You can use something like

  DEFUN(myfunction, args, ,
    "help text"
    octave_value retval;

    string arg = args(0).string_value;

    my_c_function (arg.c_str ());

    return retval;

Of course, you might want to add some error checking too.

Take a look at the functions distributed with Octave for more
examples.  The list of functions that extract data from octave_value
objects are declared in the header file ov.h.
