       jsonlint - A JSON syntax validator and formatter tool


       jsonlint [-v][-s|-S][-f|-F][-ecodec]inputfile.json...


       This manual page documents briefly the jsonlint commands.


       The  return  status  will  be  0 if the file is legal JSON, or non-zero
       otherwise.  Use -v to see the warning details.

       Options are: -v, -s, -S, -f, -F, -e

       -v, --verbose
              Show details of lint checking

       -s, --strict
              Be strict in what is considered legal JSON (the default)

       -S, --nonstrict
              Be loose in what is considered legal JSON

       -f, --format
              Reformat the JSON (if legal) to stdout

       -F, --format-compactly
              Reformat the JSON simlar to -f, but do so compactly by  removing
              all unnecessary whitespace

       -e codec, --encoding=codec

       --input-encoding=codec --output-encoding=codec
              Set  the input and output character encoding codec (e.g., ascii,
              utf8, utf-16).  The -e  will  set  both  the  input  and  output
              encodings  to  the  same  thing.   If  not  supplied,  the input
              encoding is guessed according to the  JSON  specification.   The
              output encoding defaults to UTF-8, and is used when reformatting
              (via the -f or -F options).

              When reformatting, all members of objects  (associative  arrays)
              are  always  output  in  lexigraphical  sort order.  The default
              output codec is UTF-8, unless the -e option  is  provided.   Any
              Unicode  characters  will be output as literal characters if the
              encoding permits, otherwise they will be -escaped.  You can  use
              "-e ascii" to force all Unicode characters to be escaped.
