you need to specify the program to use for editing, 
which one to use is really a matter of taste, I like emacs 
and use the Aquamacs binary distribution [1], so I have the 
following in my ~/.octaverc configuration file:

edit editor "open -a /Applications/ %s &"
edit license gpl
edit mode async
edit home ./

type "doc edit" at the octave prompt for more options for the "edit" command.
