Build Automation

Create and run build tasks using a standard programming interface

Use the build tool to create and run build tasks, such as identifying code issues, running tests, and packaging a toolbox.

You can create a plan with your tasks and task dependencies in a single build file, and then invoke the build tool to run the plan. To get started, see Overview of MATLAB Build Tool.
