NAME

       bson_as_json - bson_as_json()

SYNOPSIS

          char *
          bson_as_json (const bson_t *bson, size_t *length);

PARAMETERS

       · bson: A bson_t.

       · length: An optional location for the length of the resulting string.

DESCRIPTION

       The  bson_as_json()  function  shall  encode bson as a UTF-8 string using libbson's legacy
       JSON  format.  This  function  is  superseded  by  bson_as_canonical_extended_json()   and
       bson_as_relaxed_extended_json(),  which  use  the same MongoDB Extended JSON format as all
       other MongoDB drivers.

       The caller is responsible for freeing  the  resulting  UTF-8  encoded  string  by  calling
       bson_free() with the result.

       If non-NULL, length will be set to the length of the result in bytes.

RETURNS

       If successful, a newly allocated UTF-8 encoded string and length is set.

       Upon failure, NULL is returned.

EXAMPLE

          #include <bson/bson.h>

          int main ()
          {
             bson_t bson;
             char *str;

             bson_init (&bson);
             BSON_APPEND_UTF8 (&bson, "0", "foo");
             BSON_APPEND_UTF8 (&bson, "1", "bar");

             str = bson_as_json (&bson, NULL);
             /* Prints
              * { "0" : "foo", "1" : "bar" }
              */
             printf ("%s\n", str);
             bson_free (str);

             bson_destroy (&bson);
          }
