octave startup directory?

i want octave (v4.2.1 x86_64 linux) to launch with in the current directory.  

when i launch octave from the terminal command line with the "--no-gui"
option, it defaults to starting the session with a working directory of
/home/$USER.  GUI session re-loads previous session & working directory, and
i would like to retain that behavior while terminal sessions start in the
local directory.

it's not clear what I should put in octaverc or ~/.octaverc (currently does
not exist) to induce this behavior and think this is probably set by
environmental variables.  any help or advice?  thanks
