JSONNode::const_iterator i->name inco...


  • Anonymous


    I've got libJson up and running on a particular platform. (ARM based) Running through the basic parser sample, some test JSON file returns i->name as missing the first and last characters. For example, we get the JSON file here:, and load it into a char* buffer then libjson::parse(buffer).
    Where we'd expect "title" the lib actually returns "itl"

    I was having a look through the JSONOptions.h for line endings or any other similar options, but no such joy.

    Has anyone encountered this issue before, or could offer some advice?

    Turns out the JSON file doesn't conform to standards as it dropped the double quotes around the name. Still, I would have expected JSON_VALIDATE to have detected this?

  • The JSON_VALIDATE option does not validate json when you parse it, it simply exposes the libjson::is_valid method, which has to be called before parsing it.  Call this method, it will return a true or false value.

    It is likely that if you use the JSON_PREPARSE option, that version of the parser will throw a std::invalid_argument exception.  In the default parser, there is no way of knowing whether or not the json is valid because it doesn't parse it all at once.

    I hope this fixes your issue, happy coding!
