Update of bug #37535 (project octave):

                Severity:              3 - Normal => 2 - Minor              
                Priority:              5 - Normal => 3 - Low                
                 Summary:   "cos 1" vs "cos (1)"  => Numeric functions don't
check for string inputs


Follow-up Comment #5:

If Matlab really behaves this way, it's going to take a huge effort to make
Octave error out for all of the numeric functions erroring out on string
inputs. It's not just "cos 1", but "exp 1" and "nextpow2 1" and "abs 1" and
"sign -1" and so on. A lot of these can be caught as mappers, but the rest of
them would have to be checked individually.

Since this doesn't affect working Matlab code, I'm reducing the priority.
