json_xs - JSON::XS commandline utility
json_xs [-v] [-f inputformat] [-t outputformat]
json_xs converts between some input and output formats (one of them is JSON). The default input format is "json" and the default output format is "json-pretty".
-v Be slightly more verbose. -f fromformat Read a file in the given format from STDIN. "fromformat" can be one of: json - a json text encoded, either utf-8, utf16-be/le, utf32-be/le storable - a Storable frozen value storable-file - a Storable file (Storable has two incompatible formats) clzf - Compress::LZF format (requires that module to be installed) yaml - YAML (avoid at all costs, requires the YAML module :) eval - evaluate the given code as (non-utf-8) Perl, basically the reverse of "-t dump" -t toformat Write the file in the given format to STDOUT. "toformat" can be one of: json, json-utf-8 - json, utf-8 encoded json-pretty - as above, but pretty-printed json-utf-16le, json-utf-16be - little endian/big endian utf-16 json-utf-32le, json-utf-32be - little endian/big endian utf-32 storable - a Storable frozen value in network format storable-file - a Storable file in network format (Storable has two incompatible formats) clzf - Compress::LZF format yaml - YAML dump - Data::Dump dumper - Data::Dumper Note that Data::Dumper doesn't handle self-referential data structures correctly - use "dump" instead.
json_xs -t null <isitreally.json "JSON Lint" - tries to parse the file isitreally.json as JSON - if it is valid JSON, the command outputs nothing, otherwise it will print an error message and exit with non-zero exit status. <src.json json_xs >pretty.json Prettify the JSON file src.json to dst.json. json_xs -f storable-file <file Read the serialised Storable file file and print a human-readable JSON version of it to STDOUT. json_xs -f storable-file -t yaml <file Same as above, but write YAML instead (not using JSON at all :) lwp-request http://cpantesters.perl.org/show/JSON-XS.json | json_xs Fetch the cpan-testers result summary "JSON::XS" and pretty-print it.
