h2. Overview

Before you install SMALLbox you need to have MATLAB correctly installed and to make sure *mex* is working correctly.

h2. MEX setup

After installing MATLAB, you need to make sure you are able to build MEX-files. To do this you need a working C compiler.

h3. Mac OS X

On OS X you can get need to install Xcode in order to have a C compiler with Xcode. compiler.

h3. Windows

h4. 32-bit

On 32-bit versions of Microsoft Windows, MATLAB provides a C compiler, Lcc.

h4. 64-bit

To be completed.

h3. Configuring Matlab for MEX-files Testing mex

If you are using the MEX compiler for the first time, run "mex -setup" or type "help mex" in the MATLAB command prompt before trying to install SMALLbox.


To install the toolbox run the script SMALLboxSetup.m from the MATLAB command prompt and follow the instructions. @SmallboxSetup.m@ is in the root SMALLbox directory. The SMALLbox installation involves the automatic download of several existing toolboxes. Due to the automatic download of toolboxes you must have an *active internet connection*.

Please note that within the toolboxes are several MEX components that must be compiled. If you do not already have MEX setup, run "mex -setup" or type "help mex" in the MATLAB command prompt.
Once installed, there are two optional demo functions that can be run. Further information can be found in the README.txt in the main SMALLbox directory.
