mxArrayToUTF8String (C)

Array to string in UTF-8 encoding

C Syntax

#include "matrix.h"
char *mxArrayToUTF8String(const mxArray *array_ptr);



Pointer to mxCHAR array.


C-style string in UTF-8 encoding. Returns NULL on failure. Possible reasons for failure include out of memory and specifying an array that is not an mxCHAR array.


Call mxArrayToUTF8String to copy the character data of an mxCHAR array into a C-style string. The data is stored in column-major order. If the array contains multiple rows, the rows are copied column-wise into a single array.
