/**
@brief A strict JSON parser and generator
This is the parser and generator underlying the categories added to
NSString and various other objects.
Objective-C types are mapped to JSON types and back in the following way:
@li NSNull -> Null -> NSNull
@li NSString -> String -> NSMutableString
@li NSArray -> Array -> NSMutableArray
@li NSDictionary -> Object -> NSMutableDictionary
@li NSNumber (-initWithBool:) -> Boolean -> NSNumber -initWithBool:
@li NSNumber -> Number -> NSDecimalNumber
In JSON the keys of an object must be strings. NSDictionary keys need
not be, but attempting to convert an NSDictionary with non-string keys
into JSON will throw an exception.
NSNumber instances created with the +numberWithBool: method are
converted into the JSON boolean "true" and "false" values, and vice
versa. Any other NSNumber instances are converted to a JSON number the
way you would expect. JSON numbers turn into NSDecimalNumber instances,
as we can thus avoid any loss of precision.
Strictly speaking correctly formed JSON text must have <strong>exactly
one top-level container</strong>. (Either an Array or an Object.) Scalars,
i.e. nulls, numbers, booleans and strings, are not valid JSON on their own.
It can be quite convenient to pretend that such fragments are valid
JSON however, and this class lets you do so.
This class does its best to be as strict as possible, both in what it
accepts and what it generates. (Other than the above mentioned support
for JSON fragments.) For example, it does not support trailing commas
in arrays or objects. Nor does it support embedded comments, or
anything else not in the JSON specification.
