mxIsLogical (C and Fortran)

Determine whether array is of type mxLogical

C Syntax

#include "matrix.h"
bool mxIsLogical(const mxArray *pm);

Fortran Syntax

#include "fintrf.h"
integer*4 mxIsLogical(pm)
mwPointer pm



Pointer to an mxArray


Logical 1 (true) if pm points to a logical mxArray. Otherwise, it returns logical 0 (false).


Use mxIsLogical to determine whether MATLAB® software treats the data in the mxArray as Boolean (logical). If an mxArray is logical, then MATLAB treats all zeros as meaning false and all nonzero values as meaning true.
