for numerical tests of a filter algorithm implemented in C++ (testing/simulation environment is a larger simulink project) I would like to switch to single precision variables. For the gcc/g++ the option -fshort-double seems to make switching to single precision very comfortable, because it basically shrinks doubles to the size of floats.
However I get the following warning when mexing the algorithm:
/opt/matlab/v24/simulink/include/simulink.c: In function ‘int_T ssWriteRTWParamSettings(SimStruct*, int_T, ...)’: /opt/matlab/v24/simulink/include/simulink.c:1538: warning: ‘real_T’ is promoted to ‘double’ when passed through ‘...’ /opt/matlab/v24/simulink/include/simulink.c:1538: note: (so you should pass ‘double’ not ‘real_T’ to ‘va_arg’) /opt/matlab/v24/simulink/include/simulink.c:1538: note: if this code is reached, the program will abort
As stated in the warning, the simulation doesn't run, but gives the error: Invalid sizes vector returned by MEX S-function
Can this be resolved or does anybody have an alternative way of testing an S-function with single precision.
