JSON parser discovery

A coworker hipped me to the fact that OSX has a built-in json parser.
As does linux.
Takes input from stdin and sends to stdout, so

json_pp < filename

will parse and pretty-print a json file for you.

I was feeling uneasy about posting json data to online parsers,
and this does the trick quite nicely.
Hope this helps.
