RDF::vCard::Importer - import RDF data from vCard format
use RDF::vCard; use RDF::TrineShortcuts qw':all'; my $importer = RDF::vCard::Importer->new; print $_ foreach $importer->import_file('contacts.vcf'); print rdf_string($importer->model => 'RDFXML');
This module reads vCards and writes RDF.
Returns a new RDF::vCard::Importer object and initialises it.
The only valid option currently is ua which can be set to an LWP::UserAgent for those rare occasions that the Importer needs to fetch stuff from the Web.
Reinitialise the importer. Forgets any cards that have already been imported.
Return an RDF::Trine::Model containing data for all cards that have been imported since the importer was last initialised.
Imports vCard data from a file on the file system.
The data is added to the importer's model (and can be retrieved using the
This function returns a list of RDF::vCard::Entity objects, so it's also possible to access the data that way.
There is currently only one supported option:
lang which takes an ISO language code indicating the default language of text within the vCard data.
import_file, but operates on a file handle.
import_file, but operates on vCard data in a string.
import_file, but fetches vCard data from a Web address.
Sends an HTTP Accept header of:
text/directory;profile=vCard, text/vcard, text/x-vcard, text/directory;q=0.1
vCard 3.0 should be supported fairly completely. Some vCard 4.0 constructs will also work.
Much of the heavy lifting is performed by Text::vFile::asData, so this module may be affected by bugs in that distribution.
Output uses the newer of the 2010 revision of the W3C's vCard vocabulary http://www.w3.org/Submission/vcard-rdf/. (Note that even though this was revised in 2010, the term URIs include "2006" in them.)
Some extensions from the namespace http://buzzword.org.uk/rdf/vcardx# are also output.
The AGENT property is currently omitted from output. This will be added in a later version.
