octave start bug fix

If you are having the problem running Octave on Windows 8 machines, please do this:

Add the text "-i --line-editing" to the end of the desktop shortcut Target field.

Assuming you installed Octave in the default location (“C:\Software\Octave-3.6.4\”), the complete Target line will be as follows:

C:\Software\Octave-3.6.4\bin\octave-3.6.4.exe -i –line-editing

The bug is caused by  gnulib Windows 8 compatibility issues.

Hope it helps!
