   The  Rasqal  library  provides  a  high-level  interface  to  RDF query
   parsing, query construction, query execution  over  an  RDF  graph  and
   query  results  manipulation and formatting.  The library provides APIs
   to each of the steps in the process and provides support  for  handling
   multiple  query  language syntaxes.  At present Rasqal supports most of
   the W3C SPARQL 1.0 Query language, some of SPARQL 1.1 draft  and  fully
   supports RDQL.

   Rasqal  uses  the  libraptor(3) library for providing URI handling, WWW
   content retrieval and other support functions.
