cant - CAnonicalize N-Triples


CAnonicalize N-Triples


-v Print what you are doing as you go

--help -h Print this message and exit

-f uri Specify an input file (or web resource)

-d uri Specify a difference file

Can have any number of --from <file> parameters, in which case files are merged. If none
are given, /dev/stdin is used.

If any diff files are given then the diff files are read merged separately and compared
with the input files. the result is a list of differences instead of the canonicalizd
graph. This is NOT a minimal diff. Exits with nonzero system status if graphs do not

This is an independent n-triples cannonicalizer. It uses heuristics, and will not
terminate on all graphs. It is designed for testing: the output and the reference output
are both canonicalized and compared.

It uses the very simple NTriples format. It is designed to be independent of the SWAP code
so that it can be used to test the SWAP code. It doesn't boast any fancy algorithms - just
tries to get the job done for the small files in the test datasets.

The algorithm to generate a "signature" for each bnode. This is just found by looking in
its immediate viscinity, treating any local bnode as a blank. Bnodes which have
signatures unique within the graph can be allocated cannonical identifiers as a function
of the ordering of the signatures. These are then treated as fixed nodes. If another pass
is done of the new graph, the signatures are more distinct.

This works for well-labelled graphs, and graphs which don't have large areas of
interconnected bnodes or large duplicate areas. A particular failing is complete lack of
treatment of symmetry between bnodes.
