I apologize if this has been submitted earlier, I couldn't find it.

So with this code:

a = struct ('f', 1);


0x0 struct array containing the fields:

For Matlab it is equivalent to:


This might seem trivial in most cases, but if you had a class name 'class1'
and property name 'prop1'. If 'prop1' happens to be a struct your (somewhat
improper) code:

sth = class1.prop1();
sth.field1 = 5;

Fails when you try to assign something to a field of that struct.

Should I try to fix this, or is the code example I gave just "bad coding" and
it's better if the code doesn't execute?
