  • LinkInterrupt[ link ] sends an interrupt to the program at the other end of the specified MathLink connection.
  • link must be an active LinkObject, as returned by functions such as LinkLaunch or Links.
  • It is up to the external program to determine how it will handle the interrupt.
  • External programs created from MathLink templates will by default set the global variable MLAbort if they receive an abort.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.12.7.
