[opensource-dev] 2.0 Absolute Dealbreaker - script count feature request

This sounds good. Another function could be:

. list llGetScriptTotal(key_id)

Where it would return the following list of items:

·        Total number of scrpts

·        Total script memory used

·        Total script time

·        Number of mono scripts

·        Number of non-mono scripts


That information would be more use full to both content creators and land/sim owners.

So I was playing with the following LSL function in a sandbox yesterday and I like it, but I'm gonna guess not everyone will.
integer llGetScriptMemoryTotal(key id) returns the total script memory used by all scripts in the object or for agents the total script memory used by all attachments combined. Only works for objects and avatars in the same region.

Potential problems with it:
* Dyslexic naming weird it is.
* No permissions checks, anyone can view the sum for anyone / any object. Since this is the case for the viewer feature it seems like adding any restrictions will just leave people still wanting the viewer hack version.
* No detail information. I think this is best when used on anyone not yourself for privacy reasons. And we do have the UI for finding per-attachment details on yourself. So maybe not an issue.
* Reports 'reserved' script memory. A mono-script will report 64k while an LSL script will report 16k, when really the mono script may be using less (mono scripts average 8-10k last I checked, in actual usage). Being able to report lower results for mono scripts is gated on other development work not currently in progress.
* It doesn't seem like a very complete API.

Still need a script counter *hides*  

What I am probably going to do is get my husband to build me a personal version of 2.2 with mesh and the script counter.  That doesn't help everyone else though.
