JSON encode-decode problem

Hi there,
In php i have an object myObject, which has integers, string and arrays. I push all of the instances of myObjects in a simple array, then encode the array with $ious_string = json_encode($places_obj_ious);
I then send this string to javascript via AJAX, and decode it with ious_string.evalJSON() using he prototype framework.
What is the resulted object?
I need to be getting the array i had generated n php. How can i itterate through the collection f objects created?

I am doing this
var temp = ious_string.evalJSON();
While alert(temp[0].id) would show something valid alert(temp.length) is undefined.

So i cant really itterate through the "array"

can you show the json string that is returned from the ajax call? that would help.

the above response is the encoded response for an array with 3 objects...
alien109Commented:
What's coming back isn't an array of objects, but an object with three key/value properties

to enumerate though this object, you could do the following

for(var key in temp)
{
    var user_name = temp[key].user_name;
    var user_id = temp[key].user_id;
    ...
}

well it seems to be ok but it is not.
while in php the length of my array is 96 objects, and i can see with print_r they are all valid and not empty, when i do
for(var key in temp){
            myarray.push(new place(temp[key]));
      }

i get 134 elements in myarray...
the last 38 are null...
