Add 'lib' prefix to libraries generated with MATLAB Code Generator

2 views (last 30 days)
I've generated some C++ code from some MATLAB code that I have on my Mac. I'm using the DLL option to generate a shared library. However the shared libraries I've generated have names like "mylibrary.dylib" and my compiler expects "libmylibrary.dylib". Is there any way to tell MATLAB to add in the "lib" prefix?

You can use the -o argument to codegen to rename the library:
codegen somecode -args 1 -o libmylibrary
In the Coder App the "Output file name" setting controls this

This worked, thanks! I'm using the command line interface so I guess it was a little less obvious.
