Matlab Coder : Size Mismatch Issue

I am using MATLAB coder to generate mex files for the matlab. Here is one error I am getting in line
x2_est_sym = x2_est_sym.';
Size mismatch (size [64 x 1] ~= size [:? x 64]).
The size to the left is the size of the left-hand side of the assignment.
Any idea.

As C is statically typed, MATLAB Coder needs to compute a static type for all variables in the program, which also involves computation of the size. MATLAB Coder sets the size of a variable when it is first used. As the variable x2_est_sym is used in the right hand side and its size at that point is (presumably) [64x1], its size is set to that value. The size of the expression x2_est_sym' is however [:?x64]. When you try to assign it back to x2_est_sym, there is a size mismatch.
It is hard to suggest a fix without looking at more of your code, but can you just use a different variable on the left hand side?

No Arnab, it was still not resolving the issue. My friend did a small little trick and it worked x2_est_sym = (x2_est_sym).'; . He just used a bracket and it was fine.

Hi Harshit, Can you please post a small code snippet that exhibits the behaviour you mentioned, i.e. gives an compiler error that disappears once you use the bracket? Also, please tell me the version of MATLAB you are using. It will be most helpful.
