Non-string output in for loop

This is installment number 3 in my struggles with mathlink. I am writing an application that interacts with Mathematica (through mathlink) via a series of packages written by me. What I want is the output from a derived interpolating function so I can convert it into a data structure I can use for my own purposes. I have managed to make Mathematica dump the values from the interpoloating function table one by one, but unfortunately because I use the Mathematica Print function they are all sent back to me as strings. This is workable, but not very elegant or efficient since I'd have to do some ugly string processing to get at the numbers, rather than just using MLGetInteger(). Is there any way I can get Mathematica to output the values not as strings? Essentially I need the following piece of code: For[i=1,i<=10,i++,Print[i]] to give me 1-10 but as "output" (as if you'd typed 1(enter)2(enter)... in a notebook), not as strings (print[1](enter)print[2](enter))etc. Peter
