Notes for the Solaris Platform

  1. You must install a C compiler to use LOADLIBRARY on a 64-bit platform.
  2. Includes Real-Time Workshop Embedded Coder and Stateflow Coder compiler support.
  3. When using C++, MATLAB and related products rely on the availability of exception handling in the C++ language. These compilers do not properly support C++ exception handling. Consequently, our support for exception handling is limited with these compilers. You can find more information in Solution 1-4OKNSV.
  4. There is a bug in the Sun Studio 11 cc/CC 5.8 compiler that can, in some instances, cause incorrect results. Sun has released Patch 120760-12 2007/03/19 to address the issue.  For more information, see Solution 1-431HK0.
  5. Fortran compilers are supported with Simulink® only for creating Simulink S-functions using the MATLAB® MEX command. The S-functions can be used with normal and accelerated simulations.
  6. Patch 124861-01 to the Sun Studio 12 cc/CC 5.9 compiler introduced a bug that can, in some instances, cause incorrect results. Sun has released Patch 124861-06 2008/05/06 to address the issue. For more information, see Solution 1-6IJJ4C.
