[Octave-bug-tracker] [bug #62552] In-place operator spacing works for 'i

Follow-up Comment #25, bug #62552 (project octave):

I think that's better, but it can probably be more direct rather thna 'Hint:'.

If this error is _only_ triggerd by command stlye function calls, then the
error message should explicitly say something to that effect, and maybe say
something about the spacing being the cause.

'variable %s used in command-style function call" 

if ambiguous operator spacing can be identified during the error, then
separate the comment #20 'a test' error from the 'a +1' or 'a +=1' errors. 

'ambiguous operator spacing makes variable %s appear to be a used in a
command-style function call'

i'm not sure what is best, just that before I realized any function can be
called command style, when I moved from octave 6.4 to 7.1 and started seeing
this error frequently, I really had  no idea why the operations were
triggering that error and the message didn't really help.
