Follow-up Comment #11, bug #55667 (project octave):

Another place where there may be a compatibility issue is for calling static
class methods.  As I understand it, if a class named "foo" has a static member
function named "bar", then


should call the static member function.  What does Matlab do for


?  Is this an error?  If not, what happens with the ".baz" part of this

Octave currently ignores the ".baz" part, which I think is wrong.    If we did
the same as for other functions, then we would call foo.bar and then index the
result with ".baz".  It may be possible, though I think it will be more
complicated than making it an error.
