NAME

 JSON::ize - Use JSON easily in one-liners

SYNOPSIS

 $ perl -MJSON::ize -le '$j=jsonize("my.json"); print $j->{thingy};'

 # if you have PerlIO::gzip, this works

 $ perl -MJSON::ize -le '$j=jsonize("my.json.gz"); print $j->{thingy};'

 $ perl -MJSON::ize -le 'J("my.json"); print J->{thingy};' # short

 $ perl -MJSON::ize -le 'print J("my.json")->{thingy};' # shorter

 $ cat my.json | perl -MJSON::ize -lne 'parsej; END{ print J->{thingy}}' # another way

 $ perl -MJSON::ize -le '$j="{\"this\":\"also\",\"works\":[1,2,3]}"; print jsonize($j)->{"this"};' # also

 $ perl -MJSON::ize -e 'pretty_json(); $j=jsonize("ugly.json"); print jsonize($j);' # pretty!

 $ perl -MJSON::ize -e 'ugly_json; print J(J("indented.json"));' # strip whsp

DESCRIPTION

JSON::ize exports a function, jsonize(), that will do what you mean with the argument. If argument is a filename, it will try to read the file and decode it as JSON. If argument is a string that looks like JSON, it will try to encode it. If argument is a Perl hashref or arrayref, it will try to encode it.

The underlying JSON object is

 $JSON::ize::JOBJ

METHODS

jsonize($j), jsonise($j), J($j)

Try to DWYM. If called without argument, return the last value returned. Use this to retrieve after "parsej".

parsej

Parse a piped-in stream of json. Use jsonize() (without arg) to retrieve the object. (Uses "incr_parse" in JSON.)

pretty_json()

Output pretty (indented) json.

ugly_json()

Output json with no extra whitespace.

SEE ALSO

JSON, JSON::XS.
