I've just installed Octave, version 2.1.42 (i686-pc-cygwin). Now I
wonder, why 

> help interp1

don't work:

help: sorry, `interp1' is not documented

( e.g. help date works well )

interp1.m exists and is well documented, so I puzzled a little bit
with it. If I change interp1.m to matlab-help-style:

function yi = interp1(x, y, xi, method, extrap)
% usage: yi = interp1(x, y, xi [, 'method' [, 'extrap']])
% Interpolate the function y=f(x) at the points xi. The sample 
% points x must be strictly monotonic.  If y is a matrix with
% length(x) rows, yi will be a matrix of size rows(xi) by columns(y),
% or its transpose if xi is a row vector.

can I see the help message. Do I need some special environment
settings? I tried also: octave --no-init-file , but it doesn't help.
