syntax.

This uses the rasqal_query_results_formatter class and the rasqal_query_results_formatter_read() method to perform the formatting.

raptor_uri describing the format to read (or NULL for default)

base_uri :

raptor_uri base URI of the input format

Returns :

non-0 on failure

rasqal_query_results_write ()

int                 rasqal_query_results_write          (raptor_iostream *iostr,

Write the query results to an iostream in a format.

This uses the rasqal_query_results_formatter class and the rasqal_query_results_formatter_write() method to perform the formatting.

Note that after calling this method, the query results will be empty and rasqal_query_results_finished() will return true (non-0)

See rasqal_world_get_query_results_format_description() for obtaining the supported format names, mime_types and URIs at run time.

iostr :

raptor_iostream to write the query to

results :

rasqal_query_results query results format

name :

format name (or NULL)

mime_type :

format mime type (or NULL)

format_uri :

raptor_uri describing the format to write (or NULL for default)

base_uri :

raptor_uri base URI of the output format

Returns :

non-0 on failure

Query result type.

RASQAL_QUERY_RESULTS_BINDINGS

variable binding

RASQAL_QUERY_RESULTS_BOOLEAN

a single boolean

RASQAL_QUERY_RESULTS_GRAPH

an RDF graph

RASQAL_QUERY_RESULTS_SYNTAX

a syntax

RASQAL_QUERY_RESULTS_UNKNOWN

unknown type

RASQAL_QUERY_RESULTS_LAST

internal

rasqal_query_results_type_label ()

const char *        rasqal_query_results_type_label     (rasqal_query_results_type type);

Get a label for a query results type

type :

rasqal_query_results_type type

Returns :

label or NULL on failure (invalid type)

rasqal_query_results_rewind ()

int                 rasqal_query_results_rewind         (rasqal_query_results *query_results);

Rewind stored query results to start

This requires rasqal_query_set_store_results() to be called before query execution.

query_results :

rasqal_query_results query_results

Returns :

non-0 if rewinding is not available when results are not stored
