`SCIDIR/examples/mexfiles`

contain
some examples of Matlab mexfiles which can be used as interfaces
in the Scilab environment. The Scilab `mexlib`

library emulates
the most commonly used Matlab `mxfunctions`

such as
`mxGetM`

, `mxGetPr`

, `mxGetIr`

etc. Not all the
`mxfunctions`

are available but standard mexfiles which make use
of matrices (possibly sparse), character strings and n-dimensional arrays
can be used without any modification in the Scilab environment.
