mxArraythat work with MATLAB®
You can call your own C or C++ programs from the MATLAB command line as if they were built-in functions. These programs are called MEX files and the function name is the MEX file name.
To create a MEX file, write your programs using MATLAB APIs. The functions in these libraries facilitate the transfer of data between MEX files and the workspace. Choose either the C Matrix API or the MATLAB Data API; you cannot mix functions from these APIs.
Build your source file into an executable program using the
mex function. You can also share
the MEX file with other MATLAB users.
If you have a C/C++ program and want to call MATLAB functions from the program, then use one of the engine APIs.
If you want to read and write MATLAB data from C/C++ programs, then use the MATLAB C API to Read MAT-File Data.
