I am using: pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.21 (TeX Live 2020/W32TeX)

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug.

Without a stack trace from the crash it's very hard to determine
what caused it. Can you get us a stack trace? Please see
http://wiki.octave.org/Debugging_Octave for more information on
how to do so. Thanks in advance!

Which LaTeX are you using?
I just tested with the binaries from MiKTeX (updated today) and Octave 7.3.0 on Windows 11. And the example on that documentation page fails with the expected warnings.
If I change the exemplary command to `title ("$x^2$", "interpreter", "latex")`, the title shows the rendered LaTeX string.

PS: A little less upper case and exclamation marks in the title would still have worked. 😉

The Latex interpreter example from Octave website is not working. Octave crashes immediately CLI or GUI. I have latex.exe, dvipng.exe, and dvisvgm.exe on my PATH and they are working fine.
