RE: output and command screen

Hi Andy,
        I am using Windows 7. To run octave I click a short-cut (from the start 
menu) which points to "C:\Octave\3.2.4_gcc-4.4.0\bin\octave-3.2.4.exe". Then, 
an Octave window opens up with octave prompt (e.g., "octave-3.2.4.exc:1"). I cd 
to the folder where my program (.m file is located). Then, I type the name of 
my *.m file without the extension. This starts calculations which is supposed 
to produce many pages of output. However, I do not see the output until the 
program finishes running. I would prefer to see the output as it reaches the 
appropriate points in the program which is supposed to produce the output. Once 
the program finished running, it will produce the multiple pages of output 
where I can go back and forward using 'b' and 'f' or quit by typing 'q'. Once I 
type 'q', the output disappears and I go back to the command window where I 
type the *.m file to run the program.

        I would like to have both the command and output window interleaved so 
that I can see the command and output  on the same window. As it is now, the 
output window disappears once I press 'q'.
        I am not running octave from DOS prompt.
        Thanks for your help.

I am not sure I understand.

Are you doing something like "octave somescript.m" from a DOS prompt?
You could start an Octave MSYS terminal and then just call your script
from that.
