Getting alloca to work in DLL

Hi,

I am using Visual C++ 6 to try to compile a C++ package called OpenNURBs into a DLL which can be opened by Matlab.

I am using the Matlab Add-on for Visual Studio, which lets you select "Matlab Project" as a new project. When compiling I get the error message:

"Error C2065: 'alloca' : undeclared identifier"

I figure I'm missing the C Run Time libraries. I've added msvcrt.lib to the Link settings for the project, but still no dice.

Any ideas?

There is no "alloca()" function in the VC++ runtime.  It's no wonder that the compiler is complaining about it.  Try alloc() instead.  

If you mean to use _alloca() then use that, but not alloca().
