JSON::Syck - JSON is YAML
my $data = JSON::Syck::Load($json);
my $json = JSON::Syck::Dump($data);
JSON::Syck is a syck implementatoin of JSON parsing and generation. Because JSON is YAML (http://redhanded.hobix.com/inspect/yamlIsJson.html), using syck gives you the fastest and most memory efficient parser and dumper for JSON data representation.
You might want to know the difference between JSON and JSON::Syck.
Since JSON is a pure-perl module and JSON::Syck is based on libsyck, JSON::Syck is supposed to be very fast and memory efficient. See chansen's benchmark table at http://idisk.mac.com/christian.hansen/Public/perl/serialize.pl
JSON.pm comes with dozens of ways to do the same thing and lots of options, while JSON::Syck doesn't. There's only Load and Dump.
Oh, and JSON::Syck doesn't use camelCase method names :-)
By default this module doesn't touch any of Unicode flags, and assumes UTF-8 bytes to be passed and emit as an interface. However, when you set $JSON::Syck::ImplicitUnicode to 1, this module properly decodes UTF-8 binaries and sets Unicode flag everywhere, as in:
JSON (UTF-8 bytes) => Perl (Unicode flagged)
JSON (Unicode flagged) => Perl (Unicode flagged)
Perl (UTF-8 bytes) => JSON (Unicode flagged)
Perl (Unicode flagged) => JSON (Unicode flagged)
Set $JSON::Syck::SingleQuote to 1 will make both Dump and Load expect single-quoted string literals.
