mdlStart

Initialize the state vectors of this C MEX S-function

Required

No

Languages

C, C++

Syntax

#define MDL_START
void mdlStart(SimStruct *S)

Arguments

S

SimStruct representing an S-Function block.

Description

The Simulink® engine invokes this optional method at the beginning of a simulation. The method performs initialization activities that this S-function requires only once, such as setting up user data or initializing states.

This method is called at the start of every successive simulation in Fast Restart mode, and it performs tasks that are required for every run. In contrast, mdlSetupRuntimeResources performs tasks once in Fast Restart mode and the results of those tasks done are reused by successive simulations.

If your S-function resides in an enabled subsystem and needs to reinitialize its states every whenever the subsystem is enabled, use mdlInitializeConditions to initialize the state values, instead of mdlStart.

In C MEX S-functions, use ssGetContStates and/or ssGetDiscStates to get the states.

Example

See sfun_directlook.c for an example of how to use this function.
