The format for the syntax of each function is:

ReturnType FunctionName(ArgumentType identifier, ArgumentType identifier)

where:

  • ReturnType is the type of return value associated with the function.
  • FunctionName is the name of the function.
  • ArgumentType is the type of the identifier that follows.
  • identifier is the descriptive name of the argument.

Primitive data types used are as follows:

intl signed integer
double 64-bit floating point
pstr pointer to null-terminated string
gdlHandle 64-bit1 signed integer
gdlFileHandle 64-bit1 signed integer
gdlShape 64-bit1 signed integer
GsId 64-bit1 signed integer

1The size of the pointer is dependent on the operating system: 64-bit for a 64-bit OS.

All examples in the function reference are shown using "C."

Note: The return values and input values provided for each function are explained in detail in "Summary of Return and Input Values."
