How to Imply the Input Array Dimensions to MATLAB Coder

Asked by Royi Avital on 14 Sep 2019

Assuming I have a simple function in MATLAB:
function [ mG ] = ProcessImage( mI ) %#codegen
mG = edge(mI, 'Sobel', [], 'both');
end
Now, I want to generate a C code from it.
I also want the C code to work on any 2D Image mI. Yet I don't know the size on compile time. So in C it is solved by sending the dimensions of the array as parameters to the function. Something like:
function [ mG ] = ProcessImage( mI, numRows, numCols ) %#codegen
mG = edge(mI, 'Sobel', [], 'both');
end
Now, my question is, how can I tell MATLAB Coder to understand those parametters are the size of the input image?

The closest you can do, I think, is this:
codegen ProcessImage -args {coder.typeof(uint(0), [Inf Inf]) } -config:lib
This would generate ProcessImage.c that takes an unbounded 2-d array of uint8 as input. Coder would also generate main.c (in the examples folder) that shows how to allocate and initialize the data structure that ProcessImage.c takes as input.
From there, you can write a simple wrapper that takes a pointer and two sizes and produces the emxArray_uint8_T data structure that coder-generated code takes as input. You can set the "canFreeData" to false and then you don't need to copy the actual values, can just copy your pointer into the emx structure.
