getrawtransaction JSON-RPC command

getrawtransaction "txid" ( verbose "blockhash" )

NOTE: By default this function only works for mempool transactions. If the -txindex option is
enabled, it also works for blockchain transactions. If the block which contains the transaction
is known, its hash can be provided even for nodes without -txindex. Note that if a blockhash is
provided, only that block will be searched and if the transaction is in the mempool or other
blocks, or if this node does not have the given block available, the transaction will not be found.
DEPRECATED: for now, it also works for transactions with unspent outputs.

Return the raw transaction data.

If verbose is 'false' or omitted, returns a string that is serialized, hex-encoded data for 'txid'.

If verbose is 'true', returns an Object with information about 'txid'.

If verbose is a numeric value, then it indicates the verbosity level

* Level 0: Same as verbose=false
* Level 1: Same as verbose=true
* Level 2: Input value and transaction fee data will be made available
  - This operation will lookup the input transactions loading the data
    from disk if necessary, which might be slow. Also, it might fail if
    this data is not available (due to pruning or no -txindex enabled).


1. "txid"         (string, required) The transaction id
2. verbose        (boolean, optional, default=false) If false, return a string, otherwise return a json object
3. "blockhash"    (string, optional) The block in which to look for the transaction

Result (if verbose is not set or set to false)

"data"      (string) The serialized, hex-encoded data for 'txid'

Result (if verbose is set to true, or numeric value indicating verbosity level greater than 0)
