Mex, *.cpp not found

2 views (last 30 days)
I am new to the mex stuff, dont know much about it. I tried compiling a cpp file and got a error.
mex estpab.cpp
C:\PROGRA~1\MATLAB\R2011A\BIN\MEX.PL: Error: 'estpab.cpp' not found.
??? Error using ==> mex at 208 Unable to complete successfully.
I have the cpp file in the folder that is added to the matlabpath. I dont know where I am supposed to place the file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

I believe that it is not sufficient that the folder be on the path: I believe you need to be cd()'d to the folder if you do not give the full path to the file.
