Sorry, this was a rather technical request 😇

You can check for qscintilla (some library used to give GNU Octave an
builtin editor) support by typing into your command window:

   >> __octave_config_info__ ("QSCINTILLA")
   ans = 1

If "ans = 0" appears, then your Octave was built without the editor, and
there is nothing you can do to make the editor appear magically.

On a macOS system I tested the latest Octave 5.2.0 from Homebrew and I
obtained "ans = 0".  Thus I am afraid you cannot make use of the builtin
Octave editor now.

The issue is reported
