  • intMLMain(intargc,char**argv) sets up communication between an external program started using Install and Mathematica.
  • The code for MLMain() is generated automatically by mprep or mcc.
  • MLMain() opens a MathLink connection using the parameters specified in argv, then goes into a loop waiting for CallPacket objects to arrive from Mathematica.
  • MLMain() internally calls MLOpenArgv().
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.12.3.
