This is a duplicate of bug #33637

Sat 22 Apr 2017 04:24:35 PM UTC, original submission:  


>> clear; A(1:2:end) = 1;

Undefined function or variable 'A'.

>> clear; A(1:2:end);

Undefined function or variable 'A'.

In Octave:

>> clear; A(1:2:end) = 1; # works!

>> clear; A(1:2:end) # error message could be better

error: invalid use of end
