How do I convert my MATLAB code to a C++ code?

Ameer Hamza on 20 Apr 2018

You will need MATLAB Coder to perform the conversion. If it is already installed, you can use MATLAB coder app under Apps tab in MATLAB. It will guide you through steps to generate C or C++ code.

Yes, mex files are platform specific. I think that the generated C code should work on other platforms too, but I am not entirely sure.

I want to Change MATLAB code to C++ can anyone tell me how can I convert this? I am working on phase field simulation

As mentioned above, please use MATLAB Coder - MATLAB (mathworks.com) for the purpose.
