JSON parser designed for maximum convenience within the shell
Jshon parses, reads and creates JSON. It is designed to be as usable as possible from within the shell and replaces fragile adhoc parsers made from grep/sed/awk. Jshon loads json text from stdin, performs actions, then dumps to stdout. Some of the options return json, others output meta information. Because Bash has very poor nested datastructures, Jshon does not try to return a native bash datastructure containing the json. Instead, Jshon provides a history stack containing all the manipulations.
