MLLoopbackOpen()

MLINK MLLoopbackOpen(MLENV env, int *errno)
opens a loopback MathLink connection.

DetailsDetails

  • In an external program set up with MathLink templates, the environment stdenv should be used.
  • You can use loopback links to effectively store Mathematica expressions.
  • Any expressions written to a loopback link can be read from the same link object.
  • MLLoopbackOpen() stores its error results in errno. If no error occurs errno contains MLEOK.
  • MLLoopbackOpen() is declared in the MathLink header file mathlink.h.

    loopbacklink = MLLoopbackOpen(env, &error);
    if(loopbacklink == (MLINK)0 || error != MLEOK)
        { /* unable to create loopbacklink */ }

loopbacklink */ }
