I'm having trouble with a list limit in the security script I use (a free one from the library).

In the globals is reads:

 64 // limit the white list to 25 users
65 integer gIntWhite_LstLen = 25;


Right now I have 10 names in the white list.  When I go to add another name it tells me I have reached the maximum, I need to delete one first.

Have I reached a 'natural limit?'  (Not sure how else to say that.)

I am trying to avoid posting all 780 lines of code here.  I can  not find anywhere else in the code that imposes a limit on the white list.  In additional notes on the script it says:

 

28 list. This limit is imposed to keep memory usage down.
29 - Allows for up to 25 in the white list for the same reason as stated above. When this limit is reached you will be notified that if you want to add another avi you
30
31 will have to delete one from the White List first.
 
If I need to post more info to get help with this I will, but as I said, it's 780 lines.
 
Thanks in advance for your help.

The limit you've reached is one imposed by the script, not by LSL.

It's a bit hard to tell without looking at the script, but I'd start by looking for tests involving llGetListLength() or, though less likely, llGetFreeMemory().

If you don't want to post a huge script here (which you could by formatting it with the code button and then hiding it behind a spoiler button, I guess), you could post it on pastebin.com and put the url in here.

A quick look suggests that, at lines 529--537, when you add people as administrators you also add them to the separate whitelist (which isn't the way I would do it).

Could that be the issue?  That you have 15 people on the Administrator's list? 

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Last night I tried three times, got the message I was over the 10 Ava limit, did "show white'" and it returned ten names.

I decided to get back to this today.  I just went to check to see total number of names, White Listed, Admins, Ejected.

Well I now show 25 names on the White List.  They are all correct / supposed to be on it.

ETA, I am the only Admin.

Frustrating SL.

Thank you for looking at this.

Would there be a noticeable consequence if I upped the name limit?

That's exactly it, Innula.  The variable  gLstIgnore includes the owner's name (line 105), the whitelist avatars (line 442),and the administrators (line 500).  Line 193 compares the length of that composite string to gIntWhite_Listen, which is set at 25.  What it should do instead is compare to that plus gIntAdmin_LstLen, which is another 6 avs long, plus gLstOwnerName (which has no specified maximum length).  So line 193 should be changed to say

if (llGetListLength(gLstIgnore) >= (gIntWhite_LstLen + gIntAdmin_LstLen + llGetListLength(gLstOwnerName)))

I think that should take care of the problem, except for clarifying some of the comments so that it's clear to the user that the maximum is the sum of all three lists (25 + 6 + ? , where ? is probably always going to be a small number like 1 or 2).

@Perrie-- The consequence of increasing the limit much beyond this is that you might run out of script memory.  If that happens, it will lock up and need to be restarted (which means, of course, that you'll have to re-enter all of the names again.)

ETA:  Also notice (line 115) that the owner does not need to put his/her own name in gLstAdminNames, since it's automatically checked anyway.

Ty Rolig.

Looking at this again, I did have one other question.

It says in the notes at the bottom, line 21, That Avatar names are case sensitive.  This has been a pain when adding people.  Is there any way to eliminate the case sensitive issue?

Sure, but you'll have to be careful to watch for each place in the script that adds a name to one of the whitelists.  What you'd want to do is save the name as llToLower(whatever_the_name_is), thus creating lists that are all lower case.  THEN, look for every place in the script where a user's name is compared to the collected whitelists (I think there's only one place, actually), and convert the detected name to lower case as well during the comparison.  So something like

     if (~ListFindList (gLstIgnore,[llToLower(llDetectedName(0))]) )

 EDIT: Even easier (and more reliable) than that last step, change line 114 to be

gStrToucherName = llToLower(llDetectedName(0)); // find out who is touching us

EDIT again:  YES!  Innula's done the heavy lifting.  :smileyvery-happy:

Yeah, I would have it compare usernames, which aren't case sensitive.

Here, hidden by the spoiler, is a completely untested stab at it.   I've also included (I hope) Rolig's fix.

You should be able to give it usernames or legacy names (or Frodo Resident, if you want) and it will convert them.   I think I've changed everything necessary but I stress it's completely untested and my stuff rarely works first time.

Sorry, was an extra day before I got back to this / got to test it.

The case sensitive issue has been taken care of.

Now I may be misunderstanding something here.  I thought part of the idea was to not add Admins to the White List but to ignore (read / not eject) Admins separately?  It is still adding the Admins to the White List.

Otherwise appears to be working perfectly. 

Also, I'm a tad confused by two things in the script. 

 

64 // limit the white list to 25 users
65 integer gIntWhite_LstLen = 25;
66 // limit ejected list to 25 (25 plus the unix time stamp for each avi
67 integer gIntEject_LstLen = 50;
68 // limit admin list to 12 users
69 integer gIntAdmin_LstLen = 6;

1.  I had asked about the consequence of increasing the number of Ava's that could be added to the White List and Rolig said I could run out of Memory.  But I see it can store 50 names in the eject list.

2.  Why the difference in numbers for Admins between line 68 and line 69?

And again, many thanks for your help. 

ETA:  I guess what I may be not understanding is if it the memory length in a list that causes the problem or is it the total of all lists in an individual script?

Well, it's true that the reason to worry about making the lists too long is that you'll exceed memory and lock up the script.  Scripters like to be pretty conservative about staying away from those limits.  Without actually testing this particular script, its hard to say how many more names you might be able to add before getting into trouble.

Notice that the comment on line 66 says to limit the ejected list to 25 plus the unix time stamp for each avi.  That is, the number of elements in the list named gLstEjectR should be < 50 (= 25 + 25).  The variable called gIntEject_LstLen is not the number of ejected avatar names.  It's the number of elements in that list, including the timestamps.

The same is not true for gLstAdminNames, which is simply a list of names. That one's a little confusing except remember that there are two "administrator" lists, combined on line 115.  The second list, gLstOwnerName could have some unspecified number of people in it too. I suspect that the note on line 68 is just saying "Don't let gInetAdmin_LstLen + llGetListLength(gLstOwnerName) get bigger than 12."

Comment lines in scripts are generally the scripter's notes to herself.  Especially in a script this long, it's easy to forget why you did things the way you did.  If a scripter doesn't lead a trail of breadcrumbs, she won't be able to understand her own work six months later.  The notes aren't necessarily meant to make sense to anyone else, though.  The important thing is that the scripter knows what they mean.

I simply adopted Rolig's solution which, in effect, says that the limit to the length of gLstIgnore should be the sum of the limits of various lists of people we're ignoring (whitelist, admins and owners).   

It would certainly be possible to rewrite the script in the way you suggest, and it would probably be a better script that way, but that would involve a major rewrite rather simply changing one line.

Thanks again to both you and Rolig for your help and insight.

I looked at and tried several scripts before settling on this one and chose it for it's overall ease of use and that I could customize it.

On thing I disliked about some of the security orbs I saw for sale was there was no way to reset the eject time.  I think 10 seconds is ridiculous.  I wanted to give someone time to exit graciously.

Also being able to change the warning message:

"You are now trespassing on sovereign Martian territory.  If you choose to say you may find your self the subject of prodding and poking by our scientists..........."
