DESCRIPTION

       The  json::write  package provides a simple Tcl-only library for generation of text in the
       JSON   http://www.json.org/   data   exchange   format   as   specified   in   RFC    4627
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4627.txt.

COMMANDS

       ::json::write indented
              This method returns the current state of the indentation setting.

       ::json::write indented flag
              This  and  the  method  aligned  configure  the layout of the JSON generated by the
              package.

              If this flag is set (default) the package will break the generated JSON code across
              lines and indent it according to its inner structure, with each key of an object on
              a separate line.

              If this flag is not set, the whole JSON object will be written on  a  single  line,
              with minimum spacing between all elements.

       ::json::write aligned
              This method returns the current state of the alignment setting.

       ::json::write aligned flag
              This  and  the  method  indented  configure the layout of the JSON generated by the
              package.

              If this flag is set (default) the package ensures that the values for the  keys  in
              an  object are vertically aligned with each other, for a nice table effect. To make
              this work this also implies that indented is set as well.

              If this flag is not set, the output is formatted as  per  the  value  of  indented,
              without trying to align the values for object keys.

       ::json::write string s
              This  method  takes  the  string  s  and returns it properly quoted for JSON as its
              result.

       ::json::write array arg...
              This method takes a series of JSON  formatted  arguments  and  returns  them  as  a
              properly formatted JSON array as its result.

       ::json::write object key value...
              This method takes a series of key/value arguments, the values already formatted for
              JSON, and returns them as a properly formatted JSON object as its result, with  the
              keys formatted as JSON strings.
