First, make sure that your scripts works within octave. So all your
functions must reside in its own files. These files must be in octave's 
Make a wrapper script which calls your functions.
The arguments a stored in argv variable.

Here an example script file (foo.m) :

#!/usr/local/bin/octave -q

if (rows(argv) < 1)
        usage("foo filename");
        fname = argv(1,:);
        if (isstr(fname))
                ret = your_octave_function(fname);


make foo.m executable: chmod +x foo.m


./foo.m /path/yourfile

should work

Hope this helps
