Running into the following error message every now and then. And was asked to bring that into the help list (see: http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?37918):
address@hidden:~/dev/economics/rania$ octave min_estimation.m
GNU Octave, version 3.6.2
error: `ability_w_index' undefined near line 547 column 85
error: evaluating argument list element number 6
error: called from:
error: /home/yuval/dev/economics/rania/estimation_f.m at line 547, column 35
error: /home/yuval/dev/economics/rania/minestimation_test.m at line 5, column 6
error: /home/yuval/dev/economics/rania/min_estimation.m at line 39, column 11
the variable is being set with a value at line 363 and there is no branching that i can see that can cause it not to be defined at line 547.
Note also that the problem persist as I rerun the program, but goes away with the
smallest change to the code (adding one space anywhere). Also, note that I rerun from bash and not from octave commandline, and "clear all" at the first line of min_estimation.m, so that cannot be some leftovers causing the intermittent failure.
Not sure how to create a smaller reproducing code, I'm attaching a complete env that can run and reproduce.
