2014 HELP: OPENSIM: OSSL adds functions to LSL: threat levels control misuse

OSSL adds functions to LSL: threat levels
in OpenSim Operating System control misuse
OpenSimulator uses Linden Scripting Language in the same way as does Second Life.   But the OpenSimulator devs have added more functions, creating a second language, OSSL.  OSSL allows some functions that could be harmful if used carelessly or with malicious intent.   OSSL manages such functions by limiting who can use them. Here is what you need to know to work with such functions. 

What does that mean to a user?

  • Your objects with threat functions may get error messages in some places.
  • You may need to be a region or parcel owner to execute them in those places.
  • Or you may just need to be in the parcel group or an estate manager.
  • Threat function limits are controlled by grid operators, can vary across grids

What does that mean to the scripter?

  • You have a lot of added functions to work with
  • OSSL Functions (documentation).
  • Threat level for each OSSL function is given with its documentation.
  • In documenting a script with high threat level, a link explaining might be good.
  • Threat Level
  • OSSL

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day. 
If you get an address that looks like this: 
hg.francogrid.org:80:Residence-09:/119/128/190    paste it into the address bar of Firestorm, see if it takes you to the exact coordinates.
