MLReleaseByteArray has been replaced by WSReleaseByteArray.

void MLReleaseByteArray(MLINK link,unsigned char *a,int *dims,char **heads,int d)

disowns the memory allocated by MLGetByteArray() to store the array a, its dimensions dims and the heads heads.


  • MLReleaseByteArray() is declared in the MathLink header file mathlink.h.


Basic Examples  (1)

#include "mathlink.h"

/* read an array of integers each of size 1 byte and then release that memory to MathLink for deallocation */

void f(MLINK lp)
    unsigned char *data;
    int *dimensions;
    char **heads;
    int depth;

    if(! MLGetByteArray(lp, &data, &dimensions, &heads, &depth))
        { /* unable to read array from lp */ }

    /* ... */

    MLReleaseByteArray(lp, data, dimensions, heads, depth);
