void MLReleaseUTF16String(MLINK link, const unsigned short *s, int len)
disowns memory allocated by MLGetUTF16String() to store the UTF-16 encoded string s.
  • MLReleaseUTF16String() is declared in the MathLink header file mathlink.h.
#include "mathlink.h"

/* read a UTF-16 encoded string from a link and then release the memory to MathLink for deallocation */

void f(MLINK lp)
    const unsigned short *string;
    int number_of_codes;
    int number_of_characters;

    if(! MLGetUTF16String(lp, &string, &number_of_codes, &number_of_characters))
        { /* unable to read the UTF-16 encoded string from lp */ }

    /* ... */

    MLReleaseUTF16String(lp, string, number_of_codes);
