Thread Safety

Public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are safe for multithreaded operations. Instance members are not guaranteed to be thread-safe.


Programmers do not know, nor do they need to know, the names of the actual classes that implement the various link interfaces. They never call a constructor to create a link class. Instead, so-called "factory" methods are provided by the MathLinkFactory class to create the actual objects used.

Most programmers will use CreateKernelLink instead of CreateMathLink.

These methods correspond to calling one of the MLOpen functions in the C-language MathLink API.
