(DataFlex) Firebase GET - Reading Data

Demonstrates how to read parts of a Firebase JSON database. The data used in this example is at Chilkat Firebase Pigs Database, and is shown here:

        Move i + 1 To i
    Loop

    //  Note: In many of the Chilkat examples, you may notice strange ways
    //  of doing something that should be simpler and shorter.  For example,
    //  building the piggyPath (above) could've been written differently,
    //  with some simple string concatenation.
    // 
    //  The reason is that the Chilkat examples are written in a
    //  proprietary "example code" scripting language,
    //  and then automatically generated to each of the different programming
    //  languages you see on example-code.com.  The code generation is
    //  limited in what it can do.  For example, string concatentation
    //  is not yet a feature of the "example code" scripting language (as of May 2016),
    //  and therefore you won't see the use of a programming language's string
    //  concatentation operators in any example.
    //
