Create target object



targetObject = target.create(targetType) creates and returns an object of the specified class.


targetObject = target.create(targetType,Name,Value) configures the object using one or more name-value arguments.


Input Arguments

collapse all

Specify class of object. For example, specifying:

  • 'Processor' creates a target.Processor object.

  • 'LanguageImplementation' creates a target.LanguageImplementation object.

  • 'Alias' creates a target.Alias object.

For the full list of supported types, see target.

Example: 'Processor'

Name-Value Arguments

Specify optional pairs of arguments as Name1=Value1,...,NameN=ValueN, where Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the pairs does not matter.

Before R2021a, use commas to separate each name and value, and enclose Name in quotes.

Example: myProc = target.create('Processor', 'Name', 'myProcessor', 'Manufacturer', 'myProcessorManufacturer');

Create a target object by copying values from an existing target object. For example:

myLangImp = target.create('LanguageImplementation', ...
                          'Name', 'myLanguageImplementation', ...
                          'Copy', 'ARM Compatible-ARM Cortex');

Add a prefix to the IDs generated by target.create.

Create the target object with properties that are set to values that you specify.

Output Arguments
