Hi,

I have troubles to store or retrieving vector data of in prim description.

How can I resolve that?

I can read a string but retrieving vector data goes wrong

 

the prims object description contains this:

"<1,1,1>"

 

<start>

integer i=1;

string objectname        = llList2String(llGetLinkPrimitiveParams(i, [PRIM_NAME]), 0);
string objectdescription = llList2String(llGetLinkPrimitiveParams(i, [PRIM_DESC]), 0);

vector vdata = list2vector( lList2String(llGetLinkPrimitiveParams(i, [PRIM_DESC]), 0);)

llOwnerSay( "vector string : "+(string) vdata);

 <end>

 

Its driving me nuts

It's perilous to use llList2Vector unless you know for sure that the list item you are unpacking was stored as a vector.  If there's any doubt, it is safer to use (vector)llList2String .  The implicit typecasting involved in llList2String always works, regardless of whether the list item is a string or not.  Once you know that you have safely typecast a value to a string, you can re-typecast it explicitly to a vector.
