Update of bug #49496 (project octave):

                  Status:                    None => Invalid                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

This is not a bug, this is the usual confusion about spaces within an array

When you create an array, any whitespace is treated as a separator between
elements. Your example

## this:
>> [min ([1 2 3])]
error: ...
## is the same as this:
>> [min,  ([1 2 3])]
error: ...
## which is also the same as this
>> [min(), ([1 2 3])]
error: ...

This can't be fixed, you just have to remember to omit spaces when calling a
function inside of an array context like this, or surround the entire thing
with parentheses

>> [(min ([1 2 3]))]
ans =  1
