Property Paths

EasyRdf supports querying the data in a graph using basic property paths. This is a small subset of the property paths described in SPARQL 1.1 query language.

You may use the caret character (^) to get an inverse property, for example:

$person = $homepage->get('^foaf:homepage');

You can use the pipe character (|) to get alternate properties, for example:

$title = $document->get('dc:title|dc11:title');

You can use a forward slash (/) to follow a property sequence, for example to get the names of all my friends:

$names = $me->all('foaf:knows/foaf:name');

Finally, in order to use a full property URI, enclose it in angle brackets:

$name = $me->get('<>');
