CheckOutputArgument

C function which checks the number of output arguments present in the calling Scilab function.

Calling Sequence

CheckOutputArgument(void* _pvCtx, int iMin, int iMax)

Arguments

pvApiCtx

Scilab environment pointer, pass in "pvApiCtx" provided by api_scilab.h

iMin

the minimum number of output arguments which must be present in the calling Scilab function

iMax

the maximum number of output arguments which must be present in the calling Scilab function

Description

C function which checks the number of output arguments present in the calling Scilab function. You must include api_scilab.h to benefit from this function.

If the number of arguments is not between _iMin and _iMax, we quit the C interface (return 0;) and an error is returned in the Scilab console.

Since CheckOutputArgument is doing a return 0; within the gateway function, it is important to call this function before any memory allocation in order to avoid any memory leak.

This function replaces the deprecated CheckLhs function

Examples

In this example, the C gateway function checks for a number of output arguments which must be between 2 and 3.

#include <api_scilab.h>

int sci_mychecklhs(char * fname)
{
  CheckOutputArgument(pvApiCtx, 2, 3);

  // Read input argument

  // Perform some operations

  // Return output argument
  return 0;
}

Now, some functions testing this interface:

[A,B] = mychecklhs(); // OK, 2 output arguments
[A,B,C] = mychecklhs(); // OK, 3 output arguments
[A] = mychecklhs(); // ERROR, 1 output argument
[A,B,C,D] = mychecklhs(); // ERROR, 4 output arguments
