json-parse string expected

Hi,

(json-parse (exec "curl https://www.asdf.com/asdf.json"))

I am getting the message that a string is expected.

The result of the exec has [text]......[/text] at the beginning and end of what is returned.

Is this why json-parse thinks it is not a string?

I tried (json-parse (string (exec "curl....))) too. Still says a string is expected.

How do I remove the [text] ... [/text] so that the result can be interpreted by (json-parse)?

Thanks!

Are you sure the link is spelled correctly? When I click the link, I get "page not found".

Thanks again Ted,! I was able to do it with get-url here.

Code: Select all
(json-parse (get-url "https://pastebin.com/raw/brx7F2vA"))


Code: Select all
(("ID" ("1" "2" "3" "4" "5" "6" "7" "8")) ("Name" ("Rick" "Dan" "Michelle" "Ryan"             
   "Gary" "Nina" "Simon" "Guru"))                                                             
 ("Salary" ("623.3" "515.2" "611" "729" "843.25" "578" "632.8" "722.5"))                     
 ("StartDate" ("1/1/2012" "9/23/2013" "11/15/2014" "5/11/2014" "3/27/2015" "5/21/2013"       
   "7/30/2013" "6/17/2014"))
