mxSetUint64s (C)

Set real data elements in mxUINT64_CLASS array

C Syntax

#include "matrix.h"
int mxSetUint64s(mxArray *pa, mxUint64 *dt);


Use mxSetUint64s to set mxUint64 data in the specified array.

All mxCreate* functions allocate heap space to hold data. Therefore, you do not ordinarily use this function to initialize the elements of an array. Rather, call the function to replace existing values with new values.

This function does not free memory allocated for existing data. To free existing memory, call mxFree on the pointer returned by mxGetUint64s.

Input Arguments

expand all

Pointer to an mxUINT64_CLASS array.

Pointer to the first mxUint64 element of the data array. dt must be allocated by the functions mxCalloc or mxMalloc.

Output Arguments

expand all

Function status, returned as int. If successful, then the function returns 1.

If pa is NULL, then the function returns 0.

The function is unsuccessful when mxArray is not an unshared mxUINT64_CLASS array, or if the data is not allocated with mxCalloc. If the function is unsuccessful, then:

  • MEX file — Function terminates the MEX file and returns control to the MATLAB® prompt.

  • Standalone (non-MEX file) application — Function returns 0.


Refer to the arrayFillSetPr.c example in the matlabroot/extern/examples/refbook folder which copies existing data into an mxArray. The data in the example is defined as mxDouble. To modify this example for uint64 data:

  • Declare the data variables as mxUint64

  • Call mxCreateNumericMatrix with the numeric type mxUINT64_CLASS

  • Replace mxSetDoubles with mxSetUint64s to put the C array into an mxArray
