YAJL-Fort 1.1 Released

Version 1.1 of YAJL-Fort is a minor update. It includes improved CMake handling of the C yajl library, and a tweak to the example driver that works around a bug in early versions of the Intel 13 compiler. The core Fortran module is unchanged.

A non-trivial application of YAJL-Fort

I'd like to call attention to a non-trivial application of the YAJL-Fort JSON parser.

I've recently uploaded to the Petaca Project a "parameter list" functionality for Fortran inspired by, and modeled after, the Teuchos::ParameterList C++ class from Trilinos. A parameter list is a hierarchical data structure consisting of collection of name/value pairs, where a value can be a scalar or array of primitive types, or a parameter list itself. This data structure can be represented very naturally using JSON, and this implementation includes code that uses YAJL-Fort to instantiate a parameter list using JSON read from a disk file. See the file parameter_list_json.F90 in the code repository.... read more
