This module defines the structures used to represent and manipulate datatypes. It is designed as a basis for handling datatyped RDF literals, but the functions in this module are more generic.

Documentation
Datatype wraps a DatatypeVal
value, hiding the value type that
is used only in implementations of the datatype.
Users see just the datatype name and associated ruleset.

data DatatypeVal ex vt lb vn Source
DatatypeVal is a structure that defines a number of functions and values that characterize the behaviour of a datatype.
A datatype is specified with respect to (polymophic in) a given
type of (syntactic) expression with which it may be used, and
a value type (whose existence is hidden as an existential type
within DatatypeMap
).
(I tried hiding the value type with an internal existential
declaration, but that wouldn't wash. Hence this twopart
structure with Datatype
in which the internal detail
of the value type is hidden from users of the Datatype
class.)
The datatype characteristic functions have two goals:
 to support the general datatype entailment rules defined by the RDF semantics specification, and
 to define additional datatypespecific inference patterns by means of which provide additional base functionality to applications based on RDF inference.
Datatypespecific inferences are provided using the DatatypeRel
structure for a datatype, which allows a number of named relations
to be defined on datatype values, and provides mechanisms to
calculate missing values in a partiallyspecified member of
a relation.
Note that rules and variable binding modifiers that deal with combined values of more than one datatype may be defined separately. Definitions in this module are generally applicable only when using a single datatype.
An alternative model for datatype value calculations is inspired by that introduced by CWM for arithmetic operations, e.g.
(1 2 3) math:sum ?x => ?x rdf:value 6
(where the bare integer n
here is shorthand for "n"^^xsd:integer
).
Datatypespecific inference patterns are provided in two ways:
 by variable binding modifiers that can be combined with the query results during forward for backwardchaining of inference rules, and
 by the definition of inference rulesets that involve datatype values.
I believe the first method to be more flexible than the second, in that it more readily supports forward and backward chaining, but can be used only through the definition of new rules.
Type parameters:
ex
 is the type of expression with which the datatype may be used.
vt
 is the internal value type with which the labels are associated.
lb
 is the type of label that may be used as a variable in an expression or rule.
vn
 is the type of node that may be used to carry a value in an expression or rule.
DatatypeVal  

getDTMod :: ScopedName > DatatypeVal ex vt lb vn > Maybe (DatatypeMod vt lb vn)Source
Return the named datatype value modifier, if it exists.
getDTRel :: ScopedName > DatatypeVal ex vt lb vn > Maybe (DatatypeRel vt)Source
Return the named datatype relation, if it exists.
tvalMkCanonicalForm :: DatatypeVal ex vt lb vn > Text > Maybe TextSource
Get the canonical form of a datatype value, or Nothing
.
data DatatypeMap vt Source
DatatypeMap consists of methods that perform lexicaltovalue and valuetocanonicallexical mappings for a datatype.
The datatype mappings apply to string lexical forms which
are stored as Text
.
data DatatypeRel vt Source
Datatype for a named relation on values of a datatype.
DatatypeRel  

type DatatypeRelFn vt = [Maybe vt] > Maybe [[vt]]Source
Type for a datatype relation inference function.
A datatype relation defines tuples of values that satisfy some relation. A datatype relation inference function calculates values that complete a relation with values supplied.
The function accepts a list of Maybe vt
, where vt is the
datatype value type. It returns one of:
 Just a list of lists, where each inner list returned is a complete set of values, including the values supplied, that are in the relation.
 Just an empty list is returned if the supplied values are insufficient to compute any complete sets of values in the relation.
 Nothing if the supplied values are not consistent with the relation.
type DatatypeRelPr vt = [vt] > BoolSource
Type for datatype relation predicate: accepts a list of values and determines whether or not they satisfy the relation.
:: Eq vt  
=> DatatypeRelPr vt  
> [(vt > Bool, [b])]  a list of argument value predicates and
function descriptors. The predicate indicates any
additional constraints on argument values (e.g. the result
of abs must be positive). Use 
> ((vt > Bool) > b > [Maybe vt] > Maybe [vt])  a function that takes an argument value predicate,
a function descriptor and applies it to a supplied argument
list to return:

> DatatypeRelFn vt  The return value can be used as the

Given a list of argument values and a list of functions for
calculating new values from supplied values, return a list
of argument values, or Nothing
if the supplied values are
inconsistent with the calculations specified.
Each list of values returned corresponds to a set of values that satisfy the relation, consistent with the values supplied.
Functions are described as tuple consisting of:
(a) a predicate that the argument is required to satisfy
(b) a function to apply,
(c) a function to apply function (b) to a list of arguments
(d) argument list index values to which the function is applied.
Each supplied argument is of the form Maybe a
, where the argument
has value type a. Nothing
indicates arguments of unknown value.
The basic idea is that, for each argument position in the relation,
a function may be supplied to calculate that argument's possible values
from some combination of the other arguments. The results calculated
in this way are compared with the original arguments provided:
if the values conflict then the relation is presumed to be
unsatisfiable with the supplied values, and Nothing
is returned;
if there are any calculated values for arguments supplied without
any values, then tbe calculated values are used.
If there are any arguments for which no values are supplied or
calculated, then the relation is presumed to be underdetermined,
and Just []
is returned.

values supplied to altArgs

be at least as long as the argument list. In many cases, Haskell
lazy evaluation can be used to supply an arbitrarily long list.

data DatatypeMod vt lb vn Source
Wrapper for data type variable binding modifier included in a datatype value.
DatatypeMod  

type ModifierFn vn = [vn] > [vn]Source
Datatype value modifier functions type
Each function accepts a list of values and returns a list of values.
The exact significance of the different values supplied and returned
depends on the variable binding pattern used (cf. ApplyModifier
),
but in all cases an empty list returned means that the corresponding
inputs are not consistent with the function and cannot be used.
type ApplyModifier lb vn = ScopedName > [ModifierFn vn] > OpenVarBindingModify lb vnSource
Type of function used to apply a data value modifier to specified variables in a supplied variable binding. It also accepts the name of the datatype modifier and carries it into the resulting variable binding modifier.
(Note that vn
is not necessarily the same as vt
, the datatype value
type: the modifier functions may be lifted or otherwise adapted
to operate on some other type from which the raw data values are
extracted.)
nullDatatypeMod :: DatatypeMod vt lb vnSource
Null datatype value modifier
makeVmod11inv :: (Ord lb, Ord vn) => ApplyModifier lb vnSource

andy

value can be extracted using an undefined
label value.

data DatatypeSub ex lb vn supvt subvt Source
Describe a subtype/supertype relationship between a pair of datatypes.
Originally, I had this as a supertype field of the DatatypeVal structure, but that suffered from some problems:
 supertypes may be introduced retrospectively,
 the relationship expressed with respect to a single datatype cannot indicate how to do injections/restrictions between the underlying value types.
ex
 is the type of expression with which the datatype may be used.
lb
 is the type of the variable labels used.
vn
 is the type of value node used to contain a datatyped value
supvt
 is the internal value type of the superdatatype
subvt
 is the internal value type of the subdatatype
