Octave is about 95%  compatible with Matlab, which means that it's not
practical to write (relevant) m-files that work with both packages.
Toolbox development is separate between the two packages;  I wrote the 
initial form of the Octave Control Systems Toolbox 
    ftp://ftp.eng.auburn.edu/pub/hodel/OCST-ss-xxxxxx.tar.gz
to be superior in ease of use and capability to the Matlab toolbox that 
was available at the time (1995-1996).  I'm still working on it (expanding 
it as my needs direct), and Prof. Mueller from Germany has kindly helped 
a great deal as well.
