It is no longer possible to create HTML documentation with demos, which include variable declarations.

In html_help_text.m the demo code is run with `eval` in a subfunction `get_output`, which no longer allows to create variables (see bug #51698).

Error message during generate_package_html:

In the doctest package, this problem could be solved by moving the eval'ing function into a separate m-file, see https://github.com/catch22/octave-doctest/issues/167
