interfacing octave with tcsh

I am experiencing difficulties when using an octave script to define a shell
variable via command line substitution (ie, the backquote character) in the
tcsh and csh shells.  The following example works properly in CentOS, but
triggers the errors listed below in Fedora and Cygwin.  I would appreciate
any suggestions you can offer.

% cat > ./octprint.m << EOF
#!/usr/bin/octave -q
fprintf('%d', 5)
% chmod u+x ./octprint.m
% @ atvar = `./octprint.m`
@: Expression Syntax.
% set setvar = `./octprint.m`
% echo $setvar
echo: No match.
