Heh! You're being fooled by the error message.

POV-Ray isn't complaining about a missing parameter for `rotate`, it is
complaining about a missing parameter for `#fclose`".

You need to specify which file you want to close (you can have multiple
open at the same time):

    #fclose FOOBAR

(Also, you then need to actually /use/ `AAA`, othjerwise POV-Ray /will/
complain about a missing parameter for `rotate`.)
