Dimensional analysis and unit conversion options


The SimBiology® CompileOptions property is an object that defines the compile options available for simulation; you can specify whether dimensional analysis and unit conversion is necessary for simulation. Compile options are checked during compile time. The compile options object can be accessed through the CompileOptions property of the configset object. Retrieve CompileOptions object properties with the get function and configure the properties with the set function.
