Example MATLAB class wrapper for a C++ class
This package provides an example of how to wrap a C++ class in a MATLAB class, via a mex interface, safely, without memory leaks, whilst achieving an interface in MATLAB that is similar to the underlying C++ interface.
After downloading, call:
in MATLAB to see an example implementation in action.
Look in run_example.m, example_mex.cpp (and optionally example_interface.m if you don't want to use the standard interface) to see how this is implemented, and copy the structure to interface with your own C++ classes.

Added a standard interface to avoid needing an interface class per mex wrapper. Also added an example script.
Add #includes suggested by Richard Crozier (thanks) to fix compilation in Linux.
2nd attempt to fix compilation under linux.
Fix compile error in Linux - thanks to Andreas for highlighting the issue.
