What I meant is that you can read the documentation of a function
by typing "help function_name" at octave prompt. If you do that
for "edit" (that is "help edit"), you should read that you can see
what is the current editor used by octave through "edit get editor"
and that you can change it through "edit editor new_editor_value".
