Re: doc feature no longer works

For me (Octave 4.4.1 on win10):

Using the GUI the doc command simply switches to the documentation pane, which is fine.

Using the CLI though the doc command goes a bit mad! It is clearly in a loop with the home page of the CLI version of the manual flashing rapidly on and off. Definitely something wrong.

Cheers... Ian

I am using Octave 4.4.1 on 64-bit Windows 7.  At the Octave user prompt, entering doc is supposed to start up a document viewer that displays the user-manual.  It worked at one time.  Now, entering doc does nothing - I'm back at the user prompt - like I never entered the phrase "doc".

Any help?

It works for me.
Did you make a function named doc?

which doc gives me :
>> which doc
'doc' is a function from the file /usr/local/share/octave/4.4.1-rc2/m/help/doc.m
