./admin/make_index will create an index in html from of all of the functions listed in one of the INDEX files if run in the head of octave-forge and octave itself is placed in ../octave relative to this point. This is what is used to create the category index on the octave-forge home page. If its not in one of the INDEX files its probably an internal function (or maybe a new function that wasn't indexed when introduced), so this is probably what you want...

If run from a sub-directory of octave-forge make_index outputs to the standard output, the first sentence of every function description in the INDEX file in the current directory. This is useful if you ever want to create a contents.m file.

Finally I created a function a long time back to get the help as a string, as part of an early thread about Soren's package manager on octave-forge. See the message

this might also be of help to you...
