I want to reuse values. Is there a similar functionality as %10 of Mathematica in Octave?
octave:18> 3/log (2)
ans = 4.32808512266689
octave:19> % //how to output 4.328....
octave:19> %%
octave:19> %18

If you just need the last value calculated, the variable ans will do the job. If you need it after several other calculations, you need to use the command run_history linenumber:
Then that value is in the ans variable and you can use it in a calculation:
run_history is a command, not a function, so it doesn't seem to be usable directly in a calculation (or else I'm getting the syntax wrong). I'd love to hear about a more direct way if there is one.
