pslinkoptions

Create an options object to customize configuration of a Simulink model, generated code or a S-Function block. Use the object to specify configuration options for these Simulink objects in a Polyspace run from the MATLAB command line

Description

example

opts = pslinkoptions(codegen) returns an options object with the configuration options for code generated by codegen.

example

opts = pslinkoptions(model) returns an options object with the configuration options for the Simulink® model.

opts = pslinkoptions(sfunc) returns an options object with the configuration options for the S-Function.

Note

Before you run Polyspace® from MATLAB®, you must link your Polyspace and MATLAB installations. See Integrate Polyspace with MATLAB and Simulink (Polyspace Bug Finder).

This example shows how you can create a generic Polyspace options object that is suitable for analyzing code generated by using Embedded Coder. This options object is prepopulated with appropriate Embedded Coder parameters. Edit the options object to modify the generic analysis.

Create a new Polyspace configuration object new_opt by calling the function pslinkoptions and specify 'ec' as the input argument.

new_opt = pslinkoptions('ec')
new_opt =

                    ResultDir: 'results_$ModelName$'
         VerificationSettings: 'PrjConfig'
           OpenProjectManager: 0
         AddSuffixToResultDir: 0
     EnableAdditionalFileList: 0
           AdditionalFileList: {}
             VerificationMode: 'BugFinder'
          EnablePrjConfigFile: 0
                PrjConfigFile: ''
         AddToSimulinkProject: 0
               InputRangeMode: 'DesignMinMax'
               ParamRangeMode: 'None'
              OutputRangeMode: 'None'
           ModelRefVerifDepth: 'Current model only'
      ModelRefByModelRefVerif: 0
                  AutoStubLUT: 1
      CxxVerificationSettings: 'PrjConfig'
    CheckConfigBeforeAnalysis: 'OnWarn'
        VerifAllSFcnInstances: 0

By default, this options object uses the same verification settings that you specify in the Polyspace project. To check MISRA C® 2012 coding rule violations in addition to the existing verifications specified in the project, run this code at the MATLAB command line:

new_opt.VerificationSettings = 'PrjConfigAndMisraC2012'
new_opt =

                    ResultDir: 'results_$ModelName$'
         VerificationSettings: 'PrjConfigAndMisraC2012'
           OpenProjectManager: 0
         AddSuffixToResultDir: 0
     EnableAdditionalFileList: 0
           AdditionalFileList: {}
             VerificationMode: 'BugFinder'
          EnablePrjConfigFile: 0
                PrjConfigFile: ''
         AddToSimulinkProject: 0
               InputRangeMode: 'DesignMinMax'
               ParamRangeMode: 'None'
              OutputRangeMode: 'None'
           ModelRefVerifDepth: 'Current model only'
      ModelRefByModelRefVerif: 0
                  AutoStubLUT: 1
      CxxVerificationSettings: 'PrjConfig'
    CheckConfigBeforeAnalysis: 'OnWarn'
        VerifAllSFcnInstances: 0

When you start the Polyspace analysis of the generated code, you might want to open the Polyspace User Interface to follow the progress of the and to review the results afterwards. To open the Polyspace interface when you start the analysis, run this code:

new_opt.OpenProjectManager = true
new_opt =

                    ResultDir: 'results_$ModelName$'
         VerificationSettings: 'PrjConfigAndMisraC2012'
           OpenProjectManager: 1
         AddSuffixToResultDir: 0
     EnableAdditionalFileList: 0
           AdditionalFileList: {}
             VerificationMode: 'BugFinder'
          EnablePrjConfigFile: 0
                PrjConfigFile: ''
         AddToSimulinkProject: 0
               InputRangeMode: 'DesignMinMax'
               ParamRangeMode: 'None'
              OutputRangeMode: 'None'
           ModelRefVerifDepth: 'Current model only'
      ModelRefByModelRefVerif: 0
                  AutoStubLUT: 1
      CxxVerificationSettings: 'PrjConfig'
    CheckConfigBeforeAnalysis: 'OnWarn'
        VerifAllSFcnInstances: 0

This example shows how you can store the Polyspace configurations of a Simulink model in to an object, and use the object to edit the configuration options.

Load the model closed_loop_control.

load_system('closed_loop_control');

To create an object containing the Polyspace configurations of the model, call pslinkoptions.

model_opt = pslinkoptions('closed_loop_control')
model_opt =

                    ResultDir: 'results_$ModelName$'
         VerificationSettings: 'PrjConfig'
           OpenProjectManager: 0
         AddSuffixToResultDir: 0
     EnableAdditionalFileList: 0
           AdditionalFileList: {}
             VerificationMode: 'BugFinder'
          EnablePrjConfigFile: 0
                PrjConfigFile: ''
         AddToSimulinkProject: 0
               InputRangeMode: 'DesignMinMax'
               ParamRangeMode: 'None'
              OutputRangeMode: 'None'
           ModelRefVerifDepth: 'Current model only'
      ModelRefByModelRefVerif: 0
                  AutoStubLUT: 1
      CxxVerificationSettings: 'PrjConfig'
    CheckConfigBeforeAnalysis: 'OnWarn'
        VerifAllSFcnInstances: 0

The model is already configured for Embedded Coder®, so only the Embedded Coder configuration options appear as the fields of the object model_opt.

To modify a Polyspace configuration option, set the corresponding field of model_opt. For instance, change the results directory and set the verification mode to CodeProver by modifying fields : model_opt.ResultDir and model_opt.VerificationMode, respectively.

model_opt.ResultDir = 'results_v1_$ModelName$';
model_opt.VerificationMode = 'CodeProver'
model_opt =

                    ResultDir: 'results_v1_$ModelName$'
         VerificationSettings: 'PrjConfig'
           OpenProjectManager: 0
         AddSuffixToResultDir: 0
     EnableAdditionalFileList: 0
           AdditionalFileList: {}
             VerificationMode: 'CodeProver'
          EnablePrjConfigFile: 0
                PrjConfigFile: ''
         AddToSimulinkProject: 0
               InputRangeMode: 'DesignMinMax'
               ParamRangeMode: 'None'
              OutputRangeMode: 'None'
           ModelRefVerifDepth: 'Current model only'
      ModelRefByModelRefVerif: 0
                  AutoStubLUT: 1
      CxxVerificationSettings: 'PrjConfig'
    CheckConfigBeforeAnalysis: 'OnWarn'
        VerifAllSFcnInstances: 0

Create a Polyspace® options object called new_opt with TargetLink® parameters:

new_opt = pslinkoptions('tl')
new_opt =

                   ResultDir: 'results_$ModelName$'
        VerificationSettings: 'PrjConfig'
          OpenProjectManager: 0
        AddSuffixToResultDir: 0
    EnableAdditionalFileList: 0
          AdditionalFileList: {}
            VerificationMode: 'CodeProver'
         EnablePrjConfigFile: 0
               PrjConfigFile: ''
        AddToSimulinkProject: 0
              InputRangeMode: 'DesignMinMax'
              ParamRangeMode: 'None'
             OutputRangeMode: 'None'
                 AutoStubLUT: 1

Set the OpenProjectManager option to true to follow the progress in the Polyspace interface. Also change the configuration to check for both run-time errors and MISRA C® coding rule violations:

new_opt.OpenProjectManager = true;
new_opt.VerificationSettings = 'PrjConfigAndMisra'
new_opt =

                   ResultDir: 'results_$ModelName$'
        VerificationSettings: 'PrjConfigAndMisra'
          OpenProjectManager: 1
        AddSuffixToResultDir: 0
    EnableAdditionalFileList: 0
          AdditionalFileList: {}
            VerificationMode: 'CodeProver'
         EnablePrjConfigFile: 0
               PrjConfigFile: ''
        AddToSimulinkProject: 0
              InputRangeMode: 'DesignMinMax'
              ParamRangeMode: 'None'
             OutputRangeMode: 'None'
                 AutoStubLUT: 1
