In my simulink model there is a Matlab function which consists of many functions:
function block_output = MatFun1(input1, input2, ...)
...
block_output = MatFun2(x, t)
end
function y = MatFun2(x, t)
y = f(x, t, input1, input2, ...)
end
Mathematically MatFun2 is just a function of x and t. Therefore, I would like to keep the notation intact. However, the function requires the block's inputs as well. I tried to globalize the variables input1, input2, ... to be able to use them in MatFun2 as well:
function block_output = MatFun1(input1, input2, ...)
global block_inputs
block_inputs = [input1, input2, ...]
...
block_output = MatFun2(x, t)
end
However, I encounter the following error:
Global declaration not resolved to a Data Store Memory block registered via the Ports and Data Manager.
As I mentioned, I do not want to pass input1, input2, ... to MatFun2 as arguments. Moreover, I want these variables to be known just within this block (not the whole simulink model). Nested functions are also not desirable. What options do I have and how can I resolve the problem?

Dear Swarooph,
Thanks for your reply. Since you have commented under my question (instead of answering it), I am not able to vote for it. But thanks again. Regarding your tip, I will reconsider my design.
