Thanks for the hint. I could achieve the same with the entry

        (add-hook 'octave-mode-hook '(lambda () (modify-syntax-entry ?\% "<")))

in my ~/.emacs file. There is one quibble yet: '%'-comments are indented
to end of the line rather than left were they are put. Is there a way
to make '%' comments behave like '##' comments?

This works correctly, but

    sprintf ('%s', 'some string')

not. I am using emacs 20.7 which ships with the latest Debian.

Thanks,
