Define the following class with subsref and subsasgn methods

%%% @foo/foo.m
function obj = foo ()
  obj = struct ("store", []);
  obj = class(obj, 'foo');
end

%%% @foo/subsref.m
function val = subsref (obj, S)
  disp ("subsref");
  val = builtin ("subsref", obj.store, S);
end

%%% @foo/subsasgn.m
function obj = subsasgn (obj, S, val)
  disp ("subsasgn");
  obj.store = builtin ("subsasgn", obj.store, S, val);
end

In Matlab:

>> f = foo ();
>> f.a.b = 1;
subsasgn
>> f.a.b
subsref
ans =
     1

In Octave 5.1 or 6.0:

octave:1> f = foo ();
octave:2> f.a.b = 1;
subsref
error: null_matrix cannot be indexed with .
error: called from
    subsref at line 3 column 7
octave:2> f.a = 1;
subsasgn

I don't think that subsref should be called when evaluating "f.a.b = 1;"
