Octave should be able to parse the events section of a classdef definition but nothing is done with it.  Progress on this feature is tracked in bug report {{bug|56194}}.

==== built-in class as superclass ====
 +
 
 +
Octave does not allow subclassing built-in classes.  In Matlab, classdef objects may subclass built-in integer, floating point, and logical types.  For example,
 +
 +
<source lang="octave">
 +
classdef nonsense < uint32
 +
  ...
 +
end
 +
</source>
 +
 
 +
does not work.

 +
==== concatenation of classdef objects ====
 +
 
 +
Octave does not support concatenation of classdef objects to create classdef array objects.
 +
 
 +
Example:
 +
 
 +
<source lang="octave">
 +
classdef MyClass < handle
 +
end
 +
 
 +
c = MyClass();
 +
cc = [c, c];  % won't work
 +
</source>
 +
 
 +
For now you can use a cell-array of objects instead:
 +
<source lang="octave">
 +
cc = {c, c};  % ok
 +
</source>
 +
