WSEvaluateString()
This feature is not supported on the Wolfram Cloud.

int WSEvaluateString(WSLINK link,char *string)
sends a string to the Wolfram Language for evaluation, and discards any packets sent in response.

DetailsDetails

  • The code for WSEvaluateString() is not included in the WSTP library, but is generated automatically by mcc or mprep in processing WSTP template files.
  • will cause to be printed in a Wolfram System session at the other end of the link.
  • WSEvaluateString() is only available for use in mprep WSTP template programs.
  • WSEvaluateString() returns 0 on failure and a nonzero value on success.
  • WSEvaluateString() is declared in the WSTP header file wstp.h.
