MLPutSymbol()

int MLPutSymbol(MLINK link, const char *s)
puts a symbol whose name is given by the character string s to the MathLink connection specified by link.

DetailsDetails

  • The character string must be terminated with a null byte, corresponding to \0 in C.
  • MLPutSymbol() returns 0 in the event of an error, and a nonzero value if the function succeeds.
  • Use MLError() to retrieve the error code if MLPutSymbol() fails.
  • MLPutSymbol() is declared in the MathLink header file mathlink.h.

    if(! MLPutFunction(lp, "Sin", 1))

    if(! MLPutSymbol(lp, "x"))
        { /* unable to put the symbol to lp */ }

    if(! MLPutSymbol(lp, "x"))

        { /* unable to flush any outgoing data buffered in lp */ }
