easy-as-pie API for Simulink models
slQuery is a "slickness-layer" ontop of the `find_system` and `get/set_param` API-functions and various related features of Simulink. It resulted from several inconveniences i had to deal with, while writing scripts that interact with and modify model structures.
Scripted manipulation of Simulink models had always required tons and tons of API-calls, awkward management of block handles vs. pathes, loops and subroutines for dealing with ports/lines or mux-/bus-signals. Dealing with Subsystem levels. In all this code, the main idea of what is being done cannot stand out clearly.
slQuery brings you two major tools that make scripted interaction with models a lot easier and cleaner.
1) slQuery is a query-language inspired by CSS/jQuery, XPath and regex that allows searching a loaded Simulink model for groups of blocks (called "situational patterns") that satisfy certain conditions and have certain relations to each other.
2) slQuery wraps arrays of Simulink block handles into lightweight "objects" that can be used to access block parameters and structural features in a syntactically pleasing way.
