    r           => 1,                   # include results

DESCRIPTION

Search::OpenSearch::Response::JSON serializes to JSON.

The OpenSearch specification is for XML, but some alternative JSON formats are defined at http://www.opensearch.org/Community/JSON_Formats.

This class follows none of the examples exactly, but is fairly close to the NYTimes format.

METHODS

This class is a subclass of Search::OpenSearch::Response. Only new or overridden methods are documented here.

stringify

Returns the Response in JSON format.

Response objects are overloaded to call stringify().

content_type

Returns appropriate MIME type for the format returned by stringify().
