Since there are already plans to redesign the gui console, this feature won't be implemented for the current console for windows.

I have pushed the patch with changeset
and changed the operating system to Windows, since the solution for Windows is still an open issue.

The unix part of the terminal already provides a filter structure for matching urls and related actions for opening or copying the urls. Attached please find a patch for testing that allows to open urls directly via left click or via the context menu.

The concept can also be used for opening files from error messages (bug #35619).

I have not pushed this patch to the default branch because the windows part of the terminal does not provide the required filter structure and I have not tested compiling the patch for windows yet. I am wondering whether it is worth (and possible) to merge the two different versions (unix and windows).

This feature would be very useful in Octave to implement clickable error messages in the console, that directly lead you into the corresponding code line in the editor (see bug #35619).

in matlab,

    warning('please <a href="matlab: afunc();">click here</a>.')


    Warning: please _click here_.

where "_click here_" is an underlined link which if can click on it and it'll run afunc().
