Description

Constant: string EOF = "\n\n\n";

The string constant EOF has the value "\n\n\n"

EOF stands for "End Of File". It is a value returned in SL by the dataserver event, as a result of a call to llGetNotecardLine. It is returned when the end of text in the notecard has been reached. The value returned equals "\n\n\n", which is to say, three newline characters (0x0a).

Essentially, it is used to let you know when you have finished reading information (usually user configurable parameters) from a notecard, and are ready to move onto the next state or stage of the script.

   }


   dataserver(key request, string sdata){
       if(request == myquery){
           if(sdata == EOF){ // no more text in the notecard
               state ready; //move to the next state
           }
           else {
               //here you would process the data
               iLine++; //then you would increment to the next line count
               myquery = llGetNotecardLine(card, iLine); // now read in next line, and start the dataserver process all over again
           }
       }
   }
