Hi Paul,

your code might be useful in Studio 8, too.
oJSON is limited
(See description in whatsnew)
- handles JSON up to a certain complexity
- has some conventions that might not fit for your project

so i had to write some addtional routines for my specific challanges.

So if you put it up to github, i might want to add to it - and maybe others, too.

Github is ok for libs, too.
its not mandatory to convert them to json.

It seems that

What's the best way to share this code with the
