I am using the simple query diego,+CA+92130&output=json

It currently returns JSON but I need XML.  What flag do I use to get this local query t return XML?

    Well, according to the API documentation you should just change the "output" parameter of your request from "json" to "xml", so it becomes: diego,+CA+92130&output=xml

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, but if you try setting output=xml it doesn't work.  Any other ideas?
