Subject: Double-encoding and decoding
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 624b
This module currently double-encodes all output and double-decodes all input by default. The standard (and now RFC-required) practice with JSON is that it should always be encoded to UTF-8, so the most efficient/correct way to do this would be: sub read_json { my $json = read_binary(@_); return decode_json($json); } sub write_json { my ($filename, $ref) = @_; my $json = encode_json($ref); return write_binary($filename, $json); } However, this removes the feature of allowing encoding to be specified. Any implementation that allows encoding to be specified will be slower. Do we need this option?
