Thanks for your report. It is clearly a duplicate of bug #46451 which was posted a few days ago.

Closing report as duplicate.

I cannot set a break point for a class function. I am using Octave 4.0.0 on Window 7. Octave documentation https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/Breakpoints.html mentions:

Breakpoints in class methods are also supported (e.g., dbstop ("@class/method")).

In my work dir, I have a folder named "@DebugTest". It has two m files:

File DebugTest.m has contents (2 lines):

classdef DebugTest

File d.m has contents (3 lines):

function d(dt)
  disp('Break here please.');

I run the following three lines in command window (Octave GUI):

dt = DebugTest();

Here is the output screen shot:

>> dt = DebugTest();
>> dt.d();
Break here please.
>> dbstop("@DebugTest/d");
error: add_breakpoint: unable to find the requested function

We see desired output. So my class function is recognized without any problem. But the error message shows I cannot set a break point. Remark that I cannot set break point on the GUI  by mouse click either.
