I cannot conceive of any circumstances whereby a script would not have some other way to access the information of the prim property set by llSetText. If nothing else, unless the text was hard-coded into the llSetText parameters, there will be a string variable containing the information. Failing that, it's easy enough to write any scripts that set llSetText so that the text information is also captured in a string variable for later use. Actually, I mis-spoke. I can conceive of one circumstance whereby the llSetText property might be set but there is no way to access a variable, and that is if the object is set no-mod. Otherwise even if you didn't make the object, the first time it's rezzed you can type a notecard and put the text in that, which is then accessible by a script. --   ¥    Reynard  21:31, 8 April 2011 (PDT)

Meant to add the text is available as a prim parameter anyway with llGetPrimitiveParams([ PRIM_TEXT ]); --   ¥    Reynard  21:40, 8 April 2011 (PDT)
The llGetText page was created before PRIM_TEXT existed, and PRIM_TEXT was added because LL agreed that the idea was useful. The page can be redirected now, but it was and is a perfectly reasonable request. The simple case of a script reset is one reason that reading it can be desired. --Cerise Sorbet 02:58, 9 April 2011 (PDT)
