=head1 NAME

RDF::Trine::Namespace - Abbreviated syntax for constructing RDF node objects

=head1 VERSION

This document describes RDF::Trine::Namespace version 1.019

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    use RDF::Trine::Namespace qw(rdf);
    my $foaf = RDF::Trine::Namespace->new( 'http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/' );
    my $pred = $foaf->name;
    my $type = $rdf->type;
    print $pred->as_string; # '[http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/name]'

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This module provides an abbreviated syntax for creating RDF::Trine::Node objects
for URIs sharing common namespaces. The module provides a constructor for creating
namespace objects which may be used for constructing Node objects. Calling any
method (other than 'import', 'new', 'uri' or 'AUTOLOAD') on the namespace object
will return a RDF::Trine::Node object representing the URI of the method name
appended to the namespace.

=item C<uri>

Returns the URI node object for the namespace, with an optional path argument
added to the end of it.

	return RDF::Trine::Node::Resource->new( $uri );

=item C<< uri_value >>

Returns the URI/IRI value of this namespace.
