The notes for installing Octave on Windows systems includes the tip

   * Setting the environment variable TERM to linux will allow less
     to work from within Octave.


  export TERM="linux"

in your .bashrc file if you are running Octave from bash.  I believe
that setting the TERM environment variable in your autoexec.bat file
(or equivalent) will also work, but I don't have a way to test it.
