Check file names
Guideline: ar_0001: Usable characters for file names
Checks whether file names adhere to the following guideline standards.
Do not begin with a number.
Do not begin or end with an underscore.
Do not contain consecutive underscores.
Do not coincide with reserved MATLAB® words.
Contain only alphanumeric characters and underscores.
Are not the same as other file names in the MATLAB path.
This check only runs on the directory where the model is located. This behaviour does not change when the current directory is changed.
This check does not run on the nested sub-directories.
Reserved MATLAB words include the following:
Functions in the MATLAB path: Functions List
Reserved Keywords (Embedded Coder)
This check requires a Simulink® Check™ license.
This check contains sub-checks that correspond to sub IDs specified in the MAB and JMAAB modeling guidelines. You can use the Model Advisor Configuration Editor to specify which sub IDs (one or multiple) to execute.
For reference, the MAB guideline sub ID(s) that are recommended for use by the NA-MAAB and JMAAB modeling standards organizations are:
NA-MAAB — a, b, c, d, e, f
JMAAB — a, b, c, d, e, f
Results and Recommended Actions
|Guideline Sub ID||Condition||Recommended Action|
|ar_0001_a: Characters allowed for file names||One or more files have invalid names.||Use alphanumeric characters and underscores in file names.|
|ar_0001_b: Number at the beginning||One or more file names begin with a number.||Use alphabetic characters at the beginning of file names.|
|ar_0001_c: Underscore at the beginning||One or more file names begin with an underscore.||Use alphabetic characters at the beginning of file names.|
|ar_0001_d: Underscore at the end||One or more file names end with an underscore.||Do not end file names with underscores.|
|ar_0001_e: Consecutive underscores||One or more file names have consecutive underscores.||Do not use consecutive underscores in file names.|
|ar_0001_f: Single reserved MATLAB word||The file name is a reserved MATLAB word.||Do not use reserved MATLAB words as file names.|
|ar_0001_g: Identical file names on path||Two or more file names are identical in the MATLAB path.||Use unique file names.|
Capabilities and Limitations
Use the input parameter Check hidden folders to run the check on hidden folders.
Use the input parameter File Extension to check file names with specific extensions.
Does not flag conflicts with C++ keywords.
Runs on library models.
