sys(): Wrong error message if called with inconsistent parameters of hidden arguments

If sys() is called with wrong parameter values then it returns the wrong (or at least useless and misleading) message that sys(#,#,#,#) is undefined.

A helpful message would be: "Specified number of rows not equal to number of elements"

Even better: just ignore the tast two arguments, as the last can't be different from 1 and the second last must equal the number of elements given.


Left example: numeric evaluation, right example symbolic evaluation


BTW, I don't understand why the message appears only with numeric evaluation. In symbolic evaluation, there is no reason to not complain.

Reverted status in tracker because I've updated the wrong issue (target of the fix was SS-2407);

About this issue, the closest exception that I can add is "NumberOfRowsOrColumnsDoNotMatch"; (BTW  it should affects only manual edit of plain math, and also matrices)
