  RoundEdge update and Object Collection upload problem (ping stbenge) (Message 1 to 9 of 9)

I added elliptical toroid meshes to RoundEdge, and also #version'd it to 3.5, as
that version is still used in circumstances where upgrading is not feasible.
The module is at:

http://lib.povray.org/searchcollection/index2.php?objectName=RoundEdge&contributorTag=Cousin%20Ricky

(An isosurface implementation of elliptical toroids is still on my wish list, as
meshes cannot be blobbed without a modeling tool; however, my brain isn't as
mathematically adept as it was during my first semester of college.)

To Sam Benge:  If you can get a working upload of rlp, that would be most
welcome.
_________________________________________

I decided to upload the new RoundEdge on the chance that the previous upload
failed due to a network glitch on my end.  Again, the upload was incomplete.  In
both attempts, exactly 20 files were uploaded, making a random glitch unlikely.
I used different Web clients for the two uploads, so that isn't the issue
either.

As before, the missing files are all illustrations for the user manual.  They
are named roundedge_nn.jpg, where nn is a number from 14 to 30.  The images will
have to be regenerated even if you are installing over an old version of
RoundEdge, as the numbering of the illustrations has changed.  You can do this
by running POV-Ray with these command line arguments:

+iroundedge.pov +w240 +h180 declare=Rad=1 +a0.05 +am2 +r3 +kff30 +oroundedge_
+sf14

If you are using POV-Ray 3.7, add +fj Compression=90 to the command line.  If
you are using POV-Ray 3.5 or 3.6, you will need to convert the illustrations to
JPEG format.  To match the quality of the other illustrations, use quality 90
and subsampling 1x1,1x1,1x1.

Hi Ricky,

You want a version that works with your macros? If so, that might be quite
difficult given that rlp objects are composed of many types of geometries, torii
being one.

If you meant that my rlp upload is broken somehow, then fixing it is something I
/can/ do :)

Sam

Yes, that is what I meant.

What is up with the Object Collection, anyway? Has it been hacked or something?
When I go to download my file, it's called "POVCollection_507620.zip-_r_n_r_n"
and doesn't contain the include file, the html help file or the example scenes.
Is this happening with all submissions?

Sam

It's not happening with all of them; rlp and possibly ConvexLens are the only
ones I've downloaded that seem deficient.  (I do not know the story with
ConvexLens.)  What's been happening to me is that it limits uploads to 20 files.
The upload page will let you select as many files as you like, but it fails to
upload any more than the first 20.  This has not always been the case, so
something broke somewhere along the line.

At this time, no information is available about the state of the Object
Collection.  Chris Cason is looking into it; I'll leave it up to him to make any
announcements. On my end, I'm investigating the possibility of some file limit
deep within my Linux configuration that's breaking my uploads.

I went ahead and uploaded it to p.b.s-f for now:

Thanks. I took on me to fix your rlp entry in the Object Collection,
adding the missing files (with rename to lower cases, and dismissal of
'&' symbol), and changing square to Square on the relevant file.

( http://lib.povray.org/usersguide/04contributing.html#Files )

ConvexLens is rather empty (a single gif, non conformant filename) which
just stat "test" all over the image. Anyone has a working copy ?

I notice that no new version was added, and that the old one was fixed in-place,
still under Sam's name.  Does this mean that you have privileged access to the
server?

Indeed, it's just fresh on me.
