Jorn and Eelke discovered two mex related problems in Tuebingen. There might be more lurking, because we only test on a limited platform. I suggest to review the full list of mex files, mex-alternatives (i.e. the m-file) and try to make it as complete as possible. That involves distributing the work for various platforms over different users, but ensuring that the same test procedure is used for all. It does not lend itself for automated testing, but the procedure should be reproducible in the future. E.g. 1) copy all mex files into one directory. 2) copy all corresponding m-files in one directory. 3) restoredefaultpath, cd into that directory 4) run a test script 5) remove the mex files for the specific platform 6) repeat the test script There should not be an error anywhere and the mex outcome should be identical to the m-outcome (if there is a m-outcome).
