Is ``diary off'' in .m file already executed when pager gets output?
It looks like Octave assumes ``diary off'' at the end of .m file was
issued at the beginning of paged output, and so I got nothing in diary
file for the paged output.  (Thus I had to remove ``diary off'' from
.m file.)  Perhaps Octave needs a special treat for ``diary off'' in 
.m file when output is paged.

Thanks for your answer.
