// A useful example app. You can use this to debug your tokens on the command line.
// This is also a great place to look at how you might use this library.
//
// Example usage:
// The following will create and sign a token, then verify it and output the original claims.
// echo {\"foo\":\"bar\"} | bin/jwt -key test/sample_key -alg RS256 -sign - | bin/jwt -key test/sample_key.pub -verify -
