I wonder if there is a way to debug (with a debugger, such as gdb or

My technique is to launch "gdb octave", call "help myfunc" that causes
the function myfunc to be loaded into the symbol table but not executed.
You can then set breakpoints in myfunc and debug normally..

I suppose it goes without saying that in order for this to work that
Octave and all the .oct files need to be compiled with debug symbols?

Looks like I finally found a reason to compile myself instead of using
the Debian binary.
