       RDF::Query::Node - Base class for RDF Nodes


       This document describes RDF::Query::Node version 2.918.


           Returns true if this RDF node is a variable, false otherwise.

       "compare ( $a, $b )"
           Returns -1, 0, or 1 if $a is less than, equal to, or greater than $b, respectively,
           according to the SPARQL sorting rules.

       "from_trine ( $node )"
           Returns a new RDF::Query::Node object with the same value as $node, a RDF::Trine::Node
           object. This essentially promotes $node to a node object with extra functionality
           provided by the RDF::Query package (like SPARQL-defined ordering).

       "from_attean ( $node )"
           Likewise, but from Attean.

           Returns a string serialization of the node appropriate for display on the command
           line. This method is primarily used by the "explain" method of the subclasses of


       "compare ( $node_a, $node_b )"
           Returns -1, 0, or 1 if $node_a sorts less than, equal to, or greater than $node_b in
           the defined SPARQL ordering, respectively. This function may be used as the function
           argument to "<sort">.

       "iri ( $iri )"
           Returns a RDF::Query::Node::Resource object with the given IRI value.

       "blank ( $id )"
           Returns a RDF::Query::Node::Blank object with the given identifier.

       "literal ( $value, $lang, $dt )"
           Returns a RDF::Query::Node::Literal object with the given value and optional

       "variable ( $name )"
           Returns a RDF::Query::Node::Variable object with the given variable name.
