Triples Source

Triples Source — Source of matches to a triple pattern.


A factory that provides the raw triple matches for a triple pattern against some RDF graph. The rasqal_triples_source_factory must create use a new rasqal_triples_source that can be used to initialise and build a rasqal_triples_match for some rasqal_triple (subject, predicate, object, origin URI).



typedef struct {
  /* triple (subject, predicate, object) and origin */
  rasqal_variable* bindings[4];

  rasqal_triples_match *triples_match;

  void *context;

  rasqal_triple_parts parts;

  int is_exact;

  int executed;
} rasqal_triple_meta;

Metadata for triple pattern matching for one triple pattern.

rasqal_variable *bindings[4];

Variable bindings for this triple+origin to set.

rasqal_triples_match *triples_match;

The matcher that is setting these bindings.

void *context;

Context data used by the matcher.

rasqal_triple_parts parts;

is_end ()

Check for end of triple match - return non-0 if is end.

finish ()

Finish triples match and destroy any allocated memory.

} rasqal_triples_source_factory;

A factory that initialises rasqal_triples_source structures to returning matches to a triple pattern across the dataset formed from the data graphs recorded in the query object.

int version;

API factory version from 1 to 3

void *user_data;

User data for triples_source_factory.

size_t user_data_size;

Size of user_data for new_triples_source.

new_triples_source ()

Create a new triples source - returns non-zero on failure < 0 is a 'no rdf data error', > 0 is an unspecified error. Error messages are generated by rasqal internally. (V1)

init_triples_source ()

Initialise a new triples source V2 for a particular source URI/base URI and syntax. Returns non-zero on failure with errors reported via the handler callback by the implementation. (V2)

init_triples_source2 ()

Initialise a new triples source V3 for a particular source URI/base URI and syntax and given data graphs. Returns non-zero on failure with errors reported via the handler callback by the implementation. If bit 0 of flags is 1, enforce RAPTOR_FEATURE_NO_NET (V3)

Register a factory to generate triple sources.

Registers the factory that returns triples sources. Note that there is only one of these per runtime.

The rasqal_triples_source_factory factory method new_triples_source is called with the user data for some query and rasqal_triples_source.

world :

rasqal_world object

register_fn :

registration function

user_data :

user data for registration

Returns :

non-zero on failure
