Confirmed here naturally.

This is actually closer to bug #48837 that you reported a while ago, which I noted as a duplicate of bug #48802.

That bug was about the 'cellfun (@size, ...' syntax, this bug is about the 'cellfun ("size", ...' syntax. They are similar but failing in slightly different ways.

Here, when cellfun gets the name of a function as a string, it does not allow for that function to be an overloaded method of an object in the cell array.

This bug applies to both classdef classes and old-style classes when used with cellfun.

Cellfun does not correctly find function overloads on objects when the argument is the name of a function (e.g. 'numel').  [quoting Mike Miller] -

Here's an SSCCE by Joris Gillis (casadi developer) -

classdef Foo

 

  methods
    function r=size(self)
      r = [2 3];
    end
    function r=numel(self)
      r = 6;
    end
  end
end

numel(Foo)  ## =>  6
cellfun('numel',{Foo Foo}) ## => % [1 1]

Ditto for size and other built-ins. Tested with 4.2.2 from debian backports. Per Mike, also persists in earlier versions.


Here's an example of how the bug affects casadi:

Octave__13:22:11_0021844_2> p = SX.sym('p', [2 3])

Octave__13:22:22_0021844_4> numel(p)
ans =  6

Octave__13:22:25_0021844_5> cellfun(@numel, {p,p})
ans =
   1   1 => Expected [6 6]


(with Thanks to Joris Gillis and Mike Miller: )
