Follow-up Comment #13, bug #57205 (project octave):

same code pasted into command window gives more info: 

>> 1
ans = 1
>> if 2
error: parse error:

  syntax error

>>> 4x
>> 5
ans = 5
>> end
error: parse error:

  syntax error

>>> end
>> 7
ans = 7

Actually, I was not aware till now, that copy/paste and F9 behave differently.
For years I was using both alternately, depending on the system I'm on. On
Linux with a 3-Button mouse, the most convenient way is to mark some code,
move the mouse over the command window and press the middle button to paste
the selection. On Windows, F9 needs less keystrokes. I wonder why there are
two different methods to handle both cases?
