|  Hayden,

But the script Hayden posted was not a data file.  It was a script
file.  So instead of loading it, you just need to make sure it is in a
directory in the LOADPATH (like the same directory where you are
running Octave; type pwd at the Octave prompt if you are not sure
where you are) and type the name of the file (without the .m):

  octave:1> read_hayden
