Build on Windows Operating Systems

To compile and link MAT-file programs, use the mex script with the -client engine option.

This example shows how to build the example matcreat.c. Use this example to verify the build configuration for your system. matcreat is a C program that demonstrates how to use the MAT-File API routines to create a MAT-file that you can load into MATLAB®. For more information, see Create MAT-File in C or C++.

To build the example, first copy the source code to a writable folder on your path.


Use the following command to build it.

mex -client engine matcreat.c

To modify the build instructions for your particular compiler, use the -v -n options to view the current compiler and linker settings. Then, modify the settings using the mex varname=varvalue option.
