I edited some of the language and committed your changeset on nested function documentation here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/fa3989fbb1b5).

Closing this bug report.

I wrote a subchapter on nested functions. An error message mentioned in the chapter does require the patch for bug #36217 to be applied (https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?36217).

Octave has recently added support for nested functions.  These join regular functions, command line functions, anonymous functions, subfunctions, and private functions in the arsenal of Octave.  There needs to be a subchapter in func.txi describing this new capability.

I have raised the severity of this issue to Important so it will block the 3.8.0 release until completed.
