Re: how to create a list in easyJSON

As a warning for others, fastJSON is not directly interchangeable with easyJSON. I'm using a big array that has a couple levels of numeric keys before you get to the text keys. When fastJSON converts the array to JSON it throws out the numeric keys and just turns everything into a list. I don't
