Simulink developers may use scope and display blocks during model development. However, these blocks sometimes get buried deep inside subsystems and consequently never removed during model clean-up. These lost blocks can effect the run-time of the model according to The Mathworks:

This m-class file loads a simulink model, searches it for scope and display blocks (including inside subsystems and masked blocks), and replaces each instance with a Terminator block. The reverse process is also possible should the user desire to recover the original scope & display blocks at some time in the future. This is done without disturbing the integrity of the simulink model itself or any other blocks within the model.

Includes a simulink model and an example of how to run the code.
