I think the post the OP is referring to is bug #45682, which has been fixed on the default branch. Closing as a duplicate of that bug.

I think that you might be using it wrong.
Here is an example:

function q=pig(x)
q=3*x^5 -100;


fh = str2func(str1)

ie;  str has to be the name of a function , not the function.

fh = str2func(str) brought about the results:
error: @7*x-13: no function and no method found
this bug is old since I have seen an august 2015 post about it. If there is any workaround, kindly let people know about it.
