Supported and Compatible Compilers for R2019b - All Products

A number of MathWorks products or product features require that you have a third-party compiler installed on your system. The tables below outline the compilers that are supported by various MathWorks products. These compilers are provided by a number of vendors and are available under a variety of commercial, academic, or open source terms; visit the providers' websites for further information.

Please see Polyspace documentation for the list of compilers that Polyspace supports in the current release. See Supported Interfaces to Other Languages for information about using MATLAB with other programming languages.

 

MinGW is a supported C/C++ compiler which is available free of charge.

Note:

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 is supported as of R2019b. (Support for MEX and S-Functions were included with R2019a Update 3)
  • Intel Parallel Studio XE 2015 for C/C++ and Fortran are not supported as of R2019b.
  • Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 for C/C++ and Fortran are not supported as of R2019b.

Notes for the Windows Platform

  1. The corresponding version of Visual Studio Community is reported to work. Full support for Visual Studio Community has not been qualified by MathWorks.
  2. Microsoft Windows SDK 10 is required to use MinGW with this product. See Answer 355476 for more details.
  3. Intel compilers require that Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 or 2017 also be installed on your system.
  4. To build .NET components, a Microsoft .NET Framework must be installed. The .NET Framework v3.0 does not contain a framework-specific compiler; compatible components can be built using the v2.0 compiler. The .NET Framework is automatically installed by Visual Studio. It can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Web site. To execute applications that use the resulting .NET components, the target machine must have the matching .NET Framework installed.
  5. MATLAB Compiler SDK supports building .NET assemblies but not COM objects when using the Microsoft .NET Framework SDK without Microsoft Visual Studio.
  6. This compiler does not support OpenMP. Code generation will treat parfor-loops as for-loops.
  7. Fortran compilers are supported with Simulink only for creating Simulink S-Functions using the MATLAB MEX command. The S-Functions can be used with normal and accelerated simulations.
  8. Simulink Real-Time supports Fortran code in Simulink models using C-MEX wrapper S-Functions.
  9. When building Excel add-ins for MPS, MATLAB Compiler SDK requires .NET framework 4.0 or later.
  10. A compiler is not installed by default with this version of Visual Studio and must be specified while performing a custom installation. See Answer 328432 for more details.
  11. Visual Studio 2017 can be downloaded from the Visual Studio documentation. Community, Professional, and Enterprise editions are supported. The Visual Studio installer groups functionality into workloads; the "Desktop development with C++" workload is required for MEX and associated functionality.
  12. See Answer 348269 for instructions on how to set up Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 for use with Simulink Real-Time.

Note:

  • Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 for Fortran is not supported as of R2019b.
  • Intel Parallel Studio XE 2015 for Fortran is not supported as of R2019b.

macOS

On macOS, no C compiler is supplied with MATLAB. If you use products that require one, Apple's development environment for macOS (Xcode) is available in the Mac App Store.

Notes for the Mac Platform

  1. This compiler does not support OpenMP. Code generation will treat parfor-loops as for-loops.
  2. Fortran compilers are supported with Simulink only for creating Simulink S-functions using the MATLAB MEX command. The S-functions can be used with normal and accelerated simulations.

Linux (64-bit)

On Linux, no C compiler is supplied with MATLAB. The GNU compiler (GCC) is included with many Linux distributions.
