I'm writing an application that interfaces with Mathematicas
differential equation solving routines via mathlink. The equations are
loaded and solved and then I need to extract the resulting
interpolating functions for use in the rest of my application. At the
moment, I have a mathematica function which dumps the data points, one
by one, which I grab and insert into C++ objects. This works, but it's
very slow on large functions - when there are 10000 data points, this
takes about 30 seconds per function.

I suspect the reason for the poor performance is that I'm calling too
many mathlink functions - each data point is three "getpacket" calls,
one for the a list header, and one for each part of the data point. Is
there a way I can do this more quickly? How about exporting the whole
list of points as some kind of C++ structure I can then parse with
using mathlink? Does anybody know how I might do this?
