Thank you for sharing a seemingly great toolbox. But like some users, I also failed to compile mex files. Although I don't intend to use "perform_front_propagation_anisotropic", it calls an error:
Unable to complete successfully.
Error in compile_mex (line 7)
leaving perform_front_propagation_mesh, which I wish to use, not compiled.
So I just commented the line 7 in "compile_mex.m", which reads "% mex mex/anisotropic-fm//perform_front_propagation_anisotropic.cpp".
Then compile_mex.m returns a bunch of warnings but it ends without errors. and the functions seem to work, I guess. I wish the author update/modify the compile_mex.m to bypass such errors, and hope this helps others having this error, although I'm not sure if this introduces some insane behaviors or not.
