Christian and All,

This is for preparing the answer to Thomas Krekeler's question:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rif-dev/2010Sep/0000.html

in RIF dev (I subscribed to that list recently).

Christian, you have started this preparation in the RIF dev list:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rif-dev/2010Sep/0002.html

I suggest to move this and other answer preparations here
(e.g., also for Paul Gearon's "Relative IRIs and literals" question:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rif-dev/2010Nov/0000.html).

Maybe, we should also give a hint about the foci of discussion in
RIF dev vs. RIF comments.

I agree to tell TK that the empty args element must be omitted in
RIF/XML and that this will be made explicit in the next version of the
specs.

I propose the below changes in BLD.
Analogous clarifications should then also be done in FLD
(besides explanations of the ranges of the subscripts).

Harold


BLD:

http://www.w3.org/2005/rules/wiki/BLD#Mapping_of_the_Condition_Language

Split off table rows for empty args for clarity:



column 1 (new):

pred (
     )

column 2 (new):

<Atom>
  <op>÷bld(pred)</op>
</Atom>






column 1 (replace n with m):

pred (
  argument1
  . . .
  argumentm

    )





column 2 (replace n with m)


<Atom>
  <op>÷bld(pred)</op>
  <args ordered="yes">
    ÷bld(argument1)
    . . .
    ÷bld(argumentm)
  </args>
</Atom>





column 1 (new):

func (
     )

column 2 (new):

<Expr>
  <op>÷bld(func)</op>
</Expr>

column 1 (replace n with m):



func (
  argument1
  . . .
  argumentm

     )


column 2 (replace n with m)

<Expr>
  <op>÷bld(func)</op>
  <args ordered="yes">
    ÷bld(argument1)
    . . .
    ÷bld(argumentm)
  </args>
</Expr>
