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.
