MLGetReal has been replaced by WSGetReal.

int MLGetReal(MLINK link,double *x)

gets a floating-point number from the MathLink connection specified by link and stores it in x.


  • If the data on the link corresponds to an integer, MLGetReal() will coerce it to a double before storing it in x.
  • If the data on the link corresponds to a number outside the range that can be stored in a C double on your computer system, then MLGetReal() will fail, and return 0.
  • You can get arbitrary-precision real numbers by first using RealDigits to generate lists of digits, then calling MLGetIntegerList().
  • MLGetReal() is normally equivalent to MLGetDouble() and MLGetReal64().
