I am currently learning both C++ and matlab S-Function and these alike yet different data types confuse me.

int_T, real_T (upper case T) are data types used by MATLAB and Simulink and are defined in shipped file "tmwtypes.h". They prove more flexibility in terms of platform dependency. For example real_T can switch types for 32 or 64 bit systems. To define a custom S-Function in C, you need not use any of these data types and can use standard ones like int, double etc.
I think you can also use int_t (small case t) in your code as long as those definitions are provided to MATLAB.

Thank you! And no, I can not use the int_t and real_t in the S-function. Tried it. I think it's because it's been redefined in "tmwtypes.h"
