View list of data type meanings


Returns a count of the number of bytes actually sent to the world. (This will exclude commands that are queued up that haven't yet been sent).

The maximum number that can be returned by this function is a 31-bit number (ie. 0 to 2,147,483,647 bytes). This does not apply to Lua which returns the numbers as a "double" type (floating point).

If more bytes than that have been sent the number will "wrap around" and become negative for a while.

VBscript example
world.note world.GetSentBytes
Jscript example

Lua example
Lua notes
Lua will always return the correct number as the Lua data type is double, not long.
Returns The number of bytes sent to the MUD.
