Maybe I don't understand the question, but assuming that you were just wanting 
to run a simple octave script.  Prepared your script with any text editor.  
If the name is "hello.m".  Start octave and type "hello".

You can also run it from the command line with "octave hello.m", or on a unix 
system you  put "#!/usr/bin/octave" on the first line of your script and make 
the script executable.

I also have a question maybe someone can help we with.  From the command line 
how do I run an octave script and then transfer control to the octave 
interper so I can interact with the results without exiting back to the 
command line when the script finishes?
