'Matlab Coder' generated code is NEVER of double type (only real_T)
38 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to convert a piece of matlab code into C++ code. I have one large vector (100+ elements) as input and one large vector as the output. Now, when I try to build the code using the Matlab Coder, while explicitly specifying that the input variable (u) is a DOUBLE, Matlab just seems to ignore my demands and does its own thing by creating the function with input variable of the type const real_T type instead.
This would not be so bad except that I need to use the resulting code with the Legacy_Code function in order to create an S Function. What can I do?

and see the "19" answer at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2386772/difference-between-float-and-double.
Notice that if you do not include the include file indicated there, you could go ahead with the legacy code tool and create the equivalence: http://www.mathworks.com/help/simulink/slref/legacy_code.html
legacy_code('compile', specs, compilerOptions)
So you could '-Dreal_T=double'

Also if you are using MATLAB Coder in R2013b, you can request that C built-in types be used in the generated code for LIB, DLL and EXE targets:
That will use 'double' rather than 'real_T' in the generated code.
