User docs for mexlib

Mexlib is a module in Scilab YaSp. You can find build instructions in YaSp page.

This module is based in MATLAB mexlib specification.

How to

First of all, to use a mex function you need a mex file. Here is a small example (call it example.c):

#include "mex.h"

void mexFunction(int nlhs, mxArray *plhs[], int nrhs, mxArray *prhs[])
    double *output;
    double data[] = {1.0, 2.1, 3.0};

    plhs[0] = mxCreateDoubleMatrix(1, 3, mxREAL);
    output = mxGetPr(plhs[0]);

    memcpy(output, data, 3*sizeof(double));

This function is really simple, it just return a double array with 3 values. The important part is the mex.h included and mexFunction defined with these arguments.

To compile this file, you should use Scilab ilib_mex_build function (it is not from YaSp docs).

--> ilib_mex_build('libmexexample',['mexgetdouble','example', 'cmex'], 'example.c',[],'Makelib','','','');

This creates a loader file you should run:

--> exec('loader.sce');

After that, just call your function, created with name mexgetdouble:

--> r = mexgetdouble()
r  = 

  1    2.1    3
