Actually I was referring to using the class from an .oct file not from an .m 
file ...
anyway yes you can construct a new class in c++ and have it accessible in the 
an be persistent between calls. 
In order to do this your class must inherit from the octave_base_value class.

The instrument control package is a working example of how this can be done, 
for a much simpler example you can have a look at these files:

which are examples taken from this presentation
