MathLinkFactory.CreateMathLink Method (String)

Creates a link based on MathLink parameters supplied as a single string.

[Visual Basic]
Overloads Public Shared Function CreateMathLink( _
   ByVal cmdLine As String _
) As IMathLink
public static IMathLink CreateMathLink(
   string cmdLine


The string providing MathLink arguments.

Return Value

The created link.


Use this method if you want to establish a listen/connect link to a program other than a Mathematica kernel.

You can use standard MathLink specifications for establishing a link, as documented in the Mathematica book or other MathLink documentation. For example, the -linkprotocol, -linkname, and -linkmode switches.

An example of a string argument would be:
string mlArgs = "-linkmode listen -linkname foo";
IMathLink ml = MathLinkFactory.CreateMathlLink(mlArgs);
Most programmers will want to use the CreateKernelLink method instead.


Exception Type Condition
MathLinkException If the opening of the link fails.
