WSGetInteger8()
This feature is not supported on the Wolfram Cloud.

int WSGetInteger8(WSLINK l, unsigned char *i)
gets an 8-bit integer from the WSTP connection specified by l and stores it in i.

DetailsDetails

  • If the data on the link corresponds to a real number, WSGetInteger8() will round it to an integer.
  • If the data on the link corresponds to an integer too large to store in a C unsigned char on your computer system, then WSGetInteger8() will fail, and return 0.
  • You can get arbitrary-precision integers by first using IntegerDigits to generate lists of digits, and then calling WSGetInteger8List().
  • WSGetInteger8() returns a nonzero function value if the function succeeds.
  • Use WSError() to retrieve the error code if WSGetInteger8() fails.
  • WSGetInteger8() is declared in the WSTP header file wstp.h.
