Customized Command ZZJSON for IRIS

IRIS brought us an excellent %JSON.Formatter class. But for debugging it is not really handy.
see:

ZWRITE js1  
js1="{""Name"":""Cunningham,John C."",""SSN"":""294-11-9150"",""DOB"":""1933-01-08"",""Home"":{""Street"":""4249 Ash Street"",""City"":""Tampa"",""State"":""MD"",""Zip"":""30176""},""FavoriteColors"":\[""White"",""Red"",""Green""]}"   

or

WRITE js1  
{"Name":"Cunningham,John C.","SSN":"294-11-9150","DOB":"1933-01-08","Home":{"Street":"4249 Ash Street","City":"Tampa","State":"MD","Zip":"30176"},"FavoriteColors":\["White","Red","Green"]}

so you proceed for the most simple case

set formatter=##class(%JSON.Formatter).%New()   
do formatter.Format(js1)  
{   
  "Name":"Cunningham,John C.",  
  "SSN":"294-11-9150",  
  "DOB":"1933-01-08",  
  "Home":{  
     "Street":"4249 Ash Street",  
     "City":"Tampa",  
     "State":"MD",  
     "Zip":"30176"  
  },  
  "FavoriteColors":\[  
    "White",  
    "Red",  
    "Green"  
  ]  
}  

Not a big thing. You do it once you do it twice and after the 5th time your fingers get tired.

So I produced a shorthand to save time and reduce mistyping.

The attached ZZJSON.inc is to be included into your %ZLANGC00.mac

ZZJSON js1         ; does the Output to Terminal / Device  
set st=##class(%Stream.GlobalCharacter).%New()
ZZJSON js1:st      ; write result to Stream
ZZJSON js1:"OTTO"  ; writes it to local variable OTTO
