in reply to Json epoch datetime with perl

The immediate question I have is what you would need the backslash for. It sounds a bit like an XY Problem to me. You said you really wanted a date field but that still does not tell me what the backslash is good for.

    I want to pass this JSON object to a Web Service and the example structure given for the object is showing the similar kind of backslashes. Here is the exact copy paste of that field. Date is in epoch milliseconds.
    "RoundStartTime":"\/Date(1400569278222)\/",
      Try
      #!perl; use strict; use JSON; my $json = new JSON->escape_slash(); my $roundParams = { 'AllowParticipantsToSeeEachOther' => JSON::PP::true, 'DurationInMinutes' => 10, 'MaxGamePegValue' => 5, 'MaxNumberOfCrackAttemptsPerCode' => 18, 'MaxNumberOfCrackAttemptsPerTeam' => 0, 'NumberOfDefaultHostParticipants' => 1, 'NumberOfPegsInRound' => 4, 'RoundStartTime' => "/Date(".time.")/", 'TimeBetweenRoundATimeBetweenRoundAttemptsInSeconds' => 10 }; print $json->encode($roundParams);

        Thanks a lot man. This worked out perfectly. Surprised, I still couldn't find such a thing over google or in docs.

[Mr. Muskrat]: (considered) Re^3: Please help with Regexp::Common needs to be reparented to Re^2: Please help with Regexp::Common
[Mr. Muskrat]: Is it just me or does that timeout issue seems to be happening more often lately?
[Corion]: Mr. Muskrat: I'm not sure if it really happens more often, but I don't exactly know either
[LanX]: yep
[LanX]: more often for some weeks now
[Corion]: I think I'll have to manually (as god) intervene with that node, as the simple reparenting didn't seem to fix the parent/child relationship of the nodes
[Corion]: I think I have an idea but I'll have to open a ticket with Pair.com on that - hopefully I get to that on the weekend
LanX imagines a burning thorn bush
[Mr. Muskrat]: Thank you!
[Mr. Muskrat]: Oh that is odd. I got the message that it was reparented but yeah, it didn't actually do it. lol
