Configure Embedded Coder Dictionary

Since R2019b


An object of the coder.Dictionary class represents an Embedded Coder Dictionary. Use the object to perform operations on the Embedded Coder Dictionary, such as load packages of definitions and gain access to sections of the dictionary.

A coder.Dictionary object contains three coder.dictionary.Section objects, which represent the sections of an Embedded Coder Dictionary: Storage Classes, Memory Sections, and Function Customization Templates. A coder.dictionary.Section object contains coder.dictionary.Entry objects, which represent the definitions stored in that section of the Embedded Coder Dictionary. The name of the section identifies the type of code definitions that the section contains. To access the sections of an Embedded Coder Dictionary, use a coder.Dictionary object. To access the dictionary entries within the section, use a coder.dictionary.Section object.
