13 Debugging

Octave includes a built-in debugger to aid in the development of scripts. This can be used to interrupt the execution of an Octave script at a certain point, or when certain conditions are met. Once execution has stopped, and debug mode is entered, the symbol table at the point where execution has stopped can be examined and modified to check for errors.

The normal command-line editing and history functions are available in debug mode.
