Fast JSON encoder/decoder for Python
This module implements a very fast JSON encoder/decoder for Python.
The module is written in C and it is up to 250 times faster when compared to the other python JSON implementations which are written directly in python. This speed gain varies with the complexity of the data and the operation and is the the range of 10-200 times for encoding operations and in the range of 100-250 times for decoding operations.
This module is an enhanced version of the original python-cjson 1.0.3. Please send your comments regarding to this version to: Viktor Ferenczi <firstname.lastname@example.org>
New feature not in the original 1.0.3 release:
Encoder and decoder functions are extensible to allow conversion of objects not in the official JSON specification, such as Date objects. Unicode and character encoding related enhancements. Automatic conversion of dictionary keys to strings (JSON requires string keys in objects). Extension now compatible with the C compiler from Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003.
