Programming Considerations for Code Generation

MATLAB® programming considerations for code generation; behavior of generated code

Generating code from MATLAB for desktop and embedded systems enables you to perform your software design, implementation, testing, and deployment within the MATLAB environment. Due to differences in typing, array sizing, memory and other aspects of MATLAB and C/C++ languages, follow certain guidelines while designing your code in MATLAB for which you intend to generate C/C++ code. There are certain MATLAB language features that code generation does not support. Certain code generation optimizations can cause the generated code to behave differently than the source code. The code generation report and the MATLAB Coder™ app display the potential differences between generated code and MATLAB code.
