It would help if there were more examples in the examples directory. There are only 1090 lines including all C files, the make file, all the templates. That's not exactly over-generous for examples. Many examples on the web use "addtwo.c" so are not really much additional help. I feel there needs to be a number of more complex examples. > It is up to *you* to set up your data structure. My data structure is very simple - I just want to pass potentially random data from Mathematica to the C code. I do not expect Mathematica to understand the format - just pass it. The use of "String" may be OK, as that is an "const unsigned char" (I might be wrong about the unsigned), but I'm not sure if Mathematica will handle special characters any different from others.
