Hello everyone.
I recall I used HGPovRay to export .obj files from a PovRay script.
I also heard, back in 2016, there was an ongoing effort to enable "standard"
PovRay to export triangle meshes.
Is this true? And if this is false, how should I get HGPovRay for Linux?

Thanks for either.

P.S.: Sorry, I forgot to mention HGPovRay webpage doesn't have downloads and so
available.

Current hgpovray is on github and bitbucket, using 3.7 as base.

Hgpovray has never exported .obj files directly.

It is able to export .stl and .gts files, and provides data access to 
mesh data from SDL.

Due to drastic changes in official master branch (for 3.8), the 
adaptation need to be done again, and it is happening slowly (and only 
in github).

Hgpovray is available as sources only (you have to compile it as usual 
povray)

Everything starts at http://wiki.povray.org/content/User:Le_Forgeron

Thanks for clearing up stuff.
So, let's say I'm gonna compile it, can I use it from the command line like
imagemagick, or I'm restricted to use the language?
I mean, something like:"hgpovray create cube -o cube.stl" and have a cube mesh
in the stl file.

Thanks for either.

We are well in povray.newusers, and I expect your delusion to be great
if you expect a command line like imagemagick.

The export of stl (as well as the generation & transformation of meshes
from traditional finite 3D objects) is only one of the extensions
provided by hgpovray to the usual Povray.

And it works the usual way: in the language.
