(At least) the following functions are defined with external linkage, although they are just internal helpers:

- print_null
- print_string_matlab
- exit_with_help
- do_cross_validation

- print_null
- predict
- exit_with_help

Typically, anything but mexFunction should be declared with internal linkage (i.e. either as "static" or within an anonymous namespace (C++ only)).

This allows the compiler to generate better code and avoids exposing internal symbols.
