A user-friendly Blockset for embedding real time Simulink designs on the LEGO Mindstorms NXT brick.

lrt_make_rtw_hook(hookMethod, modelName, rtwroot, templateMakefile, buildOpts, buildArgs, buildInfo)
function lrt_make_rtw_hook(hookMethod, modelName, rtwroot, templateMakefile, buildOpts, buildArgs, buildInfo) %#ok<INUSL>
% AUTOSAR_MAKE_RTW_HOOK - This is the standard ERT hook file for the RTW build
% process (make_rtw).
% This hook file (i.e., file that implements various RTW callbacks) is
% called by RTW for system target file ert.tlc.  The file leverages
% strategic points of the RTW process.  A brief synopsis of the callback
% API is as follows:
% autosar_make_rtw_hook(hookMethod, modelName, rtwroot, templateMakefile,
%                   buildOpts, buildArgs)
% hookMethod:
%   Specifies the stage of the RTW build process.  Possible values are
%   entry, before_tlc, after_tlc, before_make, after_make and exit, etc.
% modelName:
%   Name of model.  Valid for all stages.
% rtwroot:
%   Reserved.
% templateMakefile:
%   Name of template makefile.  Valid for stages 'before_make' and 'exit'.
% buildOpts:
%   Valid for stages 'before_make' and 'exit', a MATLAB structure
%   containing fields
%   modules:
%     Char array specifying list of generated C files: model.c, model_data.c,
%     etc.
%   codeFormat:
%     Char array containing code format: 'RealTime', 'RealTimeMalloc',
%     'Embedded-C', and 'S-Function'
%   noninlinedSFcns:
%     Cell array specifying list of non-inlined S-Functions.
%   compilerEnvVal:
%     String specifying compiler environment variable value, e.g.,
%     D:\Applications\Microsoft Visual
% buildArgs:
%   Char array containing the argument to make_rtw.  When pressing the build
%   button through the Configuration Parameter Dialog, buildArgs is taken
%   verbatim from whatever follows make_rtw in the make command edit field.
%   From MATLAB, it's whatever is passed into make_rtw.  For example, itsmodelName= deblank(s(5:end));
%   'optimized_fixed_point=1' for make_rtw('optimized_fixed_point=1').
%   This file implements these buildArgs:
%     optimized_fixed_point=1
%     optimized_floating_point=1
% You are encouraged to add other configuration options, and extend the
% various callbacks to fully integrate ERT into your environment.
