YAJL (Yet Another JSON Library)

This is an IBM i port of YAJL, a very fast JSON parser/generator created by Lloyd Hilaiel of Mozilla fame.

This tool was introduced (and is better described) in the following article:

Serve JSON Web Services with RPG and YAJL

For instructions on how to install YAJL, please download the main YAJL file (YAJL.zip, below) and see the README.txt file inside the ZIP file.

The sample code from the above article is also below and is named STOCKQTY.zip. It requires the main YAJL.zip to be installed in order to work.

Note: Updated March 27, 2014 to fix bugs with un-escaping of escaped strings, and pointer error in yajl_get_number.

Note: Updated April 4, 2014 to fix bug interpreting true/false values.
