What You Need to Build MEX-Files

To create a MEX-file:

  • Install a MATLAB®-supported compiler.

  • Assemble your functions and the MATLAB API functions into one or more C/C++ or Fortran source files.

  • Write a gateway function in one of your source files.

  • Use the MATLAB mex function, called a build script, to build a binary MEX-file.

  • Use your binary MEX-file like any MATLAB function.

If you have multiple compilers installed on your system, see Changing Default Compiler.
