Follow-up Comment #3:

Octave is a project run by *volunteers*, these are "modern programmer[s]" like
you and hopefully me too 😇

All what Octave is comes for free (no costs, you are allowed to do anything
with it).  You don't have to purchase a license (like for MS Windows or
Matlab) neither you are limited to use Octave on a certain machine or CPU


You don't have to use Octave, if it doesn't fit your needs.  I strongly
hope/assume there is no one forcing you with a gun to use Octave.

To answer your final question:

[comment #0 original submission:]
> But we as a modern programmer can do better than letting users do the guess
work or try their luck on search engine right?


1. Settle your emotions, nobody here wants to confuse you, annoy you, make you
angry, wants to harm you.
2. Describe the part of the unclear documentation, why it is unclear?  After
reading comment #1 I still don't get what "the hell" you are trying to do?
3. Leave a better world that it is now 😇  Do you want your children to read
the hate speech of their father when they "try their luck on [a] search
engine" one day or to still face this "bad" Octave documentation you are
struggling with?  *You* can always improve something, not only others.
4. (Optional for good "modern programmer[s]") Improve the Octave's
code/documentation and submit a patch.  Contributions are greatly appreciated.
