in thread problem parsing json

Here's what I get when I try to parse the JSON you posted:

$ perl -MJSON::Tiny -MData::Dumper -n0777E '$j=JSON::Tiny->new; $o=$j- +>decode($_); say length $o ? Dumper($o) : $j->error;' diamondsandperl +s.json Malformed JSON: Expected array or object at line 0, offset 0

If you pass malformed JSON, you won't get a desirable result. You're using JSON, so with the JSON you posted, you'll get:

$ perl -MJSON -MData::Dumper -n0777E 'say Dumper( JSON->new->decode($_ +) );' diamondsandperls.json malformed JSON string, neither array, object, number, string or atom, +at character offset 995 (before "],\n "...") at -e line + 1, <> chunk 1.

If that's not the error you're seeing, please post the actual JSON document you're working with. Otherwise, you're not likely to get much useful help.
