LibGetCallerClockTickCounter(sfcnBlock)

For use by asynchronous S-functions with function call outputs. Asynchronous tasks can manage their own time. LibGetCallerClockTickCounter is used to access an upstream asynchronous task's time counter. This is preferred when being driven by another asynchronous rate (e.g., an Interrupt block driving a Task block) because the time the interrupt occurred is used, rather than the time the task is allowed to run.

Returns

Returns a string for the counter variable for the upstream asynchronous task.

See LibGetCallerClockTickCounter in asynclib.tlc.

LibGetCallerClockTickCounterHigh(sfcnBlock)

For use by asynchronous S-functions with function-call outputs. Asynchronous tasks can manage their own time. LibGetCallerClockTickCounterHigh is used to access the high word of an upstream asynchronous task's time counter. This is preferred when being driven by another asynchronous rate (for example, an Interrupt block driving a Task block) because the time the interrupt occurred is used rather than the time the Task is allowed to run.

Returns

Returns a string for the high word of the counter variable for the upstream asynchronous task.

See LibGetCallerClockTickCounterHigh in asynclib.tlc.

LibGetDataTypeComplexNameFromId(id)

Returns the name of the complex data type corresponding to a data type ID. For example, if id==tSS_DOUBLE then LibGetDataTypeComplexNameFromId returns "creal_T".

See LibGetDataTypeComplexNameFromId in dtypelib.tlc.

LibGetDataTypeEnumFromId(id)

Returns the data type enum corresponding to a data type ID. For example, if id==tSS_DOUBLE, then enum is "SS_DOUBLE". If id does not correspond to a built-in data type, LibGetDataTypeEnumFromId returns "".

See LibGetDataTypeEnumFromId in dtypelib.tlc.

LibGetDataTypeIdAliasedThruToFromId(id)

Returns the data type IdAliasedThruTo that corresponds to a data type ID. For example, if yourfloat is an alias to myfloat, and myfloat is an alias to double, then the IdAliasedThruTo for both yourfloat and myfloat is 0 (because the ID for double is 0).

See LibGetDataTypeIdAliasedThruToFromId in dtypelib.tlc.

LibGetDataTypeIdAliasedToFromId(id)

Returns the data type IdAliasedTo that corresponds to a data type ID. For example, if yourfloat is an alias to myfloat, and myfloat is an alias to double, then the IdAliasedTo for yourfloat is the ID for myfloat, and the IdAliasedTo for myfloat is 0 (because the ID for double is 0).

See LibGetDataTypeIdAliasedToFromId in dtypelib.tlc.

LibGetDataTypeIdResolvesToFromId(id)

Returns the data type IdResolvesTo that corresponds to a data type ID.

See LibGetDataTypeIdResolvesToFromId in dtypelib.tlc.

Returns

The block record of the downstream function-call subsystem connected to that element (call index).

See LibGetFcnCallBlock in asynclib.tlc.

LibGetRecordDataTypeId(rec)

Returns the data type identifier of the specified record as an integer.

See LibGetRecordDataTypeId in dtypelib.tlc.

LibGetRecordDimensions(rec)

Returns the dimensions of the specified record as a vector of integers.

LibGetRecordWidth(rec)

Returns the width of the specified record as an integer.

See LibGetRecordWidth in dtypelib.tlc.

LibGetT()

Returns a string to access the absolute time, which is a floating-point number. However, if you have configured the model for integer-only code generation (by deselecting Support floating-point numbers), the string represents an integer equal to the number of base rate ticks (the absolute time divided by the base sample time) rather than the absolute time.

You should use LibGetT to access time only.

LibGetT is the TLC version of the SimStruct macro ssGetT.

See LibGetT in utillib.tlc.

LibIsComplex(arg)

Returns 1 if the argument passed in is complex, 0 otherwise.

See LibIsComplex in utillib.tlc.

LibIsFirstInitCond()

LibIsFirstInitCond returns generated code intended for placement in the initialization function. This code determines, during run-time, whether the initialization function is being called for the first time.

LibIsFirstInitCond also sets a flag that tells the code generator if it needs to declare and maintain the first-initialize-condition flag.

LibIsFirstInitCond is the TLC version of the SimStruct macro ssIsFirstInitCond.

See LibIsFirstInitCond in syslib.tlc.

LibIsMajorTimeStep()

Returns a string to access whether the current simulation step is a major time step.

LibIsMajorTimeStep is the TLC version of the SimStruct macro ssIsMajorTimeStep.

See LibIsMajorTimeStep in utillib.tlc.

LibIsMinorTimeStep()

Returns a string to access whether the current simulation step is a minor time step.

LibIsMinorTimeStep is the TLC version of the SimStruct macro ssIsMinorTimeStep.

See LibIsMinorTimeStep in utillib.tlc.

LibManageAsyncCounter(sfcnBlock, callIdx)

For use by asynchronous S-Functions with function-call outputs. Asynchronous tasks can manage their own time, and use LibManageAsyncCounter to determine whether a need exists for an asynchronous counter to manage its own timer.

Example

%if LibManageAsyncCounter(block,callIdx)
  %%	  %<LibSetAsyncCounter(block,callIdx), CodeGetCounter)>

where CodeGetCounter is target specific code reading hardware timer.

Example

%if LibNeedAsyncCounter(block,0)
  %<LibSetAsyncCounter(block,0), "tickGet()")>

Returns

Returns TLC_TRUE if an asynchronous counter is required, otherwise TLC_FALSE.

LibTIDInSystem(system, fcnType)

Purpose

Returns a task identifier (TID) if it is in the scope of a subsystem function and can be called before or during TLC generating code.

Syntax

LibTIDInSystem(system, fcnType)

Arguments

system

A record within the global CompiledModel record.

fcnType

One of the following: 'Output', 'Update', 'Outputupdate'.

Description

This function returns a TID if it is in the scope of a subsystem function and can be called before or during TLC generating code. It returns the TID argument name, if a TID is passed as argument in the system function scope. If TID is not passed as argument in the scope, this function returns:

  • '0' if model is single tasking.

  • The TID value of the subsystem if the subsystem is single rate.

  • A local TID variable name, if the subsystem is multirate. A local TID variable is added to the subsystem code.

Note

This function issue an error message if it is called for a reusable subsystem whose instances run at different rates.

See LibTIDInSystem in syslib.tlc.

LibIsRowMajor

Returns true when the current model uses the row-major array layout.
