int MLGetInteger(MLINK link, int *i)
gets an integer from the MathLink connection specified by link and stores it in i.


  • If the data on the link corresponds to a real number, MLGetInteger() will round it to an integer.
  • If the data on the link corresponds to an integer too large to store in a C int on your computer system, then MLGetInteger() will fail, and return 0.
  • You can get arbitrary-precision integers by first using IntegerDigits to generate lists of digits, then calling MLGetIntegerList().
  • MLGetInteger() is equivalent to MLGetInteger32().
