Subject Re: Appending "\n" and pretty printing output from the command line using curl (with a smidge of python)
Date Fri, 22 Aug 2008 15:34:19 GMT
I'm leery about having the server emit newlines, when payloads are  
signed little things like that can cause headaches.

My preference is a command line script or client that wraps curl and  
pretty prints json and emits newlines when appropriate.
