A universal value class, with JSON encoding and decoding.

UniValue is an abstract data type that may be a null, boolean, string, number, array container, or a key/value dictionary container, nested to an arbitrary depth.

This class is aligned with the JSON standard, RFC 7159.


UniValue is a reaction to json_spirit, seeking to minimize template and memory use, providing a straightforward RAII class compatible with link-time optimization and embedded uses.
