xlsl-mode is an Emacs mode for editing Linden Scripting Language.
Opening any file ending in “.lsl” will syntax color the file.
To lookup documentation of the word under cursor, type 【Ctrl+c Ctrl+r】. It'll switch you to the web browser of the function's documentation page at lslwiki.net.
Type 【Ctrl+c Ctrl+f】 to lookup a second reference site. By default the second site is http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LSL_Portal.
Type 【Alt+;】 to add comment. Select the text first to comment out a block of code.
Type Tab ↹ completes the word to the left of cursor to one of LSL's keyword. The keyword also includes all LSL constants (such as “ALL_SIDES”).
Tip: If you are looking for a function that has a name “key” in it, but you don't remember how it starts, you can type 【Esc Tab ↹】 on a blank line, then it will list all lsl keywords. Then, you can switch cursor to the completion panel and do standard search. This works for any function or event handler or predefined CONSTANTS.
If your cursor is at the end of the word “llSensorRepeat”, press Tab ↹, then it becomes:
llSensorRepeat(string name, key id, integer type, float range, float arc, float rate)
The template set supports all all LSL functions.
You can have your vector types colored by their own value. This is useful when you work with colors often, such as particle shows, dance floors.
To color, select a region, then pull the menu 〖LSL ▸ Color vectors in region〗, or type 【Alt+x xlsl-color-vectors-region】.
To view a colored vector that's too dark, just select the text.
You can convert RGB color values between hexidecimal format and LSL vector format.
For example, if your cursor is on the word
#cc90ff, then type 【Ctrl+c Ctrl+g】 or
【Alt+x xlsl-convert-rgb】, then it'll become
<0.8000,0.5647,1.0000>, and vice versa.
If you need a color palette, and their hex values, type 【Alt+x list-colors-display】.
To copy the whole file content, type 【Ctrl+c Ctrl+c】.
