ydump(1) JSON pretty printer


ydump [Options...] [file]


ydump pretty prints data in the extended JSON format of the yojson library. JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation and is a lightweight data-interchange format.

ydump reads from standard input if the file argument is omitted.


-o <file>
pretty print to file instead of standard output
use JSON standard syntax only: Convert tuples and variants into standard JSON, refuse to print NaN and infinities, require the root node to be either an object or an array.
compact output
streaming mode: read and write a sequence of JSON values instead of just one (this is the default).
disable streaming mode: A single JSON record is expected.
sort object fields (default: preserve internal field order)
convert to biniou format and pretty print that (experimental)
print version and exit
-help | --help
print options
