Description

GetType is a C gateway function which returns the type of a parameter in the Scilab memory. You must include stack-c.h to benefit from this function.

WARNING: This API is deprecated from Scilab 5.2.0 and is going to be removed with Scilab 6.0. Please use API Scilab (the new Scilab API).

Examples

In this example, the C gateway function takes one input argument and prints the integer corresponding to the type of the variable sent as argument in the Scilab console.

#include <stack-c.h>
#include <sciprint.h>

int sci_mygettype(char * fname)
{
  sciprint("The type of the first argument is %d\n", GetType(1));

  return 0;
}
