Thanks Thierry - jq looks fantastic. Needs to be a new LCB library for
sure. But for now I need to get JSON in and out of Livecode arrays on the
server.

Monte's external is available for all platforms - so it should work on the
server I think the the "mergJSON.so" is the version I believe that is used
on Linux. Puttin it in the cgi bin along side the built in externals does
not seem to be sufficient. How does basic extension configuration work on a
server?
