But you should always look at the help message of each function before
using it. For example: `help plot'

It's because some functions behave differently from their Matlab

They're not supposed to -- and if they do, it's a bug.  It might be
true, though, that not all functionality is always identically
supported (and of course, using 'help' is always a good idea).

I'm not sure I agree -- e.g. the plot command's way of specifying line labels (keys) is a wonderful feature which I think does not exist in matlab

plot(x,y,"b-;just a line;");

I'm sure there are many other examples. IMHO Octave should strive to be better than matlab, not just a clone
