       rapper - Raptor RDF parsing and serializing utility




       rapper -o ntriples
       rapper -i rss-tag-soup -o rss-1.0 pile-of-rss.xml
       rapper --count


       The rapper utility allows parsing of RDF content by the Raptor RDF parser toolkit emitting
       the results as RDF triples in a choice of syntaxes.  The INPUT-URI can be a file name, '-'
       for standard input or if Raptor is built with a WWW retrieval library, a general URI.  The
       optional INPUT-BASE-URI is used as the document  parser  base  URI  if  present  otherwise
       defaults to the INPUT-URI.  A value of '-' means no base URI.


       rapper  uses the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes
       (`-') if supported by the getopt_long function.  Otherwise  the  short  options  are  only

       -h, --help
              Show a summary of the options.

       -i, --input FORMAT
              Set  the input FORMAT to one of 'rdfxml' (RDF/XML, default), 'ntriples' (N-Triples,
              see below), 'turtle' (Turtle, see below) or 'rss-tag-soup' (RSS Tag Soup).  The RSS
              Tag Soup parser can turn the many XML RSS formats and Atom 0.3 into RDF triples.

              The  list  of parsers depends on how libraptor(3) was built.  The list of supported
              parsers is given in the help summary given by -h.

       -I, --input-uri URI
              Set the input/parser base URI or use value '-' for no base.   The  default  is  the
              INPUT-URI argument value.

       -o, --output FORMAT
              Set  the  output  FORMAT  to  'ntriples'  (N-Triples, default), 'rdfxml' (RDF/XML),
              'rdfxml-abbrev' (RDF/XML with abbreviations) or 'rss-1.0' (RSS 1.0, also an RDF/XML

              The  list  of  serializers  depends  on  how  libraptor(3)  was built.  The list of
              supported serializers is given in the help summary given by -h.

       -O, --output-uri URI
              Set the output/serializer base URI or use value '-' for no base.   The  default  is
              the  input  base  uri, either set by the argument INPUT-BASE-URI or via options -I,
              --input-uri URI

       -c, --count
              Only count the triples and produce no other output.

       -e, --ignore-errors
              Ignore errors, do not emit the messages and try to continue parsing.

       -f, --feature FEATURE[=VALUE]
              Set a parser or serializer feature FEATURE to a value, or to 1 if VALUE is omitted,
              Use -f help to get lists of valid parser and serializer features.

              If  the  form  -f  'xmlns:prefix="uri"' is used, the prefix and namespace uri given
              will be set for serializing.  The syntax matches XML in  that  either  or  both  of
              prefix or uri can be omitted.

       -g, --guess
              Guess the parser to use from the source-URI rather than use the -i FORMAT.

       -q, --quiet
              No extra information messages.

       -r, --replace-newlines
              Replace newlines in multi-line literals with spaces.

              Print  graph  names  (URIs) as they are seen in the input.  This only has a meaning
              for parsers that support graph names such as the TRiG parser.

              Print namespaces as they are seen in the input.

       -t, --trace
              Print URIs retrieved during parsing.  Especially useful  for  monitoring  what  the
              guess and GRDDL parsers are doing.

       -w, --ignore-warnings
              Ignore warnings, do not emit the messages.

       -v, --version
              Print the raptor version and exit.

       Removed -a option that did nothing.

       Removed -m option from rapper but it was never documented here.

       Removed -n option that was long hidden.

       Removed -s option that was equivalent to -f scanForRDF

       Added -I/--input-uri  and  -O/--output-uri  to  set  the  input  and  output  (parser  and
       serializer) base URIs separately.

       Added -t/--trace to do URI traces.

       Updated to add serializer rdfxml-abbrev

       Updated potential parser and serializers and described -f for defining namespaces.

       Added -f for features.
       Added -g for guessing the parser to use.

       Removed -a, --assume since rdf:RDF is now always optional.
