C++ MATLAB Data API Shared Library Integration

Create and integrate packaged MATLAB® functions into C++ applications using the MATLAB Data API

Shared libraries that use the MATLAB Data API have a generic interface that uses modern C++ semantics. The interface supports C++11 functionality and has several advantages over the mwArray API, including type-safety and multithread-safety. The interface provides functions that ensure correct initialization and termination of applications. It can be run either in-process or out-of-process and can call functions asynchronously. For details, see MATLAB Data API for C++.
