Hi(gh)!

I tried to render a 16-bit heightfield from an ASCII text file ( 
http://www.bergisch-afghanistan.de/povray/n80e014.txt ) using the 
attached script - the scene is parsed, and then POV-Ray crashes with an 
error:

*** Error in `povray': corrupted double-linked list: 0x00007fbc84048840 ***

or

*** Error in `povray': corrupted double-linked list: 0x00007f5ad0048800 ***

I tried also under Windows 7, using both 3.7 and 3.62, but then I always 
got the message "Can't open output file" - why?

See you in Khyberspace!

I tried on Linux, hgpovray (so not the true povray), compiled with gcc 8.
As well as 3.8.0-alpha.unofficial from 23 July 2019.

No reported problem. But maybe you have some additional options ?
(I just "povray ascii2png.pov", so it computes a png file.)

As I started calculating the whole heightfield in one pass instead of 
two, the error disappeared! Strange...

But nevertheless, thanks for you suggestion!

See you in Khyberspace!
