Follow-up Comment #1, bug #55225 (project octave):

As a follow up, the following shell script snippet also reveals this error
pretty clearly for me

$ cat bug.sh
touch doc/interpreter/plot.eps
while [ -e doc/interpreter/plot.eps ]; do
  rm -f doc/interpreter/plot.eps \
    && ./run-octave -qfH --path ../doc/interpreter --eval "plotimages
('doc/interpreter/', 'plot', 'eps');" \
    && echo -n "$n: " \
    && ls -lgo doc/interpreter/plot.eps \
    && n=$((n+1))
$ ./bug.sh
1: -rw-r--r-- 1 10512 Dec 14 11:37 doc/interpreter/plot.eps
2: -rw-r--r-- 1 10512 Dec 14 11:37 doc/interpreter/plot.eps
39: ls: cannot access 'doc/interpreter/plot.eps': No such file or directory

There is no indication from Octave or from the shell exit status that anything
went wrong, just that the file plot.eps doesn't exist.
