mexUnlock (C and Fortran)

Allow clearing MEX file from memory

C Syntax

#include "mex.h"
void mexUnlock(void);

Fortran Syntax

#include "fintrf.h"
subroutine mexUnlock()


By default, MEX files are unlocked, meaning you can clear them at any time. Calling mexLock locks a MEX file so that you cannot clear it from memory. Call mexUnlock to remove the lock.

mexLock increments a lock count. If you called mexLock n times, call mexUnlock n times to unlock your MEX file.
