JPOPHP (Json Parser Object PHP)

Json Parser Object PHP

Tiny Library for parse JSON.

JPOPHP (PHPJsonParser) can encode and decode data in JSON format.

We provides a pure PHP solution to take a value and generates a string that represents that value in JSON format.

The package can also take a JSON encoded string and decodes it to retrieve the original data value.

  • String
  • Char (Now this is same as a string)

All public functions are accessible through the $json variable.

  • array $json->decode(string);

JSON Grammar

You can check the JSONGrammar.txt file to view the JSON standard grammar.

JPO-PHP Performance

Competition between json_encode(...) and $json->encode(...)

The basic PHP functions are written in C itself.

Do not expect to reach it quickly.

However, there is always way for improvement.
