[MATLAB R2014b] MEX config files for Intel Parallel Studio XE 2015

XML configuration files for compiling MATLAB MEX-files using Intel Parallel Studio XE 2015. Tested on Windows 8.1 64-bit with MATLAB R2014b, Visual Studio 2013, and Intel Parallel Studio XE 2015.

Here is an example:

>>> mex -f intel_cpp_15_vs2013.xml -v -largeArrayDims test.cpp
>>> test()
#include "mex.h"
void mexFunction(int nlhs, mxArray *plhs[], int nrhs, const mxArray*prhs[])
{
    plhs[0] = mxCreateDoubleScalar(10);
}

I can't tell you how much this helped, thank you!

Have you been able to set the new compiler setup as the default (so as to avoid having to write -f "path_to_xml_file" every time?

@andydonzelli thanks.
you could replace the XML files inside your profile folder winopen(prefdir) if you want to change the current default configuration (the files mex_C_win64.xml, mex_C++_win64.xml, and mex_FORTRAN_win64.xml)

Of course you will lose your changes if you run mex -setup after that..
