This is a very simple question. I'm trying implement a client for Bitcoind JSON API and I'm stuck on this getrawtransaction call:


As the result I get:

{"result":null,"error":{"code":-1,"message":"getrawtransaction <txid> 
[verbose=0]\nIf verbose=0, returns a string that is\nserialized, hex-encoded data for
 <txid>.\nIf verbose is non-zero, returns an Object\nwith information about

Could someone point me at what can be wrong? I'm sure it's something simple but I cannot get it. Bitcoind v. 0.8.
