Gedit has very good syntax highlighting for GNU octave, specially since v3 when it was split into matlab and octave. It uses gtksourceview for it and the latest lang file can be downloaded from [http://git.gnome.org/browse/gtksourceview/plain/data/language-specs/octave.lang their repository].

Note that since matlab and GNU octave files have the same mimetypes and globs in gedit, your files may be highlighted using matlab rules. To easiest way to fix this is removing {{Path|matlab.lang}}. The same happens with functions files which may be highlighted as Objective-C which can also be fixed by removing {{Path|objc.lang}}. However, system updates may recreate these files and so you may want to keep removing these files. The lang files usually reside at {{Path|/usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0/language-specs/}}
