Why are "test points" used in Code Generation ?
7 views (last 30 days)
above site, Documentation is saying that
"Test points are primarily intended for use when generating code from a model with Simulink Coder™. For more information about test points in the context of code generation, see Appearance of Test Points in the Generated Code (Simulink Coder)."
But I couldn't know how and why test points are used when we generate code, eventhough I follow the recommended URL and read that.
Therefore, I'd like to know the usage of test point in code generation step.

A test point results in a dedicated variable in the generated code that can then be monitored. Otherwise, Simulink Coder will try to use/reuse local variables to hold the values of intermediate signals in the Simulink model. The dedicated variable can the observed with a debugger or other similar types of tools to determine proper behavior of the generated code.
