Hi(gh)!

In my ongoing "POV-Ray Archaeology" rendering series (see recent entries 
in p.b.i) I now got hold of a file from November 29, 1998 which makes 
use of the disp_nelems feature, which obviously has been discarded in 
later MegaPOV versions (trying to render the script in MegaPOV 1.3 
resulted in an error at the very location of this call). After googling 
disp_nelems, I found an Slovenian site containing a documention of 
MegaPOV 0.6, but unfortunately no download section. Does anyone here 
know whether MegaPOV 0.6 still can be obtained?

See you in Khyberspace!

Yadgar

It's gone from ulterior version of megapov because that patch get into
official povray.

replace disp_nelems with dispersion_samples and voilà!
