right, sorry I hadn't actually run this...

Instead of editing diary from within Octave I'd open the diary file with
an editor as notepad.exe or - even better - Scite using the Windows
Explorer context menue "Open with..."-command.

yes, but that would require navigating with explorer to octave's current work directory, which, according to my experience with students, is not a trivial task for those windows users who are not familiar with the command shell...

alternatively I think one can:

1) save the diary file with a different name:

>> diary session_log.txt
>> diary off
>> edit session_log.txt

2) tell edit to look for the file in the current directory

>> diary on
>> diary off
>> edit .\diary

again I don't have access to a widows box right now so you should try it out first,
anyway it works on unix....

HTH, Michael
