Access derivatives from Embedded Coder

Asked by Etienne Coetzee

on 10 Nov 2013

Hi Folks

I am trying to access the derivative values from code generated by embedded coder. I have a Fortran program that is linked to a c-function via the ISO_C_BINDING module (below). I am now trying to link this function to the generated code from embedded coder. When I define the derivative values in C in the below function, the program works correctly. I then generate code from a Simulink model that contains the same derivative definitions, but cannot figure out if I have implemented the code in the best way. I have included the code below. It seems to work, but I am having to initialise the model on each iteration, which does not seem correct. I cannot figure out why. I have initialised it before this function call as well, but this doe not work, hence I have to initialise on each iteration. The code also does not work when running with OpenMP, even though the original C-code does work with OpenMP. Any help or examples will be appreciated.

Cheers, Etienne
