 Thanks for your advice. I have a bunch files I used to test the macro. I just
need to clean them up and create an read me file. I showed the macro here as
kind of a teaser, just to show its basic set up. So people could evaluate it.

 It's hard for me to decided just what I should put on my website that other
people can use. There are things there that should be dropped or reworked.

 I don't get on the net to often (as you can tell by this late reply) and when I
do there is so much stuff to do that I don't chat as much as I should. So I
don't get a good feel of what is useful to other users of POV-ray.

Have Fun!
