       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

       -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

              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.
