This is a bug in the octave-forge/extra/Windows/image.m function.

It does not work with the --traditional switch, which is part of many
octave-for-windows startup scripts.

$ octave --traditional -q
>> image;
parse error near line 70 of file /usr/share/octave/2.1.36/m/image/image.m
>>>   bmp_name = [tmpnam () , ".bmp"];
>> exit

address@hidden ~
$ octave -q
octave:1> image;
octave:2> exit

I have just fixed it in the octave-forge CVS.

or something like that.   I know the script function image.m tries to =

I think it deals with any kind of path, so octave cannot find th =
