I recently had cause to distribute a number of items to a large number of people, whose names I was in possession of a list of, but not, of course, their keys.
The appalling lack of a useful llName2Key function unfortunately makes it a little challenging to send things out, but this is a problem that I have encountered before, and the obvious course of action is to
For general use I include such a script herein.
In this I included features which tell one how many lines of the names notecard remain, and an estimate of the how much time remains, as well, though this may or may not be terribly accurate.
I am aware that it could be made considerably faster by the use of subscripts to send the inventory items, but that would make for a rather poor example script; I would prefer to keep the whole affair as simple as possible, in other words, in one script that is put into one prim. The introduction of inventory-giving subscripts is left as an exercise for the keen student.
As a further note, a future script using this sort of system to be published here will be a vendor that optionally sends the item to another person - in other words, a gift-giver that allows people to purchase copy/no-trans goods for others, which will allow those who had been forced to rely upon Xstreet for this the opportunity to abandon the dratted site.
