JSON is a light-weight, language independent, data interchange format. See http://www.JSON.org/
json2.js: This file creates a JSON property in the global object, if there isn't already one, setting its value to an object containing a stringify method and a parse method. The parse method uses the eval method to do the parsing, guarding it with several regular expressions to defend against accidental code execution hazards. On current browsers, this file does nothing, prefering the built-in JSON object.
json.js: This file does everything that json2.js does. It also adds a toJSONString method and a parseJSON method to Object.prototype. Use of this file is not recommended.
json_parse.js: This file contains an alternative JSON parse function that uses recursive descent instead of eval.
json_parse_state.js: This files contains an alternative JSON parse function that uses a state machine instead of eval.
cycle.js: This file contains two functions, JSON.decycle and JSON.retrocycle, which make it possible to encode cyclical structures and dags in JSON, and to then recover them. JSONPath is used to represent the links. http://GOESSNER.net/articles/JsonPath/
