Can you post an exact copy of your file '' somewhere?

This error message comes from the bash shell, which indicates that bash
is trying to interpret this file as a shell script, not calling Octave.

I'm suspicious because Kai's example only contained 4 lines, but your
error message references line 5. Did you accidentally insert a newline
at the start of the file? If I do that, I can reproduce your error.

The very first byte of the file needs to be '#'.
