LinkReadyQ

  • LinkReadyQ[ link ] tests whether there is an expression ready to read from the specified MathLink connection.
  • link must be an active LinkObject, as returned by functions like LinkLaunch or Links.
  • If LinkReadyQ[ link ] returns True, then LinkRead[ link ] will not block under any normal circumstances.
  • If LinkReadyQ[ link ] returns False, then LinkRead[ link ] will block, and will not return until something becomes available to read on link.
  • LinkReadyQ[ link ] tests whether there is any data to read; it cannot determine whether the data represents a complete expression.
  • LinkReadyQ corresponds to the MathLink library function MLReady().
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.12.6.
