Hi still am having doubt like what is STDOUT file means? %<theStuff>, I used my files and data but am getting error in this values. Please explain me specifically?
%selectfile STDOUT
The value of YourRecord.theStuff is: %<theStuff>
%closefile STDOUT

are you able to get the following example to work? if not, tell which error you get?
The following listing is polymorph.tlc.
%%polymorph.tlc
%language "C"
%%create records used as scopes within the dispatched functions
%createrecord MyRecord { Type "MyBlock"; data 123 }
%createrecord YourRecord { Type "YourBlock"; theStuff 666 }
%%dispatch the functions thru the GENERATE call.
%%dispatch to MyBlock implementation
%<GENERATE(MyRecord, "aFunc")>
%%dispatch to YourBlock implementation
%<GENERATE(YourRecord, "aFunc")>
%%end of polymorph.tlc
The following listing is MyBlock.tlc.
%%MyBlock.tlc
%implements "MyBlock" "C"
%%aFunc is invoked thru a GENERATE call in polymorph.tlc.
%%MyRecord is in generate scope in this function.
%%Therefore, fields of MyRecord can be referenced without
%%qualification
%function aFunc(r) Output
%selectfile STDOUT
The value of MyRecord.data is: %<data>
%closefile STDOUT
%endfunction
%%end of MyBlock.tlc
The following listing is YourBlock.tlc.
%%YourBlock.tlc
%implements "YourBlock" "C"
%%aFunc is invoked thru a GENERATE call in polymorph.tlc.
%%YourRecord is in generate scope in this function.
%%Therefore, fields of YourRecord can be referenced without
%%qualification
%function aFunc(r) Output
%selectfile STDOUT
The value of YourRecord.theStuff is: %<theStuff>
%closefile STDOUT
%endfunction
%%end of YourBlock.tlc
The invocation and output of polymorph.tlc, as displayed on the MATLAB console, are shown below:
tlc -v polymorph.tlc
The value of MyRecord.data is: 123
The value of YourRecord.theStuff is: 666
We use in this case STDOUT file to print values to the matlab window.
Which error you got?
