Simple what is easy to write. ls *.m gives most of it.
'what path' is more difficult since the file_in_loadpath function
does not return directories. E.g., file_in_loadpath("general","all")
returns the empty string. The correct approach would be to see
if there is something in the kpathsea library shipped with octave
which lists all the directories in the load path and search that.

Octave doesn't support matlab style graphics handles, so gcf is
meaningless.
