NAME ^

JSON::PP - An experimental JSON::XS compatible Pure Perl module.

SYNOPSIS ^

 use JSON::PP;

 $obj       = from_json($json_text);
 $json_text = to_json($obj);

 # or

 $obj       = jsonToObj($json_text);
 $json_text = objToJson($obj);

 $json = new JSON;
 $json_text = $json->ascii->pretty($obj);

 # you can set options to functions.

 $json_text = to_json($obj, {ascii => 1, intend => 2});
 $obj       = from_json($json_text, {utf8 => 0});

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is JSON::XS compatible Pure Perl module. ( Perl better than 5.008 is recommended)

Module variables ($JSON::*) were abolished.

JSON::PP will be renamed JSON (JSON-2.0).

Many things including error handling are learned from JSON::XS. For t/02_error.t compatible, error messages was copied partially from JSON::XS.

FEATURES

FUNCTIONS ^

to_json

See to JSON::XS. objToJson is an alias.

from_json

See to JSON::XS. jsonToObj is an alias.

JSON::PP::true

Returns JSON true value which is blessed object. It isa JSON::PP::Boolean object.

JSON::PP::false

Returns JSON false value which is blessed object. It isa JSON::PP::Boolean object.

JSON::PP::null

Returns undef.

METHODS ^

new

Returns JSON::PP object.

ascii

See to JSON::XS.

In Perl 5.6, this method requires Unicode::String. If you don't have Unicode::String, the method is always set to false and warns.

In Perl 5.005, this option is currently disable.

latin1

See to JSON::XS.

In Perl 5.6, this method requires Unicode::String. If you don't have Unicode::String, the method is always set to false and warns.

In Perl 5.005, this option is currently disable.

utf8

See to JSON::XS.

Currently this module always handles UTF-16 as UTF-16BE.

pretty

See to JSON::XS.

indent

See to JSON::XS. Strictly, this module does not carry out equivalent to XS.

 $json->indent(4);

is not the same as this:

 $json->indent();
space_before

See to JSON::XS.

space_after

See JSON::XS.

canonical

See to JSON::XS. Strictly, this module does not carry out equivalent to XS. This method can take a subref for sorting (see to JSON).

allow_nonref

See to JSON::XS.

shrink

Not yet implemented.

max_depth

See to JSON::XS. Strictly, this module does not carry out equivalent to XS. By default, 512.

When a large value is set, it may raise a warning 'Deep recursion on subroutin'.

max_size
relaxed
allow_blessed
convert_blessed
filter_json_object
filter_json_single_key_object
encode

See to JSON::XS.

decode

See to JSON::XS. In Perl 5.6, if you don't have Unicode::String, the method can't handle UTF-16(BE) char and returns as is.

property

Accessor.

 $json->property(utf8 => 1); # $json->utf8(1);

 $value = $json->property('utf8'); # returns 1.
self_encode

See "BLESSED OBJECT" in JSON's self convert function.

Will be obsoleted.

disable_UTF8

If this option is set, UTF8 flag in strings generated by encode/decode is off.

allow_tied

Now disable.

singlequote

Allows to decode single quoted strings.

Unlike JSON module, this module does not encode Perl string into single quoted string any longer.

allow_barekey

Allows to decode bare key of member.

allow_bigint

When json text has any integer in decoding more than Perl can't handle, If this option is on, they are converted into Math::BigInt objects.

strict

For JSON format, unescaped [\x00-\x1f\x22\x2f\x5c] strings are invalid and JSON::XS decodes just like that (except for \x2f). While this module can deocde thoese. But if this option is set, the module strictly decodes.

This option will be obsoleted and 'un-strict' will be added insted.

escape_slash

By default, JSON::PP encodes strings without escaping slash (U+002F). Setting the option to escape slash.

MAPPING ^

Now same as JSON::XS.

COMPARISON ^

Using a benchmark program in the JSON::XS (v1.11) distribution.

 module     |     encode |     decode |
 -----------|------------|------------|
 JSON::PP   |  11092.260 |   4482.033 |
 -----------+------------+------------+
 JSON::XS   | 341513.380 | 226138.509 |
 -----------+------------+------------+

In case t/12_binary.t (JSON::XS distribution). (shrink of JSON::PP has no effect.)

JSON::PP takes 147 (sec).

JSON::XS takes 4.

TODO ^

Document!

It is troublesome.

clean up

Under the cleaning.
