IMathLink.GetArray Method (Type, Int32, String[])

Reads an array and records information about the heads at each level.

[Visual Basic]
Function GetArray( _
   ByVal leafType As Type, _
   ByVal depth As Integer, _
   ByRef heads As String() _
) As Array
Array GetArray(
   Type leafType,
   int depth,
   out string[] heads


The type of the leaf elements of the returned array.
The requested depth.
Gets the heads at each level.


This method does not enforce a requirement that the heads be identical across a level. If the expression looks like {foo[1, 2], bar[3, 4]} then the heads array would become {"List", "foo"}, ignoring the fact that foo was not the head of every subexpression at level 1. In other words, if heads[i] is "foo", then it is only guaranteed that the first expression at level i had head foo, not that all of them did. If you want to be absolutely sure about the heads of every subpart, read the expression as an Expr and use the Expr methods to inspect it.


Exception Type Condition
MathLinkException If the waiting data cannot be read in this format, or on any other MathLink error.
