How to import external C-code(.c) and precompiled libraries (.a) from files into Simulink with Embedded Coder?
I found the S-block in the documentation, but I don’t want to copy and paste the C code into the modules manually, I would rather prefer a block that could point to files in disk.
The reason behind is we alread hava a C toolchain based repository, with multiple users commiting code changes, and I don't want to have to manually update all the S blocks on my model manually with the C code from our repository every time we have a change. I want Embedded Coder to pick the files from disk automatically and compile them with the model.
Is it any other easy way to export a project from ETAS ASCET into Simulink/Embedded Coder ?
Regards.

Try it. I've been able to import .lib files with matching .h files.
