    This mex file will create a MATLAB function called example_mex_class.  If you call it
    with no arguments it will output the MATLAB .m code to create a MATLAB wrapper class.
    Paste that code into a .m file.  Then you will be able to work with this C++ class
    directly in MATLAB.

    // The class must have a default constructor.  It's also the only kind of constructor
    // you can call from MATLAB.
        xx = 1;

    // The rest of the member functions that you want to bind have to return void and
    // generally have the same syntax limitations as regular mex funcitons.

    // saveobj() and load_obj() are special functions. If you provide these then you will
    // be able to save() and load() your objects using MATLAB's built in object
    // serialization.
