Summary

Function: llRemoveInventory( string item );

Remove the named inventory item

• string item an item in the inventory of the prim this script is in

Caveats

  • If item is missing from the prim's inventory then an error is shouted on DEBUG_CHANNEL.
  • If the current script is removed it will continue to run for a short period of time after this call.
  • With multiple executions an llSleep(0.1) after llRemoveInventory will allow edit window contents to refresh correctly and avoid errors on phantom contents.
  • llRemoveInventory will not trigger a changed event.
