1 GAP-JSON mapping

This package defines a mapping between the JSON markup language and GAP. The built-in datatypes of GAP provide an easy mapping to and from JSON. This package uses the following mapping between GAP and JSON.

Note that this library is *NOT* intended to provide a general purpose library for transmitting any GAP object. If you wish to do this, look at the openmath package, or IO_Pickle in the IO package.

1.1 Methods

1.1-1 GapToJsonStream
‣ GapToJsonStream( stream, value )( function )

Converts the value to JSON, and outputs it to stream. This function disables GAP's usual line splitting while JSON is being outputted.

1.1-2 GapToJsonString
‣ GapToJsonString( value )( function )

Returns: string

Converts a GAP value to a JSON string.

1.1-3 JsonStringToGap
‣ JsonStringToGap( string )( function )

Returns: value

Converts a JSON string into a GAP value.

1.1-4 JsonStreamToGap
‣ JsonStreamToGap( stream )( function )

Returns: value

Reads a single JSON object from a stream and converts it to a GAP value.
