Typically you'd configure your web server (or some other piece of middleware) to convert your JSON to JSONP on the fly. I'm surprised there isn't an Apache mod_jsonp that I can point you towards.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Thank you. Your help is most appreciated. It was enough :) I`ve understand it. However it`s kind of confusing to me that JSONP stuff... By the way... can`t I just have a js file with a plain

    var Obj = { foo: function() {return me;}, data: "str", id: 0x8888 };

    can`t tell what`s the big fuss of JSON.

      "By the way... can`t I just have a js file"

      You can.

      "can`t tell what`s the big fuss of JSON."

      If you serve your data as a Javascript file, it can only be read by Javascript. If you serve it as JSON, it can be read by any language which has a JSON module available. (Which is pretty much all of them.)

      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

        Thanks again, it was clean explained and solved some puzzles in my head. As for the perl`s strange json parsing, maybe I have to read more perl. But no problem at all... Thank you again for the good examples and explanation.
