Octave is actually quite compatible with Matlab.  If you insist on
full compatibility you have to invoke Octave with the --braindead
option.  As far as syntax is concerned, the most significant
difference is that Matlab's comment char is '%' while Octave supports
both, '%' and '#'.  This should be considered by a matlab-prettifier,
not to mention the additional Octave keywords you offered.
