Servo Library reference omission

The reference page for the Servo library does not include the function readMicroseconds()

Reading the servo angle or the microseconds is a complete waste of time. It just tells you the value you have already set it to.

What if that value was written by an ISR - you might want to know what it was to see if its worth changing (perhaps you have some jitter-reduction test), so I disagree. Keeping track of it outside the Servo library duplicates storage too.

Whether it’s useful or not it’s a working function that’s not included in the reference page…

That sounds like the function exists but is not documented. I thought in your original post you were asking why that function had not been included in the servo library.

As you can guess I have never found a need for it.

Don't hold your breath waiting for the documentation to be updated. You are not the first to point out shortcomings.
