  string util.GetPData( string steamID, string name, string default )


Gets persistent data of an offline player using their SteamID.

See also Player:GetPData for a more convenient version of this function for online players, util.RemovePData and util.SetPData for the other accompanying functions.

This function internally uses Player:UniqueID, which can cause collisions (two or more players sharing the same PData entry). It's recommended that you don't use it. See the related wiki page for more information.
