Thanks Carnë.

I had never found the 'lookfor' command. I always thought there ought to be
a better way of looking for a command if you have no idea what it's name
was. The 'octave' naming style is pretty compact, and it is sometimes hard
to guess.

If you do 'help lookfor' then the help message ends with...
     See also: help, doc, which.

Perhaps the straight 'help' reply should have a similar last line...
     See also: doc, which, lookfor

That would put people like me on the right track.
