There are several ways; which one is "best" depends on the specific details
of your MATLAB and C++ codes.

* Create a MEX-file from your C++ file and call the MEX-file from within
* Create an Engine application and call MATLAB from your C++ code, or
* Use the SYSTEM function inside MATLAB to invoke the application compiled
from your C++ code, or
* Use MATLAB Coder to generate C++ code from your MATLAB code and stay
completely in C++, or
* Rewrite your C++ code in MATLAB or your MATLAB code in C++ manually

There are probably a few others I haven't thought of.
