MathLink C Function


void MLReleaseUCS2Symbol(MLINK link, unsigned short *s, int len)
disowns memory allocated by MLGetUCS2Symbol() to store the UCS-2 Unicode string s with length len corresponding to the name of a symbol.
  • MLReleaseUCS2Symbol() is declared in the MathLink header file mathlink.h.
#include "mathlink.h"

/* read a UCS-2 encoded symbol from a link and then release the memory to MathLink for deallocation */

void f(MLINK lp)
    unsigned short *symbol;
    int length;

    if(! MLGetUCS2Symbol(lp, &symbol, &length))
        { /* unable to read the UCS-2 symbol */ }

    /* ... */

    MLReleaseUCS2Symbol(lp, symbol, length);
