soctcl provides an octave function that lets you evaluate octave expressions by 
external programs through a socket, do I understand this correctly?

One of the most important features that I need in an IDE is debug functionality 
including that I can easily browse to the exact error location of  any error 
message (for example octave output is something like "error in line 20 of file 
test.m", I click on this message and the editor opens test.m and scrolls to 
line 20). Is this possible using soctcl? I guess that error messages still 
appear in the initial octave output, so that the connected external program has 
no means of interpreting them.

Besides, is the described link-errors-to-line-in-source-file possible with 
emacs' inferior-octave mode?
