Normally, log() is the function:

octave:1> which log
'log' is a built-in function from the file libinterp/corefcn/
octave:1> log(2)
ans =  0.69315

but you can define your own data array called log() which will then shadow the log() function:

octave:2> log(1)=1
log =  1
octave:3> log(2)
error: log(2): out of bound 1octave:3> log(e)
error: log(2.71828): subscripts must be either integers 1 to (2^31)-1 or logicals
octave:3> which log
'log' is a variable

If you can remember defining data that shadows the log() function, great---if not, it could be some code that is automatically loaded in your environment and it would require some investigation to figure out where it's coming from.
