Does octave offer any "history-search-backward" or 
"history-search-forward"?  In "tcsh", these are listed in the man pages 
as " EMACS Multi-character and 8 bit bindings " and appear as:

             "^[N"  or "M-N"          ->  history-search-forward
             "^[P"  or "M-P"          ->  history-search-backward

So that if I start to type a command, typing meta-p after typing the 
first few letters will search backward in the history to the most recent 
command that also began with those letters.

Is this possible in octave?  I know that matlab offers a similar feature, 
where control-p will perform the same function described above if you 
have already type some letters on the command line.
