Specification

Mono
Gets the memory limit for the script.
  • The memory limit can be up to 64k.

Examples

default
{
    state_entry()
    {
        llSetMemoryLimit( 4000 ); // set the memory limit
 
        // display memory usage...
        llSay(0, "Memory used: " + (string)llGetFreeMemory() + " bytes, total memory: " + 
            (string)llGetMemoryLimit() + " bytes." );
    }
}
 
// outputs 
// Object: Memory used: 124 bytes, total memory: 4000 bytes.
