There are special considerations when you create MATLAB® functions that are intended for code generation. These include certain
restrictions when you use
varargout, recursive functions, anonymous functions, and
nested functions. To generate code for MATLAB recursive functions, the code generator uses either compile-time
recursion or run-time recursion. To produce efficient C/C++ code, the code generator
sometimes creates multiple versions of a function, referred to as function
specializations. In certain cases, you can prevent the code generator from creating
function specializations by using
coder.ignoreSize. While generating a MEX function, you can bypass
code generation for a specific function in your MATLAB code and instead use the MATLAB engine to execute the call. To do this, use the
|Declare function as extrinsic and execute it in MATLAB|
|Prevent use of constant value of expression for function specializations|
|Prevent code generator from creating function specializations for constant-size expressions (Since R2019b)|
|Validate that value lies on the complex plane (Since R2023b)|
|Validate that value is a compile-time constant (Since R2023b)|
|Disable implicit expansion within the specified function in the generated code (Since R2021b)|
|Apply element-wise binary operations without implicit expansion (Since R2021b)|
|Specify that value is a GPU input to an entry-point function for GPU code generation (Since R2023b)|
- Compilation Directive %#codegen
Indicate that a MATLAB function is intended for code generation.
- Generate Code With Implicit Expansion Enabled
The code generator introduces modifications in the generated code to accomplish implicit expansion.

- Code Generation for Recursive Functions
Use recursive functions in MATLAB code that is intended for code generation.
- Force Code Generator to Use Run-Time Recursion
Rewrite your MATLAB code so that the code generator uses run-time recursion instead of compile-time recursion.
