PHOAF

The most well-known and complete FOAF parsing library is PHOAF, a PHP5 library that provides an easy way to access all the information that could possibly be shared within a FOAF file.

PHOAF is based on RAP, a RDF API for PHP [5]. It is described by its author as "a kind of frontend to RAP, offering users a set of classes / methods to parsee FOAF files". It enables the retrieval of information from FOAF RDF files without requiring any prior knowledge of FOAF or RDF.
