Replacement Name: boolean

Description

Specify names for built-in Simulink® data types in generated code.

Category: Code Generation > Data Type Replacement

Settings

Default: ''

If a value is not specified, the code generator uses the Code Generation Name, boolean_T.

Specify character vectors for the code generator to use as names for built-in Simulink data types.

For ERT S-functions, the replacement data type can be only an 8-bit integer, int8, or uint8.

Specify the replacement name as one of the following:

  • A Simulink.AliasType object.

  • A Simulink.NumericType object.

  • The Simulink Name built-in data type name.

To replace the Code Generation Name boolean_T:

  • For a Simulink.AliasType object, set the BaseType object property to boolean, uint8 , int8, or intn, where n is the number of bits set for Configuration Parameters > Hardware Implementation > Number of bits: int. Specify the name of the Simulink.AliasType object in the Replacement Name column.

  • For a Simulink.NumericType object, to replace real_T, set the DataTypeMode object property to Boolean. Specify the name of the Simulink.NumericType object in the Replacement Name column.

  • To use the Simulink Name built-in data type name which matches the Code Generation name, in the Replacement Name column, specify uint8, int8, or intn, where n is the number of bits set for Configuration Parameters > Hardware Implementation > Number of bits: int.

An error occurs, if:

  • A replacement data type specification is inconsistent with the Simulink Name data type.

  • The Simulink.AliasType object has the Data scope parameter set to Exported.

Dependency

Replace data type names in the generated code enables this parameter.
