diary also saves the prompt of your commands, therefore the raw output
is not a valid script file. The following fails:

If you want to create scripts while you write, I recommend that you
use gedit (which colorizes Octave code beautifully, thanks to Carnë's
conf file) and a terminal running octave. You can make gedit 80
columns wide and the rest of the screen you use your terminal in
"Always on Top" option; in this way you clicking and writing in your
text doesn't hide your terminal. You write your code in gedit and test
it in Octave calling the script. Just a suggestion.
