Subject: Error parsing JSON-DWIW 0.47 META.json
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 557b
While installing some modules I saw this error pop up and wondered what happened. Digging into the error it looks like the author hand-rolled the META.json and it is "invalid" but to me it's a harmless error? I don't know the META.json spec well but spurious newlines should be forgiven, eh? :) Attached is the log - you can reproduce it by: Perl-5.10.1 ( Ubuntu 11.04 version ) Parse::CPAN::Meta v1.4401 $JSON::PP::VERSION = '2.27105'; $JSON::VERSION = '2.51'; And just try to load the META.json included in JSON-DWIW v0.47 Thanks! -- ~Apocalypse

It's not that. It has an illegal trailing comma and uses single quotes on a line that should have double quotes. c.f. http://www.jslint.com/
