mxIsInt8 (C and Fortran)

Determine whether array represents data as signed 8-bit integers

C Syntax

#include "matrix.h"
bool mxIsInt8(const mxArray *pm);

Fortran Syntax

#include "fintrf.h"
integer*4 mxIsInt8(pm)
mwPointer pm



Pointer to an mxArray


Logical 1 (true) if the array stores its data as signed 8-bit integers, and logical 0 (false) otherwise.


Use mxIsInt8 to determine whether the specified array represents its real and imaginary data as 8-bit signed integers.

In C, calling mxIsInt8 is equivalent to calling:

mxGetClassID(pm) == mxINT8_CLASS

In Fortran, calling mxIsInt8 is equivalent to calling:

mxGetClassName(pm) .eq. 'int8'
