  Just out of curiosity: Why do you want to?
  Perhaps there's a better solution to the problem.

we are setting up Grid software demo, where we thought of using
POV-RAY as one of the demo application to run on the Grid, Grid
client is Windows and we don't want to show the POV-RAY main
window to the client user, Grid client will send the povray
result back to the server.

pls let me know if you have a better solution to this!

The standard Povray doesn't, but Megapov does. I don't know the actual 
command off the top of my head, and I don't see it right away on the 
Megapov site, but the site does mention that it exists.

You know you've been raytracing too long when your text editor has macro 
keys for each and every POV primitive including the poly object and the 
julia fractal.
