I'd like to color all objects by how far each part of them that's visible in a
particular pixel of final image is from the camera. Apparently this can be done
by using some pigment but I have no idea what to do after spending about an hour
reading https://www.povray.org/documentation/view/3.6.1/332/ and other pages.
Google wasn't helpful either. Any suggestions? Thanks!

The small attached scene does that (thanks to Alain and ChrisB).
