Variable-Size Data

Variable-size data for code acceleration, dynamic memory allocation

Variable-size data is data whose size is not known at compile time or changes at run time. To use variable-size data in your MATLAB® code which you intend to accelerate or convert, follow the described guidelines. Certain restrictions apply to the use of variable-size data in MATLAB code that is intended for algorithm acceleration or fixed-point conversion.
