Boost mex compilation error > SharedMatrix

5 views (last 30 days)
Hello, I use matlab a alot but not much C. I'm trying to use SharedMatrix ( http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/28572-sharedmatrix). I downloaded the Boost library and tried to install/compile it with:
mex -v -O -win32 -I'C:\Program Files\boost\boost_1_51' SharedMemory.cpp
The exact output I get is:
***************************************************************************
Warning: Neither -compatibleArrayDims nor -largeArrayDims is selected.
Using -compatibleArrayDims. In the future, MATLAB will require
the use of -largeArrayDims and remove the -compatibleArrayDims
option. For more information, see:

Could you please
  1. Explain the error to me.
  2. How do I fix this? I have used code that supposedly many people have successfully used. Why would these errors come up on my machine?

The supplied lcc compiler is a C compiler only, not a C++ compiler. You will not be able to compile cpp files with lcc. You need to install and select a C++ compiler to compile cpp files.

Ah brilliant. May I ask which modern C++ compiler I should get? Also, I assume I change the compiler on Matlab with the command "mbuild -setup", yes?
Thank you
EDIT 1: Actually, I do have Visual Studio 2010, and I've changed the compiler to it via "mbuild -setup" but I keep getting the same message on lcc. What is going on?
EDIT 2: Ok, I see that "mex -setup" is the one I should have used instead of "mbuild -setup". But now I am actually getting errors on compilation. I will post this on a new question because the content is bigger than I should post on a comment window.
