|Literal maps: Creating additional indices on literals|
‘Literal maps' provide a relation between literal values, intended to create additional indexes on literals. The current implementation can only deal with integers and atoms (string literals). A literal map maintains an ordered set of keys. The ordering uses the same rules as described in section 4.5. Each key is associated with an ordered set of values. Literal map objects can be shared between threads, using a locking strategy that allows for multiple concurrent readers.
Typically, this module is used together with rdf_monitor/2
on the channals
maintain an index of words that appear in a literal. Further abstraction
using Porter stemming or Metaphone can be used to create additional
search indices. These can map either directly to the literal values, or
indirectly to the plain word-map. The SWI-Prolog NLP package provides
complimentary building blocks, such as a tokenizer, Porter stem and
not(Key). If not-terms are provided, there must be at least one positive keywords. The negations are tested after establishing the positive matches.
