It is.  Matlab does not allow a script to contain function defintions;
Octave does.

But if the first non-comment token is "function", then Octave treats
the file as a function, not a script.  So put something besides
"function ..." a the beginning of the script.  For example:

   1;  ## This is a script, not a function.

   function foo (...)

   Smax = ...;

   foo (Smax, ...)

Please see also:

which provides more detail.
