mex build script is sufficient for
building MEX files. Following are reasons that you might need more
You want to use an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), rather than the provided script, to build MEX files.
You want to exercise more control over the build process than the script uses.
mex -v -n options to display the
build commands to configure an IDE. You can also use the
options to modify the build steps.
