#version 3.7;

Error Message:
POV-Ray\v3.8-beta\Insert Menu\Basic shapes.pov" line 7: Parse Error: 
Expected 'numeric expression', undeclared identifier 'Typ' found instead

This error is on many files.
Is there a way to automate the replacement of this word with another 
that works?

Maybe you copy-pasted the file and the "Typ" is part of a commented line?

Other than that, no idea.
I'm sure you could try some regular expression replacement technique - no idea
how to do that in Win/Dos.   Maybe a text editor/word processor...

Best to find out what the actual problem is first.

This is a Friedrich Lohmueller file, part of the original (Windows) 
download package. To use it directly, you need to uncomment line 5:
       //#declare Typ = 62; // for testing

Initially, when you install POV-Ray, you have (somewhere) the 
possibility to generate thumbnails for the complete Insert Menu. I don't 
remember however, how to start that :-( It was created by Friedrich and 
made part of the POV-Ray download package.

Yes thank you and Bold Eagle, it's a Windows build, I uninstalled a 29 
Dec 2021 v3.8.0b2 and it doesn't ha that line, looks like is something 
developers want to introduce in the final 3.8, so it comes only on the 
latest beta builds; but thanks for the help

I got it also for 3.7 and I seem to remember that I downloaded the 
package, years ago, from: 
http://www.f-lohmueller.de/pov_tut/down/insert_a.htm

Possibly, it followed me over all those years and through different pov 
updates by simply copy/past the insert menu each time...
