Model Configuration Parameters: Code Generation

The Code Generation category includes parameters for defining the code generation process including target selection. It also includes parameters for inserting comments and pragmas into the generated code for data and functions. These parameters require a Simulink® Coder™ license. Additional parameters available with an ERT-based target require an Embedded Coder® license. Generating CUDA® C++ code for NVIDIA® GPUs requires a GPU Coder™ license.

These configuration parameters appear in the Configuration Parameters > Code Generation general category.
