thank you.

context and trivia;  i recently revived my interest in lens flare and
diffraction spikes.  i saw that gimp has a filter for it, 'sparkles', which
works ok.  sorta.  i investigated writing gimp filters but they are c-language,
which i do not know.  still, i downloaded the source and looked at it.  the
plug-in is
   ...gimp-2.10.22\plug-ins\common\sparkle.c
wherein it states
   /* Sparkle --- image filter plug-in for GIMP
   * Copyright (C) 1996 by John Beale; ported to Gimp by Michael J. Hammel;
john beale will of course be familiar with many povray users as an important,
long-ago contributor.
