Dear All,

The code for the rounded/chamfered text. Thanks again to Sam Benge who provided
the rounded linear prism system. Looking at his code just reminds me how little
I know about SDL coding. I did learn something about arrays from him.

All the .pov files work. Don't ignore the {charset utf8} messages and you have
to get Sam Benge's rlp.inc file from the Object Collection.

Many comments at the start of the CL_rlp_capital_letters_160714.inc file.

CL_rlp_template_test.pov gives calling templates for the 17 different utility
#macros. Other .pov test files put #macro outputs together.

I wouldn't guarantee this version is better than an alpha test. I tend not to
hit bugs when I use the system (though I am aware of a couple of bugettes in the
make_embellish routine), but that is just the way I use it. I will be pleased to
receive code (on this post?) that does break it, and I will try to fix the code
or the bugs.

I will also be pleased to receive suggestions as to extension, either to the
character sets or the capabilities.

Thanks,

Jim T.
