CcFixListDatatypes

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Walks a list, casts the elements to the appropriate types, and returns a fixed list. Useful for things like llSetPrimitiveParams when you've parsed your data out of a string.

Does not currently cast keys to keys. It casts them to strings.

//
//  v3 - Initial public release
//  v4 - Fixes parsing of negative elements in vectors and rotations.
