  • LinkRead[ link ] reads one expression from the specified MathLink connection.
  • LinkRead[ link , h ] wraps h around the expression read before evaluating it.
  • link must be an active LinkObject, as returned by functions like LinkLaunch or Links.
  • LinkRead will wait until it has read a complete expression before returning.
  • You can test whether an expression is ready to be read from a particular link using LinkReadyQ.
  • You can use LinkRead[ link , Hold] to get an expression from a link without evaluating it.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.12.6.
  • See also: LinkReadyQ, LinkWrite, Read.
