How to free memory from C-code in simulink embedded matlab code block
1 view (last 30 days)
I have an embedded matlab code block in a simulink simulation that makes calls to c functions to allocate memory and do some calculations. For example the code below: assume varA, varB are data structures created and allocated in C using the memallocfun function call.The types are defined in C.
persistent firstCall varA varB
varA = coder.opaque('somestruct1 *','NULL','HeaderFile','defs.h');
varB = coder.opaque('somestruct2 *','NULL','HeaderFile','defs.h');
This code works and runs properly. My issue is that after the simulation is done I'd like to free the memory that was allocated by memallocfun. Should I do that in the StopFcn callback? Will StopFcn have access to the persistent variables created here? Otherwise, where should I free the memory created by C?
