Calling Matlab From C

Hello All,
   I have a prog in C which outputs few arrays... I have worked the C-prog on Visual Studio... The arrays are then loaded into matlab to plot a graph... I don't want to execute 2 programs.. I want to know how can i call a m- file from C. Since studio doesn't support graphics.h, how can i plot???
TIA
-SUma

its been a while since I've looked at this, but it is possible to generate C code from your M-Code (I've definitely done this), and also vice versa.

using the program "mcc" you can convert .m files to .c files, and then compile these. I'm not sure if this can be done with the graphing engine, I used it before to prototype mathematical models in Matlab, and then compile C code and wrap the resulting library code to a native application... MCC can be used to generate complete application, or just library code, have a look at the documentation...

Also, I think there's been some work with SWIG (interface wrapping software, www.swig.org)...

sorry, as I said, its been a while (3+years!)...

Not sure exactly what you're looking for here, but....

Once you write your arrays to files (and close the files) you could use the system() function to run Matlab.
