C/C++ Code Generation

Generate C code from MATLAB® code

Generate C/C++ source code, static libraries, dynamic libraries, or executables from MATLAB code using the MATLAB Coder™ app or the codegen command. You need MATLAB Coder to generate standalone C and C++ code for supported functions.

For a list of functions that support code generation, see Function List (C/C++ Code Generation).

Generate C Code at the Command Line (MATLAB Coder)

Generate C/C++ code from MATLAB code by using the codegen command.

Generate C Code by Using the MATLAB Coder App (MATLAB Coder)

Generate C/C++ code from MATLAB code by using the MATLAB Coder app.

Specifying Inputs in Code Generation from MATLAB

When you use Signal Processing Toolbox™ functions for code generation, you must define the size and type of the function inputs.
