Raptor Overview
I. Raptor Tutorial
Initialising and Finishing using the Library
Listing built-in functionality
Parsing syntaxes to RDF Triples
Create the Parser object
Parser features
Set RDF triple callback handler
Set fatal error, error and warning handlers
Set the identifier creator handler
Set namespace declared handler
Set the parsing strictness
Provide syntax content to parse
Parse the content from a URI (raptor_parse_uri())
Parse the content of a URI using an existing WWW connection (raptor_parse_uri_with_connection())
Parse the content of a C FILE* (raptor_parse_file_stream())
Parse the content of a file URI (raptor_parse_file())
Parse chunks of syntax content provided by the application (raptor_start_parse() and raptor_parse_chunk())
Restrict parser network access
Filtering parser network requests with feature RAPTOR_FEATURE_NO_NET
Filtering parser network requests with raptor_www_set_uri_filter()
