Very nice. And very useful.
Would it be a big change to allow searchs without quotation marks?
lookfor inverse
instead of
lookfor "inverse"
I hit an error (memory exhausted). (Sorry that the examples below
don't keep your nice formatting.)
octave:1> lookfor "inverse"
acos Compute the inverse cosine of each element of X
acosh Compute the inverse hyperbolic cosine of each element of X
asin Compute the inverse sine of each element of X
asinh Compute the inverse hyperbolic sine of each element of X
atan Compute the inverse tangent of each element of X
atanh Compute the inverse hyperbolic tangent of each element of X
ipermute The inverse of the `permute' function
sinh Compute the inverse hyperbolic sine of each element of X
octave:2> lookfor "inv"
error: memory exhausted -- trying to return to prompt
PS4 If Octave is invoked with the `--echo-commands'
option, the value
acos Compute the inverse cosine of each element of X
acosh Compute the inverse hyperbolic cosine of each element of X
argv The command line arguments passed to Octave are
available in this
asin Compute the inverse sine of each element of X
asinh Compute the inverse hyperbolic sine of each element of X
atan Compute the inverse tangent of each element of X
atanh Compute the inverse hyperbolic tangent of each element of X
cell Create a new cell array object
echo Control whether commands are displayed as they are executed
edit_history If invoked with no arguments, `edit_history'
allows you to edit the
erf Computes the error function,
erfc Computes the complementary error function, `1 - erf (Z)'
eye Return an identity matrix
format Control the format of the output produced by
`disp' and Octave's
help Octave's `help' command can be used to print
brief usage-style
history If invoked with no arguments, `history' displays
a list of commands
ipermute The inverse of the `permute' function
keyboard This function is normally used for simple debugging
load Load the named variables from the file FILE
pause Suspend the execution of the program
