crlf_to_json Function


C result = crlf_to_json(txt as C [, delimiter as C ])



List of CR-LF delimited rows. The first row of text is assumed to be the field names.


Default value is "|". The delimiter used to separate fields.


Convert a CR-LF delimited list of records into a JSON object.


Converts CR-LF delimited list of text to JSON. crlf_to_json can be used to convert the return value of a method such as sql_records_get to a JSON object. The first line in the CR-LF delimited list is expected to contain the field names for the records, separated by pipes "|".

If a different separator is used, such as commas, the second parameter can be used to indicate the delimiter if the delimiter between column values is not a pipe "|".

dim columns as c = "CustomerID|ContactName|Address|City|Country"
dim records as c = sql_records_get("::Name::northwind","SELECT FIRST 5 CustomerID, ContactName, Address, City, Country FROM CUSTOMERS","","")
records = columns + crlf() + records
dim json as c = crlf_to_json(records)


The example above produces the following output:
