NAME

       URI::Namespace - A namespace URI/IRI class with autoload methods

SYNOPSIS

         use URI::Namespace;
         my $foaf = URI::Namespace->new( 'http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/' );
         print $foaf->as_string;
         print $foaf->name;

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides an object with a URI/IRI attribute, typically used prefix-namespace
       pairs, typically used in XML, RDF serializations, etc. The local part can be used as a
       method, these are autoloaded.

METHODS

       "new ( $string | URI | IRI )"
           This is the constructor. You may pass a string with a URI or a URI object.

       "uri ( [ $local_part ] )"
           Returns a URI object with the namespace IRI. Optionally, the method can take a local
           part as argument, in which case, it will return the namespace URI with the local part
           appended.

       "iri ( [ $local_part ] )"
           Returns a IRI object with the namespace IRI. Optionally, the method can take a local
           part as argument, in which case, it will return the namespace IRI with the local part
           appended.

       The following methods from URI can be used on an URI::Namespace object: "as_string",
       "as_iri", "canonical", "eq", "abs", "rel".

       One important usage for this module is to enable you to create URIs for full URIs, e.g.:

         print $foaf->Person->as_string;

       will return

         http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person
