Superscript ^ and subscript _ and ^{supescripted} _{subscripted} if there are 
more characters.

Texmacs is the best technical editor I have ever seen, it could link content to 
a file and you could use Octave to write this content to a file. Do not think 
Texmacs could link output from Octave function calls but in such case there 
should be no need to store in intermediate files and values could be collected 
in one file using object oriented programming. Texmacs could also export to 
LaTeX which may be a better alternative if documents should be updated
