       jsonclient - Shell command for performing HTTP/JSON requests using Ruby jsonclient


       jsonclient <method> <uri> [params]



       This  program  is an example/companion to the Ruby jsonclient module, but can be used as a
       complete standalone HTTP/JSON client.

       If invoked with a method and an URI, the specified URI will be requested  via  the  method
       given  from  its  server.  The  allowed methods are head, get, post, put, delete, options,
       propfind, proppatch and trace.

       Parameters can be specified as a third parameter and will be delivered  accordingly  (i.e.
       appended  to  the  URI  after a ? sign if the method is get, but as the posted body if the
       method is post)

       Please note that no checks are done as to whether the requested parameters make  sense  in
       the context they are specified, they are just sent as-is.

       $ jsonclient get q=ruby

       If  no parameters are specified, an interactive Ruby (irb) session will be opened, binding
       an JSONClient object as 'self'. You can then call JSONClient instance methods like:

       $ jsonclient
              >> get "", :q => :ruby

       JSONclient will print the `wiredump' of your request (that is, the commands  sent  to  the
       server via HTTP), then the request's headers, and finally the result.
