0008358: Remove dataserver event delay
When a script reads a notecard, the llGetNotecardLine() function get replied through the dataserver event.
There is a 0.1s sleep delay when llGetNotecardLine() is invoked.
I don't know the reason why this delay, perhaps it was making sense in the early times of SL. But today it appears to be an useless hindrance.
This delay was removed about 1 year ago in Inworldz phlox script engine, and this resulted in lightning fast notecard reading, without appearent issues.

I think this is a very simple fix, but very helpful for large scripts handling a lot of data.
No tags attached.

Use the OSSL functions, pretty sure they don't have the delay because they don't use the dataserver .. [^]

Interesting functions, thanks you very much. But I keep this Mantis, for portability of other scripts imported here.
Added: the linked page says there is no delay. still need to check how many time it takes to execute. The SL function with dataserver was able to read several lines per script engine time frame (each 16 milliseconds)

Most os functions do not have the built in delays, core has taken the stance that the delays would not be removed due to making it easier to grief ..

Of course this is the beauty of opensource people are free to adapt and patch ..
