Turtle - Terse RDF Triple Language

2004-01-18 19:42

Updated the Turtle - Terse RDF Triple Language document (at a new URI) to add the collections list syntax '(' ... ')' that abbreviates the rdf:parseType="Collection" in RDF/XML revised. This makes some things possible that weren't before such as collections of literals, which turns out to be useful especially in OWL where collections are widely used to group things.

The new document also adds some examples and changes the suggested mime type to application/x-turtle (at least for now). I had a suggestion that the python """triple quoting""" might be nice to add, so I've recorded that.

Raptor hasn't yet caught up with the addition of the collections syntax but it shouldn't take long to add when I get a few hours.
