While working in Octave, I found that when I add new function to octavepath/share/m directory, or when I edit my the function, I have to quit octave. Otherwsie octave alsways uses the old function. It seems that octave automatically loaded the function in the load path when octave is started. So even the function has been updated, octave will not reload it unless restart the octave. Is this normal? Thanks Frank

Yes this is normal. Octave does this to speed up the looking for the M files.

All the M files are recorded at start up and then Octave does not look through all those directories again later. But Octave does look in a directory called Octave-files each time you try and run and M file. So put your new files in the
Octave_ files  directory then all will be well. :-)
