Compilers called from the system command line do not display graphical splash screens advertising their version number. It is therefore not always obvious which version of a given C or Fortran compiler is installed.
Below are a number of examples that can be used to determine the compiler version on a specific machine. Each platform section lists version info commands for several common compilers. The fully indented sections are example output from the system command prompt.
You can find a list of compilers supported for use with MATLAB here:
Currently supported platforms:
Linux
gcc -v
gcc version 3.2.3
g95 -v
gcc version 4.0.3 (g95 0.90!) Jul 17 2006

gcc version 3.2.3
Mac
gcc-3.3 -v
gcc version 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1809)

What is the recommended solution for a linux installation (mint/ubuntu etc) with a current version of gcc (now up to 4.8.2) when mex only supports up to 4.7.x?
