When you click on a m-file it will be opened in an editor. At the moment, your 
Mac is associating m-files with Xcode. You can change that by ...

(1) single-click on an m-file
(2) CMD+I
(3) Select your preferred editor under "Open with:". If you use TextEdit, be 
sure to use plain test (no rich text).

To run your m-file, you'll need to be sure the script is in Octave's path. 
Since the path always starts with the present working directory, you can just 
cd to the location you have your scripts saved. Once that is done, just type 
the name of the m-file (without the ".m").
