==== Description: ====
FDRDF is a tool that builds an RDF-based catalogue of descriptions by
extracting metadata from files.  The descriptions currently include: file
status (as per the stat system call); SHA-1 hash over the file contents; MIME
type (as guessed by the file tool), geospatial metadata (as per Geo::GDAL),
and GRIB file composition (as per GRIB API).

The resulting catalogue could then be stored into a Redland RDF storage, or
be serialized into a file (as RDF/XML, Ntriples, Turtle, JSON or anything else
the Raptor library supports.)

==== Other Comments: ====
Sure, there're a lot of tools that extract metadata (say, song titles), but
they are mostly domain-specific (say, work only on audio files, but not on
satellite imagery), or are loosely based on a relational model (while semantic
networks may give more freedom to the user.)  This package tries to address
these issues.
