Create C/C++ S-Functions

Write S-functions using C or C++ code

You can create C/C++ S-functions by writing an S-function from scratch, using the S-function builder, or using the Legacy Code Tool. Each of these approaches involves a tradeoff between the ease of writing an S-function and the features supported by the S-function.
