*
* PURPOSE:
* JSON.AssignScriptResults uses the current script result assuming
* JSON format to declare and populate a series of locally-scoped script variables.

* RETURNS:

* includes the empty string) and all parameters defined as required according to
* the script name are non-null; False (0) otherwise.
*
* PARAMETERS: none
*
* DEPENDENCIES: none
*
*
* HISTORY:
* PORTED on 2019-03-28 by michael.wallace@empoweredds.com to use JSON parameters
* MODIFIED on 2010-10-04 by jeremy@kyologic.com to return explicit True or
* False values indicating successful evaluation of the script parameter, and to
* fit syntax inspired by a comment on standards.filemakermagazine.com by
* Richard Dyce.
* CREATED on 2010-03-13 by Jeremy Bante of Kyo Logic (jeremy@kyologic.com).
* INSPIRED by an example in the FileMaker help documentation.
