Has anyone written C code to interface a large App written under C++ and Mathematica? Here is what I would like to do: I have a large app in C++, I am in the cycle of "writting code, compiling, running (f5) debugging" At some point I wish I could transfer data structures to Mathemetica to use mathematica to check that things are all right. Using Visual C++ debugger I could call some of my C code and send structure to mathematica. Currently I do it by saving the data to files, and having Mathematica read it. It works, but I wished for a smarter interface, like using mathLink. I would rather avoid: 1) having to launch mathematica everytime I run 2) launching my app through mathematica 3) Having to connect between the app and mathematica through a dialog. Also can the front end receive outputs without making request to the kernel? It would be cool to send directly print outs without having to type anything in the front end. So I am looking for: C code that will initiate or even launch on demand mathematica or connect to the kernel on demand, without requiring user interaction. thanks. Luc. GM at Day, Mayor at night.
