NAME RDF::vCard::Babelfish - convert between myriad contact formats SYNOPSIS use RDF::vCard::Babelfish; my $babelfish = RDF::vCard::Babelfish->new('HCARD' => 'VCARDXML'); print $babelfish->convert($input_string); QUOTES "And the Lord descended, and we descended with him to see the city and the tower which the children of men had built. And he confounded their language, and they no longer understood one another's speech, and they ceased then to build the city and the tower." *Jubilees 10:23-24* "The practical upshot of all this is that if you stick a Babel fish in your ear you can instantly understand anything in any form of language." *Hitchhikers 6* "Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mindboggingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as the final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God." *Hitchhikers 6* DESCRIPTION This is a sort of supplementary module to go with RDF::vCard. It adds some cool functionality at the cost of a few additional dependencies. It's a simple way to convert between the following formats: HCARD input only JCARD output only NTRIPLES RDFA RDFJSON RDFXML TURTLE VCARD3 VCARD4 VCARDXML output only For the RDF-based formats, the W3C vCard vocabulary, as described in RDF::vCard::Exporter is expected. Some conversions are slightly lossy, but overall, even when chaining several conversions together, results are fairly good. TODO Nice to have: jCard and vCardXML input; Portable Contacts.
