MLPutUTF16String()

int MLPutUTF16String(MLINK link, const unsigned short *s, int len)
puts a UTF-16 string s of length len to the MathLink connection specified by link.

DetailsDetails

  • MLPutUTF16String() determines the number of characters in the string s automatically.
  • MLPutUTF16String() returns 0 in the event of an error, and a nonzero value if the function succeeds.
  • Use MLError() to retrieve the error code if MLPutUTF16String() fails.
  • MLPutUTF16String() is declared in the MathLink header file mathlink.h.
