The reason for asking is that Octave 5.2.0 on windows crashes
frequently, especially when using plotting. During development it is
easily possible to request plots that go into a loop and hang. Ctrl-C
is ineffective at that point and the only solution is to use the task
manager to kill Octave and restart it.

I can put up with having to restart Octave occasionally, but it is a
real pain to lose the history and have to reopen all the files that
were open in the editor.

A command to save history (and list of open files) would save a lot of
