Confirmed with version 3.7.3+ 16611:a1f613e5066d (plus the patch from unrelated bug #38746, which I need to build the nan package with g++ 4.8.).

Below is a simple testcase. Bug #38958 is probably a duplicate of it. The same workaround (x='foo') applies too. Here's a smaller testcase:

$ cat test_strexpr.m
if 0
'foo';
end
$ octave --eval test_strexpr
parse error near line 2 of file /home/drizzd/abs/octave-forge/octave-nan/test_strexpr.m

syntax error

>>> 'foo';

^

error: parse error while reading file /home/drizzd/abs/octave-forge/octave-nan/test_strexpr.m

when trying to install the nan package, using -forge, one gets the error

parse error near line 100 of file /usr/local/octave-dev/share/octave/packages/nan-2.5.5/train_lda_sparse.m

syntax error

>>> 'eigs did not converge';

^
error: called from 'gen_doc_cache>create_cache' in file /usr/local/octave-dev/share/octave/3.7.3+/m/help/gen_doc_cache.m near line 101, column 19

When replacing the single quotes with double quotes it works.
