Great article. Any thought to updating it to Ver 8.5? There were a lot of changes to the compiler.

How do you debug your c code? i.e. I would like to use a debugger like MSVC 6 but I'm not sure to do it. Currently, I'm using printf statements which is painful.

If only the Mathworks docs were written this simply, I would have saved a lot of time.
