discusses #if #ifdef #switch #range #while, basically everything except 
#for.

(Also I notice a 2008 copyright on the bottom of that page. I didn't 
think 3.7.1 was *that* old. ;) )

What (besides the URL itself) makes you believe that's the v3.7.1 online
documentation - and how did you arrive at that URL in the first place?

Note the tab above the text reading "POV-Ray 3.6 Documentation Online View".

Also, for giggles, try this URL:

http://www.povray.org/documentation/view/3.8.2/241/


The most recent documentation on www.povray.org is the official
documentation of v3.7.0, and its URLs read something like:

http://www.povray.org/documentation/3.7.0/r3_2.html#r3_2_1_3


The "most official" documentation of v3.7.1 / v3.8 can be found on the
Wiki (http://wiki.povray.org).

Indeed. The script behind it is able to resolve older (3.5) documentation links
and translate them to 3.6 links based on a table. The script was made to always
use the latest doc version in case of an error. Apparently nobody updated the
table to also include 3.7.

Bleh. I was tired. :)
It was the url. And part of my brain said "there is no 3.7.1 specific 
docs. It's 3.7".  And Mr. Google sent me there.

This is the part where, if this were facebook, would look like:
1) Open mouth
2) Insert foot
3) Delete post.

POV-Ray 8.2.0 docs are the most accurate docs, because they were written 
in the future.
