MLPutSize has been replaced by WSPutSize.

int MLPutSize(MLINK link,int len)
specifies the length in bytes of the textual data to be put on link.


  • MLPutSize() returns 0 in the event of an error, and a nonzero value if the function succeeds.
  • Use MLError() to retrieve the error code if MLPutSize() fails.
  • MLPutSize() is declared in the MathLink header file mathlink.h.
