Pass a JSON value from REST API to a Javascript function

I have a REST service , that will give me a JSON return value... How do I pass it to a javascript function as an argument ?

If you have a JSON string you can just eval() it to get an js object. You should only do this if you trust the service providing the value, otherwise use JSON.parse.

But jQuery.get and jQuery.post will parse the result automatically, presuming the correct content-type header is sent.

If that doesn't answer your question can you post some sample code?
