This was actually a Comment in another post of mine, but I’ll paste it here since the migration to Disqus and it’s worth a post anyway:

I just found a nice site about Octave debugging. It told me about the following two functions, which are very nice for debugging, which is a pretty pitty in Octave in contrast to Matlab :/

debug_on_warning(1)
debug_on_error(1)

If you want to add a breakpoint to your function at a specific line, use the following statement

dbstop('yourfunctionname',1)

Then you can use the dbxxx commands to debug your code:

dbstep
dbcont
dbnext
...

Happy debugging! iss
