Thanks Mike. I ran bisect and it seems the regression was introduced in changeset 24377:ea3458c1d884 :

Confirmed here, this works in Octave 4.2 but fails in Octave 4.4.

Needs a new test case to prevent a future regression.

There seems to be a regression with whos ("-file", ...) as it throws an error with 4.4 or dev but appears to work fine with 3.6.

octave> a = magic (4);
octave> save ("test.mat", "a");
octave> whos -file test.mat
error: feval: function 'load' not found
octave> who -file test.mat
error: feval: function 'load' not found
