2016 HELP: Scripting resources in virtual worlds, LSL and OSSL. summary

Scripting resources in virtual worlds, LSL and OSSL. Summary
LSL is the main scripting language used in the virtual worlds.  OpenSimulator also offers OSSL, which provides functions not available in LSL.  Several libraries, documentations and tutorials are available. Here is a collection of well-known resources, reviewed and reorganized from previous articles.  It is intended as an introduction for people with experience in other programming languages. 

Two scripting languages in virtual worlds

  • LSL Linden Scripting Language.  The only language available in Second Life.
  • OSSL Open Simulator Scripting Language.  Additional functions available in OpenSimulator.  OSSL is not a complete language but a set of functions.
  • In scripts written for OpenSim, the OSSL functions can be used as part of the available function library.  The scripting language is still LSL.
  • Many OSSL functions are limited so that objects using them can only run them if put out by people with authority in the parcel.

    • Q: What happened to the Friday event notices you were carrying twice a month?
    • A: They weren't drawing enough interest and alternative sources came online.  I am now running a short  form daily near the top of this blog. A more comprehensive collection is in  Selby's daily news collection.
