MLOpenString()

  • MLINKMLOpenString(MLENVenv,char*string,long*errno) opens a MathLink connection taking parameters from a character string.
  • MLInitialize() must be called before MLOpenString().
  • MLOpenString() takes a single string instead of the argv array used by MLOpenArgv().
  • Arguments in the string are separated by spaces.
  • On some computer systems, giving NULL in place of the string pointer will cause arguments to be requested interactively, typically through a dialog box.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.12.14.
