Create Connection by Using TCP Communication Channel
This code from Set Up PIL Connectivity by Using target Package shows how to
specify the connection between your development computer and target hardware. In the
example, the target application runs on your development computer as a separate process
and uses a TCP communication channel through
connection = target.create('TargetConnection'); connection.Name = 'Host Process Connection'; connection.Target = hostTarget; connection.CommunicationChannel = target.create('TCPChannel'); connection.CommunicationChannel.Name = ... 'External Process TCPCommunicationChannel'; connection.CommunicationChannel.IPAddress = 'localhost'; connection.CommunicationChannel.Port = '0';
Using name-value arguments, you can create the connection object with this command:
timer = target.create('TargetConnection', ... 'Name', 'Host Process Connection', ... 'CommunicationType', 'TCPChannel', ... 'IPAddress', 'localhost', ... 'Port', '0')
