I think you have fallen foul of a typo in the file


as follows

          # Save image in octave image file format

          # The following line is buggy
          # eval (['save -asciii ', oct_file, ' map X']);
            eval (['save -ascii ', oct_file, ' map X']);

where oct_file is a string which is intended to be a filename of the form
"image.xxxx.img", where "xxxx" is four random digits. Because the flag
"-ascii" is mis-spelt, the save command executed is
          save -asciii image.xxxx.img map X
which tries to save variables 'image.xxxx.img', 'map' and 'X' to the file
'-asciii'. Hence the result.  If you make the correction given above, it
should work. (By the way, delete the file '-asciii' in your directory.)
