I would like to download all the *.pov files in the povray Object Collection.
How many files are there? Message says 91 objects found.
Is there only 91 *.pov files in the povray Object Collection?

Message says Objects 1 to 10 displayed. But the Next button does not work.
How to access more?

The only way I see to get all the files is to manually download each one
individually, and only if the next button works.  Is there a better way? Is
there one zip file of the collection?  Can someone send the collection to me?

I wrote a bash script to run the 355 povray examples in
debian 8.5 software repository /usr/share/doc/povray/examples/***.pov.
The result can be accessed from
http://pdscript.com/p/debian/example/Computer/index.htm. I would like more *.pov
examples to run and post.

There is a thumbnail view that might help.

No, you can't download the entire collection at once.

Yes, the thumbnail helps. Thank you.  It shows 107 files.
I can manually click that many times.
I ask again: Is that all there is in this collection?
So what other collections are there?
Debian has 355 povray example files.

There is .pov, but also .inc, and maybe .mcr, possibly .txt at least.

I would suggest /manual/ if you want to be sure. That Next button 
problem is an old recurring one I am afraid. :-(
