Agree, this did fail in 4.0.3, but does work in 4.2, closing as fixed.

Oh, sorry, forget the previous ... seemingly Octave-4.2 already behaves like Matlab in this, dropping the '[]' in concatenation with cell arrays of any dimension.

What does Matlab say to:

[[]; ['xxx', {1, 2}]]

(and, for completeness, to:

[[]; {1, 2}]


[[]; {1; 2}]

zz = num2cell([1 2]);
out = [out; 'xxx' zz]

error: vertical dimensions mismatch (1x1 vs 1x3)


out = [out; 'arg' zz]

out =

    'arg'    [1]    [2]
