Those key bindings are still not functional in the (Windows) 4.2.0. release of Octave.

Just re-tested before the 4.0 release. This works fine in Linux, and fails in Windows where the SHift+PgUP key produces a '~' character.

Could be specific to the Windows terminal. The appropriate keybindings should be Shift+PageUp and Shift+PageDown, can you try those to make sure they do nothing in the Windows command window? In Linux, these scroll backward and forward by about half the screen height.

PageUp and PageDown by themselves are or should be readline-bindable key sequences, typically bound to "beginning-of-history" and "end-of-history".
