785JSON module for Perl - JSON::DWIW

      I've recently released a JSON converter for Perl on CPAN called
      JSON::DWIW. Most of the work is done in C for speed. I have found it
      to be faster than JSON.pm or JSON::Syck. It currently assumes
      everything is in utf-8. I would appreciate any feedback you might have.

      DWIW stands for "Do What I Want", meaning Perl objects get output as
      their underlying data structures by default (except for Math::BigInt
      and Math::BigFloat objects, which are output as numbers). When
      converting to JSON, the module should only return an error if a string
      in the input data structure contains a bad utf-8 sequence. When
      converting from JSON, numbers that are too long for your platform get
      converted to Math::BigInt or Math::BigFloat objects, if you have those
      modules installed. Otherwise, the longer numbers get converted to
      strings to help prevent data loss.

      You can get the module from




      or you can install it by using CPAN.pm, e.g.,

      perl -MCPAN -e 'install JSON::DWIW'
