int WSGetInteger(WSLINK link,int *i)

gets an integer from the WSTP connection specified by link and stores it in i.


  • If the data on the link corresponds to a real number, WSGetInteger() will round it to an integer.
  • If the data on the link corresponds to an integer too large to store in a C int on your computer system, then WSGetInteger() will fail, and return 0.
  • You can get arbitrary-precision integers by first using IntegerDigits to generate lists of digits, then calling WSGetIntegerList().
  • WSGetInteger() is equivalent to WSGetInteger32().
