Introduction

Linksets may store up to 64k of data as key/value pairs available to LSL scripts. This data is attached to the root prim in the linkset and survives transfer, script reset and object copying, it does not count against the memory usage of any script. Once set, the only way to erase it is via either the llLinksetDataReset or the llLinksetDataDelete functions. Whenever a script successfully modifies the linkset data using the llLinksetDataReset, llLinksetDataWrite or llLinksetDataCreate functions a linkset_data event is fired in all scripts in the linkset describing the action taken and key name that was affected.

Linkset data is not visible outside of a linkset; a script may only access the linkset data for the linkset that it is running in. Linkset data is not applicable to avatars.

When merging two linksets, both with linkset data, the new root's data is preserved and the simulator makes an effort to move as many of the key value pairs from the old root to the new. If there is insufficient space for all data the simulator will discard some data from the old root. The data selected for preservation may be arbitrary.


Functions

llLinksetDataWrite

Function: integer llLinksetDataWrite( string name, string value );

Creates or updates a key/value pair in the linksets datastore.
Returns an integer indicating success or failure. 0 is success, a positive number indicates failure.

• string name key name for data to be stored.
• string value String data to be associated with this key.
Caveats

If value is an empty string, the key is deleted from the linkset data.
