WSPutInteger16Array (C Function)

int WSPutInteger16Array(WSLINK link,const short *a,const int *dims,const char **heads,int d)

puts an array of 16-bit integers to the WSTP connection specified by link to form a depth d array with dimensions dims.


  • The array a must be laid out in memory like a C array declared explicitly as .
  • If heads is given as NULL, the array will be assumed to have head List at every level.
  • The length of the array at level i is taken to be .
  • WSPutInteger16Array() returns 0 in the event of an error, and a nonzero value if the function succeeds.
  • Use WSError() to retrieve the error code if WSPutInteger16Array() fails.
  • WSPutInteger16Array() is declared in the WSTP header file wstp.h.

#include "wstp.h"

/* send an array of 16-bit integers to a link */

void f(WSLINK lp)
    short array[6][10][2][1];
    int dims[4];
    int i;

    for(i = 0; i < 120; i++)
        *((short *)array + i) = i;

    dims[0] = 6;
    dims[1] = 10;
    dims[2] = 2;
    dims[3] = 1;

    if(! WSPutInteger16Array(lp, (short *)array, (int *)dims, (char **)0, 4))
        { /* unable to put the array to lp */ }
