1- compile your oct file with -g option and do not strip it
2- usage 'nm -C' to find real octave function name
3- launch octave inside gdb ('gdb octave' and run)
4- ask for your oct fil help page to load symbol
5- interupt octave with Control-c and set a breakpoint inside your oct function.
6- continue debugging ('cont')
