Examples

The intel_tc.m file from Add Custom Toolchains to MATLAB® Coder™ Build Process, uses the following lines to get and update one of the BuildTool objects, including the command pattern:

% ------------------------------
% C Compiler
% ------------------------------
 
tool = tc.getBuildTool('C Compiler');

tool.setName('Intel C Compiler');
tool.setCommand('icl');
tool.setPath('');

tool.setDirective('IncludeSearchPath','-I');
tool.setDirective('PreprocessorDefine','-D');
tool.setDirective('OutputFlag','-Fo');
tool.setDirective('Debug','-Zi');

tool.setFileExtension('Source','.c');
tool.setFileExtension('Header','.h');
tool.setFileExtension('Object','.obj');

tool.setCommandPattern('|>TOOL<| |>TOOL_OPTIONS<| |>OUTPUT_FLAG<||>OUTPUT<|');
