'edit' function uses the following M-file:

I hadn't used this function on MS windows. But, I tried to use it there. It 
seemed to 
generate M-file names with path for the default editor. But, the resulting file 
names wih 
path seemed to be suitable for editors on cygwin (not suitable for notepad on 
MS windows). 

I usually edit M-files from Explorer on MS windows. 
If your m-files are put in "c:\octave", you can use those functions after the 

path( [':/cygdrive/c/octave//'] )

To conduct the above command at every octave startup, I use an ".octaverc" or 
file which have the above command line. See your manual (HTML) for "Startup 
Files" in 
"Getting Started".
