(Delphi DLL) Firebase PUT - Writing Data

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

//  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 path (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.
