MATLAB has been recognized as the premier program for numerical computations and data visualization. Due to the fact that MATLAB is an interpreted language, M-files execute slower than compiled programs written in other languages. Furthermore, M-files require the presence of MATLAB to run. Recently, The Math Works introduced a set of tools to automatically convert M-files into C/C++ source code, which can then be compiled to produce stand-alone executable code. This paper discusses the features of the Compiler, describes the conversion process, and presents test results that compare execution times of M-files and C/C++ executable applications.
