  string util.TableToJSON( table table, boolean prettyPrint = false )


Converts a table to a JSON string.

All keys are strings in the JSON format, so all keys will be converted to strings!

All integers will be converted to decimals (5 -> 5.0).

This will produce invalid JSON if the provided table contains nan or inf values.
