Determine Output Type Using the Input Type

The following sample code from lines 242 through 260 of sfun_user_fxp_asr.c gives an example of using the data type of the input to your S-function to calculate the output data type. Notice that in this code

  • The output is signed or unsigned to match the input (a).

  • The output is the same word length as the input (b).

  • The fraction length of the output depends on the input fraction length and the number of shifts (c).

    static void mdlSetInputPortDataType(SimStruct *S, int port,
    					DTypeId dataTypeIdInput)
        if ( isDataTypeSupported( S, dataTypeIdInput ) )
            DTypeId dataTypeIdOutput;
            ssSetInputPortDataType( S, port, dataTypeIdInput );
            dataTypeIdOutput = ssRegisterDataTypeFxpBinaryPoint(
    			ssGetDataTypeFxpIsSigned( S, dataTypeIdInput ), (a)
    			ssGetDataTypeFxpWordLength( S, dataTypeIdInput ), (b)
    			ssGetDataTypeFractionLength( S, dataTypeIdInput )
    					- V_NUM_BITS_TO_SHIFT_RGHT, (c)
                0 /* false means do NOT obey data type override
    					           setting for this subsystem */ );
            ssSetOutputPortDataType( S, 0, dataTypeIdOutput );
