dbmex state enables or disables MEX-file debugging or returns to the debugger prompt on UNIX® platforms.

To use this option, first start MATLAB® from a debugger by typing matlab -Ddebugger, where debugger is the name of the debugger program. If you have already loaded the MEX file, remove it from memory using the clear function. Then call dbmex on before calling your MEX file.
