## Matlab Fortran MEX setup

Demonstrate that Matlab MEX Fortran compiler wrapper is working on your system with the following commands. Ensure you are using a supported compiler with Matlab as the supported compilers are distinct across operating systems. These commands are all from within Matlab.

## Setup Matlab Fortran compiler

Configure Matlab for Fortran compiler:

```
mex -setup -v FORTRAN
```

Verify configuration by

```
mex.getCompilerConfigurations('FORTRAN')
```

## Example Fortran MEX

copy over an example Fortran program.

`copyfile(fullfile(matlabroot,'extern','examples','refbook','timestwo.F'), pwd) copyfile(fullfile(matlabroot,'extern','include','fintrf.h'), pwd)`

compile

`mex timestwo.F`

use the compiled code

`timestwo(3)`

ans = 6.0

## Notes

You may need additional Matlab compiler configuration if you get compiler errors like:

```
... Looking for folder 'libgfortranbegin.a' ...No.
Did not find installed compiler 'gfortran'.
Error using mex
No supported compiler or SDK was found. For options, visit

```

### Windows MEX Fortran

Matlab and Fortran on Windows can use the Intel Fortran compiler.

### Alternatives

GNU Octave and Gfortran MEX are available on Windows, MacOS and Linux.
