MATLAB Language Features Supported for C/C++ Code Generation

MATLAB Features That Code Generation Supports

Code generation from MATLAB® code supports many major language features including:

MATLAB Language Features That Code Generation Does Not Support

Code generation from MATLAB does not support the following frequently used MATLAB features (this list is not exhaustive):

  • scripts

  • implicit expansion

    Code generation does not support implicit expansion of arrays with compatible sizes during execution of element-wise operations or functions. If your MATLAB code relies on implicit expansion, code generation results in a size-mismatch error. For fixed-size arrays, the error occurs at compile time. For variable-size arrays, the error occurs at run time. For more information about implicit expansion, see Compatible Array Sizes for Basic Operations. For code generation, to achieve implicit expansion, use bsxfun.

  • GPU arrays

    MATLAB Coder™ does not support GPU arrays. However, if you have GPU Coder™, you can generate CUDA® MEX code that takes GPU array inputs.

  • calendarDuration arrays

  • Java®

  • Map containers

  • time series objects

  • try/catch statements

  • import statements

  • Function argument validation
