Making async Requests Using mexCallMATLAB

Be aware of the behavior when calling back into MATLAB® using mexCallMATLAB with an async request like matlab::engine::MATLABEngine::fevalAsync. The mexCallMATLAB function is synchronous. After it launches a function using the call to fevalAsync, the MEX function continues to the end, returns to MATLAB, and is then unloaded. If the async processing of the requested feval command tries to reference the MEX function, it generates an exception.

Consider using the mexLock and mexUnLock functions to ensure that the MEX function stays in memory while the async function processes.
