MATLAB and Simulink Requirements

Supported and Compatible Compilers - Mac

A number of MathWorks products or product features require that you have a third-party compiler installed on your system. The tables below outline the compilers that are supported by various MathWorks products. These compilers are provided by a number of vendors and are available under a variety of commercial, academic, or open source terms; visit the providers' websites for further information.

Please see Polyspace documentation for the list of compilers that Polyspace supports in the current release. See Supported Interfaces to Other Languages for information about using MATLAB with other programming languages.

Other Platforms: Windows | Linux


Mac

Note:

On macOS, no C compiler is supplied with MATLAB. If you use products that require one, Apple's development environment for macOS (Xcode) is available in the Mac App Store.

Notes for the Mac Platform

  1.  Fortran compilers are supported with Simulink only for creating Simulink S-functions using the MATLAB MEX command. The S-functions can be used with normal and accelerated simulations.
