The document titled _How MathLink Is Used_ reads,

"MathLink provides a mechanism through which programs can interact with

=E2=80=A2 Calling functions in an external program from within Mathematic=
=E2=80=A2 Calling Mathematica from within an external program.
=E2=80=A2 Setting up alternative front ends to Mathematica.
=E2=80=A2 Exchanging data between Mathematica and external programs.
=E2=80=A2 Exchanging data between concurrent Mathematica processes."

A good place to start is _MathLink and External Program Communication_

 From there you can find plenty of tutorials such as _Setting Up
External Functions to Be Called from Mathematica_ or _Two-Way
Communication with External Programs_.
