json 1.2.0
==========

This extension implements the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON)
data-interchange format as specified in [0].

Two functions are implemented: encoding and decoding. The decoding
is handled by a parser based on JSON_checker[1] by Douglas Crockford.


Function overview
-----------------

    string json_encode ( mixed value )

json_encode returns a string containing the JSON representation of value.
value can be any type except a resource.

    mixed json_decode ( string json, [bool assoc] )

json_decode takes a JSON string and converts it into a PHP variable.
When assoc is given, and evaluates to TRUE, json_decode() will return
any objects as associative arrays.


Example usage
-------------

$arr = array("a"=>1,"b"=>2,"c"=>3,"d"=>4,"e"=>5);
echo json_encode($arr);

---> {"a":1,"b":2,"c":3,"d":4,"e":5}

$json = '{"a":1,"b":2,"c":3,"d":4,"e":5}';
var_dump(json_decode($json));

---> object(stdClass)#1 (5) {
        ["a"]=>
        int(1)
        ["b"]=>
        int(2)
        ["c"]=>
        int(3)
        ["d"]=>
        int(4)
        ["e"]=>
        int(5)
     }

$json = '{"a":1,"b":2,"c":3,"d":4,"e":5}';
var_dump(json_decode($json, true));

---> array(5) {
        ["a"]=>
        int(1)
        ["b"]=>
        int(2)
        ["c"]=>
        int(3)
        ["d"]=>
        int(4)
        ["e"]=>
        int(5)
     }
