Description

Various C Matrix API functions require or return an mxClassID argument. mxClassID identifies how the mxArray represents its data elements.

Constants

mxUNKNOWN_CLASS

Undetermined class. You cannot specify this category for an mxArray. However, if mxGetClassID cannot identify the class, it returns this value.

mxCELL_CLASS

Cell mxArray.

mxSTRUCT_CLASS

Structure mxArray.

mxLOGICAL_CLASS

Logical mxArray of mxLogical data.

mxCHAR_CLASS

String mxArray of mxChar data.

mxVOID_CLASS

Reserved.

mxDOUBLE_CLASS

Numeric mxArray of either real or complex data types.
