Class: Simulink.CodeImporter
Namespace: Simulink

Analyze custom code for functions, types, global variables, and their dependencies

Since R2021a



success = parse(obj), where obj is an object of Simulink.CodeImporter or sltest.CodeImporter class, parses the custom code, but does not re-parse the custom code if the custom code has been parsed previously and neither the custom code nor the settings of obj.CustomCode have changed since the previous parse. Results of a successful parse or error information from an unsuccessful parse are stored in the ParseInfo property of obj.

success = parse(obj, 'Force','On') parses the custom code irrespective of whether any changes have been made since a previous parse.

success = parse(obj, 'Force','Off') has the same effect as success = parse(obj).

Output Arguments
