Yes, in the console window, there is no need for the debug mode, but in the editor. I think, the OP was targeting for the editor where this feature would really help during debugging.

Why only in debug mode as the title seems to suggest?

Maybe change title into "Hover mode for variables in command window" ?

It would be every useful during debugging if Octave was to emulate a hover mode (like Matlab), so that when the mouse pointer is over a variable, it displays its value in a small box beside the mouse pointer.
