MLPutRawSize()

has been replaced by .

int MLPutRawSize(MLINK link, int s)
prepares link to receive raw character data or numeric data of length s bytes.

DetailsDetails

  • Use MLPutRawSize() in conjunction with MLPutType() and MLPutRawData() to manually put data to a link rather than using the type-specific API functions such as MLPutInteger32() or MLPutUTF8String().
  • MLPutRawSize() returns a 0 in the event of an error and a nonzero value if the function succeeds.
  • Use MLError() to retrieve the error code if MLPutRawSize() fails.
  • MLPutRawSize() is declared in the MathLink header file mathlink.h.
