Update file separator character for file lists in build information



updateFileSeparator(buildinfo,separator) changes instances of the current file separator (/ or \) in the build information to the specified file separator.

The default value for the file separator matches the value returned by the MATLAB® command filesep. For template makefile (TMF) approach builds, you can override the default by defining a separator with the MAKEFILE_FILESEP macro in the template makefile. If the GenerateMakefile parameter is set, the code generator overrides the default separator and updates the build information after evaluating the PostCodeGenCommand configuration parameter.
