Dear Octave Help,

I went online to the #octave IRC chatroom, and JordiGH helped me discover my problem is that my script names start with a number, for example, the first is named 1_Main_Dataprocessing.m . So the issue is that I can't set a breakpoint on files that have invalid identifiers as names. 

It was recommended for me to create a bug report for this, so I will do so.

Thank you,

I have recently starting using Octave after switching from MATLAB, and I am having trouble with using Octave's debugging tools.The issue is that whenever I use the "Set breakpoint" button on Octave's GUI or I try to double click on the left of the line number, the following error pops up: error: add_breakpoint: unable to find the requested function.

I've restarted Octave, my computer, I've tried it on different files, and I've not been able to make any headway. I am using the GNU Octave, version 4.0.2 on Windows 10. It says Octave is configured for "i686-w64-mingw32". 

Please let me know if you have any idea what I could do to fix this. If this isn't me making a simple mistake, I will submit it as a bug.
