z .(a) = 0;
% means to MATLAB
z ('.(a)', '=', '0')
% is a function call

z .(a) = 0; is NOT function call

Not because the same syntax can be used for different operation that it
implies inconsistency. If you know a little about OOP you would never claim
such things. So you need to elaborate much more than the above to backup
your claim. The title of the thread is silly as it stands.
