Matlab and Octave MEX files compatibility

Hello, everyone!

I've used both Matlab and Octave for ages, but in the past few days I've
been trying to make their MEX files (and such) talk to each other. On
practically every forum I find people saying that they are compatible;
however, here's my problem:

Matlab compiles into MEX files having one of the following extensions:
.mexw32, .mexw64, .dll
Octave compiles and works with the following extensions: .oct, .mex

Is there any way to make Matlab make a proper .mex file that Octave would
read, or, alternatively, is there any way to make Octave run .mex32 files?
There probably is a simple solution, but I've been at this forever and I
just can't seem to figure it out. Simply renaming a .mexw32 file into .mex
does not work. In fact, both Matlab and Octave give errors when trying to
open it. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
