do 'help -i', it will open the 'info' documentation for octave in your
terminal (tip: type 'q' to quit the help program, '/' or C-s to search
a word, '?' or C-h to get some help).

the 'help' command can also document functions. For example,

octave:3> help eig
eig is a built-in function

 - Loadable Function: LAMBDA = eig (A)
 - Loadable Function: [V, LAMBDA] = eig (A)
     The eigenvalues (and eigenvectors) of a matrix are computed in a several
     step process which begins with a Hessenberg decomposition, followed by a
     Schur decomposition, from which the eigenvalues are apparent.  The
     eigenvectors, when desired, are computed by further manipulations of the
     Schur decomposition.
