I think this is partly a duplicate of #38261

The @class interface calls the function @class/display.m when it needs to display an object of @class. This works fine when the output is to stdout. When the output is to a different file handle, such as when using fdisp, the output still goes to the screen and the file is left empty.

I've attached a tar file with a sample class and test script which illustrates the problem.

Matlab talks about overloading not only display(), but also disp(). It's unclear whether even that will be enough in this case.
