I forked this repo from thedavidprice and noticed that it's not working very nice (maybe a windows issue..).
I dont use octave, so I just got rid of octave parts and also modified some snippets to work properly under Atom (i.e. as far as I understand, atom cant -yet- get filename or things like that in snippets).
As time passes I might add more snippets to it.
I also found out that best syntax to go with this language pack is the sublime-default-syntax (https://atom.io/themes/sublime-default-syntax)
Atom.io language support for Matlab only converted from TextMate Bundle: https://github.com/textmate/matlab.tmbundle
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
