Hi, MathGroup,

is it possible, to set up a MathLink function which
returns nothing via MathLink (on WinNT, if that matters)?

How would one set up the MPEP-Pattern for this?
Is there a :ReturnType:None?

If one uses :ReturnType:Manual, would one have
to call a MLxxx-function at the end of ones C-code,
to tell, that the function Link is ready for
the next communication?

The reason for my question: Up to now, I have 
returned just one integer, even if it was never 
used. Now I want to get rid of this overhead, 
if possible.

kind regards
