I have a problem with mex linker.
I have two files a.cpp and b.cpp and I create both object files a.obj and b.obj through mex -c command. Now I want to create the executable mex file through mex a.obj b.obj but when I try I get the error "undefined reference to operator new". Then I try with -v and -n options and I see that matlab uses gcc to link files instead of g++!
How can I manually switch between c\c++ compiler?

I have same problem and mex -setup c++ does not solve it.

The solution is to give mex flag
mex -cxx

I use mex -setup command to set it to C++ but when I call mex to link object files it goes back to C instead of C++. How I can force mext to use g++ ? Please note I am just linking with MEX not compiling.
