NAME

       bson_init_from_json - bson_init_from_json()

SYNOPSIS

          bool
          bson_init_from_json (bson_t *bson,
                               const char *data,
                               ssize_t len,
                               bson_error_t *error);

PARAMETERS

       · bson: Pointer to an uninitialized bson_t.

       · data: A UTF-8 encoded string containing valid JSON.

       · len:  The  length of data in bytes excluding a trailing \0 or -1 to determine the length
         with strlen().

       · error: An optional location for a bson_error_t.

DESCRIPTION

       The bson_init_from_json() function will initialize a new bson_t by parsing the JSON  found
       in  data.  Only  a  single JSON object may exist in data or an error will be set and false
       returned.

       data should be in MongoDB Extended JSON format.

ERRORS

       Errors are propagated via the error parameter.

RETURNS

       Returns true if valid JSON was parsed, otherwise false and error is set. On success,  bson
       is initialized and must be freed with bson_destroy, otherwise bson is invalid.
