HTTP

LSL includes functions that utilize HTTP, the HyperText Transfer Protocol, for communicating with other scripts in-world or web servers on the outside internet. HTTP requests incur no speed penalty, but there is a limit on how many requests per object can be made.

llHTTPRequest

llLoadURL
Loads a web page in an external browser.
llUnescapeURL
Returns the UTF-8 characters without escape codes.
llHTTPResponse
Responds to an HTTP request made to the script.
llGetFreeURLs
Returns the number of URLs that the script can request for HTTP-In.
llGetHTTPHeader
Returns the value of the requested header for a given HTTP request made to the script.
llReleaseURL

llRequestURL
Requests a non-secure URL to be used with HTTP-In.
llRequestSecureURL
Same as llRequestURL but requests a secure url (https://)
llSetContentType
