Not all, but many of the pop-up menu entries produce invalid code.  As an
example, try using one of the plot commands at the end of the right-click


x = magic (3)
x =

   8   1   6
   3   5   7
   4   9   2

>> openvar x
%% A) Now select row 2 ([3 5 7])
%% B) Right-click and select plot

>> figure (); plot (&x (2, 1:3));

parse error:

  syntax error

The generated code contains "&x" when it should just be "x".  This is probably
something simple where the generated string for eval is pre-pending '&' for
some reason.  Also, it would be nice if there wasn't a space after the
variable name which would keep with Octave's indexing style which is to cuddle
the parenthesis with the name when indexing.
