Salam
I have used MATLAB® C Math Library in my project(MFC aplication in VC++ 6). the result is in a
mxarray, I have recievd error when I want to show it on an Edit box (m_edit1=M (M is a (1*1) mxarray variable type));
is there any function to convert a Mxarray variablepe to double or int type?

i am interfacing fuzzy logic toolbox with VB.
i have created an mfile
function [o]=rap(x,y)
fismat = readfis('C:\Matlab7\work\dmg.fis');
o = evalfis([x y],fismat)
i have created the dll file and i have got the library in VBprojectreferences.
now i want to call the following matlab command in VB code

I have found a strange problem when using the funsction mlfRoots. I use this funtion in a loop. Sometimes it causes the whole application to terminate without any message to user. Do you have any idea to handle this situation.

Hi!! I want to use the Matlab C Functions in cygwin but I don't know how, Can syou help me please?





Hi! I've downloaded your demo but I cannot compiling it because it tells me it cannot find the matlab.h file. I've already installed the Matlab Compiler but I still cannot find that file. I've downloaded the file from a web page but I get errors:

Hi! It's me again.. I cannot find Matlab.h in my computer.. Where is it? I thought il will be in the Matlab firectory but is not..I've read another message which ask the same question and the answer says to install the compiler toolbox but I 've already done it and I cannot find it..
Thank you

Hi! I'm trying to use the Matlab functions for C with cygwin to use the code in Linux later.
When I work with cygwin and I try to use that function in several codes and I always get the same error:
$ make
g++ Wall g O3 I. I../include I/usr/cad/systemc/systemc_2_1.oct_12_2004.be
ta/include I/usr/cad/systemc/systemc_2_1.oct_12_2004.beta/src o ../obj/moduleM
atrix.o c ../src/moduleMatrix.cpp
../src/moduleMatrix.cpp:108: error: parse error at end of input
make: *** [moduleMatrix.o] Error 1
Everybody has told me it was an error because of the lack of a ( or a }, but I've already check it and it's not. I've read your instructions to use Matlab functions for C but I don't understand:
1. I have to write "#include " at the end of the stdafx.h" but I've found two differents files in the folders: "matlabroot/toolbox/matlab/winfun/mwsamp" and "matlabroot/toolbox/matlab/winfun/mwsamp2".
2. I have to add the desires libraries to my projet but I don't know how to do it in cygwin or Linux because it's the first time I use them.
It would be great if you could help me.Thank you
The code I've used to test the correct operation is enclosed here:
mxArray *im[50];
mxArray *name=mxCreateString("image068.jpg");
// Transform image to matrix
mexCallMATLAB(1,&name, 2, im, "imread");
// imag[0] would be the image, imag[1] the map.
Laura.





Hi,
I am using MATLAB 7.3.0 with Compiler. However I can not find the matlab.h or other libfiles. The Tech note says that Compiler includes the Matlab C Math Library, which is no longer supported as a independent product. (Section 4 of this address: http://www.mathworks.com/support/technotes/1600/1622_files/1622_R13.html)
The reading of Compiler manual is dizzy It seems that one need to wrap anything into .m files, compile it into .dll, and then call it in C code. In contrast, the old document of Matlab C Math library just let youu include the head file and use its functions!!! (http://www.isds.duke.edu/comp/internal/matlab/toolbox/mathlib/cmathug/cmathug.html)
So is there any easy way to use Matlab functions for my MATLAB 7.3.0?
Thanks.
Michael





How can I convet C file to matlab?





Please help me in c to matlab conversion.





Hi,
The articles written by you really wonderful and are very much helpful...
In our project we need to make use of quadprog function for the optimization of a problem...
Is there any way to directly call the quadprog function from Visual Basic 6.0??
Or else are there any other ways to do the same thing...
Awaiting your immediate reply...

Hi!
I have a vc++ code (vs 6.0) for a numerical simulation where it generates the results as *.dat and *.gnu files and plots them by calling GNUPLOT. However, the quality comes out really poor and they cannot be used to put for any publication document. I need to use matlab graphics instead by calling matlab functions from my vc++ code.
Could you please help me with how should i call matlab from vc++ code to plot the results.
I am anxiously waiting for any kind of help in this regard.
thanks





Hi,
There are two ways:
1 Using your generated .dat file in MATLAB and plot them after loading.
2 Reading my other article: MATLAB Engine API[^]

Hi,
I have a big problem using the matlab library so as to import .mat files in my programs.
I would like to get the contents of the numeric arrays included in my .mat files. I'm trying with the function "matGetPr", Ihave no error during compilation but, at the execution, the console is closing with an error . Does somebody know how to fix the thing?
Thank you very much
Olivier





Plz tell me how to access the data in mat files





Dear Riazi.
Thank you for your very useful articles on Matlab and C/C++ interfacing. I am using Matlab 6.5 C Engine Library together with LCC compiler. My problem is that I have to call an ODE solver of Matlab whose first argument required is name/address of an mfile which contains equations to be integrated. However I have written that file in C language. I donot know how to call it by the ODE solver.
I appreciate your valuable advice in this regard.
yours sincerely,

Hi, Can anybody send the matlab header file matlab.h to me? This is my email address khrajeeb@yahoo.ca

You must install MATLAB Compiler Toolbox.

I have a compiler installed and the version is 2.4.1 .
my matlab vertion is 7.4
were will i find the matlab.h header

Hi!! I cannot find the matlab.h file either, but I've found an address where you can download it:
http://www.koders.com/c/fid228279372BF42AA27A4F9EA1967C1FD2C8EBB73A.aspx
But I've tried to use it and I have compiling errors but It is may be a cause of my code.
Good luck.
Laura





My problem is explained as following (as described in readme.txt):
This is a simple demo to show the problem. (Matlab 6.5)
function [x] = fcn_update_m(x)
x = x + 1.3;
mcc t L C fcn_update_m.m to produce fcn_update_m.c
This function is used to update the state 0, xD[0] = xD[0] + 1.3;
If I don't use the functions from Matlab C library (eg, mlfScalar,mlfFcn_update_m,mxGetPr), the model is OK in external mode.
But if I use the functions from Matlab C library (eg, mlfScalar,mlfFcn_update_m,mxGetPr), running the model in external mode will reboot the computer even though 'build' the model is OK.
Using
//m = mlfScalar(xD[0]);
//a_out = mlfFcn_update_m(m); /* a_out = xD[0] + 1.3;*/
//a_out_c = mxGetPr(a_out);
//xD[0] = *a_out_c;
to replace
//xD[0] = xD[0] + 1.3;
I packaged the whole folder. But how can I upload the package?
It seems no attachment file allowed here.





Hi Riazi,
Hope you can give me some suggestions about the problem.
I encountered a serious problem when I using real time target model in
simulink.
1. As I wrote all my algorithms in m files, I had to translate them into C
code using command 'mcc t L C xxx.m'. Then it contains many Matlab C
library functions, like mlfDoubleMatrix().(form a matrix)
2. Using sfunction builder to cooperate the algorithm into real time
target model in simulink which has a NI data acquisition board.
3. 'Build' the model is OK.
4. 'Run' the model caused the computer to reboot. I noticed if I deleted
all the functions from Matlab C library, like mlfDoubleMatrix(), there is
no problem. If I added one Matlab C function, eg. mlfDoubleMatrix(), into
update subroutine of the sfunction builder, 'Run' the model will cause
the computer to reboot again.
Software is:
Matlab version 6.5.0.180913a Release 13
June 18, 2002
Corresponding Simulink version.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Thank you!
Best regards,
Bin

Thanks man,
Now i am able to read a mat file now,
actually the file is a configuration file which contain data
in the format of structure,
meance a structure repeatedly contains the structure and in that again a structure and so on,
i have called it recursively i could able to retrive the data now but i can retirve the structure type of data only the other data i can not able to read ...
when i try to read a string or char type of data using mxGetString()
i am getting a runtime application error...
if i use the a code snippet made by u i can able to retrive it as u create that data and read it,
when i want to read a existing data i am facing the problem, same for numeric , double data type
Pls help me out
i need it very urgent as i need to complete it very soon pls help me out...
the code snippet will be a great help...
i am sending u the code which i have writeen.
